Understanding Regenerative Braking in EVs Hybrids Regenerative brakes are part of the structure that qualifies vehicles with an electric motor as energy-saving by maintaining and utilizing the energy released when braking. Hybrid and other electric vehicles (EVs) use electricity instead of gasoline as a fuel source, but another essential energy-saving consideration must be the regenerative braking component. Regenerative braking retains the energy usually dissipated as heat when the brakes are applied. As the vehicle slows, all the momentum used to go forward disperses into the brake pads in the form of kinetic heat energy in friction-based braking systems. These traditional braking systems generate friction as they decelerate using brake rotors and pads, which come together whenever the brake pedal is applied. Regenerative braking systems use the EV's motor to convert the kinetic energy lost during deceleration back into potential energy contained in the vehicle's battery ... read more
