Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

In 2020 vessel owners have had to deal with an 'emissions control world' for the first time. Unlike most other mobility sectors, which predominantly tend to switch partly or completely to a traction battery in order to meet emissions targets, a mixture of solutions have a role to play for boats and ships.

Mining Goes Electric

Mining Goes Electric

Electrics and robotics squares the circle of seeking a wider variety of depleting materials in nastier, more remote places from the seafloor to four kilometres underground, up remote mountains and later outer space. Zero-emission microgrids on-site, sensors everywhere and new information and communications technology lubricate the process.

Immersion of Electric Vehicle Batteries: The Best Way to Keep Cool?

Immersion of Electric Vehicle Batteries: The Best Way to Keep Cool?

The electric vehicle market is growing rapidly, and with it the demand for fast charging, increased energy density and improved safety. Something that all these areas have in common is heat. Charging a battery quickly generates a lot of heat, with the extra energy capacity of modern and upcoming electric vehicle batteries, extracting this heat becomes more challenging.

Electric Medium and Heavy-Duty Trucks; Evolution and Revolution

Electric Medium and Heavy-Duty Trucks; Evolution and Revolution

Along with the rest of the automotive sector, the medium and heavy-duty truck market is evolving. Governments around the world, recognising the potentially catastrophic repercussions of unfettered climate change and witnessing the detrimental impact on human health from vehicle exhaust pollutant emissions in urban environments, are taking decisive action, that will, in the coming decades, drive vehicle manufacturers to zero on-road exhaust emission powertrain solutions. Consequently, the days of the fossil fuel powered combustion engine are numbered.

EV Growth Requires Investment Along the Li-ion Supply Chain

EV Growth Requires Investment Along the Li-ion Supply Chain

Historically, growth in the Li-ion battery market has been due to consumer electronics. Moving forward, Li-ion battery demand will be driven by growth in electric vehicle adoption, which has grown steadily over the last 10 years. Subsidies in countries such as Norway and China, especially, have encouraged EV sales.
