Prime time for batteries
Forecasts very on how many, and when, electrified vehicles will hit
the streets, but auto and battery makers are ramping up efforts
like there's no tomorrow.
In energy storage, materials matter
Batteries being electrochemical devices, innovation and advances in
chemistry and materials are key to what everyone agrees is the need
for improved performance and life.
Comparing thermal characteristics of Li-ion
Most Li-ion battery suppliers require that the cell temperature be
as uniform as possible to achieve optimal battery performance and
avoid battery system failure. But some materials in Li-ion cells
have low thermal stability.
The world plugs into EVs
As matters begin to settle in terms of connector types,
charge-station makers are ramping up to meet the needs of a growing
population of plug-in vehicles.
