Danish Researchers Aim to Develop Next-Gen EV Battery

Although electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to replace internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles over the next few decades, they currently account for a small fraction of global car sales. One issue that has consistently stood in the way of widespread EV adoption is recharging times, with EV batteries taking much longer to recharge compared to refueling ICE vehicles. For most countries to achieve their EV adoption and climate goals, battery companies and EV makers would have to design electric vehicle batteries that can recharge in an incredibly short time without sustaining any damage. Danish researchers from Aarhus University are working…

AI Could Help Find EV Charging Infrastructure Gaps by Reading User Reviews

Plenty of drivers would like to switch to electric vehicles (“EVs”) because they produce zero emissions at the tailpipe and are generally cheaper to maintain and fuel over the lifetime of the vehicle. However, the current network of public charging stations doesn’t inspire much confidence in prospective EV drivers, with most drivers being wary of running out of charge without a charging station in sight. The fact that most of the charging stations are largely run by independent entities with no connection to each other and that don’t share data makes it difficult to build a reliable network of charging…

Factory Produces EV Batteries That Can Be Fully Charged in Five Minutes

The journey toward electrifying the roads is well underway, but one major issue that has consistently stood in the way of widespread electric vehicle (“EV”) adoption is charging. Not only is the current network of public-charging stations barely enough to support the increasing numbers of electric vehicles, but recharging an EV takes much longer than refueling a petrol or diesel vehicle. To solve this problem, EV makers, automakers and battery companies have been working on fast-charging technology that can recharge a battery in as little as 10 minutes without damaging it. StoreDot, an Israeli lithium-ion battery company has developed lithium-ion…

President Biden’s Order on Purchasing EVs to Boost Sector

On Jan. 25, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order dubbed Buy America. This order establishes new guidelines to be followed while the government spends its allotted budget for purchasing goods and services. In that executive order, President Biden directed that the entire government fleet should be replaced with electric vehicles, a move that could see an additional 645,000 EVs added onto U.S. roads. This would translate to a 40% increase of electric vehicles that are currently in use within the country. The executive order was scant on details regarding how the replacement of the fleet would be…

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) Acquires Stake in Self-Driving EV Venture

The electric vehicle (“EV”) sector is one of the hottest industries right now — and for good reason. Everyone wants a piece of the electric action, from EV start-ups and veteran automakers to companies that didn’t even dabble in the auto industry in the first place. Tesla may currently be at the top of the EV game, but it will have to contend with several players battling to secure a share of the young EV industry as time passes. Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT), a company primarily known for developing, manufacturing, licensing and selling computer software, electronics and personal computers, has…

EVgo Plans to Go Public as Demand for EV Charging Services Skyrockets

Despite the devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic, 2020 turned out to be a great year for electric vehicles (“EVs”). By the end of the year, global EV sales had reached 3.24 million units, with electric vehicles accounting for 4.2% of the global market share. An increasing number of people are aware of the benefits of switching to EVs and are willing to deal with the costs of going green. However, for such a mass move to electric vehicles to be successful, the current number of EV charging stations will have to multiply by a large factor to support an…

ICE SUVs Cancelling Climate Benefits of EVs

With more people recognizing the benefits of going green, electric vehicle (“EV”) sales have been steadily increasing. Despite the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant economic crisis, 2020 was quite a great year for EVs, with customers around the globe buying a whopping 3.24 million battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles. However, internal-combustion-engine- (“ICE”) powered SUVs grew in popularity as well, effectively canceling out the progress the world had made as it pushes towards electrification. According to energy modelers Laura Cozzi and Apostolos Petropoulos, the ever-present demand for sports utility vehicles is making it much harder to reduce carbon emissions…

A Peek into the Technology Keeping EV Cabins Quiet

After experiencing years of noisy cabins courtesy of internal combustion engine vehicles, most drivers who go green are often surprised by how quiet the cabins of electric vehicles (“EVs”) are. EVs have eliminated not just carbon emissions but sound pollution as well. Conventional vehicles are powered by a combustion engine, which can be quite loud, but electric vehicles rely on a much quieter electric motor for propulsion. Unfortunately, without a loud combustion engine drowning everything out, ambient road noise is much more obvious inside the cabin. To eliminated this noise, EV makers have been using technology similar to what makes…
