The challenges ahead for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), in the major auto markets is how to ensure the battery life and range of the new EVs doesn’t suddenly quickly reduce and decrease after a few short years.

A proposal for new regulations to ensure battery durability has been endorsed by the World Forum for Harmonisation of Vehicle Regulations hosted by the UNECE. A target quoted is that the battery doesn’t lose 20% of its performance within 3 years.


There are six parameters that are listed as affecting battery degradation and battery temperature is a key one. Ventac provides solutions to their  EV OEM customers to help protect the temperature of the battery (while it is being operated, charging or inactive). This issue is likely to increase dramatically in user awareness as the new BEVs are operated for a couple of years in different climates.

Each of Ventac’s solutions are supported by and manufactured in accordance with the exact needs of our customers, and our forward thinking helps our customers to find the perfect solution for their problem.
