Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Charging Solutions for Electric Autonomous Vehicles

Electrification and autonomy will ultimately dominate the automotive space. Future autonomous electric vehicles (EVs), especially shared autonomous fleets such as robotaxis will have no driver to perform the charging tasks. In that case, how will future autonomous EVs be refuelled? This premium article will provide an overview of charging solutions for autonomous EVs including conductive robotic charging and wireless charging. Alternative solutions such as battery swapping will also be discussed.

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

In 2020 vessel owners have had to deal with an 'emissions control world' for the first time. Unlike most other mobility sectors, which predominantly tend to switch partly or completely to a traction battery in order to meet emissions targets, a mixture of solutions have a role to play for boats and ships.

Tiny Micro Supercapacitor, Ideal for Wearable Devices

Tiny Micro Supercapacitor, Ideal for Wearable Devices

A tiny microsupercapacitor that is as small as the width of a person's fingerprint and can be integrated directly with an electronic chip has been developed. This has attracted major attention as a novel technology to lead the era of Internet of Things since it can be driven independently when applied to individual electronic components.

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

Distributed Generation: Off-Grid Zero- Emission kW-MW

This article concerns production of electricity with zero emissions that is off-grid or capable of being off-grid when needed. That usually means a system that has energy storage and increasingly smart versions, those that manage supply and demand often for multiple loads and/or inputs. However, we also give some coverage to simple-single purpose versions such as a shipping container with a solar panel on it that creates fresh water by self-generated electricity powering desalination.

In 2020, only modest numbers of zero-emission microgrids were being delivered. On current evidence, we find some certainties. Zero-emission, off grid (including fringe-of-grid) is a trend for many reasons already presented but it is, as yet, a slow trend for reasons discussed within the article.
