New vehicle models from Hyundai and Toyota show promising signs of cleaning the air without giving off any harmful emissions. If this technology becomes the norm, then massive environmental change can finally kick into gear.
Hydrogen energy is versatile and can come from several sources. Due to this practicality, the world will likely go through an industry shift where hydrogen takes off.
With the ever-changing automotive industry, this year brings new political dynamics and global focuses. 2021 is going to be big for electric trucks of all kinds, but not due to any one reason in particular.
But nowhere has this change been as dramatic as the transport industry, with EV titans such as Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) and NIO Ltd. (NYSE:NIO) now commanding substantially higher valuations than their imposing ICE brethren, General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Ford Motors (NYSE:F).
Aluminum and steel are traditional material choices for battery enclosures. Yet, composites could provide an improved alternative, which will significantly improve the performance of the EVs.
One of the most recent developments in the industry is the shift to LFP chemistry, a non-toxic, non-hazardous solution that allows for longer battery cycle life, increased reliability, and enhanced safety. We knew we had to create our own LFP option.
The move away from petrol, diesel and hybrid cars can seem like a shifting target. Despite deadlines for the ban on such vehicles varying by country, we can be sure that global change is happening - and soon.
The COVID-19 pandemic, upon initial lockdowns and social distancing orders, showed that fast change is possible with the right tools. While pollution drops haven't lasted, a way forward is clear.
With sales of electric vehicles (EVs) already rising by 144 per cent in 2019, the popularity of EVs will only continue to increase ― but they haven't always been racing ahead.
Is the grid ready for electric cars? More electric cars and renewable electricity will cause more volatility in the supply and demand of electricity
On the road to an emission free economy, there are still several challenges to be overcome. One of the biggest challenges is building and operating an electricity distribution network for the increasing number of EV charging stations.
The demand for lithium batteries is expected to grow tenfold by 2030. However, the U.S. will produce only 14% of the world's lithium-ion batteries by 2021. These batteries are needed to make electric cars.
V2G or 'vehicle to grid' technology is not a new concept by any means, but it is nascent. Meaning, corporations are finally coming round to the idea of implementing it to more sensibly redistribute energy.
The Prime Minister has labelled his ten-point action plan, which includes investment in sustainable energy and bettered public transport, a 'green industrial revolution'.
Lithium-ion batteries are the only technology that can meet the performance requirements for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. However, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is rising far quicker than investments in the raw materials required to produce them.
China, is looking to become a dominant player in the rising global ev market. Chinese EV manufacturers are expected to start expanding overseas, while Beijing already controls a large part of the global EV supply chain, beginning with critical minerals processing.

Colocation is a growing trend within the energy industry. A recent study from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory suggested that installing floating solar arrays on US hydroelectric plant reservoirs could become an important new source of electricity. Recent studies suggest that installing floating solar arrays on US hydroelectric plant reservoirs could become an important new source of electricity.
