Member Benefits

The NAATBatt Annual meeting is the most important educational and social event in the advanced battery industry. The annual meetings feature thought leadership presentations about topics that are of interest to the industry. The program also includes the Energy Storage Innovation Summit, 20 “flash” presentations about new energy storage-related technologies that could have a major impact on the industry. Presenting technologies must be market ready and available for immediate purchase or license by NAATBatt member firms. Industry awards and member update presentations round out the program, allowing members to see and be seen by others in the industry. But what really separates NAATBatt Annual Meetings from other industry trade shows is its emphasis on social interaction. The foundation of all good business relationships are good personal relationships. NAATBatt Annual Meetings are structured to make sure that there are plenty of opportunities for social interaction among attendees. Networking breaks, receptions, pleasant and relaxing meals, a robust spouses/companion program, and the Advanced Battery Golf & Tennis Tournament insure that no one leaves the meeting without a number of new friends and associates in the industry

Member Site Visit Meetings are a unique feature of NAATBatt Membership. At NAATBatt Member Site Visit Meetings, one NAATBatt member invites the rest of the membership to visit its facility and see its operations. The meeting is followed by a free-to-attend reception and dinner designed to promote networking, industry intelligence gathering and relationship formation. Attendance at Member Site Visit Meetings is open to NAATBatt member firms only. Member Site Visit Meetings are popular events that serve a number of purposes. They allow hosting members to demonstrate capabilities and expertise far in excess of what would be possible at a typical industry trade show or conference. Attendance at some meetings has exceeded 100 persons, many of whom are potential customers, suppliers and partners of the hosting member firm. Visiting members have the an opportunity to learn in depth about the processes, procedures and expertise of another firm. NAATBatt Member Site Visit Meetings provide a win-win opportunity for all NAATBatt members, helping them build their knowledge and their connections in the industry.

Each week, NAATBatt publishes its weekly newsletter called the “Advanced Battery Weekly”. The NAATBatt newsletter summarizes in abbreviated form the major commercial develops in the industry over the past week with an emphasis on developments at and accomplishments by NAATBatt member firms. The newsletter is a “must read” publication in the advanced battery industry and averages more than 1,400 opens each week. As a benefit of membership, NAATBatt member firms are entitled to free advertising in the newsletter and to republish press releases about their accomplishments. The NAATBatt Advanced Battery Weekly helps NAATBatt members build name recognition and enhance their visibility in the industry.

As an industry organization, NAATBatt is invited to attend and exhibit at a number of trade shows each year. Those trade shows have included programs focused on solar energy, wind energy, microgrid, defense energy, electric vehicles, stationary storage and other advanced applications of advanced battery technology. NAATBatt uses its booth to at those programs to educate visitors about the importance of energy storage technology. But NAATBatt also uses its booth to promote the commercial interests of its individual member firms. Under the terms of NAATBatt’s Sponsored Conference Program, NAATBatt member firms have the opportunity to use the NAATBatt booth to distribute information and literature about their commercial products. NAATBatt produces a “warm leads” report after each program, providing NAATBatt members with contact information for every person who visited the NAATBatt booth and made inquiry about a member or about an issue that is of interest to a member. The “warm leads” reports following NAATBatt Sponsored Conferences are the most cost effective lead generation service that any NAATBatt members can obtain. The reports themselves and can pay for the entire cost of a NAATBatt membership.

NAATBatt International has a history of successful government relations initiatives. NAATBatt’s government relations tactic of choice is to organize Washington “field trips” by C-level officers of its member firms. During those trips, NAATBatt executives meet as a group with high level government officials and talk with them directly about specific issues that are of concern to NAATBatt. No lobbyists are involved. NAATBatt field trips get the full attention of senior government officials and have been extremely effective in promoting policies that are important to NAATBatt member firms. Past NAATBatt field trips have advocated for such initiatives as enabling pay for performance schemes for ancillary services and ensuring adequate funding for distributed energy storage demonstration projects at the DOE. A NAATBatt government relations effort promoting adequate testing and certification of electric bus drivetrains in currently being planned. The Executive Directors Notes commentary in the Advanced Battery Weekly newsletter is regarded as the voice of the industry on policy matters. Government officials, who understand the fundamental importance of electrochemical energy storage technology, take that voice seriously.
