Round Table: Designing EV Batteries

Addressing the special challenges of hot and humid tropical climate

A joint initiative of Centre for Science and Environment and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India

The success of India’s electric vehicle programme will depend on technology development for improving batteries and battery systems, especially with relation to their safety performance and their behaviour in hot and humid climates. CSE is collaborating with the Department of Science and Technology to develop a White Paper on the EV battery with special reference to tropical climate.

This Round Table discussion is a critical component of this collaboration, and has been designed to bring together battery scientists and technologists to assess and identify the technology pathways that are more appropriate for Indian conditions. The goal is simple: to design and develop a battery that will work well in India.
