The modern alchemist’s quest for longer battery life is more challenging than ever. Good battery design for the e-mobility industry is akin to concocting a powerful potion, with the right balance of chemicals to handle different applications and challenging environments. The battery also needs to pack a punch to provide extra mileage on the road.

With this mid-life sedan, I had driven less than 5,000 miles and had experienced three different engine failures, each at varying distances from my home.
Edison International helps nonprofits bring the benefits of driving EVs to vulnerable communities.
From gardening, recycling and organic cooking, members of Happy50Plus — a social mission organization serving over 6,000 older Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders — are very environmentally conscious. And they want to learn more about the benefits of electric vehicles.
“We feel they will be very happy to learn how driving an EV will reduce the carbon footprint on Earth,” said Amanda Lee, CEO of Happy50Plus.
Utilities team up to ensure EV drivers can access fast charging along major highways
WALTHAM, Mass., May 13, 2021 /3BL Media/ – National Grid has just joined seven major utilities in the Electric Highway Coalition, which will enable more electric vehicle (EV) charging stations near highways across the United States.
