Helping electric vehicles stay the course in extreme weather – insights from the i-HeCoBatt project

Interview — 01 Jun 2022

The i-HeCoBatt project has recently held an event – The Innovation and Networking Days on Battery Technologies & E-Vehicles – to showcase its achievements. There we interviewed the technical coordinator Mikel Arrinda, from CIDETEC, to gain first-hand insights about the project's results and what they mean for the future.

i-HeCoBatt is a fellow project of ASTRABAT. It has developed a cost-saving industrial battery heat exchanger to extend e-vehicle autonomy in extreme conditions. The project started in early 2019 and is now reaching its end. The Innovation and Networking days on Battery Technologies & E-Vehicles took place for the project team to share their results with green mobility stakeholders and those from the e-vehicle industry.

One key result mentioned by Mikel Arrinda is the heat exchanger with the FLEXcooler – the product patented by Miba – which has been integrated into the AUDI Battery Pack: “The market will respond very well to this product we have developed as part of the project, thanks to its highly efficient heat transmission capabilities, among other things”.
