Requirements for batteries used in electric mobility applications
Future mobility needs novel concepts that strike a balance between individual mobility needs, sustainable use of resources, and protection of the environment (Fig. 31.1). Also, owing to climate change and the limitation of fossil fuels, more efforts are required to decrease CO2 emissions. In this regard, the entire automotive industry has already achieved considerable success by optimizing engine technology and introducing automatic engine start/stop systems and brake energy recuperation. These efforts in conventional drive technology are ongoing.
