Increasing lifetime of NCA batteries: The Korean government funded three studies to analyze degradation patterns of Li-ion batteries composed of nickel, cobalt and aluminum. Heat makes the batteries degrade more quickly and with this research, scientists hope to counter the effects.

Components electrification: Allison Transmission presents a new solution for its hybrid drivetrains for buses that will supposedly increase fuel savings from 25 to 41 percent and more. The system comes with a DC-AC converter that makes it possible to use energy from the hybrid system to power accessory components such as electric air compressors.
