Battery Chemistry Promises Safer High-Voltage Lithium-Ion Batteries

Battery Chemistry Promises Safer High-Voltage Lithium-Ion Batteries

For the first time, researchers have found a new way to improve lithium-ion batteries. They successfully increased not only the voltage delivery of a lithium-ion battery but also its ability to suppress dangerous conditions that affect the current range of batteries. This improved lithium-ion battery could make longer journeys in electric vehicles possible and lead to the creation of a new generation of home energy storage, both with improved fire safety.

Hot Performance and Cool Operation for Electric Vehicle Motors

Hot Performance and Cool Operation for Electric Vehicle Motors

The market for electric vehicles is set to exceed $1,000bn by 2030 but potential consumers are still concerned with range, cost and safety. Whilst this draws attention initially to the battery, an equally important factor and unifying component of electric vehicles is the electric motor and its effective thermal management.

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Electrification and autonomy will ultimately dominate the automotive space. Future autonomous electric vehicles (EVs), especially shared autonomous fleets such as robotaxis will have no driver to perform the charging tasks. In that case, how will future autonomous EVs be refuelled? This premium article will provide an overview of charging solutions for autonomous EVs including conductive robotic charging and wireless charging. Alternative solutions such as battery swapping will also be discussed.
