The Chemical Society of Japan will co-host "JAPAN-UK Science, Technology & Innovation Symposium 2013 in LONDON".
At this symposium, Dr. Yoshino will lecture on "The course of development of the lithium-ion battery and outlook for the future", and Professor West will lecture on "Overview of materials development for lithium battery applications in Li-ion batteries".
The symposium is focused on highlighting the development and future of the lithium-ion battery (LIB), gaining perspective on the key to success in research and development, know-how in launching a new business, and how to forecast future market developments.
The current commercial LIB was invented by Dr. Yoshino in 1985. With its small size and light weight, the LIB rapidly became the mainstream in mobile phones, laptop computers, and many other portable electronic devices which have extended access to information throughout society. The global LIB market has grown to some seven billion UK pounds (one trillion Japanese yen), and the research is increasingly concentrated on application of the LIB to large-scale systems including transportation, load-leveling in smartgrids, and stationary power storage.
