Powering the future of zero-emission vehicles
02 June 2023
Vehicle manufacturers are investing heavily in electric vehicle (EV) R&D to transform the way we drive, and battery development is at the heart of this process.
Comparatively lightweight and long lasting with good performance, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries have proven invaluable in EV development, and improvements in design, materials, construction, and manufacturing processes mean their safety has dramatically improved.
Of course, because of the energy requirements to power EVs, high-voltage/high-capacity battery packs are needed, therefore presenting an electric shock and energy hazard.
It is therefore essential that people working with and using high-voltage systems are aware of the potential dangers and protective measures.
As the global demand for innovation in EVs increases, the need for qualified testing of lithium-ion batteries, and education about their use and care, will also continue to grow.
