The Paris “ratchet mechanism” is designed to steadily increase ambition over time, ensuring that the world reaches net zero emissions in the second half of the century and keeps temperature rise “well below 2 degrees C”. Probably current climate policies will not achieve the aims of the agreement, but that doesn’t render these targets impossible.
Nearly 60% of carbon pollution comes from power and transportation, and power is already decarbonizing fast. The transportation sector thus represents a prime target for cutting carbon pollution, with light-duty (passenger) vehicles accounting for 60% of those emissions and medium-and heavy-duty trucks accounting for a further 23%. These emissions can be significantly reduced by transitioning from the internal combustion engine to electric vehicles (EVs). All major automakers recognize that the shift from fossil-fueled cars to EV is inevitable, and are investing accordingly.
The global electric car stock surpassed 3 million vehicles by Nov 2017. 1.2 million new electric car sales in 2017, expect 1.8 million in 2018 global sales.
There are three essential technologies to the electric vehicle development. Battery is the critical!
There are mainly three types of electric vehicle batteries, Lead-Acid, Nickel Metal Hydride and Lithium-ion. In consideration of cost, capacity and safety, the Lithium-ion battery is preferable, and get rapid development.
The safety and reliability of electric vehicles applications depends on the quality of its batteries. Testing for battery safety and reliability is also a key concern for the renewable energy industry, which utilizes a wide selection of technologies for solar energy storage and other uses.
We offer total solution equipment for battery testing:
- Vibration Test Systems
- High Shock Test Systems
- Temperature/Humidity Test Chambers
- Data Acquisition Systems
Regarding the traditional vehicle components, there are three testing standards: IEC 60068-2-6 (sine), IEC 6008-2-64 (random) , ISO 16750-3 (electric components).
Nowadays, regarding the electric vehicle battery, there are three international testing standards. However, for different manufacturers, they may have their own company standard, such as General Motor standard GMW 16390.
All our testing equipment complies with the required testing standards.
