[TECH] eTec to Evaluate PHEV Fast-Charging and Smart Grid Interactions for the U.S. Department of Energy

Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation (eTec), a wholly owned subsidiary of ECOtality, Inc. (OTCBB: ETLY), a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, today announced it has launched a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) Grid Interaction Project to demonstrate and evaluate bi-directional fast-charging operations for PHEVs in conjunction with smart grid technologies for facility energy management. Funded by the USDOE through Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and supported by project partner V2Green, the project will demonstrate eTec’s ability to fast-charge a PHEV in 10 minutes and will analyze the benefits and costs of using the energy storage capability of PHEVs to provide energy back to a smart metered electric grid system.

“By evaluating the benefits and costs of bi-directional fast-charging for PHEV owners, recharging facilities and electric utilities, this project lays the foundation for the development of a public fast-charging infrastructure for on-road electric vehicles,” said Don Karner, President and CEO, eTec. “Not only does this project demonstrate the ability to fast-charge a PHEV in 10 minutes, but it also highlights the additional benefit of fast-charging systems for managing facility energy consumption.”

Pairing the eTec Minit-Charger fast-charge system with utility smart meter interconnections, the PHEV Grid Interaction Project will demonstrate and evaluate a bi-directional fast-charge system capable of both fast-charging a PHEV in 10 minutes and supplying the stored energy of a PHEV back to a smart grid. The project will utilize V2Green’s smart grid technology to enable charging facilities (home or business) to communicate and adaptively control the flow of energy between the fast-charged PHEVs and the grid. Better energy consumption management results from vehicles recharging during off-peak periods and providing stored energy back to the grid during periods of peak-demand. The project will also evaluate the impact of bi-directional fast-charging on PHEV battery life and performance as PHEVs involved in the project will be subject to strenuous charge-discharge cycles as each vehicle will be operated for a total of 5,440 miles.

“This project combines leading fast-charge and smart grid technologies to quantify the public value and benefit of intelligently controlled, bi-directional fast-charging,” said John Clark, president and CEO, V2Green. “In addition to reducing consumer energy costs by allowing more efficient energy consumption, fast, smart charging capabilities can reduce our oil dependence and allow us to diversify our energy portfolio with more renewable and sustainable energy sources.”

eTec, a wholly owned subsidiary of ECOtality, is a recognized leader in the research, development and testing of advanced transportation energy systems and infrastructures. Committed to commercially advancing clean electric technologies with clear market advantages, eTec manufactures and provides battery fast charge systems and fueling stations for electric and hydrogen powered vehicles.

[TECHNOLOGY] submarino que funciona íntegramente con energía solar

La Exposición Internacional de Zaragoza fue ayer el escenario de la presentación del primer submarino solar del mundo.

Goldfish, así se llama el proyecto de origen suizo, se mueve gracias a una plataforma solar flotante y móvil que tiene forma de nenúfar. Dicha plataforma está equipada con una central solar y una estación de recarga y es adaptable a múltiples aplicaciones industriales, turísticas o de transportes.

Sus creadores, los ingenieros Martin Pfisterer y Matthias Zelweger, explicaron ayer en el pabellón de Suiza el funcionamiento y las ventajas que ofrece el proyecto, desarrollado por la empresa eléctrica BKW-FMB Energie, y la compañía de transportes BLS SA, ambas ubicadas en el cantón de Berna.

El estudio de viabilidad del proyecto concluyó el pasado mes de junio con el resultado de que «es realizable desde el punto de vista técnico y puede obtener los permisos de explotación necesarios». Los costes para materializar la iniciativa se elevan a 10 millones de francos suizos y la primera inmersión del submarino está prevista para el segundo semestre de 2011.

El primer lugar donde se utilizará la plataforma será el lago Thun, en los Alpes suizos, donde flota como «una isla en medio del lago», según una de las responsables de la dirección del proyecto, Marie-Anne Kiener.

La plataforma hará también las funciones de embarcadero y alimentará tanto el submarino, como el trasbordador solar que trasladará a los visitantes desde tierra firma.

La plataforma cuenta con cinco satélites laterales donde se encuentran las placas fotovoltaicas que se direccionan maximizando el aporte de energía.

En total son 300 metros cuadrados de células fotovoltaicas, que cuentan con una potencia de 30 kilovatios. La movilidad de la isla se consigue a partir de de los motores subacuáticos que otorgan a la plataforma una capacidad de giro de 360 grados.

Tanto la plataforma como los diferentes elementos que desarrolla consiguen energía de una manera totalmente limpia. La planta almacena la energía generada en baterías, y carga los objetos dependientes de él mediante un cable.

El proyecto está pensado para sitios con poco espacio, debido a la densidad de edificios; en aguas con poco oleaje y en regiones con suficiente irradiación solar, según los responsables.

Asimismo, la plataforma se puede instalar en ríos, lagos o puertos. La plataforma flotante está equipada con una central solar y una estación de recarga.

«La energía que produce esta central solar debe ser suficiente para las inmersiones del submarino y para asegurar el funcionamiento de la plataforma. Esta se puede acomodar automáticamente en todo momento con una capacidad para 60 personas y es el atracadero para el submarino y el transportador solar», según los creadores del proyecto.

El submarino solar se construirá sobre la base de un submarino convencional de uso comercial que se adaptará de forma conveniente. Según los autores del proyecto, tanto la plataforma como los diferentes elementos que desarrolla consiguen energía de una manera totalmente limpia. Las dimensiones del vehículo subacuático pueden oscilar de los 20 a 30 metros de longitud, y podrá albergar de 20 a 30 pasajeros.

El submarino será capaz de sumergirse hasta 200 metros en 10 minutos, y su consumo diario es de 100 kilovatios hora, lo que permite cuatro inmersiones diarias. Además, contará con ojos de buey de 60 a 70 centímetros de diámetro para una visión de gran ángulo, reflectantes potentes para ver en la oscuridad de las aguas profundas, y podrá funcionar los 365 días del año.
