Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a strategy to capture, store and eventually recycle carbon from vehicles to prevent the pollutant from finding its way from a car tailpipe into the atmosphere. Georgia Tech researchers envision a zero emission car, and a transportation system completely free of fossil fuels.
Hybrid electric vehicles that run on both conventional gasoline and stored electricity can be no more than a stop gap until more sustainable technology is developed, according to researchers in France.
California based manufacturer Miles Electric Vehicles completed its first international distribution agreement in early January with AllGreenVehicles of the Netherlands, which will bring the MILES low speed, all electric vehicle line to the three Benelux countries of Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
The odometer of a low emission hybrid electric test vehicle today reached 100,000 miles as the car circled a track in the UK using the power of an advanced CSIRO battery system.
Google.org today rolled out five core initiatives that will be the focus of its philanthropic efforts over the next five to ten years.
A new high performance magnet alloy developed by Ames Lab will help the development of electric cars, which are growing in popularity.
Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory's Transportation Technology R&D Center (TTRDC) will present 11 papers during the Electric Vehicle Symposium-23 that will be held in Anaheim, Calif., from Dec. 2-5.
Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery technology shows significant promise for hybrid and electric vehicle applications in terms of its comparatively high power and energy density, and ability to retain charge for extended periods. However, commercial challenges remain in terms of both cost and weight.
