Electric Buses: Chinese Now Win Abroad

Electric Buses: Chinese Now Win Abroad

In the protected Chinese market all the over 400,000 pure electric buses in use are all made in China. The Europeans cannot complain. It is more than a coincidence that all the recent order for 900 pure electric buses in Paris went to French companies and we find a belief that 80% of bus business in Germany is a carve up between two German companies.

An affordable way to store clean energy

An affordable way to store clean energy

Renewable energy sources can fluctuate in the amount of power they are able to provide - which is why batteries are used to temporarily store the energy. The problem with lithium ion batteries is their short service life, while redox flow batteries have, to date, been cost-prohibitive.
