Copper Could Be the Choice for EV Motors
As the Canadian government has announced that it will stop producing pennies this fall, that copper has to go somewhere, right? According to the Copper Alliance, one excellent use of copper is for electric vehicles.
Specifically: the copper rotor induction motor.
This would be used instead of permanent magnet motors. One key reason is that those motors require rare earth metals. Those materials have had skyrocketing price increases during the past two years.
The Copper Alliance has put out a video showing what these companies are doing with copper.
