According to a recent report from the International Energy Agency (IEA), 2016 was a record year for electric vehicle (EV) sales. More than 750,000 EVs were sold worldwide last year, compared to 547,220 sold in 2015. The increase in EV production continues to favor technology learning and economies of scale. Battery costs kept declining between 2015 and 2016, and energy density continued to increase (EVI, 2017). This, combined with the improvements expected from battery chemistries that are currently being researched, gives encouraging signs on the possibility to meet the targets set by carmakers and the US DoE for the early 2020s (EVI, 2017). The world is changing in “positive” ways, pun intended.
ACTIA battery technology serves as a battery solution for electric bus, tram, truck, ground support equipment (GSE), military, marine, specialty vehicle or special purpose and other commercial and industrial electric vehicle (EV) applications. Modular plug-and-play designs, with all external connections on the front panel, make it easy to engineer the battery into a wide variety of EV applications and service the battery pack in the field. ACTIA battery packs feature diagnostics, battery state estimate and flexible system architecture, providing accurate state of charge and state of health data.
ACTIA Corporation is part of positive change mentioned above with their development of quality battery technologies for electric vehicle and transportation industries. As a group, ACTIA develops several modular battery systems throughout the world. The specific development of components and the flexible and controlled design of total battery systems, ACTIA adapts to all constraints (particularly size) and guarantee interoperability and communication between each module. We’re ready to produce positive results for your next electrification project. Contact an ACTIA Corporation representative to learn more about these opportunities.
