If batteries are the new oil, what are the old oil companies doing about it?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series Oil goes into many things. It goes to make plastics, for instance. It also gets used in some power plants. It is used in backup diesel generators. But the bulk of the revenues for the oil companies come from its use in automobiles. If, in […]

Are innovations possible in mature products such as electric motors?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series History tells us that the very first electric motor was made by Thomas Davenport of Vermont, who invented a battery-powered electric motorway back in 1834. That was a long time ago. With an almost 200 year history, it will be no surprise that electric motors can be considered […]

Did COVID-19 change anything fundamentally for the EV sector?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series A once-in-a lifetime-pandemic can also become a once-in-a-lifetime period when many things – even some of them fundamental – change. COVID-19 is still on, and it will perhaps be only by end of 2021 when we can breathe easy – literally. But there is little doubt that […]

Could solar power play a big role in the EVs ecosystem?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series Electric cars have no tailpipe emissions, but that does not mean your trip on the electric vehicle resulted in no lifecycle emissions. Making batteries (or electric vehicles) consume energy, which in turn result in CO2 emissions somewhere in the EV value chain. More important, the […]

Will the world face Lithium scarcity in future?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series Many e-mobility industry watchers would doubtless have come across new articles and TV shows centered around the theme of Lithium scarcity. Estimations show that by 2025, 75% of the world lithium consumption will be for batteries. If Lithium forms the core part of the dominant battery […]

Will material sciences have a dominant role to play in EV industry?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series Until recently, conventional vehicles were dominated mainly by mechanical engineering and petroleum engineering. The former ensured the vehicles were safe and robust. The latter ensured that the vehicles had fuel from any place imaginable, at a reasonable price. Since 2000, even the conventional cars were being […]

What are the viable pathways for electrification of heavy vehicles?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series A large car could weigh about 1.5 tons, the largest truck could weigh 25 tons (15-20 times as much as a large car), and could be required to travel much longer distances on a single trip compared to a car. If car owners think electric vehicles […]

Will ultrafast EV battery charging become commonplace by 2030?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series In its early days, charging an electric vehicle could take 8-10 hours. Surely no one would wait that long for a vehicle to be charged, unless of course it is charged while the owner is doing something else – sleeping, for instance, or at work. […]

Can innovative sales and financing models accelerate EV adoption significantly?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series It was said that the stone age did not end because of the lack of stones. It can be similarly argued that the reign of oil as the fuel for transport could end much before scarcity of oil hits the world, or even before electric […]

Is it possible for small battery startups to beat big giants?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series The battery is a fairly old industry, over 100 years old. (The very first lead-acid battery was invented in 1859 by a French physicist, Gaston Planté). Even the relative newcomer, Li-ion battery has been around for over 30 years, as part of a slew of […]

The Million Mile Battery – is it a big deal?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series For about a year now, there has been buzz around the concept of million mile battery. Now, I think it was Tesla that started it all, though there are some variants of the million mile battery we keep hearing about in the e-mobility innovation circles. […]

Can entirely new battery chemistries overtake Li-ion chemistry?

  This is a part of the EV Innovation Intelligence series Li-ion is the dominant standard for batteries for the e-mobility industry. And most industry experts think that Li-ion chemistry has established a strong foundation that will last at least for a couple of decades. Or will it? While some battery chemistries or battery types such […]
