Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are hybrids with high-capacity batteries that can be charged by plugging them in. Although PHEVs do not have to be plugged in to be driven, they will not achieve optimal fuel consumption or maximum driving range without charging.
As the primary source of biofuels in North America, many organizations are conducting research in the area of ethanol production. The National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center (NCERC) is a research division of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville dedicated solely to ethanol-based biofuel research projects. On the federal level, the USDA conducts a large amount of research regarding ethanol production in the United States. Much of this research is targeted toward the effect of ethanol production on domestic food markets. A division of the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), has also conducted various ethanol research projects, mainly in the area of cellulosic ethanol.
The world is requiring more renewable sources of energy to meet its needs. With decades of expertise in feedstock, bioprocessing and biofuel production, DuPont has answered the call with a fully integrated process that converts biomass to cellulosic ethanol.
This farm-to-fuel system is applied in our Nevada, Iowa biorefinery, which will produce 30 million gallons of fuel-grade ethanol a year, with a licensing model that can be applied anywhere in the world. Learn more about how DuPont is reforming energy in Iowa, and around the globe:
With lower fuel cost and less emissions, many automakers and fleets are turning to compressed natural gas (CNG) as a vehicle fuel. Even though the fuel has been used in this capacity for decades, increasing prices of gasoline and growing concern for the environment has reignited interest. In this video we talk with Kathryn Clay, the executive director of the Drive Natural Gas Initiative, and Stephe Yborra, the director of market development at NGV America, about the growth, development and future of CNG in America.
Leo Laporte shows Megan Morrone the new Tesla Model X.
The best hybrids give you the best of both worlds: some zero-emission motoring, as well as greater range for longer journeys.
Why is the United States not able to do, what Brazil has done years ago.
For a more sustainable America, for energy independence, for the creation of new jobs, CNG usage should be promoted.
In this video you will see the reasons why you should use E15.
In this video you can see how you can save 1500$ each year by driving 7 times cheaper with natural gas.
In this video you can see, how waste is used to generate biogas and other products. There are a lot of usages for biogas. Using alternative fuels will make you energy independent.
In this video you can see why you should reduce the addiction to foreign oil and what your contribution might be.
2017 Long range Renault Zoe EV A practical winner First Drive, That's because Renault has managed to increase the Zoe's range with an impressive 41-kWh battery, called the R90, that gives an official NEDC range of 403 kilometers (250 miles). Sure, the NEDC range is a optimistic fiction concocted by European regulators – something that even Renault admits – but the new Zoe's real-world range should be around 200 km (124 miles) in the winter and 300 km (186 miles) in the summer. Compared to the first-gen Zoe's 250 km (155 mile) NEDC range, this is a tremendous improvement.
Andrew Frankel reviews the Renault Zoe – one of a new breed of all electric cars that can truly claim to be a practical alternative to traditional fuel cars.
