Centre for Battery Engineering and Electric Vehicles


Upcoming Events

International Expo & Conference on Electric Vehicles, Future Mobility and Components, 28-30 August 2020 Chennai Trade Center, India


Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the future of India’s road transport. They will enable us to get rid of our city pollution and
reduce dependence on imported oil. CBEEV is an R&D Centre based out of IIT Madras and IIT Madras Research Park
which weaves cutting edge research with strategic commercialization towards creating a holistic ecosystem
of Battery Management Solutions across the country.

Our comprehensive R&D in each of the subsystems of EVs focuses on Li-ion batteries, battery management solutions,
permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) and its controllers, and on board and off board chargers.
With a large team of young R&D professionals, and 150 employees and researchers with extensive and varied
experience, CBEEV boasts a wide range of innovations that are high-performing, sustainable, and
scalable solutions across both commercial and domestic sectors.
