Samsung-SDI-BatteryTwo times higher density? Samsung researchers have developed a high crystalline graphene coating for silicon cathodes, said to have twice the energy density than regular lithium ion batteries. This is made possible since the protective graphene layer decreases the volume change through a sliding process between adjacent graphene layers. The technology is expected to be market ready within the next two or three years.

TOSA, CARB, Bolzano, Massachusetts.

Flash charging: Imagine a robotic arm reaching out from a bus’ roof for 15 seconds of ultra fast charging and then moving on with up to 133 passengers. That becomes reality with Geneva’s TOSA project. EPFL scientists developed a mathematical model to minimise infrastructure and costs of the TOSA e-bus system even further, to be able to integrate it into the Swiss city’s public transport system by 2017.

CARB’s new ZEV regulations might be bad news for Tesla as rules for zero emission credits changed. While the maximum number of credits one vehicle can gain went up (7 to 9), it is now harder to qualify as the EV in question needs to be capable to refuel to 95% within only 15 minutes and battery swapping does not count.
