    摘要:Batteries Published on August 11th, 2020 | by Press Release 0 Rolls-Royce Commences Series Production of Hybrid-Ready MTU PowerPacks for Irish Rail Twitter LinkedIn Facebook August 11th, 2020 by Press Release Irish national railway operator orders 41 hybrid-ready PowerPacks Delivery scheduled to commence next summer, with options for future hybrid conversion Image courtesy Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail Rolls-Royce is to supply its very first series production MTU PowerPacks which are prepared for future use as hybrid traction units: Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, the national railway operator of the Republic of Ireland, has ordered 41 of these MTU Hybrid-ready PowerPacks. Fitted with MTU 6H 1800 R86 engines, the PowerPacks comply with the EU Stage V emissions directives and each delivers 375 kW from the diesel engine as well as 150 kW from the electrical machine. Delivery is to commence in 2021, and the PowerPacks are to power Class 22000 trains on scheduled services from late 2022. At a later, yet to be decided stage Rolls-Royce could equip these PowerPacks with batteries, turning them into fully-fledged MTU Hybrid PowerPacks. The order is a further milestone in the partnership between Rolls-Royce and Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail. This currently includes refurbishing the fleet with new transmissions and testing both conventional EU Stage V and hybrid traction systems from 2021. Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail also plans to introduce into service further MTU Hybrid PowerPacks in the years to come.

JPG, 270 KB Peter Smyth, Chief Mechanical Engineer at Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, said: “Reducing the exhaust emissions of our trains is a key part of our commitment to sustainability and to the strategic ‘Ireland 2040’ project, and with Rolls-Royce we have the right traction partner on board to help us do that.” Jürgen Blassmann, Head of Rail Business at Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, said: “We are delighted to be playing this pioneering role with our strategic partner Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail in shaping the future of environmentally friendly rail transport: The series production MTU traction systems we are now supplying set new standards for cleanliness, reliability and fuel economy. Following conversion to MTU Hybrid PowerPacks, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail will use these drive systems to make fuel savings of over 30%, depending on the route, also reducing CO2 emissions by the same amount.” This new order is a new milestone of the close partnership between Rolls-Royce and Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail in recent years: A total of 234 MTU PowerPacks have been powering the Class 22000 trains for many years. In 2018, the partners agreed to refurbish MTU PowerPacks with new transmissions to achieve fuel savings of almost 20%. That same year, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail announced its intention to trial MTU PowerPacks for the EU Stage V emissions standard. In a second step, these are now to be converted to Hybrid PowerPacks starting next year. Trials of the EU Stage V PowerPacks are scheduled to get underway this August, following which all nine PowerPacks will be converted to Hybrid PowerPacks and commence operation at the end of 2021. Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail will also explore options to convert its fleet to hybrid operation at a later stage once the test runs have been successfully completed.

    摘要:Batteries Published on August 12th, 2020 | by Press Release 0 Huawei Showcases AI-Powered Smart PV Solution at SNEC 2020 Twitter LinkedIn Facebook August 12th, 2020 by Press Release SHANGHAI, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — On August 8–10, 2020, the SNEC 14th International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Exhibition & Conference are held in Shanghai New International Expo Center. With the theme of “+AI, Smart PV for Future, Enabling Smart PV to Be the Main Energy Source”, Huawei showcased its AI-powered all-scenario Smart PV Solution, shared its vision and responsibility as the industry leader, released its 24-hour green power residential solution and five key AI applications for PV. Huawei also received several certifications for its solar inverters related to grid-supporting, I-V Curve, and Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI), and released a series of technical whitepapers on I-V Curve and AFCI at the same time. 24-Hour Green Power Residential Solution Redefines Power Consumption Enjoying clean solar energy day and night is not a fiction anymore. Huawei launched the world’s first 24-hour green power residential solution, enabling a carbon-neutral lifestyle. It is estimated that utilizing this sustainable system translates to zero-emission and equivalent to planting 1300 trees per year. Optimizers could maximize PV modules’ energy yields (up to 30%) regardless of shading and inconsistent orientations. The AI-powered AFCI proactively mitigates fire risk with rapid shutdown technologies, achieving zero voltage on the rooftop and zero arc risks for dual-layer protection. Huawei’s residential intelligent battery LUNA2000 is the highlight of the exhibition. This battery features a streamlined appearance and uses lithium iron phosphate cells for upgraded safety. It adopts modular design and supports flexible power expansion (5–30 kWh). Each battery pack has a built-in energy optimizer and supports independent charge and discharge management. Old and new battery packs can be used together to fully unleash the potential of each battery. “X” Key AI Applications Reconstruct PV Intelligent tracker control algorithm reconstructs power generation: The neural network-based AI training and modeling enable trackers to be adjusted to the optimal angles, achieving better convergence of bifacial PV modules, trackers, and multi-MPPT smart PV controllers. This enables the entire DC system to reach the optimal status and unleashes the potential of each PV string. The test results show that the algorithm can increase the energy yield by more than 1%. Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis 4.0 reconstructs O&M: Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis 4.0 is further upgraded and has reached the industry’s highest level with a detection consistency and accuracy of over 95%, as certified by China General Certification Center. Besides, Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis 4.0 can adapt to more complex PV module scenarios, such as bifacial, shingled, and mixed PV modules. It takes only 15 minutes to complete online full detection for a 100 MW PV plant and automatically generate a report. 5 GW global application, combined with big data mining and AI self-learning, enables continuous optimization of the fault model for more accurate and sound judgment, making Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis one generation ahead of the industry level. The intelligent grid connection algorithm reconstructs grid connection: The grid parity era witnesses an increasing penetration rate of new energy sources. How to operate stably in weak power grids becomes a challenge in the industry. Huawei AI BOOST intelligent grid connection algorithm boasts accurate measurement and stable control. The PV system can run stably in various poor power grids (including the power grid with an SCR of 1.5), without grid disconnection or derating. This helps smart PV become the main energy source as well as a high-quality energy source. Intelligent AFCI reconstructs safety: Huawei is the first in the industry to integrate the AI algorithm into AFCI, enabling three unique features. First, the AI model continuously and efficiently learns more arc features, forming a database with over millions of arc features. Second, more than 92 arc feature comparison points are identified and analyzed based on the powerful computing capability of the local chip to implement precise detection and accurate reporting for better protection. Third, the power system is shut down within 0.5s, which is much shorter than 2.5s specified in the industry standard. Auto-mapping of PV modules reconstructs customer experience: Huawei’s distributed inverters incorporate the Digital Turbo technology for the first time. The built-in AI image recognition technology can intelligently generate the physical layout of PV modules within 5s, saving 86% configuration time and avoiding manual errors. New Platform + New Ecosystem, Accelerating Digital Transformation Based on the FusionSolar AI platform, Huawei uses the “platform + ecosystem” mode to gather different types of partners for the digital transformation of the new energy industry through the ecosystem. Huawei always adheres to the concept of “openness, cooperation, and win-win” and works together with customers and partners to build a smart PV ecosystem. Huawei Smart PV has cooperated with global key partners to build innovation centers and build a prosperous industry ecosystem with manufacturers of PV modules, transformers and trackers. Whitepapers and Industry Certifications China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI) Nanjing Branch issued Huawei the industry’s first certificate under the new national standard for solar inverters. This is the first certification being issued under the new national standard (GB/T 37408 Technical Requirements for PV Plant Grid-supporting Inverters). Huawei’s smart string inverter has become the first in the industry to pass the new national standard assessment, setting a new benchmark for the industry and grid-supporting technology. Huawei together with leading testing and certification organization China General Certification Center (CGC) releases the String PV Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis Technological White Paper and Technical White Paper on DC Arcing Intelligent Detection (AFCI) for PV Systems.

  • [资讯] Ride The Lightning: A Conversation With Zero Motorcycles
    摘要:Batteries Published on August 13th, 2020 | by Joe Wachunas 0 Ride The Lightning: A Conversation With Zero Motorcycles Twitter LinkedIn Facebook August 13th, 2020 by Joe Wachunas By Joe Wachunas and Sergio Lopez The transportation nonprofit Forth is partnering with CleanTechnica on a webinar devoted to electric motorcycles along with Dan Quick from Zero motorcycles on August 19. Register here for this free event!   Electric motorcycles have come a long way in the last 10 years and exciting things are on the horizon. New models are coming out from big players and sales of e-motos are skyrocketing. We interviewed Dan Quick, director of communications for Zero Motorcycles, for the latest on where we’re going and where we’ve been in this rapidly developing sector. Forth: What is the overall state of the electric motorcycle market?  Dan Quick: Booming. While the overall powersports market has been, at best, flat since the subprime mortgage collapse of 2008–2009, electric motorcycles, and Zero Motorcycles in particular, have been enjoying a much different trendline. We’re seeing a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 40–60% across all models year-over-year and the interest in and appetite for electric motorcycles only seems to be increasing. Forth: How much has the e-motorcycle market changed over the last 10 years? What developments have been made?  DQ: There was a time when simply connecting a battery to a motor and making a wheel spin was quite an achievement, and of course one would be correct in believing they could basically accomplish the same thing by ordering some parts online. Because Zero has evolved significantly from that point, there have been milestones achieved along the way that signal new eras of electric motorcycling; bikes that get over 200 miles range, exceeding 100 MPH, and even a full charge in about an hour. Forth: Where do you see e-motorcycles headed in the next 5–10 years?  