Autonomous taxi with chaperon: Start-up NuTonomy has begun testing its self-driving electric shuttles in Singapore. Riding the retrofitted Renault Zoe and Mitsubishi i-MiEV is free. For now, there is still a NuTonomy employee sitting behind the steering wheel.
Battery alliance : South Korean battery material supplier Ecopro and Chinese recycling company GEM have formed a joint venture to set up a production site for cathode materials in the city of Pohang. The factory will most likely open its doors in 2017.
Inductive bidirectional charging: The U.S. Department of Energy financially supports a joint research project by UPS, Workhorse, Calstart, Cisco and the Oak Ridge laboratory that aims to developed inductive charging technology for electric trucks. The system should also be able to re-receive energy.
Crystal clear: Researcher at the Technical University of Lausanne have developed cheaper a method to store solar energy in the form of hydrogen. They are using a self-built scalable solar water splitting device that does not use any rare-earth materials and is connected to new-generation, crystalline silicon solar cells.
