Ricardo/CAPSE team on EV battery systems R&D

University of South Wales' Centre for Automotive and Power System Engineering (CAPSE) and Ricardo are to collaborate on electric vehicle battery systems research and development.

University of South Wales’ Centre for Automotive and Power System Engineering (CAPSE) and Ricardo are to collaborate on electric vehicle battery systems research and development.

CAPSE is based within the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science at the University of South Wales.

Recognised as an independent research, development, test and certification house in the UK, CAPSE is in the process of further expansion.

Ricardo works with some of the world’s leading automakers – from mainstream OEMs to EV specialists. The company has experience in the research and application of new and novel battery cell chemistry, as well as in the product development, engineering, and vehicle integration of production-ready battery packs and battery management systems.

The collaboration will provide Ricardo with access to the facilities and the support of the major investment in battery systems development by CAPSE, while also enabling the University to benefit from Ricardo’s knowledge and experience of the challenges of both research and production-intent programmes.

“I am pleased to be able to sign this MoU with the University of South Wales Centre for Automotive and Power System Engineering,” said Ricardo Automotive MD, Rory Fisher.

“Ricardo is already a global leader in both vehicle electrification and in the development and application of EV battery systems and technology. CAPSE is an important element of the UK’s electrified vehicle development capacity. We look forward to collaborating with CAPSE for the mutual benefit of the University and of Ricardo and its electric vehicle customers.”

“CAPSE’s mission is to support businesses and other organisations to develop the next generation of low carbon technologies and in doing so support the creation of new jobs and economic opportunities,” said CAPSE director, Jonathan Williams.

“As a leading independent UK based automotive and powertrain research and development organisation, Ricardo will bring valuable industrial experience of the development of electric vehicle systems.”
