E-Mobility Motors: Two Technologies Rare Earth-Free

  • The demand for neodymium is expected to grow by 6% annually over the period to 2030, which leads to a significant gap in supply by the end of the decade
  • Are there enough resources to meet the growing demand and to enable the high uptake of EVs in the coming decades?
  • The  ReFreeDrive project funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme has pushed the boundary of two motor technologies which do not use any critical raw material:
    • Induction with copper rotor (both die-cast and fabricated versions) and synchronous reluctance (either assisted with ferrite magnets or without).
  • Advanced design and multiple innovations introduced: optimised electrical steels, special copper alloys, new manufacturing methods, hairpin winding, innovative cooling
