Electric vehicles

An electric vehicle (EV), also referred to as an electric drive vehicle, uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. An electric vehicle may be powered through a collector system by electricity from off-vehicle sources, or may be self-contained with a battery or generator to convert fuel to electricity. EVs include road and rail vehicles, surface and underwater vessels, electric aircraft and electric spacecraft.

  • Campus Lindholmen - a Development Centre for Optimised Waste Collection

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    At Campus Lindholmen, low-speed electric vehicles combine with specially designed trucks to collect sorted waste and distribute goods to a variety of recipients. The result is an 80–90 percent reduction in heavy-vehicle traffic. Campus Lindholmen in Gothenburg covers an area of less than 10 hectares (one-tenth of a square kilometre) but is a vital hub for developing sustainable waste collection and goods distribution and reducing heavy-vehicle traffic.

  • Innovation Outlook: Smart charging for electric vehicles

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The advent of electric vehicles (EVs) promises to be
    a game-changer for the world’s shift to sustainable
    energy and particularly to renewable power generation.
    This is true for several reasons. Most notably, along
    with transforming the transport sector, EVs present a
    viable opportunity to introduce much higher shares of
    renewables into the overall power generation mix.
    EV charging can create significant additional electricity
    demand. This can be met practically and cost-effectively

  • Integration of 1-D MnO2 Nanowire and 2-D Graphene to 3-D Composites and their Applications in High-Energy High-Power and Low-Cost Aqueous Supercapacitors

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Background: Currently MnO2 is commonly coated onto current collectors to form very thin films with a thickness of ten to one-thousand nanometers in order to minimize the limitation of poor conductivity. Therefore the relative amount of MnO2 on current collector is always low and does not provide sufficient energy and power density.

  • Transformation enabled nitride magnets absent rare earths (TEN Mare)

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Case Western Reserve University under an ARPA-E funded proof-of-concept project is developing a component-level technology innovation that will eliminate rare earth elements in permanent magnet materials for wind turbine generators and electric vehicle motors. Specifically Dr. David Matthiesen and his team is fabricating bulk powders fully transformed to α’’-Fe16N2 an ordered martensite. These highly magnetic iron-nitride alloys can be used in the magnets that power electric motors found in EVs renewable power generators such as wind turbines and vehicle accessory motors.
