Governor Brown issued an executive order in March that directs state government to support the rapid commercialization of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in the state.
The DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) has selected 19 new projects that will receive a total of $43 million to develop new energy storage technologies. The projects are supported through two new ARPA-E programs – Advanced Management and Protection of Energy Storage Devices (AMPED) and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) – and will focus… Read more »
Envia Systems crushed the record for energy density of an automotive rechargeable Li-ion battery at 400Wh/kg. Now all the small start-up has to do is partner with everybody, become the industry standard, and change the world. Most of us know the public library as a place to get some free Wi-Fi, meet up with people for… Read more »
The DOE has announced $30 million in new funding for 13 national lab and university-led research projects to develop new technologies to help secure the supply of critical clean tech materials, including cobalt, neodymium and platinum. Research funded in this announcement is intended to advance the understanding of how rare-earth elements and platinum group elements… Read more »
The DOE has announced a new $42.3-million funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0002553) to support manufacturing innovations for energy technologies to drive reductions in carbon emissions. The latest FOA is focused on three topic areas: Manufacturing process innovation, including drying process improvements, advanced tooling solutions and sustainable chemistry practices; Advanced materials manufacturing, including the development of aluminum-cerium alloys… Read more »
The DOE has awarded $60 million in funding to 24 R&D projects aimed at reducing CO2 emissions from passenger cars and light- and heavy-duty trucks. The projects, funded through the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Vehicles Technology Office (VTO), address the two largest contributors to transportation-sector emissions. Passenger cars and light-duty… Read more »
The lithium-ion battery has proven to be an excellent fuel tank for EVs, but there remains much room for improvement. We’re still far from what’s theoretically achievable in terms of Li-ion capacity, safety, cost and charge times. As battery manufacturers continue their quest for improved chemistry and material combinations, they rely on applied researchers like… Read more »
President Biden’s next priority is a massive infrastructure bill, and e-mobility is very much a part of the plan to upgrade and modernize the country’s transportation system. The administration is going big. “The American Jobs Plan will invest in America in a way we have not invested since we built the interstate highways and won… Read more »
At first glance, the Department of Energy’s latest stats on public fast chargers indicate that we’re in the midst of a thrilling standards war, with the two competitors running neck-and-neck. There are two competing DC fast charging standards in the US (aside from Tesla’s proprietary Supercharger): CHArge de MOve (CHAdeMO), developed by the Japanese and… Read more »
