Nuclear Fusion Technology Being Developed For Electric Vehicles

Now, a group of British engineers are proposing to use nuclear fusion technology to keep batteries cool while they charge. They are focusing on how to get the heat out of the battery packs so that the flow of electricity into them can continue at a faster rate. It could be game changing technology for EVs of the future.

To accomplish this goal, engineers are using a high-performance cooling system designed for nuclear fusion. The proposed technology for EVs is based on the cooling system for nuclear reactors, which reach temperatures equal to five times the center of the sun.

The solution is to drill a precise geometry of holes in metal plates. That will allow heat to keep flowing and be lost evenly through the plate.
