1:35 Incentives and Regulatory Drivers Supporting California’s Transition to Zero-Emission Public Transportation and Goods Movement

Leslie Goodbody, Engineer, California Air Resources Board (CARB)

Just as California has led the way in transforming the automotive sector, it has also taken a leadership role in driving transit, trucking, airports and seaports toward zero-emission technologies, especially in and near those communities most impacted by poor air quality. This talk will provide an overview of CARB’s regulatory strategies, incentive programs, and demonstration projects that are helping to further advance and commercialize the use of battery electric and fuel cell technology in trucks, buses and cargo-handling equipment.

Dave Anderson, Manager, The Lion Electric, Co.

2:15 Electric Vehicles: Emerging Markets, Battery Demand & Chemistry Choices

Alex Holland, PhD, Energy Storage Technology Analyst, IDTechEx

Battery development is dominated by the electric car market, but the electrification of transport will be widespread, beyond just cars, and different modes of transport will have their own performance requirements. Which battery chemistries can meet them? IDTechEx appraises various technologies, including Li-S, solid-state and advanced Li-ion batteries and their suitability for different applications. Through extensive primary and secondary research, IDTechEx provides technical and market insight on various transport applications and the energy storage technologies used within them.

2:35 Global EV Bus Market Outlook

Shmuel De-Leon, CEO, Shmuel De-Leon Energy, Ltd.

EV busses are driving a successful penetration rate worldwide and specifically in China. What are the market drivers and how did the changes in the Chinese subsidies policy effect that market during 2019? E-bus batteries are large and responsible for ~18% of all Li-ion cells manufactured capacity worldwide during 2019. Review of the main Li-ion cells chemistries used for that market. Review of the main e-bus cells and battery pack makers in China and out of China. Market expectations for 2020.

3:55 Operationalizing Battery Life Optimization in an All-Electric, Autonomous Vehicle Fleet

Ken Ferguson, PhD, Senior Technical Operations Engineer, Technical Operations, Cruise

The usage profile of a vehicle in an electric, autonomous vehicle fleet will be significantly different than the usage profile for a typical consumer vehicle. Due to the high cost of HV battery replacements in such a fleet, strategies for extending battery life will be critical to the financial viability of autonomous ride-share applications. In this talk we will explore methods for operationalizing techniques to extend battery lifetime in an autonomous fleet.

4:15 ACTIA Battery Packs for Zero-Emission Buses

Greg Fritz, EV Business Unit Manager, ACTIA Group

ACTIA will present specifications, field data and simulation results for battery packs used in zero-emission buses (ZEBs). The specific focus will be on the battery chemistries and pack designs used to meet the different requirements of fuel-cell versus fast-charge versus overnight-charge transit ZEBs.

4:35 Battery Performance in Fleet Electrification

Jim Castelaz, Founder & CTO, Motiv Power Systems

This presentation will focus on battery performance for fleets utilizing Motiv-powered all-electric trucks and buses and will highlight field operations data from several diverse fleets. Real-world examples include vehicle performance reports on routes and missions from a variety of industry verticals, including delivery services and school transportation. Motiv will also present data centered around its approach of using highly reliable and cost-effective mass-market battery packs to power these vehicles.

9:05 PANEL DISCUSSION: Real-World Applications of (or Applying) Zero-Emission Technology in Heavy-Duty Vehicles and Off-Road Equipment


Leslie Goodbody, Engineer, Innovative Heavy-Duty Strategies, Mobile Source Control Division, California Air Resources Board

Heavy-duty vehicles and off-road equipment are responsible for a significant portion of California’s particulate, smog-forming, and climate change emissions, and for causing disproportionate health impacts to communities near the ports and along freight corridors. This panel will start with an overview of California’s strategies, regulatory efforts, and incentive programs all designed to reduce emissions in heavy-duty and off-road vehicle fleets, followed by presentations on projects underway demonstrating the use of zero-emission technology in drayage and delivery trucks and cargo handling equipment.

9:45 Transpower Update on Design, Development and Deployment of Commercial MD & HD Trucks

Joshua Goldman, Vice President, TransPower HQ

TransPower develops the key drive system components (batteries, drive motors, inverters, accessories and chargers) to enable the future of medium-duty and heavy-duty commercial vehicle applications. TransPower will be updating the industry to its latest developments in design, development and deployment of its technologies for medium-duty and heavy-duty commercial vehicle applications.

11:20 Battery and Battery Considerations for Medium and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicle Applications

Andrew F. Burke, PhD, Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis

This paper is concerned with the specification and design of lithium batteries to be used in medium- and heavy-duty (MD/HD) electric vehicles of various types. Comparisons are made of cycle life, power density, and thermal management requirements for batteries in light-duty and MD/HD duty applications. For the most part at the present time, batteries for the MD/HD applications are assembled using cells developed for the light-duty applications and it is assumed that the battery pack cost ($/kWh) will be the same for the two quite different applications. The reasonableness of this assumption is discussed in the paper.

11:40 Case Study: Deployment of 27 Electric Heavy-Duty Trucks at 3 Facilities

Michael Baker, Air Resources Engineer, Innovative Strategies and Incentives, California Air Resources Board

Through a State of California competitive solicitation, this project was awarded a grant to deploy 24 class 8 yard trucks and three class 5 service trucks for three different users at at two rail yards and one warehouse, and includes infrastructure (23 EVSE). The project experienced a variety of circumstances. The vehicles were deployed in two phases, with input from users of phase one yard trucks applied to design for an improved and more commercially-viable phase two version of the yard truck.

12:00 pm Electric Vehicle Battery Standards Development

Bhavya Kotak, Research Associate, Safe Electromobility, Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt, University of Applied Science Ingolstadt, Bavaria

Electric vehicles (EVs) possess a high amount of energy within their batteries. During EV accidents, all this energy is released in one go and often causes a fire. Such incidents have raised concerns regarding battery safety, subsequently challenging the regulatory bodies that develop the battery testing standards. This study demonstrates the gap that has been identified on standards such as ISO 12405, IEC 62660 and GB-T31485 that are essential to be addressed for the safety of battery and the EV consumer.

Michael Masquelier, CEO, WAVE

Wireless charging presents a practical and economical solution for EV adoption and solves limitations such as battery size, cost, recharge speed, vehicle range, and space constraints of charging infrastructure. This session will cover the commercial viability of advanced wireless charging technology with examples of systems for transit, port, industrial, off-road, and other heavy-duty vehicles. Fully automated, hands-free charging operation enabled by ruggedized pads embedded in the roadway and vehicle-mounted receiving units with further discussion of high-power deployments and synergy with future autonomous vehicles will also be covered.


3:00 Unlocking the Full Potential of Li-Ion Batteries

Pavel Calderon, CCO, EVLedger

Welcome to an in-depth session focusing on upcoming challenges of our sustainable future. How is our electric transport and power segment developing? What future challenges need to be met?

3:20 Cell Format Analysis for Urban Air Mobility

Martin Talke, Associate Principal, Umlaut

In the current development of electrical vertical take-off and landing vehicles, the current designs of the battery pack use mostly round cell format, primarily because it is easily and cheaply available. This presentation will evaluate and analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each of the common cell types–round, prismatic and pouch–in a design of a battery pack that meets the requirements for safety, energy density and total costs of ownership eVTOLs and/or aircrafts.
