Is it necessary to completely reinvent the current lithium-ion battery? Tesla claims it to be too large, too inefficient and on top of that also too expensive. As a solution Tesla has come up with a new type of battery technology. They claim it to be sustainable.
But at the same time, we must have realistic expectations. If many believe that the transformation to e-mobility and a sustainable society can be finished by adding small amounts of resources, countries will not be able to mobilize the resources necessary. NASA would never launch a space craft without the power to leave the atmosphere and particle physicists would never build an accelerator that could not accelerate particles to a high enough speed, but innovation optimists r
The global economy is the world’s largest catering service. It brings food to the majority of the world’s population day in and day out. In the years to come the fuel of the global economy, oil, is likely to get scarce and there is no new transport system ready to replace present ones. Governments have failed to take the measures necessary to develop new technologies and systems to maturity and competitiveness so they can rapidly be implemented to replace petrol and diesel. A
– Combined promotion and staggered leasing from November 16th, 2020 The federal government of Germany has set a national goal of promoting the sale of new and young used electric vehicles with the help of an environmental bonus. This can make a notable contribution in reducing air pollution while at the same time increase the demand for environmentally friendly electric vehicles. The measures will support the rapid spread of electrically powered vehicles on the market. A new
Electric vehicles are much more than just a means of transportation. They represent a large storage opportunity for the electrical grid using the new technology called ‘vehicle to grid’. At DTU Center for Electric Power and Energy, we study how this technology can be used to support the balancing of the electrical system (namely frequency control) and increase the amount of renewable energy connected to the grid. Participating into the frequency control can provide the user w
