Use of Lithium Ion Batteries in Electric VehiclesAuthor(s): Tabitha Williams
Lithium ion batteries are a tried-and-true automotive technology, and their use in the future fleet of electric vehicles is unavoidable. Battery safety is essential for assuring confidence and widespread acceptance of electromobility in our society, in addition to battery economy and longevity. This opinion intends to shed light on the misuse of lithium ion battery rules and testing standards in electric vehicles. A key driving force for lowering carbon dioxide emissions is the replacement of traditional internal combustion engines (ICE) based on fossil fuels with "greener" and more powerful alternatives. In this regard, numerous governmental measures are being conducted all over the world to boost alternative fuel production and acceptance.
