Marine News – Batteries: Ready to Scale Up

In an interview Wrightsman commented that maritime battery applications, indeed, have reached an off-the-shelf status, but he still characterized the U.S. market as “pilot scale”, at least compared to European and Asian markets. Wrightsman said that the battery supply chain presents challenges. Lithium costs have increased, and future demand will add pricing pressures. Raw materials are available today, but he expects supply risks by 2030. “If you don’t change anything,” he noted, with particular reference to the U.S. regulatory process, “we run risks of shortages. We need domestic production.”

Learn how Lithium-ion Battery manufacturers can prevent battery fires.

Batteries pose chemical and physical hazards. Batteries can fail for many
reasons including short-circuiting, overcharging, or overheating. For Li-ion batteries, these failures can lead to dangerous propagations resulting in highly dangerous thermal runaway. To prevent battery fires, we must aim to understand how to prevent thermal
runaways. Quality control at every stage of battery manufacturing is an effective way to eliminate most defects and it is the responsibility of battery manufacturers to make the existing technology as safe as possible.

Indiana Electric Vehicle Products Commission Annual Report

The Indiana Electric Vehicle Products Commission’s first report on Indiana’s EV products landscape puts our Hoosier state at the front of the pack for engaging industry.

The Automotive Industry initiated the beginning of a technical revolution in Indiana by cultivating research and pioneering products over the course of many decades. Although the local
automotive industry boom has grown immensely recently, Hoosier leaders have been developing the culture of innovation tediously with substantial attention to detail and rising trends.
