QuantumScape to host and livestream Solid-State Battery Showcase Event on December 8, 2020

QuantumScape Corporation, Westbury, New York, a leader in the development of next generation solid-state lithium-metal batteries for use in electric vehicles (EVs), has announced that it will be providing a first look at its solid-state electric vehicle battery technology at its “Solid-State Battery Showcase” on December 8, 2020, at 11am ET. The event can be accessed via the following link: quantumscape.com/livestream.

Jagdeep Singh, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of QuantumScape, will unveil new performance data on QuantumScape’s unique solid-state battery technology, demonstrating how the company has addressed some of the fundamental issues that are holding back widespread adoption of solid-state batteries. The innovation in QuantumScape’s technology is designed to enable the EV industry to move beyond the performance and physical limits of the current lithium-ion design, which should facilitate more widespread electrification of the transportation sector and enable a lower-carbon future.

The event will also feature an all-star panel of battery scientists and automotive experts who will discuss their views on solid-state batteries and QuantumScape’s technology, and what this technological advancement could mean for the EV industry. The panel will include Prof. Stan Whittingham, co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery and winner of the 2019 Nobel prize in chemistry; Prof. Paul Albertus, former head of the US DOE ARPA-E IONCS solid-state battery program and professor of chemical engineering at the University of Maryland; Prof. Venkat Vishwanathan, battery expert, former lithium-air researcher, and professor of mechanical engineering at Carnegie-Mellon University; Prof. Juergen Leohold, former head of group research at Volkswagen; JB Straubel, co-founder and former CTO of Tesla, and co-founder and CEO of Redwood Materials. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Dave Danielson, first employee at ARPA-E, former head of the US DOE’s EERE program, Precourt scholar at Stanford University, and managing director at Breakthrough Energy Ventures.
