Electric Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

This article primarily investigates the hybrid and pure electric powertrains and electrics being used or considered for UAVs and the new missions made possible by electrification. UAVs survey military threats but also the melting ice caps and natural disasters. They can carry ordnance but also drop aid and locate disaster survivors and lost climbers and trekkers. Little wonder then that new electric UAVs are announced frequently these days.

IDTechEx: unmanned electric aircraft take agriculture by storm

The German Agricultural Society Field Days 2014, held recently showcased many new innovations in crop production for the German and other European producers present. This year's event had special emphasis on drones, notably quadcopters and other multicopters for spotting disease, underwatering and many other conditions plus some fixed wing versions.

The death of coal and oil boost EVs

The death of coal and oil boost EVs

When representative of OPEC, Sheik Yamani famously said, "The stone age did not end for lack of stones", it is now clear that the coming decade will see a collapse of coal power and not because coal supplies are running out. The writing is on the wall for oil as well - it will help electric vehicles because it will no longer be true that they use "dirty" electricity in the main.

Tightening air pollution laws boost e-ships

In two parts of the world — along the U.S. and Canadian coasts, and in the Baltic and North seas as well as the English Channel — the SOx limits are ultra-strict. As of 2010, the sulfur content of marine fuel in these "emission control areas" must be 1 percent or lower. As of 2015, the sulfur content must be 0.1 percent or lower.

Electric Vehicles Adopt Range Extenders without Pistons

Electric Vehicles Adopt Range Extenders without Pistons

Range extenders are the engine part of series hybrids for land, water and air whether plug-in or not. Plug-in cars alone promise to be a $122 billion market in 2024 which means a very large marker for range extenders - probably over $60 billion in 2024 - that are smaller, lighter weight, have less noise and vibration, can be mounted any way up, are preferably multi-fuel and more effiecient and clean and have lower up-front cost and cost-over-life.
