Europe: Transport and energy groups call for intelligent EV charging infrastructure

Company News India - Sun, 09/08/2019 - 06:09

In recently issued joint statement, transport and energy associations in Europe have sought support from European institutions for a rapid deployment of intelligent charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs).

The European transport and energy associations that have issued the joint statement include the Association of European Automobile Manufacturers, the European Electricity Industry Association, and the umbrella organisation of European NGOs from the sustainable transport sector.

In their request to European institutions to support a speedy rollout of intelligent EV charging infrastructure, the transport and energy groups said that it is imperative to ensure that EV drivers have the requisite infrastructure for easily charging their vehicles at home, at the workplace, and along the motorways.

According to the involved associations, certain important legislation should be reformed appropriately by the policymakers. These legislations include the upcoming EU Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Act (AFID) and the EU Buildings Directive (EPBD).

The demand for intelligent EV charging infrastructure put forth by the European transport and energy associations calls for a widespread expansion of the strategically located infrastructure for intelligent EV charging across the European Union. The move, as per the involved associations, will enable EV drivers to “charge without seriously affecting or overloading European electricity grids,” and will thus offer “clear benefits for customers, the electricity system, the automotive industry and society as a whole.”

Faraday Institution will award £55M to UK-based consortium for battery research

Company News India - Sun, 09/08/2019 - 06:03

The UK’s Faraday Institution has announced that it will grant an amount of up to £55 million for battery research, so that battery enhancements for transport and grid storage can be accelerated in the country.

According to the announcement, the £55 million grant will be awarded by Faraday Institution to a UK-based consortium to undertake battery research. The consortium will be led by the University of Oxford, and will comprise five other university partners as well as six industry partners.

The consortium will undertake research on battery chemistries, systems, and production techniques. The key focus of the consortium will be on potential improvements in the production of electrodes in order to support the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries.

In reference to the £55 million grant for battery research, Faraday Institution CEO Neil Morris said that the dual objective behind the grant portfolio is to improve present-generation lithium-ion batteries and to shore up the commercialisation of next-generation batteries.

Highlighting the fact that the £55 million grant announced by the Faraday Institution will back scientists and innovators to collaborate on battery-research projects, Business Minister Nadhim Zahawi said that the collaborative projects will help deliver “a brighter, cleaner future” on UK roads. Zahawi also added: “We are committed to ensuring that the UK is at the forefront of developing the battery technologies needed to achieve our aim for all cars and vans to be effectively zero emission by 2040.”
