The Energy-Storage industry is entering a period of rapid growth. Vehicle electrification is gaining momentum with double-digit annual growth expected in the foreseeable future. The large, low-cost, high-performance batteries under development to meet automotive requirements are also becoming enablers for other new, evolving markets, including specialized tools, utility storage, and off-road applications. This is the time for investment in research, new materials, components, and production processes. But wise investment, by a corporation or a financial institution anywhere in the supply chain, requires an insightful, comprehensive, and unbiased analysis of key parameters.

The role of Total Battery Consulting Industry Reports is to supply this analysis. In 2017 we are offering five reports, all geared provide critical information on some key aspects of advanced battery technology, applications, and markets.
