Thermal Management for EV/HEV USA Conference

Focusing in Optimizing Cost, Efficiency, Fast Charging & Range

September 19-21, 2023- Detroit, MI, United States

After the record-breaking success of our Thermal Management conference in Munich in February, the flagship Thermal Management for EV/HEV USA comes to Michigan this September.

According to a Lead Project Manager at one of the big-3 vehicle manufacturing companies in Michigan, thermal management for EVs and HEVs is not only going to be around for a very long time but is also much more of a priority now than it has ever been. Right here, right now, the OEM has several priorities;
  1. Lower costs while leveraging advances in production and energy efficiencies,
  2. Optimize fast charging,
  3. Manage thermal runaway and
  4. Add more range to a vehicle by having a more efficient thermal system.  
We invite you to be part of this full three-day technical conference, with parallel streams, over 45 presentations, 35+ speakers and innumerable opportunities for learning, networking and knowledge sharing with your colleagues from thermal management, e-motor technology, and propulsion segments.

Co-located with the Advanced E-Motor Technology USA 2023 Conference

Our research team has spoken to dozens of thermal management experts at electric vehicle manufacturing companies in Michigan and Silicon Valley to uncover their greatest pain points, challenges and solutions that are the need of the hour right now. The highly technical agenda for the Thermal Management for EV/HEV USA 2023 conference is a direct reflection of where the industry is right now, and it delivers actionable solutions to the OEM's biggest challenges, including:
  • Battery Thermal Management
  • Thermal Runaway Mitigation & Propagation
  • Fast and Ultra-Fast Charging
  • 800V Energy Supply Systems
  • Latest Innovations in Battery Technologies
  • Powertrain Thermal Management
  • Cabin Cooling & Comfort
We invite you to be part of this three-day technical conference, taking place in Detroit, Michigan, in an environment that is built for essential face-to-face conversations and business, and in a format that encourages lesson sharing, learning and dialogue. Hear from leading TMS subject matter experts from US' most prolific OEM and Tier-1s, supported by best-in-class Tier-2 companies, as they deliver vetted presentations on top thermal management themes.
