Norway commissions zero-emission high speed ferry

Norway commissions zero-emission high speed ferry

Hyon AS has been awarded grants under the PILOT-E scheme for the development and realization of two maritime projects; a high-speed ferry and a short-sea freighter. The ambitions of both projects are to realize zero-emission propulsion via fuel cells using cost-efficient hydrogen produced from electrolysis based on renewable energy.

NASA 20kV flying microgrid

NASA 20kV flying microgrid

Innovators at NASA have developed a variable-frequency, alternating current power system to enable turbo-electric and hybrid electric propulsion. The technology uses double-fed electric machines and a high-voltage, variable-frequency power system to significantly decrease (by 85%) the weight of an aircraft's power electronics for turbo-electric propulsion, while still providing high specific power and variable thrust.

Electric Buses: 10 Seconds at Depot, No Charging On Journey?

Cities are increasingly crowded: real estate is in short supply. Servicing buses needs to be as infrequent as possible and that means having the simplest powertrain, which is the pure electric vehicle.
