Abstract

As next-generation automobiles, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) have been developed because of their high-energy efficiency and low CO2 emission. These technologies are extremely important for the next-generation energy society. This is because electric energy has greater efficiency than heat and kinetic energy of internal combustion engines and because of the diversification of primary energy sources and collaboration with the smart community as mobile energy storage. However, to present an alternative to gasoline automobiles, they must overcome major problems such as mileage, price, and infrastructure. In this chapter, an overview of BEV and FCEV is given, and a technology road map of secondary battery and fuel cell systems for the next-generation automotive is introduced.
