Wolfspeed and the Biophysical Economics Institute Announce Pioneering Study That Demonstrates the Superiority of Silicon Carbide for Energy Efficiency

Monday, October 25, 2021 - 1:01pm

When Silicon Carbide is used in the powertrain of an electric vehicle, it delivers a 13:1 energy savings vs. the incremental energy invested, as compared to traditional silicon chips.

Key Points: 
  • When Silicon Carbide is used in the powertrain of an electric vehicle, it delivers a 13:1 energy savings vs. the incremental energy invested, as compared to traditional silicon chips.
  • This analysis quantifies the energy saved over an equipments life cycle vs. the incremental energy used in its production with Silicon Carbide as an illustrative use case.
  • Key findings of the study include:
    Replacing silicon insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) with Silicon Carbide metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) produces substantial energy savings for electric vehicles.
  • The lifetime energy savings from employing Silicon Carbide MOSFETs are many times the incremental energy required to produce these devices.
