Mining equipment maker Medatech cleans up the air in underground mines

Emissions in underground mining are not only a hazard to workers’ health – they are expensive to mitigate. Diesel-powered drilling, anchoring and transport machines produce exhaust gases that have to be siphoned off by large ventilation units via purpose-built shafts, a laborious and cost-intensive proposition. One solution is to rely on electrically powered machines, which... Read more »

Ariel announces HIPERCAR, a bonkers 1,180hp lightweight micro-turbine electric beast

Ariel Motor Company, best known for the ultra-lightweight Atom sportscar, has just announced their plunge into electrification with their upcoming HIPERCAR, an ultra-high-performance range-extended electric supercar.  In contrast to most plug-in hybrids, HIPERCAR won’t use a traditional engine as its “range extender,” instead opting for a 35kW micro-turbine generator.

The car’s specs look suitably insane – 1180hp total from 4 in-wheel motors, 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds, and 0-150mph in 7.8 seconds.  That 0-150 time is nearly three seconds (!) faster than the Porsche 918.

Teaser images have been released, but the design has not been finalized.  While no price has been announced, it will “represent excellent value” when compared to “£1m+ supercars which it will outperform.”  The car will hit the road in 2020.

EGEB: Global crop yields to crash with 2°C warming; China to install 40GW+ solar; more

Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news.

How Deeply Will Rising Temperatures Cut into Crop Yields? – Twenty-nine researchers from across the globe conducted the analysis of more than 70 studies—covering various types of models, approaches and locations across the world—and found that existing research all led, consistently, in one direction. For every degree Celsius that the Earth warms, corn yields will go down an average of 7.4 percent, according to the study. Wheat yields similarly will drop by 6 percent on average for every degree Celsius that temperatures rise, rice yields by 3.2 percent, and soybean yields by 3.1 percent. To put that in perspective, governments worldwide have set a goal of reducing their greenhouse gas emissions enough to keep the global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius this century. The last sentence – that we’re ‘aiming’ for a 2 degree rise in temperature should really send a chill down your spine. We’re hoping, in a best case scenario, to lower wheat productivity by 12%, corn by 7.4%, rice by 6.4% and soybeans by 6.2%. Further studies show that not only will volume drop, but the quality of the volume will wall as well – rising carbon dioxide levels could drive down the protein content of staple crops, including rice by 7.6 percent and wheat by 7.8 percent by 2050. How many lives will be lost in the first famines?

Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news.

Dutch Utility Bets Its Future on an Unusual Strategy: Selling Less Power – When Eneco tested a promising energy monitor in several dozen homes – when Eneco sent workers to recover the monitors — a tenth of customers refused to open their doors. “They wanted to keep it,” said Tako in ’t Veld, a former Eneco executive who now leads the “smart energy” unit at Quby, the company that makes the energy meter. “They were so happy with the energy insight.” An electric utility that is now focusing on offering services beyond simply selling kilowatts – this is where other groups need start moving. The reality of electricity is that its a commodity that is no longer monopoly produced – just like Kodak can no longer make money off of selling film, its times to move on.

Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news.

Policy, Geospatial, and Market Factors in Solar Energy: a Gestalt Approach – In a research paper written by Dr. Wesley Herche, we’re shown that greater than 99% of all locations can have their energy – not just electricity, but energy- needs to be met by solar power within 50 miles of said locations. Dr. Herche (give him a pat on his twitter back for his recent dissertation defense) is a former senior intelligence officer and current executive leader at with experience in analyzing land and coming up with conclusions for professionals to act on. The values used to determine this conclusion are all very conservative – for instance, 10% solar panel efficiency was used when current standard efficiency panels are 60% greater and the premium product is 100-140% greater. This document proves that there are nearly zero places on the planet that cannot make solar power their primary source of energy.
