12:00 â?? 1:00 PM Registration, light lunch, networking.? Your choice of classic club sandwiches, Italian hoagies, stuffed pitas or croissant sandwiches, served with salad, chips, cookie and beverage

? 1:00 PM – Opening remarks

? 1:15 PMEric Wesoff, Senior Analyst, Greentech Media. Publisher,Venture Power Report

Electric Vehicles – The wide range of EV start-ups and the variety of technology innovations, from materials to fuel cells to batteries that are spurring this next transportation revolution.

1:45 PMCatherine Dunwoody, Executive Director California Fuel Cell Partnership

Industry and government consortium planning and implementing a pre-commercial fuel cell vehicle demonstration project in California.

2:15 PM ? Dr. Kim McGrath, Director of Fuel Cell Research, QuantumSphere Inc.

Development of advanced electrodes coated with the companyâ??s Nano NiFeâ?¢ catalysts to accelerate the production of clean hydrogen for industrial applications. These nano-enabled electrodes increase hydrogen gas output in electrolysis systems by 300%, at 85% efficiency, and pave the way for on-demand hydrogen needed for industrial and mass transportation applications.

2:50 â?? 3:20 PM â?? Break & Tour of? Fuel Cell Plug-in Electric Vehicle

? 3:20 PMChet Sandberg, Technical Strategy Manager, Altair Nanotechologies

Altairnano battery cells are positioned between a super capacitor and a battery. The capabilities of this technology permit rapid power charging and discharging which can be useful in regenerative braking for hybrid cars and buses as well as other significant new applications.

3:55 PMDeepak Srivastava, Chief Technical Officer, Nanoexa

Atomic scale design, synthesis, and performance of high rate Li-ion battery materials for PHEVs and EVs using quantum simulated materials database and search engine technology platform. Nanoexa high-rate and high energy density cathode material and 18650 cylindrical cells.

4:30 PM – Symposium concluding remarks. Symposium Closes
