Provisional agreement reached on European CO2 standards for heavy-duty trucks; 30% lower by 2030

Green Car Congress

The European Parliament and the Council have reached provisional agreement on a regulation setting, for the first time in the EU, strict CO 2 emission standards for trucks. Under the agreement, emissions from new trucks will have to be 15% lower by 2025 and 30% lower in 2030 compared to 2019 emissions. The deal follows an agreement reached in December on new CO 2 emission standards for cars and light vans in the EU for the period after 2020.

NREL team shows wafer cost of gallium oxide can be >3× lower compared to SiC; 2x lower cost for power electronics

Green Car Congress

A team from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has shown by modeling that the wafer cost of an emerging Ga 2 O 3 wide bandgap semiconductor can be more than 3-times lower compared to SiC. This lower cost of the Ga 2 O 3 wafers should lead to less-expensive high-performance power electronic devices in the future. A paper on their work is published in the journal Joule. Modeled 6" wafer costs comparison for Ga 2 O 3 and SiC wafers, and the Ga 2 O 3 cost reduction potential.

BMW seeking quiet cooling technologies for fast charging of EVs

Green Car Congress

BMW is seeking alternative cooling technologies for vehicle batteries to further improve peak cooling capacity during fast charging while reducing cooling components’ vibration and noise emission. Solutions that meet the need criteria will be invited to work with BMW to evaluate and develop the idea. Faster charging creates more heat to be dissipated within a short period of time. Current technologies use electric refrigerant compressors.
