Lamborghini's New Concept Electric Car is Energy Storage On Wheels

Dom Galeon for Futurism: At Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) EmTech conference last week, Italian luxury car manufacturer Lamborghini unveiled a new concept electric supercar — and they weren’t kidding when they called it “the future of sports cars.”

The Lamborghini Terzo Millennio (which is Italian for the “third millennium”) certainly does look like it belongs to a future era. The product of a unique collaboration between MIT and Lamborghini, the Terzo Millennio doesn’t just lookthe part of a futuristic car, it’s  packed with next generation technology.

One of the highlights is its energy storage capacity. According to Road Show, the Terzo Millennio uses supercapacitors instead of regular batteries. Coupled with high storage capabilities, supercapacitors are also capable of receiving and delivering a charge faster than standard batteries. Plus, it carries more charge cycles than most batteries, which can supply power to the supercar’s four electric motors — one for each wheel.

Its energy storage capabilities don’t end there, though. The car’s carbon fiber body allows the entire vehicle to work as one big energy storage medium — almost like a battery on wheels.  Full Article:

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
