UQM, 3D printing, QinetiQ, Teheran.
Popular electric drivetrain: This autumn, UQM will release its new drivetrain system PowerPhaseDT for electric utility vehicles (we reported). The industry is already showing interest, with Hybrid Kinetic Group, Wuzhoulong Motors and ITL from China, as well as ADOMANI from the U.S.all ready to place their orders.
3-D printed batteries: Researchers from Taiwan have successfully printed a magnesium battery in just minutes. Using a synthetic magnesium powder as anode material, they were even able to increase capacity to more than 600mAh/g. The same method could be used to increase the capacity of lithium batteries to 200 mAh/g.
Electric hub-drives for the military? The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is investing 2.7m dollars in British developer QinetiQ and its hub-drive technology. There is apparently much potential for the system when it comes to military vehicles. The money will be used to go from the concept to the test and prototype stage.
South Korea and Iran join forces: Representatives from both countries have opened a joint centre for the exchange of technical know-how in Teheran. The goal is to cooperate on a number of projects in the future, including in the field of electric mobility.
