Creating a Reliable National Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles 

Electric vehicle (EV) owners may love their cars, but they don’t always like the state of the infrastructure needed to keep those sustainable vehicles charged up and on the road. In the San Francisco Bay area alone—a region where one would assume there are a high number of EVs and an equally ample number of public chargers—just over 70% of the city’s 657 public fast chargers were in working order, according to Autoweek.

Form Energy raises $450 million funding round

One of the largest funding rounds raised this year by a single tech company came from a sector that won’t surprise longtime Massachusetts tech observers: batteries. Form Energy, a maker of iron-air batteries that can store clean energy for days without incurring in high costs, said on Tuesday it raised $450 million in a late-stage investment. Sarah Bray, a spokesperson for Form Energy, said in an email that the company does not need to rely on public markets for capital at this time.

A global view on EV charging

As a global organization, Avnet has a privileged insight into how the EV charging infrastructure is developing across the world. Governments and private companies are generating growing momentum behind the move to fully battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). However, not all regions are developing infrastructure at the same rate.

The dynamics of refueling internal combustion engine vehicles are fundamentally different from supplying electricity for BEVs. At minimum, public charge points will be installed alongside fuel pumps. However, the obvious difference is the refuel v recharge timeframe. This creates demand for more charge points at more than just service stations.

6 Million Units of Electric Cars Likely To Be Shipped In 2022

2022 is expected to see around 6 million units of electric four-wheelers being shipped globally, in contrast to the 4 million unit shipments in 2021, as per a new report by Gartner. It forecasts that electric cars (battery electric and plug-in hybrid) will represent 95 percent of total EV shipments in 2022 and the remainder will be split between buses, vans and heavy trucks.

Market Update: Electric Vehicles 

The time when electric vehicles (EVs) were seen as pet projects that would someday come of age and go mainstream are long gone. In its place is a mad rush to develop EVs across numerous different vehicle categories—from small passenger cars to huge tractor trailers, and all points in between. Automakers across the board are involved in the push, which is driving up expectations about just how many EVs will be on the road and operating within the next few years.

Future of Electric Vehicles & New EV Technology 

There are an estimated 1.4 billion cars on the road globally, and about 5.1 million of them are electric vehicles (EV). Even though only one-third of one percent of all consumer vehicles use EV technology, some of the most innovative companies in the global economy are EV manufacturers. Does the future promise fully electric semi-trucks, cars, and motorcycles? The next generation of EVs may revolutionize the world of transportation.
