Formula-E-BerlinFormula E gets faster: FIA published the adjusted technical regulations for the upcoming season of the ePrix. Peak power output has been increased from 200 to 250 kW and maximal battery weight from 200 to 230 kg. The permitted race energy, however, remains the same, at 28 kWh.

Cash injection for aluminium-air battery: Israeli battery start-up Phinergy received another 50m dollars for the development of its aluminium-air battery. Aluminium manufacturer Alcoa contributed 10m dollars. Phinergy has been able to raise a total of 288m dollars to date.

Hybrids take flight: The NASA Glenn Research Center is working on hybridising passenger airplanes, hoping to decrease the use of kerosene by up to 30 percent. Considering that U.S. airlines alone annually use 8.9bn tons of fuel, adding electric motors could make a significant difference.
