ECS Detroit Section Hosts: “The global EV market: Driving Force for Battery Technology for the Next Decade”

Register for discussion with Tu Le on July 12, 2023 

The ECS Detroit Section invites you to “The global EV market: Driving Force for Battery Technology for the Next Decade,” a discussion with global auto industry expert Tu Le.


There is high interest in Electric Vehicle (EV) technology in our community, but the local perspective should be enriched by global views to lead to good outcomes. 

Tu Le will discuss the EV market from major developments to less visible but very important details. To what extent will Chinese EVs be in the U.S. market in the future? What does it have to do with the latest Gigafactory announcements? What will original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have to do better in Asian markets? What batteries will have to be manufactured?

Student poster awards

Students are encouraged to present posters. Up to three posters will be presented at the event. The first three students contacting the section at about presenting their work receive USD $100 and one year of free access to ECS Detroit Section events.
