Moody’s: Automakers fully engaged on BEVs, but transition will pressure returns; need to invest in multiple technologies

By mmillikin Auto manufacturers are fully engaged in the global movement toward battery electric vehicles (BEVs) as part of their efforts to comply with emission requirements, but the transition will pressure their returns, according to a new report from Moody’s Investors Service. Moody’s expects BEVs to represent approximately 7%-8% of global new vehicle sales by…

Making fuel cells for a fraction of the cost

Fuel cells have the potential to be a clean and efficient way to run cars, computers, and power stations, but the cost of producing them is limiting their use. That’s because a key component of the most common fuel cells is a catalyst made from the precious metal platinum. Read Full Article Here For more…

UCR, Stanford team develops general approach for inexpensive, efficient catalysts for PEM fuel cells

By mmillikin Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, with colleagues at Stanford have developed a general approach for the production of inexpensive, efficient and durable catalysts for PEM fuel cells: 1D porous nitrogen-doped graphitic carbon fibers embedded with active oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalyst components (M/MOx, i.e., metal or metal oxide nanoparticles). In a…

Zero emission ship carrot and stick

As discussed in the IDTechEx report Electric Boats and Ships, there are several ways a boat or ship can be zero emission. It can be a fuel cell hybrid if the fuel is available where needed or pure electric where suitable charging is deployed. It can be an energy independent electric vehicle never needing fuel…
