IIT Researchers have developed a new Charging Technology that costs Half the current one!
Researchers from a number of IITs have developed a novel charging technique for electric cars that is approximately half the price of current on-board charger technology and may assist in significantly lowering the cost of two- and four-wheeled electric vehicles. The team claims that laboratory-scale development has been already completed at the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), and that up-gradation & commercialization are currently underway.
According to the team, one of the country’s main electric vehicle makers has expressed interest in this new technique and is ready to build a completely commercial product that can be applied to existing EVs. IIT (BHU) Varanasi developed this technology in partnership with researchers from IIT Bhubaneswar and IIT Guwahati.
Rajeev Kumar Singh told PTI (Press Trust of India):
According to Singh, the cost of an onboard charger will be decreased by about 40-50 percent as a result of this technology when compared to the current charger.
The techno-commercial, economic, social, and environmental impacts of this technology, according to Pramod Kumar Jain (Director of IIT BHU), will all be beneficial.
