Daimler Buses introduces Citaro hybrid bus; available on diesel and gas models; separate 48V network

Green Car Congress

The electric motor on the Citaro hybrid assists the combustion engine when high levels of power are required, particularly when moving off. Instead, the electric motor reduces the burden on the engine while also improving the vehicle’s start-off characteristics. This does not involve lowering the engine’s speed—the peak output is simply throttled imperceptibly with the electric motor making up the difference. Both the inverter and the electric motor are water-cooled.

Caterpillar Marine Power Systems introduces Marine Hybrid System

Green Car Congress

The XeroPoint Hybrid system consists of a diesel engine and an electric motor that independently or simultaneously drive a propulsion shaft. The system is targeted to vessels that have a duty cycle profile with extended periods of low- to medium-power requirements, as diesel engines are least efficient at these load levels. With only the diesel engine providing power, the electric motor acts as a shaft-driven generator providing power to meet the vessels hotel loads.

The authors also concluded that in all cases, the supply of double counting fuels (FAME/HVO from waste oils, Ethanol 2G, Biomass To Liquid diesel) is critical. They found that adopting a majority combination of 10% ethanol in gasoline (E10) and 7% biodiesel in diesel (B7) was the most pragmatic way of achieving the target with the vehicles and infrastructure available over the next five years. Illustrative impact of the fuel roadmap. Source: LowCVP, Element Energy. Click to enlarge.

PHEVLERs are the Zero CO2 Clean Green Machines of the Future

Green Car Congress

The Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle with Long Electric Range (PHEVLER - pronounced “fevler”) is a new category emerging in the electric vehicle marketplace. PHEVLERs are defined as PHEVs with sufficient battery capacity for all electric driving of twice the average daily distance. [ 1 ] The average daily driving distance in the USA is 30 miles (48 km), so PHEVLERs are vehicles with at least 60 miles (97 km) of electric range.

Green Car Congress

The main potential applications are in electricity storage, transport and the recovery of waste heat. A cryogenic engine such as the Dearman piston engine produces zero emissions at the point of use; has low greenhouse gas emissions provided the liquid air or nitrogen is produced from low carbon electricity; has energy and power density on a level with battery electric technology; and has the potential for rapid refueling. Example power cycle of the cryogenic (e.g.,
