Aura to introduce 10 kW hybrid APU

Green Car Congress

Aura Systems, Inc. is working with Corvus Energy, a lithium-ion battery company, and an internal combustion engine maker, to bring to market a hybrid auxiliary power unit (APU) using the AuraGen power solution. The hybrid APU will use Corvus batteries, as the prime power source, while the AuraGen control and power management system, with its built in inverter, will provide AC power. In 2006, Aura introduced a 5 kW hybrid APU for long-haul trucks.

NASA satellite images highlight US air quality improvement with reduction of NO2

Green Car Congress

After ten years in orbit, the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on NASA’s Aura satellite has been in orbit sufficiently long to show that people in major US cities are breathing less nitrogen dioxide. The gas is produced primarily during the combustion of gasoline in vehicle engines and coal in power plants. New NASA satellite images released this week demonstrate the reduction of air pollution across the US.
