Electric vehicles (EV) is the future not only of transport but of our planet. Can electric vehicles ever face a more serious form of gridlock however? These vehicles are plugged into a charging station at a low voltage. There are no emissions released from these vehicles.
But what if you have an electric vehicle that gets charged up from home electricity or by solar energy. What if you can use this charge to power your home and your garage. You will no longer need to fear the impact of fuel exporters. This means that electric vehicle drivers will be looking at long trips and camping. A home built electric vehicle will reduce the carbon footprint of the family and it will also lower electricity bills.
The future potential of electric vehicles is enormous. The obvious starting point for these vehicles is thecharging station. This is however only the first step in a potential journey which will see charge Banks and other industrial areas as well as homes and cities. The future scope of electric vehicles is therefore massive.
The technology for electric vehicles has been around since the 70’s in labs such as NASA. The present day technology will no doubt be far more advanced in a few years time. Some believe that we will soon see electric vehicles that can power themselves by harvesting energy from their environment. Such vehicles will require very little maintenance and can even run off alternative energy sources such as wind.
One problem faced by electric vehicles is that they do not fit into many parking spaces. As advances are made in technology, this problem will seem to be lessened with time. Other obstacles are also that electric vehicles use electricity which results in a pollution issue. There are solutions though, for both these issues. The charging stations for electric vehicles offer a way in which pollution can be reduced and also help to create jobs in regions where employment is little.
The future scope of electric vehicles is therefore enormous. We have already seen that technology for these vehicles is here and becoming far more advanced. We now know that such vehicles can provide us with great flexibility and we will soon see that potential.
It will also be interesting to see the impact of regulations which will come into force from the EU and US. These regulations are set to reduce petrol engine vehicles use. As electric vehicles grow in popularity, so will the need to reduce their use. It is clear that there will be a need to develop new zero emission technologies.
This study provides a detailed information on the future scope and the historical data analysis. It concludes by looking at the present prospects and gives a good guide as to how far technology has come. Future scope is estimated to continue growing rapidly as electric vehicles become more popular. More detailed information can be found in the full report which is available to download from the website. This provides an outline of the main points covered in the report.
The market research report provides a comprehensive overview of the current trends in the global market. It discusses the present day technology, the outlook for the future and the position of electric vehicles in this market segmentation. The analysis looked at four key areas. These are power source, battery technology, charging systems and the regional analysis.
Power source is one of the most important aspects and the global market segmentation is analysed with detailed information. The present day electric vehicles are using different sources such as the wind power, solar power and hydroelectric power. Most of these technologies have evolved in Africa. Some of the countries which have developed these technologies are Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Brazil. It should be noted that these nations all have very low fuel costs and this means that it is very affordable to install a charging system on the cars.
Batteries have been the primary concern all over the world. With the development in technology, lithium-ion batteries are replacing the ordinary alkaline batteries. This has posed a serious challenge to the manufacturers. The market research report offers details on the major key players of this industry and the various plans that are taken by them to overcome the challenges.
The third area in which the report outlines the future scenario is the charging systems. Most of the vehicles today have an electrical charge system. It is the electricity consumption by the user that determines the size of the battery pack. The global market segmentation gives details on the charging systems and the reasons why the manufacturers have decided to adopt these or not.
