SHANGHAI, CHINA—Monday afternoon, Nov. 14—Who better to open the 2011 Vehicle Battery Summit (VBS) than the auto industry’s best-known “battery guru,” Dr. Menahem Anderman? Founder of Total Battery Consulting and the annual Advanced Automotive Batteries U.S.A. conference, Dr. Anderman is one of the event’s co-organizers (along with SAE China and the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC).

Dr. Anderman greeted the hundreds of event participants and gave an overview of the week’s agenda. He is a long-time partner of SAE International and brings his straightforward, keen insights to our annual EV and hybrid events.

2011 SAE President Richard Kleine warmly welcomed the audience following Dr. Anderman’s kickoff. Kleine is Vice President, Quality and Business Enterprise, at diesel-engine maker Cummins.

China’s plans for EVs, plug-in vehicles, and other various hybrids—from OEM production and supply to building the charging infrastructure to support it—were outlined in Monday’s keynote address, presented by Dr. Zhang Jianuei, Vice President of CATARC.

I’ll have details of Dr. Jianuei’s discussion of his country’s 12th Five Year Plan and New Energy Vehicle Plan in my next blog. Check it at
