New development in EV heating systems

Proposed resistance heating (ohmic) for EVs promises up to 30% energy savings, which we all would like. See https://chargedevs.com/newswire/aimplas-heating-system-for-evs-reduces-energy-consumption-by-30/ for details.

  1. The article is part snake oil. Joule effect is ohmic or resistive heating, and is the least efficient heating. The only possible improvement is being smart about what and where you heat, like heated seats. They also mentioned insulation... low tech, nothing new. The Peltier effect can provide real efficiency gain, especially heating. But the article down plays that.
