Fleet News features Altelium and battery health

8th July 2021

Dr. Alana Zülke, lead research author and member of the battery research team at Altelium features in Fleet News. She asks a question of vital importance to fleet managers: “What happens if you are a very conservative driver, who prefers to daily top up your car battery, so it stands at an 80% overnight, always ensuring that you always have maximum energy reserve ready to use?”

She notes how information about battery degradation will inform risk calculations for EV battery-related insurance and warranty products. This has further applications in helping to consider the value of second-hand cars and second-life batteries.  This can be extremely important to all those buying and selling electric vehicles or battery components because without data about its health and history, a battery may have a zero value rating.
