Chinese OEMs' Electric Construction Machine Development

Chinese OEMs' Electric Construction Machine Development

China is the world's largest market for mobile construction machines. Ten of the top 50 construction equipment manufactures by sales revenue are Chinese companies. Chinese OEMs are developing electric construction machines supported by the electric powertrain component supply chain, which has been built up as a result of a broad government push for heavy-duty vehicle electrification (buses and trucks). This article looks at the ongoing electrification activity of Chinese construction machine manufacturers, with examples from compact to larger machines.

Electric Cars as Buffer Storage for Solar Power

Electric Cars as Buffer Storage for Solar Power

Infineon Technologies AG and Delta Electronics have developed a three-in-one-system that integrates solar, energy storage and charging of electric vehicles. Thanks to bidirectional inverters, the electric car is not only charged, but can also be used as a buffer storage or as household emergency backup power. More and more cars are equipped for this. Looking ahead, bidirectional energy flows coulf also be used to realize new vehicle-to-home and vehicle-to-grid solutions.

IDTechEx Assess the Next Commercial Phase of the Graphene Market

IDTechEx Assess the Next Commercial Phase of the Graphene Market

To date, the commercialization of graphene has been more of a "material push" rather than a "market pull"; a solution looking for a problem. In this first phase, there were numerous technical and commercial barriers to overcome, which in materials science does not happen overnight. IDTechEx believes that this is changing, with graphene entering the next stage, the growth phase, of its commercial journey.

Ford Trials Robot Charging Station to Support Disabled Drivers

Ford Trials Robot Charging Station to Support Disabled Drivers

For most of us, filling a car with fuel, or charging an electric vehicle is a simple task. But for disabled drivers, people with reduced mobility and older people it can be a significant challenge. Now, Ford has developed a prototype robot charging station that drivers operate via their smartphone from inside their electric vehicle. The technology could enable disabled drivers to stay in the car while charging, or they could leave the car while the robot does all the work.

The Car That Cleans the Air While Driving

The Car That Cleans the Air While Driving

The transport sector is a major polluter, producing about a quarter of the EU's total CO2 emissions a few years ago. Passenger cars are responsible for more than 60 percent of these emissions. The amount of CO2 produced by passenger cars is the main reason that researchers wanted to create a car that not only has low emissions in the production process, but also reduces CO2 emissions while driving.
