This is a blog about electric vehicles and energy. I mainly repost other stories that I find on other websites. I am a graduate student at WVU in the mechanical engineering program. my other blog is JustinRCole.net Check out Filmstowatch.tumblr.com, my gf Ash runs it.

Department of Energy 3D prints an all-electric Shelba Cobra Carroll Shelby’s iconic Cobra roadster has been making jaws drop for half a century now. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cobra’s debut the US Department of Energy built one of its own. The new Cobra’s entire chassis and bodywork–from the passenger monocoque to the grille and headrests–were 3D printed from carbon fiber reinforced ABS using the Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. And while the exterior of the new Cobra is nearly indistinguishable from its predecessor, they look nothing alike under the hood. The DoE’s Cobra is, in fact, completely electric. Engadget

Perovskite Solar Cell Bests Bugbears, Reaches Record Efficiency Perovskite solar cells are one of the hottest prospects in clean energy research, offering good power outputs from low-cost materials that are relatively simple to process into working devices. But their rapid progress has not been without some stumbling blocks. Firstly, the cells’ power conversion efficiency often varies depending on how it is measured, suggesting an underlying instability in the cells’ light-gathering perovskite materials. That’s bad news for photovoltaic panels that need to work for a decade or more. Secondly, researchers were struggling to extend the range of the light wavelengths that the cells could harvest, a key strategy for improving their efficiency beyond the 20 percent or so achieved by typical silicon or thin-film solar cells. Some of the field’s leading lights have spent much of last year grappling with these issues.Now a team researchers in South Korea has developed a perovskite blend that addresses both these challenges, and delivers what they say is the highest-efficiency perovskite cell to date. IEEE Spectrum

Storing Solar Energy: A great idea caught on contested groundAdding energy storage to sites with rooftop solar power generation offers a range of potential benefits. A battery can help smooth out solar’s inherently variable supply of power to the local grid, and even keep buildings powered during blackouts. Consequently, power-conversion innovators are developing a host of new products designed to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of integrated solar-storage systems. Some analysts project a boom in the co-location of solar and energy storage. GTM Research, for example, foresees that co-located PV and storage will grow from $42 million in 2014 to more than $1 billion by 2018. However, the market is moving slower than it might thanks to a little-discussed regulatory roadblock in the United States.According to Vic Shao, CEO for the Santa Clara, California-based energy storage startup Green Charge Networks, tightly integrating storage with photovoltaics in some key states—including Hawaii and California—runs afoul of the “net metering” rules by which PV owners earn lucrative retail rates for the surplus power they feed to the grid. Adding storage can disqualify solar systems for net metering, in which utilities can pay their owners wholesale power rates that are several times lower than retail. “That is obviously a pretty big problem for anybody considering solar. That could kill a lot of projects,” says Shao. IEEE Spectrum

This Supercapacitor Is Paper-Thin, Stores Energy as Well as a BatteryA team of researchers from UCLA Berkeley has developed a new supercapacitor which is paper-thin, super-fast to charge and can match batteries with its energy storage density.In a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers explain how they’ve developed the supercapacitor. Using laser-scribed graphene in combination with manganese-dioxide, the team has produced a supercapacitor which is one-fifth the thickness of a sheet of paper. The production methods don’t require complex dry labs or or extreme temperatures, either.Supercapacitors are attractive because they charge in seconds as opposed to hours. But they currently lack the energy density to plausibly power most energy-hungry devices.More after the break. Gizmodo

emergentfutures: WSJ: GM to release the $30,000 Chevy Bolt electric vehicle in 2017 Looks like General Motors is about to go head to head against Tesla with a new electric vehicle called Chevy Bolt (yes, Bolt with a B) — at least according to The Wall Street Journal. The publication’s sources say the Bolt can travel 200 miles on a single charge (the 2013/2014 Volt can only last 38 miles on a charge) and will be available in 2017 for $30,000. That makes it a direct competitor to Tesla’s Model 3, which has very, very similar specs and pricing. The WSJ also reveals that the car will “be designed to look more like a so-called crossover vehicle” and use battery manufactured by LG Chem Ltd. in South Korea. Full Story: Endgadget
