Half of li-ion battery business will be for hybrid and electric cars

Hybrid and pure electric cars will be much more than half of the value of this market by the end of the decade. About 70% of the relatively small number of manufacturers of these have committed to only three suppliers over the next three years. However, everything about Li-ion is changing.

New generation GaN and SiC semiconductors will be designed into EVs

New generation GaN and SiC semiconductors will be designed into EVs

SiC devices will be widely designed into electric vehicles from 2014 and GaN from 2018. With manufacturers currently designing vehicles to be launched onto the market in 2018, it is predicted that by this date GaN semiconductors will attain price parity with silicon devices. This will make the technology attractive as a replacement for silicon for use in the power electronics in both pure electric and hybrid vehicles.

90% of heavy industrial EVs using regenerative braking by 2024

Energy harvesting is increasingly used in the tiniest electronic components right up to multiple KW lift and swingarm braking on huge construction vehicles where 1.5 KW thermoelectric harvesting is planned next. However, electrodynamics and photovoltaics are most popular so far, increasingly in combination, and application in vehicles is of increasing importance.
