Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

The automotive sector in India is dominated by two-wheelers (scooters, motorbikes) and three-wheelers (autos, rickshaws) that play a significant role in last mile mobility in the country. The battery swapping model is a solution to the inadequate charging infrastructure in the country. With a large addressable market and many OEMs offering swap-capable vehicles, many start-ups are now emerging, which aim to offer swapping services.

ChargedEVs: Charging Infrastructure Technologies

ChargedEVs: Charging Infrastructure Technologies

ChargedEVs is an online conference featuring various talks and presentations on the electric vehicle (EV) market. They are largely given by companies involved in the supply chain or componentry relating to the EV industry. The event is often a good way to keep up to date with the latest products and developments from these companies, as well as some more general EV charging component and engineering trends. This article covers several presentations relating to the EV charging infrastructure.

Battery-Powered and Mobile DC Fast Charging — Players & Analysis

Battery-Powered and Mobile DC Fast Charging — Players & Analysis

Legacy DC fast charging stations are time- and capital-intensive to install. Battery-integrated fast charging units require no civil work and can operate without a grid connection (in some cases) or only require connection to the medium voltage grid (much like level 2 chargers). This also introduces a new business model — infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) — which caters to grid constraint urban areas where demand for fast charging exists. Portable, mobile charging units are also offering roadside assistance to stranded EVs. This article explores the commercial activity happening in these two segments and outlines some prominent companies and their products.

Battery Swapping for Cars: Key Players

Battery Swapping for Cars: Key Players

Battery swapping is an emerging alternative to fast charging EVs that is taking off mainly in China. The battery swapping industry is seeing large investments and government support in China with a few brave players swimming against an overwhelming tide. While the majority of the business activity is occurring in China by local operators, some key players are demonstrating the viability of this technology in other parts of the world too. This premium article covers some of the key players involved in the battery swapping industry.

Introduction to Battery Swapping for Electric Cars

Introduction to Battery Swapping for Electric Cars

As the EV population is booming, quicker recharging needs have been the need of the hour. Battery swapping (which has taken off in China for the car segment) allows an EV user to drive into a battery swapping station (BSS) and replace a depleted battery for a fully charged one in under 5 minutes. While conventional cable based charging has had years of development, battery swapping is in its nascent stages and has major hurdles to cross before being offered as a widespread complementary solution to conductive charging. This article provides an overview into the market, the enabling technology and players.

Bi-directional Charging and Utilities

Bi-directional Charging and Utilities

Widespread and uncontrolled EV charging could double peak loads on distribution networks. Yet EVs using smart, two-way charging can feed power back into the network from their batteries at times of peak demand, recharge at times that avoid peak demand on the electric grid and store surplus power when demand is low. The energy and mobility sectors will converge in the future. Energy will flow bi-directionally - from the grid into an electric car and discharged to power appliances, homes and back to the grid itself. This premium article covers the current state of bi-directional technology, limitations and the roadmap to achieving full vehicle to everything (V2X) capability. It also includes an analysis into the role of utilities and why their participation in the growth of charging infrastructure is important.
