EV Battery Chemistry Could Eliminate Cooling Systems


By Charles Murray – The US battery manufacturer A123 Systems Inc. has developed lithium-ion cells that it says could eliminate the need for costly cooling systems in electric cars.

“With this chemistry, it’s possible to reduce or completely eliminate the cooling system, depending on the vehicle,” Andy Chu, vice president of marketing and communications for A123 Systems, told us. “In a hybrid with a high-power battery, you might only reduce the size of the thermal management system. But with an electric vehicle, which doesn’t generate as much heat, it’s possible to eliminate the thermal management altogether.” more> http://tinyurl.com/cpb3s2t
