Researchers have taken a crucial stride toward making next-generation rechargeable batteries, which will substitute present energy storage technology if successful.
Faster-charging and more sustainable batteries with a life up to three times greater than lithium ion are being built with technology developed at The University of Queensland.
In a major step toward achieving sustainable shipping, the first of three LNG battery hybrid PCTCs commissioned by United European Car Carriers (UECC) was launched in an official ceremony Monday 12 April at the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai.
Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology have produced a structural battery that performs ten times better than all previous versions. It contains carbon fibre that serves simultaneously as an electrode, conductor, and load-bearing material. Their latest research breakthrough paves the way for essentially ’massless’ energy storage in vehicles and other technology.
With almost three times as many battery-powered cars registered in the first three months of 2020 than in the same period of 2019, the introduction of green number plates for electric vehicles in January 2021, couldn’t have been more timely. The number plates make electric vehicles more easily identifiable as zero emission vehicles, helping local authorities design policies to incentivise people to drive electric. The scheme is part of a wider government initiative to make UK roads greener and aligns with the announcement of 2030 as the new fast-tracked milestone for the end of sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans.
As Yara Marine Technologies expands into new green technology for the maritime industry, their accelerator program for startups lets them tap into the frontiers of green marine technologies.
Following the news that Hyundai has confirmed it is in early talks with Apple to establish a partnership to develop and produce electric vehicles and related batteries, Calum MacRae, Automotive Analyst at GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, offers his view.
Cavotec has joined CharIN, (Charging Interface Initiative), a network of companies developing global standards for charging battery powered vehicles. By bringing 40 years of experience in high-power electrification and connection technologies, Cavotec will help the network shape the future of e-vehicle charging focusing on applications that require high power, high speed charging.
Following the news that India's state-owned Energy Efficiency Services Limited has announced to invest in Thailand-based e-mobility player SWAG EV
Electric vehicles, which are deemed to be decisive for sustainable transportation, are currently powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that majorly rely on heavy metals like cobalt and nickel.
