The Future for Automotive Regenerative Braking and Waste Heat Recovery Systems.

The factors driving the growth of the market for the automotive energy recovery systems are an increase in fuel efficiency provided by these systems, improvement in vehicle performance, and lesser CO2 emissions by the vehicle.

 

Regenerative Braking systems are devices that reduce the vehicle speed by converting a part of the kinetic energy into electrical energy. The energy captured through regenerative braking can be stored in any of the three following devices: an electrochemical battery, a flywheel or a regenerative fuel cell. Regenerative braking brings into use, the principal of an electric motor acting as a generator. It re-uses kinetic energy by using its electric motor to regenerate electricity.
