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.
