“Spotlight on Design” features video interviews and case studies, focusing on technology breakthroughs, hands-on testimonials, and the importance of fundamentals. Viewers are virtually taken to industry labs and research centers to learn how design engineers solve real-life problems.

These challenges include enhancing product performance, reducing cost, improving quality and safety, while decreasing environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance.

In the episode “Automotive Charging Infrastructure: Vehicle and Grid Integration” (21:00), engineers from NextEnergy and an infrastructure expert from General Motors explain how technologies are rapidly converging to power electric vehicles and support the overall electric grid. This episode highlights:

  • How the fast expansion of charging infrastructure is changing the way electric and hybrid-electric vehicles are gaining the confidence of consumers.
  • The strategic work being developed to expand the presence of charging stations where they are most effective.
  • The new models being developed to make the best possible use of batteries once they are no longer suitable for car use.
  • The importance of the secondary use of car batteries to power local micro-grids, enabling communities to be more energy independent.
  • The need to bring together engineers, grid experts and consumers to establish the best technology and implementation solutions to support a faster adoption of electric cars.

There isn't a single automaker in the world who believes it can earn profit from electric cars in the short term. The reason is the high cost of batteries that are needed to give the range drivers expect. In this episode of SAE Eye on Engineering, Editor-In-Chief Lindsay Brooke looks at the cost of vehicle electrification. SAE Eye on Engineering also airs Monday mornings on WJR 760 AM Detroit's Paul W. Smith Show. Access archived episodes of SAE Eye on Engineering.
