$10 billion solar opportunity on mild hybrid cars

$10 billion solar opportunity on mild hybrid cars

Most car manufacturers are finding it very hard to combat loss of share to Tesla and other pure electric vehicles. Many of those are even struggling to avoid penalties for emissions. FCA has already had to pay Tesla $2 billion for emissions credits.

Electric Traction Motors: Emerging Technologies

Electric Traction Motors: Emerging Technologies

The electric motor is the unifying component across electric vehicles. The type, number and power output of electric motors varies between manufacturers and across markets, with trends shifting quickly. Several new technologies and improvements are being made to increase efficiency and power density, improve the thermal management or reduce the reliance on rare-earth materials. Technologies such as novel magnet design, axial flux motors, magnet free motors and aluminium windings are all introduced within this article.

The Killer Application for Microgrids

The Killer Application for Microgrids

The defining feature of a microgrid is that it can work independently of a national grid. It is not that it does do that. Many are connected to national grids, providing redundancy and balancing. That defining feature is that it can be "islanded" as they call it.

Material Handling Robotics and Forklifts

The Europeans call it Intralogistics and the rest of the world calls it Material Handling. The terms mean material transport in warehouses, docks, airports, farms, factories and the like. The most popular manually operated form is the forklift and the most common robotic form is usually quite primitive and called automatic guided vehicles.
