Energy, India's longest-range electric scooter brand and one of the top three
EV start-ups, collaborated with the Indian Institute of Technology-Indore (IIT
Indore) to develop a novel composite material with enhanced thermal stability
and flame redundant properties for its flagship product, Simple One, and future
Energy is a true Make In India initiative and the first start-up to work on
such a cutting-edge technological system for thermal management. Simple Energy
believes that this system will improve the safety, dependability, and lifespan
of the battery modules in all its products.
the first to adopt such innovation in India, Suhas Rajkumar, Founder, and CEO,
Simple Energy said, “Currently, users are aware of the severity of the battery
issues. Manufacturers need to develop new technology for the users’ safety.
While the global EV market started looking for an option to tackle thermal
runaway issues; Simple Energy is one step ahead on this. Our research team
collaborated with IIT-Indore for developing a best optimal solution to address
collaboration with IIT Indore will boost Simple Energy's R&D and aid in the
integration of lightweight vehicles with high-performance (composite) materials
to reduce range anxiety and accelerate consumer demand in line with government
on this fruitful association, Dr. I A Palani, Dean R&D, IIT Indore noted
"IIT Indore has collaborated with Simple Energy for this advanced
technology application in thermal management systems. This tie-up will ensure
to take the R&D to greater heights as it involves scholars from both teams.
By completing such projects, Simple Energy will undoubtedly lead R&D and
technology in the EV industry in India. We look forward to more such projects
in the future with team Simple.”
Simple Energy and IIT Indore worked together
on this thermal management system for a year long. Dr. Santosh Kumar Sahu, HOD
- Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Indore, who was an important part
of the project, expressed his delight at the project's successful completion.
