SusTech 2021 Featured Presentation – Enabling What Customers Want by Dr. Benjamin Park


SusTech 2021 announces that Dr. Benjamin Park, Founder & Chief Technology Officer of Enevate Corporation, will deliver a featured presentation on “Enabling What Customers Want: The Story of Enevate’s Technology”

Customers demand more and more and vehicle companies will have to compete on features people want. In order to drive widespread adoption of EVs, the vehicles will not only have to match that of ICE vehicles, but they will have to be even more convenient than gas cars. EVs should be able to charge in the same amount of time as ICE vehicles as well as offering other value-added features not available on ICE vehicles. Enevate’s pure silicon Li-ion battery technology features unique properties including extreme fast charge while increasing high energy density, wide temperature operation, safety, and reduced cost to help break down barriers to mass adoption of electric vehicles.


Dr. Benjamin Park founded Enevate (originally Carbon Micro Battery) in 2005 and, as CTO, leads the battery research, development, and engineering efforts. With more than 18 years of experience, he is an expert in surface and bulk chemistries, novel battery manufacturing techniques, battery materials screening and development, and battery chemistry. Ben has authored more than 45 book chapters, technical journals, talks and conference publications and has more than 100 patents issued or filed. He holds a doctorate in mechanical and aerospace engineering from the University of California, Irvine, a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University, and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Seoul National University in Korea. Dr. Park is also the recipient of several awards, including the Orange County Business Journal Innovator of the Year and the Estus H. and Vashti L. Magoon Award for Excellence in Teaching.
