“Mobility of the Future” study examines how developments in technology, fuel, infrastructure, policy, and consumer preference will drive transportation changes.
Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. (EDI), a global leader in advanced high-efficiency zero emissions hybrid and electric vehicle drivetrain solutions announced today that it has delivered the first of six Plug-in-Hybrid Electric Armored vehicles to Sectran Security.
Today the Ascend Energy team in the Sacramento area in collaboration with fuel cell manufacturer Atrex Energy released the results of their joint project to demonstrate the benefits of using an oxygen-based ceramic fuel cell as part of a hybrid electric vehicle to save money, reduce fuel use, and eliminate air pollution.
Construction vehicles could become more efficient and environmentally-friendly, thanks to new technology developed by WMG at the University of Warwick.
Battery electric vehicles provide better energy efficiency, less pollution and greenhouse gas emissions over vehicles powered by fossil fuels. Plug-in hybrid vehicles are in a mid-position - they are capable of extended driving in electric mode with electricity generated from the grid or the use of fossil fuel in an inner combustion engine.
The dream of a cleaner, greener transportation future burns brightly in the promise of hydrogen-fueled, internal combustion engine automobiles. Modern-day versions of such vehicles run hot, finish clean and produce only pure water as a combustion byproduct.
BMW Group and Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) today launched a new electromobility research programme, involving the all-electric BMW i3 and plug-in hybrid sports car BMW i8 that runs on electricity and petrol.
Electric buses are an eco-friendly alternative to diesel. With several project partners, Fraunhofer researchers have developed a concept to swiftly recharge buses while they operate routes. System testing in Dresden has been underway since November last year.
Trina Solar Limited ("Trina Solar" or the "Company"), a global leader in photovoltaic ("PV") modules, solutions, and services, is pleased to announce that it provided Osaka Sangyo University ("OSU") with its newly developed Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) cells and modules for OSU's Solar Car, the "OSU-Model-S".
Plug-in hybrids have low fuel consumption, but require more costly parts than cars with a regular combustion engine. During development, the optimal cost balance must be calculated, which has been extremely time consuming to date. Now researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a new method that dramatically reduces the time needed for these calculations.
