Hydrogen at High speed!

E4tech client GreenGT unveiled its pre-production Pininfarina H2Speed at the Geneva International Motor Show last week. The H2Speed’s aerodynamics have been refined and the 250 kW fuel cell (plus batteries) can feed 480kW (653bhp) to the wheels, taking the car to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 300km/h. The chassis is […]

Bioenergy for Sustainable Energy Access in Africa

Scaling-up modern bioenergy in Africa – what next?

Modern bioenergy production could become an important part of the energy solution in Sub-Saharan Africa, addressing the challenge of increasing energy demand and improving energy access for poor people by making use of the large amount of biomass residues which are produced as a by-product of agricultural value chains. However, in spite of significant and […]

China offers lessons for future of fuel cell vehicles

With over a million plug in vehicles in China and fewer than 500 fuel cell vehicles it would seem like the latter’s chances are slim. But recent moves suggest that China is far from decided, with a strong government-industry alliance and policies underpinning a national target for a million vehicles and over a thousand hydrogen […]

Advanced drop-in biofuels in the UK to 2030

The UK has ambitious decarbonisation targets, and advanced drop-in biofuels could play a key part in reducing GHG emissions from hard-to-decarbonise transport sectors such as aviation and freight. E4tech was asked by the UK Department for Transport (DfT) to evaluate the potential for production of advanced drop-in biofuels to 2030. The resulting insights on the […]

Waking the sleeping giant of small scale demand-side response in UK

The challenge of integrating large amounts of intermittent cheap renewable electricity requires a transformation of the energy system. The use of demand-side response (DSR) from distributed sources in homes, shops and offices is a potential source of flexibility. Controlling loads interactively also allows convergence between the electricity, heat and mobility sectors and helps to build […]
