Flywheel hybrids offer new efficiency potential
08-Sep-2014 13:11 GMT
For hybrids to reach future emissions and fuel consumption targets, the balance of power between the ICE and electric motor will change radically, ushering in energy harvesting flywheel opportunities, Torotrak Director Jon Hilton believes. Read full story
WSU team's transportable hydrogen fueling station wins design contest
02-Sep-2014 13:08 GMT
The WSU team found an edge over the competing designs by employing liquid hydrogen (LH2) storage to maximize station capacity and reduce capital and operating costs. Delivering hydrogen in liquid form reduces the energy used for distribution, and 80-90% of small-merchant hydrogen is delivered via cryogenic liquid tanker truck. Read full story

Production of satellite with first all-electric propulsion system advances
15-Jul-2014 17:29 GMT
Electric propulsion has been limited so far to small movements of the satellites once it is in its geostationary orbit. The Boeing 702SP innovation is its use of electric propulsion to raise the satellite from its launch-vehicle drop-off point to geostationary orbit. Read full story
