Vehicles and Aerospace Drive Energy Harvesting Forward

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Vehicles and Aerospace Drive Energy Harvesting Forward
By Dr Peter Harrop, Chairman, IDTechEx

It has been a long wait. In 1834, Thomas Davenport demonstrated the first electric car in the UK. Pure electric mobility aids for the disabled (power chairs, etc) sell at around the million unit level every year and most fork lift trucks across the world are electric so he certainly achieved something. All electric golf cars peaked at about 300,000 units yearly but unfortunately pure electric on-road cars have yet to sell in more than tens of thousands yearly. Mainly it is a problem of inadequate range from available batteries, lack of charging infrastructure and lack of realistic fast charging. However, there are huge government incentives, new in 2009, to break these logjams. Meanwhile, hybrid gasoline-electric cars will tide us over. Here a big improvement is the availability from 2009 onwards of more and more plug-in hybrids with big enough batteries to go at least tens of miles on the much cheaper electricity alone if that is your wish.

See the future of energy harvesting

In all forms of electric vehicle, power management is key and any form of energy harvesting is welcome. The modern car will therefore increasingly use regenerative braking, solar panels outside and maybe energy harvesting shock absorbers and other forms of energy harvesting as well. Even those not interested in the automotive industry can learn from its eager adoption of types of energy harvesting that need volume to be used elsewhere.  Regenerative braking is already commonplace in pure electric cars. From 2009, the photovoltaic car roof will increasingly be the norm as well, initially only powering accessories but later, when transparent film solar is available and over the whole car, providing significant traction power as well, in sunny countries.

This idea is not new, as evidenced by the 1982 solar powered “car” in Germany.

The world’s largest car company Toyota has a $5 billion electric vehicle business already and IDTechEx projects in its new report “Hybrid and Pure Electric Cars 2009-2019″ that Toyota’s sales of hybrid cars will pass one million in 2014. The global sales of all forms of electric car from all suppliers will be 3.125 million at that time, forecasts IDTechEx. Clearly such volume will be an excellent opportunity for numbers driven cost reduction of many forms of energy harvesting, benefiting the use of harvesting elsewhere. Is there a place for the new lightweight vibration harvesting to drive accessories for example?

The best selling Toyota hybrid is the Prius. It is the best selling hybrid car in the world by a big margin. Toyota’s third-generation Prius appeared this year with an optional solar panel on its roof. The panel powers a ventilation system that can cool the car without help from the engine, Toyota says.

In addition, Solar Electric Vehicles has been offering a solar roof conversion for existing Prius vehicles.

Because the Toyota cars are fully crash tested on-road vehicles and currently used solar cells are heavy, the total weight precludes use of solar roofing to drive them along, though getting an extra five to fifteen miles range is not unusual.

“Being able to power a car entirely with solar is a pretty far-reaching goal,” said Tony Markel, a senior engineer at the federal government’s National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden, Colorado.
In the new Prius, the photovoltaics provide energy for a ventilation fan that helps cool the parked car on sunny, hot days. The driver can start the fan remotely before stepping into the car. Once the car is started, the air conditioning will not need as much energy from a battery to do the rest of the cooling. Although palm sized solar car coolers that fit in the window to cool the parked car have been available for some time, the Toyota roof unit does a far more robust job and does not make a break in easier.

The next stage will be sufficient solar power to run the air conditioning at all times in sunny countries, via battery storage. The best thing about using any form of harvesting in a car is that it all saves on gasoline.

Unfortunately, hybrids may put on weight as they become the plug-in versions most desired by users. Plug-in hybrids permit the driver to go useful distance such as tens of miles, on all electric power, saving a lot of cost over gasoline. On the other hand, pure electric vehicles have no gasoline engine but that weight can be offset by the extra size of battery required. They will also benefit from new photovoltaics. Surely someone will use the new flexible copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), di-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) or organic photovoltaics to make unfolding or unwinding panels that increase the area harvested during parking. Imaginative design required please. There will be cross fertilization from experience of energy harvesting in aerospace, something reflected in a forthcoming conference.

Thousands of motor enthusiasts attend the opening of the region’s largest and most popular Motor Show

United Arab Emirates, 14th November 2007 - The 9th edition of the Middle East International Motor Show, popularly known as the Dubai Motor Show, opened at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre today. The event was inaugurated by Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Technology & Media Free Authority. After the inauguration, Sheikh Maktoum and his VIP entourage toured the exhibition and got a glimpse of the latest designs and models unveiled by the biggest names in the automotive industry.

Thousands of motor enthusiasts queued up to be the first ones to get their eyes on the stunning designs and prototypes on display, and the turbocharged excitement in the air was clearly palpable. 650 companies displayed their best and newest in the expansive 50,000 square meter display area. The show has grown in size and stature compared to the last edition, with more exhibitors, newer brands and more people in attendance.

Dubai World Trade Centre, the show’s organiser, has delivered an event that is bigger and better than ever before. The visitors were thrilled to see many first-time additions to the show, such as the Cars of the Stars walkway, Dubai’s first solar powered car and the exciting West Coast Customs remodeling a car live at the show. Speed lovers got more than they expected when they got a glimpse of not just the Shelby Ultimate Aero, the fastest production car in the world, but also ten of the fastest production cars in the world. Even the kids had a gala time, with the Porsche Driving School teaching them the basics of safe driving in the most fun way possible.

Our aim was to transform the show from a mega car exhibition into an experience that is entertaining and educational for all. I am extremely pleased that we are presenting a wide spectrum of displays and attractions that are innovative and awe inspiring for motor enthusiasts and the public alike said Mr. Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of Dubai World Trade Centre.

Some of the biggest names in the motor world, including Maybach, Maserati, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Toyota, Hyundai, Ford, General Motors and Jeep, just to name a few, made their presence felt at the show. Visitors to the show also got the first ever glimpse of the Maybach S62 Landaulet, which had its world premier at the show yesterday, as well as a series of other regional launches from key manufacturers.

Visitors to the show can also try their luck in the many competitions and giveaways throughout the show. If the response to the first day is anything to go by, one can definitely expect four more days of power-packed excitement to come.

The Dubai Motor Show 2007 will be held from 14-18 November 2007 from 11 am to 10 pm, and from 3 pm to 10pm on Friday, 16th of November.
