0 Project M: An Experiment in Complete Car Design Integration
Shell announced that it is co-engineering an ultra-efficient, ultra-affordable concept city car called Project M (for “Mobility”). The goal is to show how efficient a car can be made when working together with vehicle and energy experts through each stage of its design, including the powertrain and lubricants. The resulting concept car is expected to
0 Cloud-Based Home EV Charging Is Here
Siemens just unveiled the first WiFi-enabled, cloud-based electric vehicle (EV) charging station, called the VersiCharge SmartGrid. It allows EV owners to manage and schedule charging remotely, through an application. It can also interact with utilities, who can then better manage the time and level of charging across the grid to operate more efficiently and avoid
0 Harvard’s Bionic Leaf Turns Sunlight into Liquid Fuel
The original purpose of designing an artificial leaf was to harness light to break water into hydrogen and oxygen, thereby mimicking a real leaf’s photosynthesis. The bionic leaf is one step up from this process, in that it incorporates a type of bacterium that has been engineered to convert carbon dioxide plus the above hydrogen
