Batteries for Hybridization and Electrification of Vehicles
Start Date: 11/1/2012Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 11/1/2012End Time: 5:30 PM
Event Description:
More than 30 percent of U.S. energy and 90 percent of oil consumption are used for road way transportation. Hybridization and electrification of vehicles on roadways are considered as major strategies for reducing dependence on oil and greenhouse gas and meeting the aggressive fuel economy standards.

Hybridization of conventional internal combustion engine vehicles with motors run on electricity from batteries can significantly improve fuel efficiency while electrocution allows switch of the fuel to electricity that could be domestic and cleaner. Batteries are critical components in hybridized and electrified vehicles to achieve their potential. The battery requirements are different in hybrid electric vehicle (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicle (BEV). Although significant progress has been made in the last decade especially for HEV batteries further improvement is cost, performance, durability, and safety of batteries are need particularly for PHEVs and BEVs.

In this presentation, we will discuss the requirements of batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles and state of the art of batteries for these vehicles and where the battery technology is going. We will focus on the lithium ion battery technology.
