Collaboration to prolong battery life of electric buses and trucks | Electric Vehicles Research

life of electric vehicles still presents a financial challenge for the electrification of the transport sector. That is why the Fraunhofer institute for Transportation and Infrastructure IVI, expert in the field of Lithium-ion batteries , and real-time electric vehicle data specialist ViriCiti , have started a unique collaboration. This collaboration aims to prolong battery life and lower total cost of ownership of electric buses and trucks. Over the past months, they researched how battery life can be extended by altering specific aspects of operations. The outcome is a battery stress report that gives operation-specific advice on how to prolong the battery life. It is now available for ViriCiti 's international customers. For more information see the IDTechEx report on advanced li-ion and beyond li-ion batteries
