Batteries and parts for electric cars

Electric mobility - emission-free driving

The vision of a society driving electric vehicles has become a reality in many places. However, the anticipated increase in silent electric cars on the road requires a greater expansion of the charging station network. These stations feed the batteries of electric cars with electricity from regenerative energy sources to help reduce global emissions of carbon monoxide.

The car as a connector

A further development is also in the pipeline: the batteries of electric vehicles could serve as mobile power storage units in times of high electricity production from renewable energy sources, for example high wind speeds. Later, electric cars could feed the power back into the grid, acting as a key connector in the smart grid.

Components from 3M for e-mobility

3M is involved in the development of batteries for electric cars as well as the chemical and electronic components that improve energy storage in batteries. The portfolio ranges from products for cell manufacturing and battery assembly components to the integration of the battery system and conductive adhesives used in the construction of electric cars.

3M™ Battery Materials

Electric vehicles are fast becoming a reality around the world. Hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric automobiles all require advanced batteries with unique characteristics. At the same time, today’s mobile society has created a growing demand for handheld electronics – including smart phones, GPS, media players and digital recording devices – that are smaller and offer more power-hungry features. These trends have spurred the need for batteries that are more powerful, smaller, safer and longer-lasting – attributes that are the hallmark of 3M™ Battery Materials.
