Clean growth

The global challenge of climate change creates a need for research and innovation to drive forward transport solutions which improve lives, support sustainable economic growth, and help us transition to zero-emission travel. Coventry University's research into Clean Growth addresses these challenges by delivering practical and relevant solutions.

Lithium-Ion Batteries

Effective battery thermal management systems are critical for the performance and safety of electric vehicles. Battery thermal management systems must both remove heat during battery charge and discharge and maintain the temperature of the cells above a minimum threshold for safe operation in cold environments.
