Electric vehicle energy storage: are there big changes ahead?

Electric vehicle energy storage: are there big changes ahead?
Is it all about cars and extrapolation? Not anymore. The new IDTechEx report, 'Lithium-Ion Batteries for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030' avoids mindless extrapolation. It uses fundamentals to predict huge changes in the EV business and the way these vehicles store electricity. For example, rejection of poisons and the fact that herbicides becoming ineffective anyway heralds a huge new market for robot weeders. By Dr Peter Harrop, Industry Expert and Chariman at IDTechEx.

Automotive industry to be a big growth opportunity for conductive ink

Automotive industry to be a big growth opportunity for conductive ink
The automotive industry has emerged as a significant market opportunity for suppliers of conductive pastes and similar materials. It has the potential to one day rival in significance the irreplaceable photovoltaic market. Almost every major paste supplier with a global profile is re-organising its team and its product portfolio to capture this rising trend.

Piezoelectrics key to IoT and power from roads?

Piezoelectrics key to IoT and power from roads?
California and Europe are pumping millions into development of electricity-generating roads using piezoelectrics. Piezos will also be useful in self-powered IoT nodes because no one will change or even charge millions of batteries for those nodes let alone the envisaged billions. Without self-powered nodes, the IoT will be nothing more than a footnote in history.

The future of EVs on show in Silicon Valley

The future of EVs on show in Silicon Valley
Many new electric vehicles were on display at the IDTechEx Show on 14th-15th November in Santa Clara, California. However, that was the tip of the iceberg. The event had a hidden message - the future enabling technologies for electric vehicles (EVs), from buses to cars to mining vehicles.

Are EVs poisonous and do they need to be?

Are EVs poisonous and do they need to be?
Diesel vehicles land, water and air, are on the way out because they emit poisons - antimony, arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, cyanide, dioxin, lead, nickel, manganese, phosphorus, selenium and sulfur compounds and carcinogenic submicron particulates, organics and more. The brew has a lot in common with the poisons inhaled from smoking tobacco. However, the new electronics and electrics in and on vehicles appearing over the next ten years will contain most those poisons and add more.

The good, the bad and the ugly: EVs and off grid forecasting

The good, the bad and the ugly: EVs and off grid forecasting
When the Mayor of London plans a ban on parking in all new apartment blocks, it is best not to assume, that car sales will go on up forever. Factor in trials of autonomous taxi-buses from Switzerland to New Zealand and the rise in internet shopping using electric delivery vans. They are all going to hit car sales, including taxis. Bill Gates’ Belmont new city in Arizona is being based on more space-efficient, safer, less expensive alternatives to cars. Cleaner too - even electric cars emit particulates from their tires.

The future aspirations for long distance EVs

The future aspirations for long distance EVs
Dr Peter Harrop, Chairman at IDTechEx discusses the three aspirations for long distance EVs. All the publicity currently goes to the race to make regular and premium cars have longer range. This is because most people want only one car so it must be capable of the long distance trip however rare. That must be achieved despite the inadequacy of charging points in number, speed and compatibilty of interface and payment means.

Looking beyond autonomy to energy independent vehicles

Looking beyond autonomy to energy independent vehicles
  The Bye Aerospace pure electric plane currently on sale is not yet energy independent but it does generate electricity from the propeller being driven backwards by wind when descending and when parked. It has structural solar wings and it saves the $100,000 in aviation fuel used by a regular small aircraft when training a pilot.

Are EIVs a reality or a wild-eyed dream?

Are EIVs a reality or a wild-eyed dream?
  The industry may have to rethink the Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure warns IDTechEx, as multiple energy harvesting leads to Energy Independent electric Vehicles (EIV) range being thousands of kilometres.

Google and Toyota keynote Energy Independent Vehicle event

Google and Toyota keynote Energy Independent Vehicle event
When giants such as Google, Toyota and Nissan gather to consider something new it is time to pay attention. This 'next big thing' is energy independent electric vehicles (EIVs) by land water and air. Their impact on society and industry will, in due course, be seismic. The event is the world’s first that is dedicated entirely to 'Energy Independent Electric Vehicles'. It is at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands on 27th-28th September.

Report analyses the 'last mile problem'

Report analyses the 'last mile problem'
The latest IDTechEx Research report, Last Mile Electric Vehicles 2018-2028, concerns goods and people reaching final destination such as down the pathway past the guard dog or riding from the train station. Currently costing up to 55% of shipment costs, today's expensive methods tend to be dangerous, polluting or slow. Solving this 'last mile problem' is key to Amazon's objective of grabbing Wal-Mart's business and other battles of the titans.

Report forecasts EV technology between 2017-2027

Report forecasts EV technology between 2017-2027
The biggest change in cars for one hundred years is now starting. It is driven by totally new requirements and capabilities. They will cause huge new businesses to appear but some giants currently making cars and their parts will spectacularly go bankrupt. Cities will ban private cars but encourage cars as autonomous taxis and rental vehicles. Already 65% of cars in China are bought by businesses.  Electric car technology and forecasts 2017-2027 by Dr Peter Harrop.

Pollution levels are only enhancing the case for EVs

Pollution levels are only enhancing the case for EVs
Understanding around vehicle pollution levels has increased dramatically in recent years, and each new discovery has offered another reason to hasten the adoption of electric powertrains in land vehicles, marine craft and aircraft. Although ozone, carbon monoxide and other emissions have been subject to study, there is escalating concern about the acid gas, particulate and carbon dioxide emissions in particular.

Report shows the huge potential of EIVs

The new report from IDTechEx Research, Energy Independent Electric Vehicles Land, Water, Air 2017-2037, reveals how energy independent Electric Vehicles (EIV) such as solar racers were a curiosity five years ago, too weak to lead to anything generally useful. Then a solar boat and plane went round the world and a solar plane is now being prepared that will rise from earth to 24,386km (80,000ft) on sunshine alone.
