Applications of Rechargeable Lithium - Ion Battery in Electric Vehicles: A Review
Zachary Bosire Omariba | Stephen Mageto Gichana
Abstract: With the evolution of rechargeable lithium - ion batteries (LIBs) and their subsequent application in electric vehicles (EVs), there is a shift by individuals, organizations, and governments in the way they plan, develop, and enact their strategies on transportation technology. This is because modern EVs powered by rechargeable LIBs not only presents new opportunities, but also a set of issues and challenges, that need to be resolved. The rising emissions from fossil fuel powered vehicles, has accelerated demand for newer transportation solutions that are environment friendly. This has made many countries to take proactive measures by enact laws and come up with policies in relation to the adoption of EVs that are powered by rechargeable batteries, as a way of responding to climate change. It is for this reason that this study presents the different issues and challenges surrounding the implementation of battery powered EVs. The main concentration area will be the different proactive measures that organizations and governments can embrace as a way to respond to climatic change, thus creating an emission free environment. Also this paper will look at the drivers and barriers related to the adoption of EVs powered by LIBs to help decision and policy makers to make informed choices in regard to climatic change.
