New Generation of Supercapacitors to Electrify Green Transportation

New Generation of Supercapacitors to Electrify Green Transportation

Scientists have created a new generation of low-cost, high-energy supercapacitors to power electric vehicles. Researchers have produced a cheaper, more sustainable and energy-dense electrode material for supercapacitors which could pave the way for wider market penetration of this high-power, quick charging electric vehicle technology.

Less Car Charging Beats Fast Charging Any Day

Would you prefer a car with 600 miles/nearly 1000km range or half that? Fast charging is all the talk now but doubling then trebling the range is seismic.

Short Term Growth Prospects for Renewable Fuels

Short Term Growth Prospects for Renewable Fuels

Limits on the amount of bioethanol and biodiesel that can be blended with conventional fossil fuels mean growth in the consumption of certain biofuels has slowed considerably over the past 5 years. However, with CO2 targets becoming increasingly stringent, and some sectors being difficult to electrify, alternative fuels are likely to still be needed over the coming years.

Automotive Interior Differentiation is the New Battleground

Automotive Interior Differentiation is the New Battleground

Automotive OEMs are increasingly using interior features to distinguish between models and from other brands. There are, therefore, extensive opportunities for printed/flexible electronics to add additional functionality to the cockpit while facilitating efficient manufacturing.

Robotic Microplankton Sniffer Dog

Robotic Microplankton Sniffer Dog

The microscopic, free-floating algae called phytoplankton — and the tiny zooplankton that eat them — are notoriously difficult to count. Researchers need to know how a warming climate will affect them both. A new kind of smart, lightweight autonomous underwater vehicle can help.

Acoustic Ecology and Safety

Acoustic Ecology and Safety

One of the problems that arose in the use of electric vehicles was the noiselessness of their movement. The lack of external sound in hybrid and electric vehicles, especially at low speeds, has a negative impact on the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and people with limited mobility. People simply do not hear the approaching electric car, and this becomes unsafe for all road users.
