Will EVs start to take up SiC and drive prices to parity with silicon?

Will EVs start to take up SiC and drive prices to parity with silicon?
Wide band-gap devices have yet to break into the EV market in a meaningful way, but the stage is set for them to become the technology of choice as they drop in cost and demonstrate the performance and reliability needed. By Anup Bhalla, VP Engineering at UnitedSiC.

Zero emission combustion engine truck takes to the roads this year

Zero emission combustion engine truck takes to the roads this year
Later in the year, a truck with a combustion engine powered entirely from zero carbon hydrogen fuel will take to the roads. Developed by hydrogen fuel pioneer ULEMCo, the converted VOLVO FH16 vehicle will use what is believed to be the first ‘zero emission’ combustion engine anywhere in the world. The hydrogen combustion truck, with Mega Low Emissions (MLE), is designed to provide a demonstration of how hydrogen fuel can be deployed to decarbonise heavy goods vehicles efficiently and cost effectively.

Electric transit buses exceed range expectations

Electric transit buses exceed range expectations
  Canadian electric bus manufacturer, GreenPower Motor has announced that its EV350 40ft all-electrictransit bus has outperformed its original range expectations. The zero-emission vehicle recently traveled 205 miles with 50% SOC (state of charge) remaining battery-pack power after the trip.

Could solid-state batteries power long range EVs?

Could solid-state batteries power long range EVs?
Imec and its partner in EnergyVille have fabricated a type of solid-state Li-ion battery achieving an energy density of 200Wh/liter at a charging speed of 0.5C (2 hours). This battery is a milestone on the roadmap to surpass wet Li-ion battery performance and reach 1,000Wh/L at 2C by 2024. With this clear performance engineering path, imec’s battery technology is ready to become a contender to power tomorrow’s fast charging, long haul 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.

Supporting energy storage with EV batteries for offices

Supporting energy storage with EV batteries for offices
  Hitachi, Mitsubishi Motors and ENGIE have demonstrated a pioneering project to explore the potential for Electric Vehicles to act as a means of energy storage for an office building. For this demonstration, the consortium linked the first vehicle to everything (V2X) charger to ENGIE's office building in Zaandam.

JCB digs up the first ever electric digger

JCB digs up the first ever electric digger
The first ever electric digger has been developed by JCB in response to customer demands for a zero emissions machine which can work indoors, underground and close to people in urban areas. The 1.9 tonne mini excavator can be charged by simply plugging it into a standard 230V domestic electricity supply.

HIL technology moves to forefront of EV testing

Major automotive manufacturers like Subaru are using NI hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) technology to simulate actual road conditions for electric vehicle testing, eliminating environmental factors to reduce test time and costs. Traditionally, engineers have conducted vehicle tests using finished cars on test courses or public roads to check the vehicle’s performance and safety response.

Hydrogen dual fuel road sweeper introduced to Aberdeen City Council

Hydrogen dual fuel road sweeper introduced to Aberdeen City Council
  ULEMCo has collaborated with Aberdeen City Council (ACC) to deliver the world’s first hydrogen dual fuel road sweeper. The vehicles will use hydrogen fuel for around a third of the energy used to drive and operate the vehicles, making valuable reductions in CO2 emissions.
