EVs and Fuel Cells - Articles, Stories & Interviews
olor changing cars, ones with energy storage bodywork, light-emitting glass that darkens at a touch? All have been demonstrated. Supercapacitor buses charging in 10 seconds?
Although sales growth in the U.S. has been slow, global sales of more energy efficient vehicles has taken off. This is leading to a great need for infrastructure investments that can support these types of vehicles, leading to many potential opportunities ...
The new technology that we are using is called nano-structured materials. This is not nano-particles, but nano-structures. The distinction is that we make the electrode materials into tiny sponges, with the pores on the order of 10 to 50 nanometers.
Customers seek cleaner transport options and lower total cost of ownership, both of which EVs can provide, while utilities seek to manage the charging times of these new electricity-consuming EVs and align that charging to the times of day that are the most economical.
Although the shift to electric was once considered far off and unlikely for many people, the rising concern for climate change and sustainability has helped sway public opinion towards the need for transportation based on alternative energy.
The introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone is intended to help improve the air quality in central London. Currently, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges London is facing.
The idea of the solar car is relatively new on the market and holds very real promise. If successful, the solar car will offer the ability to drive anywhere without burning any environmentally damaging fuels.

The award was given for the development of its CellCube FB500-2000, the largest single module flow-battery based energy storage system. The award was judged by an independent industry associated panel.
Solid oxide fuel cell technology can change virtually any form of waste treatment gas into electricity and hydrogen. This is a really nice economic benefit to help supplement the cost of these public waste services it is perhaps the least amount of benefit to society or obviously a company's bottom line as seen by FuelCell Energy's investors.
Bipolar fuel cell plates have traditionally been CNC-machined from graphite, an extremely expensive and highly permeable material that is not ideally suited to mass manufacturing applications. So saying, numerous materials have been assessed as alternatives, and because of the demand for competitively priced, relatively-easily to manufacture, durable materials, metals (especially stainless steel and titanium) have become increasingly popular.
