The Liquid Air Energy Network launched its report Liquid air on the Highway on 04.06.2014 which describes the case for using liquid air or nitrogen as a part of the UK’s transport energy mix. E4tech welcomes this important report and hosted a related workshop where industry experts discussed research needs and new opportunities in this field. The workshop has succeeded in delivering strong conclusions on possible synergies, leading to opportunities for better collaboration and benefit to the UK.
Today E4tech is hosting an industry expert workshop to look at synergies between emerging low temperature technologies on road vehicles, including refrigeration, cryogenic fuels, new internal combustion thermodynamics, and novel applications of low temperatures. These areas of research and application are not joined up - the question is, should they be? More information is available here.
