Where Online Event London, ON, Canada

Join us for this "live event only" episode of Canada Talks as we welcome Dr. Jeff Dahn, a premier authority and researcher of Li-ion batteries. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from Professor Dahn and to ask questions.*

Professor Dahn will describe the advances recently made in modern Li-ion batteries that can enable more than one million miles of driving and many many decades of life. Such batteries are eminently suitable for vehicle to grid applications which society sorely needs to allow more solar and wind on the grid.

NOTE: *At Dr. Dahn's request, this episode will not be recorded. Professor Dahn is not able to answer any questions about the work his lab is doing for Tesla.
