Electric vehicle energy storage: are there big changes ahead?

Electric vehicle energy storage: are there big changes ahead?
Is it all about cars and extrapolation? Not anymore. The new IDTechEx report, 'Lithium-Ion Batteries for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030' avoids mindless extrapolation. It uses fundamentals to predict huge changes in the EV business and the way these vehicles store electricity. For example, rejection of poisons and the fact that herbicides becoming ineffective anyway heralds a huge new market for robot weeders. By Dr Peter Harrop, Industry Expert and Chariman at IDTechEx.

Driverless cars will be on the roads by 2021

Driverless cars will be on the roads by 2021
Technology is having a big impact across almost every sector, and the automotive industry is at the forefront of this. Newer vehicles come with tech add-ons like Bluetooth connectivity and sat-nav as standard and manufacturers are constantly developing new features to stay a step ahead of the competition. Driverless cars have been one of the key focus points in the industry for a number of years – but due to concerns over safety and delays in testing, they still haven’t become commonplace.

Spark partners with BP to prove pioneering UK EV technology

Spark partners with BP to prove pioneering UK EV technology
Spark EV Technology has announced a successful collaboration with BP that provided real-world trials which validated its advanced range prediction system for electric vehicles (EVs). Range and time anxiety are key factors holding back drivers and businesses from buying EVs. By delivering more accurate range predictions, based on actual driving style, topography and current atmospheric conditions, Spark’s proprietary technology overcomes these fears and increases driver trust that they will be able to get to their destination without needing to recharge.
