Innovations in 48V Technology Online 2020 is the event for people shaping the future of 48V. This technology is becoming the go-to solution for meeting stricter emissions requirements, as the car industry transitions to full electrification. 

Even though a considerable amount of progress has been made in the last year, many questions remainIn this tailored event, you will be able to see presentations from OEMs and suppliers about innovative solutions in power electronics, thermal management, battery technology, wire harness and the electrification of auxiliary functions.


This session will examine:
  • Market trends in China – why are we using 48V instead of (P)HEV
  • Market demand and consumer reaction from a reliability and durability standpoint
  • Future outlook
Fadi Zara, Director Vehicle Development and eMobility, FAW Co. Ltd


Zhuhai COSMX is a worldwide Top Four Li-ion pouch cell manufacturer. It has successfully commercialized an innovative Capacitor Assisted Battery which has greatly-enhanced cold cranking performance, has excellent high temperature reliability and a long lifespan. It also possesses significant cost advantages. These features make CAB technology a promising solution for 12V/48V systems.
