A recent study points to the underestimated potential of e-fuels. Renewable energy could be used to extract synthetic fuels. Does this make the overall balance even better than with purely electric vehicles?

Synthetic fuels are illustrated by a car fueled by a green charging station on which Green Energy stands

While researchers in Germany are primarily working on the use of the magnesium air battery for mobile use, ie as energy storage for Electric cars to get fit, scientists around the world deal with other metal-air solutions. However, they all have three things in common: they have a considerably (more…)

With high-performance chargers, the industry wants to make electric vehicles acceptable. Many customers eventually renounce the purchase because they have range anxieties. Now creates a relatively dense network of charging stations.

From 2020, a flexible fast charging station developed by Volkswagen will go into mass production. The fast charging system can simultaneously charge up to 4 e-cars on the power bank principle and cache power.

You can see a model of the fast charging system with 2 electric cars.

The new fast charging system from Volkswagen is flexible and uses outdated, but still usable batteries from electric cars .

Technically, the fast charging station is based on the battery pack of the modular electrification kit (more…)

Lighter, cheaper and more efficient – this is how researchers at the Fraunhofer ICT describe an electric motor to which they have missed a new cooling concept. The modified heat conduction makes conductive metal superfluous.

This sectional view of the electric motor shows the principle: The core of the motor is a stator consisting of twelve individual teeth, which are wound upright with a flat wire. This creates space for a cooling system.Photo: Fraunhofer ICT
