In addition to the electric car…

New York City Plans to Install 40,000 EV Charging Stations by 2030

1 month ago, VinFast had a very spectacular launch in New York with the event of listing VFS on the US stock exchange. Along with the development of the green energy market in New York, VinFast will certainly have many opportunities here. Especially when New York City Plans to Install 40,000 EV Charging Stations by 2030 and create more advantages for the EV market to develop.  New York State has pledged up to $250 million through 2025 to build EV charging stations throughout the state through its EVolve NY program. In fact, New York is second only to California in the scope of its financial commitment to EV charging station infrastructure. Financial incentives and grants are available for businesses who want to explore EV charging station installation in New York.   There are three levels of EV charging stations: Level-one chargers are mainly for home use and can charge from a residential 120-volt outlet. Grants and incentives for New York businesses focus mainly on level-two and level-three EV chargers. Level-two chargers use 240 volts and can give an EV 30 to 50 miles of charge an hour. Level-three superchargers, or DC fast chargers, can fully charge a vehicle in less than…

The reason why VinES confidently competes with Chinese batteries

Although it is making the Korean and Japanese battery industries ‘smoke’, Chinese batteries do not worry VinES because according to Ms. Pham Thuy Linh – General Director of VinES, they still have certain competitive advantages.  In the past 10 years, thanks to the support of the Government and the exploding green car trend in the country (the growth rate of electric cars in China in a decade has been faster than many decades of growth in the Japanese and European markets). Europe or North America) Chinese battery companies have grown strongly in both output and the speed of battery technology development. Even for car manufacturers such as Tesla, Volkswagen, Hyundai, BMW… equipping batteries from China on car models sold in this market also helps them have a certain competitive advantage.  And CATL is the battery company that has this advantage and has grown rapidly, surpassing LG Chem, Panasonic, SK On, and Samsung SDI to lead the battery supply chain for 6 consecutive years. The explosion of the domestic electric vehicle market also caused another name, BYD, to rise to the 3rd position in global battery market share, even surpassing LG Chem, which ranked 2nd in the field of electric vehicle…

NASA technology helps fully charge electric vehicles in 5 minutes

Experimental technology NASA uses to cool equipment in space could cut electric vehicle (EV) charging times to less than five minutes. This news comes in the context that electric vehicle sales are on the rise and have reached their highest level ever.  The experimental technology was initially developed by scientists to support “nuclear fission power systems for missions to the Moon, Mars, and other more distant planets.” Specifically, this technology provides fuel for “vapor compression heat pumps to operate. From there, EV engines help maintain habitats on the Moon and Mars, while controlling heat and supporting life inside spacecraft.”  Thanks to the “subcooled flow boiling” technique, NASA technology can increase the current through improved heat transfer through the charging cable. This will significantly reduce the time needed to fully charge a vehicle.  NASA explains that an electric current with a minimum strength of 1,400 amps can fully charge an electric car within 5 minutes. Meanwhile, the fastest chargers used in science and industry today only produce a maximum of 520 amps, and most chargers on the market only support less than 150 amps.  A research team from Purdue University, led by mechanical engineering professor Issam Mudawar, said their experiment successfully…

Charging an electric car in the rain is not dangerous

“Can the car charge when it rains?” is a question that many people still ask about the electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle segment. Companies say that charging when it rains is safe for people and vehicles, because electric vehicles and charging stations are thoroughly tested for safety under harsh conditions before they can be sold on the market.  Water and electricity are a dangerous combination that can cause fatal accidents. Therefore, the vehicle’s battery and charging system are designed to be as watertight as possible, and integrate many additional technologies to protect against discharge, short circuit, etc. Each step of the charging process is carefully calculated to To protect the driver, electronic components must comply with strict rules set by safety organizations around the world, including the Ingress Protection (IP) standard, which indicates the level of dust/water resistance set. by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).  The IP standard represents the level of dust and water resistance of electronic components, and is widely used around the world. According to IEC 60529 standards, dust resistance is expressed through the first number, 1-6, water resistance is the next number from 1-8, the higher the number means the more resistant to dust/water factors. big. …

You will be surprised to know what will happen to old VinFast batteries 

You will be surprised to know what will happen to old VinFast batteries  Have you ever wondered: What will happen to the old batteries of VinFast cars?  Not so many people are well awared of the fact that, we can’t just simply throw even a tiny battery in the trash. So where do those moon-pound batteries go? Going to the landfills? At the end of their lives, these packs don’t end up in landfills.  Are EV batteries recyclable? Instead of throwing used batteries in the trash, VinFast, with the help of VinES, sends them to professional companies for recycling – Li-Cycle.   In 2023, VinES Energy Solutions (“VinES”) and Li-Cycle Holdings Corp. (“Li-Cycle”), have signed a definitive agreement for a long-term recycling relationship.

You can set your vehicle to charge automatically during off-peak times only, so you pay less for electricity.  Tip 3: Charge to 80% Modern lithium-ion batteries don’t…

How Your Battery Can Help Generate Power During a Power Outage?

In the United States, everyone will experience at least two hours of a power outage during the year. While this is a considerably low number, a power outage can come in various ways: from standard maintenance to natural emergencies like storms and blizzards. It can be said that electricity is an essential part of our lives. It is the lifeblood for many of the activities that we do daily, and now, even our vehicles.  However, your electric vehicle is essentially a large battery on wheels. Thus, one surprising advantage of your EV battery is that you can have the ability to use it to power your home in case of emergencies. Even though your electric vehicle can be charged using your home’s power. The opposite can be done to power your home by using the energy left from your car’s battery. Or, simply, a generator as a backup power source.  EVs now have battery packs ranging from 40 to 65 kilowatt-hours. That means a fully charged battery from your electric vehicle can power your home for two to three days. Maybe even four days if your battery capacities reach beyond 65 kilowatt-hours.  Even though this is a relatively new concept,…
