Electric Vehicle Charge Point and Battery Technology Evolution

Dallas, TX — (SBWIRE ) — 08/27/2012 — The case for increasing the rollout of EVs is strong. According to the International Energy Agency, transportation totaled one fifth of primary energy use in 2009. By 2050, fuel consumption is forecast to double.

Features and benefits

— Explore the current position of EV technology globally.

— Examine the growth of the EV market since the turn of the century.

— Analyze major charging infrastructure projects.

— Understand the power demands and constraints impacting the widespread adoption of EVs.

— Assess the technology driving EVs and the sector’s additional needs.


China’s approach to developing its EV infrastructure is prescient, as developing the EV market within major cities will be crucial for the development of the mass market over the long term.

Fuel cell EVs offer significant potential. Fuel cells work by converting hydrogen and oxygen into electricity. The electromechanical reaction of the two elements leaves only water as a waste product and is up to three times more efficient than that of a gasoline engine, although not as efficient as a battery.

Despite the rapidly increasing dominance of li-ion polymer batteries, the technology is far from faultless, with some commentators calling for the return of lead-acid batteries instead. In spite of their weight and low energy storage capacity, lead-acid models remain cheaper to produce than all other battery types.
