These Four Questions Can Boost Innovativeness in the EV Space

Much like the internet was in the early nineties, electric vehicles (EVs) are a new and highly disruptive technology today. Startups in the EV industry as well as larger, established automotive companies have been developing new technologies in the EV space, with firms such as Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) and Aptera making advancements that could completely change vehicular transportation. And speaking of Tesla, the pioneering EV firm has achieved plenty in just over a decade in the game. Tesla introduced the Roadster in 2008, proving that EVs are a viable concept, and the company has been refining its technology ever…

Timing of EV Battery Charging Could Lower Carbon Footprint Further

The future of transportation is electric. In a bid to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality, several countries, cities and states have announced plans to gradually phase out internal combustion engine vehicles for emission-free electric vehicles (“EVs”). Transportation, specifically passenger sedans and SUVs, presently account for close to 20% of carbon emissions in the Unites States, and research has proven that switching to rechargeable EVs can reduce carbon emissions by a wide margin. According to a recent study published in “Environmental Science and Technology,” we can further reduce emissions by tackling one of the major issues still plaguing the…

Solar Farms Could Give Aging EV Batteries a Second Life

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) represent the next frontier of vehicular travel. Powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs, these vehicles produce zero emissions at the tailpipe, making them the ideal vehicle for a green economy. However, lithium-ion batteries lose their capacity over time, and by the time they hit 80% of their original range, they don’t have enough juice to avail the energy needed to propel an EV. As demand for and adoption of EVs increases, we will most likely see an influx of such used batteries. According to a new study, these batteries still have plenty of life left in them,…

Are Power Grids in Cities Ready for Widespread EV Uptake?

As part of a global push to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality, several governments, cities and states have issued bans against the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles in favor of electric vehicles (“EVs”). Europe undoubtedly leads the race towards electrifying its roads thanks to its ambitious ICE vehicle bans, with at least seven European countries pledging to ban the sale of new ICE vehicles over the next 30 years. But as EV adoption increases over time, will power grids in cities be able to handle the increased demand for electricity? The European Union saw a 122% increase…

Gov. Cuomo Unveils Largest EV Charging Station

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) represent a future most governments are looking to. The vehicles are powered by clean, renewable energy with zero emissions at the tailpipe, making EVs the perfect vehicle for a carbon-neutral economy. However, electric vehicles are still a long way from widespread adoption, and one of the reasons consumers shy away from the technology is due to insufficient and often unreliable public-charging facilities. That may soon be a thing of the past in New York. As part of an effort by the New York Power Authority, together with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to…

Are EV Makers Assuming Too Much Regarding Battery Prices?

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to replace internal-combustion-engine vehicles over the next couple of decades. EVs run on clean, renewable energy and produce minimal emissions at the tailpipe, but there’s one caveat: they are too expensive for most consumers. Unlike internal-combustion-engine vehicles, EVs are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that require minerals such as cobalt, nickel, lithium, and manganese to function. These minerals need to be mined, processed and converted into pure chemical compounds before use in batteries — a process that can cost a pretty penny. The consensus has been that, over time, battery prices would fall, making it…
