Boston-Power International Chairman Christina Lampe-Onnerud will be there meeting-and-greeting with industry movers-and-shakers.

And she's participating in the Automotive News World Congress, joining a Who's Who industry list of speakers from GM, Toyota, Renault-Nissan, Mazda, Ford, BorgWarner, Chrysler, Hyundai, Nexteer and others. Her panel - China: What's the status of the China automotive industry and where are the opportunities for growth? - will address arguably one of the most important topics on the minds of the industry in the US and around the world.
With 2011 marking the first time in GM's 102 year history that it sold more vehicles in China than in the US as just one of proof points too numerous to list here, all eyes remain steadfastly fixed on that market.
Christina has abundant real-world insights to share. Among the most heavily funded developers of next-generation lithium-ion batteries for EVs and PHEVs, Boston-Power in September announced $125 million in funding to substantially expand its focus and operations in China. The funding comprised private equity capital in a round led by fast-growing Beijing-based VC firm GSR Ventures and government support from China. The company added more funding just before the holidays - all going toward building one of the world's most advanced battery manufacturing operations in the Shanghai Corridor and paired with a R&D center in Beijing.
These recent events are hardly Boston-Power's first forays into China. Christina prototyped the early versions of her battery cells there - funding it out of her own pocket and trading her technical and manufacturing skills in return for access to a production line.

U.S. Battery-Maker Says China May Lead the World in Electric Vehicles | Boston-Power [cached]

The most fundamental reason is that "China has committed to achieving sustainable energy innovations in all aspects of society, including transportation," says Christina Lampe-Onnerud, who founded Boston-Power in 2005 and is the company's international chairman. China is now the number one auto market in the world, and is poised to claim that rank for electric vehicles as well.

A clear national policy brings certainty to that market. China is determined to create a basic electric car for people in urban areas, Lampe-Onnerud notes. Europe's approach is clear too: launch innovations in high-end cars first then let them trickle down. The U.S. government, however, "is torn on its national priorities," Lampe-Onnerud says.
Lampe-Onnerud stresses the innovation point.
But Lampe-Onnerud, a well-known battery entrepreneur and innovator who has 80 patents in various stages of filing, maintains that lithium-ion technology has plenty of room left for innovation. The product line Boston-Power is selling to BAIC-called "Swing"-"is really only the second generation," she says. It still has a long evolutionary life.
The Swing batteries have 50 percent more energy density by volume and 45 percent more by weight compared to typical batteries on the market. The system for BAIC will last 10 years even if frequently recharged. It will work down to -40 degrees Celsius-"It gets cold in Beijing," Lampe-Onnerud says. And it has passed the same high safety standards the industry, and Boston-Power itself, have imposed. Overall, Lampe-Onnerud says, second-generation lithium-ion batteries from her company and others "are better in all aspects-higher energy density, long life, quick recharge-which to some people is a bit of a surprise."
Auto industry culture, more than technical innovation, may be the largest barrier to widespread adoption of electric cars. "It takes a long time to gain market acceptance," Lampe-Onnerud says.
