XG Sciences receives DOE grant for silicon-graphene anode technology

Michigan-based XG Sciences has received a DOE Round 2 small business award for $150,000, which it will use to support its efforts to develop low-cost manufacturing of a silicon-graphene composite anode. One goal for the new anode type is to reduce the formation of the solid electrolyte interface (SEI). The SEI layer is both a… Read more »

DOE to issue $22.3-million funding opportunity for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles

The DOE has announced its intent to issue a $22.3-million funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001534) for vehicle technologies. The FOA will include several areas of interest, including medium- and heavy-duty plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). The objective of the PEV area of interest is to research, develop, and demonstrate medium- and heavy-duty (classes 3-7) PEVs, including vehicles that… Read more »

Tesla joins Charging Interface Initiative – what does it mean?

Tesla has joined the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN), an organization formed a few months ago by several automakers and EVSE manufacturers with the mission of promoting technical standards for the Combined Charging System (CCS), and working to increase its capabilities. Observers of the charging scene differ as to the significance of the move. In the… Read more »

Does Manhattan really have more Tesla charging stations than gas stations?

Here’s a fun fact courtesy of the tabloid New York Post (and corroborated by more – shall we say – widely-quoted news outlets, including the Times and WNYC): Manhattan now has more public EV charging stations than gas stations.
