The Most POWERFUL Conference of the Year, The Battery Show 2022

Grant Harrell, host of Are We There Yet? had the pleasure of attending Informa Markets’ The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan from September 13-15, 2022. The show featured the latest trends and topics in the transportation and mobility industry. It is the “largest battery and electric vehicle technologies trade show in America.” 

When it comes to the state of the industry, Harrell said, “and overall, I can confirm, fitting within the theme of the “Are We There Yet?” series, electric vehicles (EVs) and battery technology are here! We are in fact here and it was incredible to spend some time speaking with the companies that are leading the charge within the electric vehicle battery industry.” 

The trade show was a huge hit and a definite comeback event after the pandemic.  Highlights of the conference include:  

  • 10,000+ attendees including GE, Navistar, Ford, Apple, and SpaceX 
  • 750+ exhibitors and companies 
  • 150+ Keynote speakers and instructors including Ford, LG, the Department of Energy 
  • 72+ hours of education available for attendees 

Harrell’s insights and takeaways from this year’s conference – battery technology is here. “I was amazed at everything from charging stations, electric vehicle manufacturers, OEM manufacturers of batteries, lithium-ion, and other technologies, and truly it’s here!” 

He continued to note that the prevalence of EVs on the road today continues to grow with a number of leading manufacturers with models visible on the road daily. Charging stations are appearing more often in common commercial areas. Grocery stores, malls, gas stations, and parking garages are some of the more common areas charging stations are appearing. 

Battery technology has come a long way and there is still room for improvement. And it’s not just EV batteries. The trade show featured batteries used within aviation, robots, and drones for example – all forms of mobility that utilize batteries. 

Over 20 companies are featured in total throughout the video, highlighting the technology and services featured at the trade show. Companies include Zerova, ProEV, American Battery Solutions, Motive Power, and Kawasaki Robotics to name just a few!
