NREL Helps Cool the Power Electronics in Electric Vehicles (Fact Sheet)

    Research output: NRELFact Sheet


    Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are developing and demonstrating innovative heat-transfer technologies for cooling power electronics devices in hybrid and electric vehicles. In collaboration with 3M and Wolverine Tube, Inc., NREL is using surface enhancements to dissipate heat more effectively, permitting a reduction in the size of power electronic systems andpotentially reducing the overall costs of electric vehicles.
