EV Battery Technology: Future Innovations

Hosted by TV motoring personality and presenter, Brendan Coogan, this month’s episode investigates the extraordinary claims about future of EV battery technology and performance. It even busts some myths about speed charging, electrode lifespans and driving range.  We open up an actual EV battery and show how they’re currently made and what can be done to improve them. All experts agree that future EV batteries need to be made of materials that are more cost-efficient and sustainable while always looking to improve the safety and integrity of the components.

Together with industry experts such as David Greenwood, Director of Industrial Engagement at The University of Warwick, Dr Ivana Hasa, Assistant professor at WMG, and Toby Groom, EV Logistics Program Lead, DHL Commercial Operations, we dig deep into the science behind new electric vehicle battery technology.

From smart EV battery extenders to futuristic quantum glass batteries - the possibilities seem amazing.  Companies are striving to reduce size, weight, cost, and the use of controversial substances such as cobalt and lithium.
