Efficient Electric Vehicles with Hybridized Energy Storage Systems
Title: Efficient Electric Vehicles with Hybridized Energy Storage Systems
Coordinators at INESCC: João Pedro Trovão (University of Sherbrooke, Canada)
Dates start/end: 10-2015 / 10-2020
Entity: Canada Research Chairs Program
Dr. João Trovão, Canada Research Chair in Efficient Electric Vehicles with Hybridized Energy Storage Systems, is developing energy systems and highly efficient propulsion systems that will make electric vehicles more efficient and give them a greater driving range than what is currently available. Trovão’s research focuses on range as well as battery aging and recharging time. He hopes to improve performance by using hybridized energy storage systems and reducing energy loss. His innovations will be made widely available to major industry leaders through technology transfer. Trovão’s research will contribute to the development of a new generation of more efficient electric vehicles. Better suited to the needs of consumers, these vehicles will offer a more attractive alternative to traditional vehicles and support the larger goal of sustainable development.