DQ: Electric motorcycles are still very much a nascent technology, and as a result advances in every area from power and energy density and delivery to the propulsion systems themselves are happening rapidly. Ongoing development inside of Zero will inevitably focus on the typical – how far, how fast, how long, how much – types of information. We welcome that from the industry, as well, because increased innovation will only aid in the overall health of it as a whole. It’s also safe to say that the power grid and EV charging infrastructure as well as government incentives will all be areas that will experience revolutionary growth and development over the next decade.   Forth: What emotional connections do people have with internal combustion engine (ICE) bikes that are challenges to adoption of electric ones?  DQ: I think it’s human nature to resist change. To paraphrase what Henry Ford famously said, if he asked people what they wanted they’d have told him a faster horse. I think that speaks volumes for the emotional connection people feel for their “first.” First kisses, first cars, and first anything else’s are always fondly remembered for their momentousness. Ultimately, though, the pure exhilaration of riding a motorcycle is greater on a Zero because an electric motorcycle strips away all of the excess to just the pure, essential riding experience.  Forth: Can you tell me in a few words how electric motorcycles are better than fossil fuel–driven motos?  DQ: Let’s start with what is most important. The riding experience. … Motorcycling as an experience is something that engages all the senses. Electric motorcycles are fundamentally different in almost every way. The physical surge that a rider feels as he or she is pressed backwards onto the pillion while accelerating is free of any of the staccato interruptions that manipulating through gears on an ICE bike requires.  For riders who get to enjoy the Pacific Northwest, they will know nothing smells quite like a Tillamook forest bed when it’s dewy and clear. Furthermore, the sound of your neighboring rider’s voice as you ride and actually can have a discussion through traffic is at first bewildering without the constant battle with engine noise. Hopefully riders are more liberated from the traditional distractions and manipulations required to pilot an ICE bike that they can sit back and enjoy the view that much more. This all doesn’t even begin to address the fact that riding an electric motorcycle is better for both the environment and the wallet, as well. Forth: What are the advantages/disadvantages for a motorcycle to make artificial noise? DQ: It’s common to hear even the most grizzled of riders laughing with delight after riding a Zero for the first time, so in that sense manufactured sounds can be a good thing. Personally, I don’t have any moment where I wish my electric motorcycle sounded anything different than it does. Quiet, yes, silent, no. There’s an evocative and futuristic quality to the sound of an accelerating SR/S that I highly encourage everyone to experience. They’ll begin to understand the separation of sound from noise. Zeros don’t make noise, but the futuristic sound is unmistakable. Forth: How important is the clutch to motorcycles? And how many e-motorcycles have one? DQ: Not one of the award-winning Zero Motorcycles has a clutch, therefore I’m convinced the clutch is nonessential to a motorcycle. Even F1 racecars don’t have clutches but rather shifting paddles and clearly they represent the apex of four wheel automotive racing technology. Again, riding a Zero is hallmarked by the removal of all excess and distilling the experience down to only the essentials, and clearly a clutch hasn’t made the cut. Forth: One way that some people are introduced to electric cars is to acquire one for their second car. How does this apply to motorcycles? Should folks start out buying an electric motorcycle for their second or third bike? DQ: I’d be thrilled for all second and third motorcycles to be Zeros, of course, but the reality is that more and more riders are opting to enter into, or return to riding aboard a Zero. Zero sponsored an amazing program the past two years through the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows that allowed for new riders, truly new and unlicensed ones, to have their first motorcycle experience on a Zero. Additionally, we have a large segment of our owners who do own multiple motorcycles similar to how you’ve described, as well. Inevitably, those riders tend to move their Zero closer to the front of the garage, and their previously most-ridden ICE bike tends to get ridden much less. Forth: Can you take an e-motorcycle on a road trip yet? What does that look like?  DQ: Absolutely, anywhere motorcycles can go. In fact, while we’ve been having Zero owners complete transcontinental rides and Cannonball Run-style rides for years, we’ve even seen a spike in Adventure riding milestones, as well. Last year a couple rode their Zero Motorcycles from Europe to the bottom of the African continent. Really, the only thing you can’t do on a Zero is wake up your neighbors when pulling in and out of your driveway. Forth: What does the typical charging experience look like for e-motorcycles both around town and on trips?  DQ: Every Zero can charge anywhere you can charge your cellphone, and just as how you begin your day with a fully charged cellphone, so too will your Zero be full and ready every time you swing a leg over. Also, most models are also Level 2 charging capable, as well. There are over 60,000 public EV charge stations in the United States and the vast majority of them (over 90%) are all Level 2. Additionally, a Level 2 charger operates off of the same voltage that large home appliances do, so adding the hardware to a garage can be a home project for the electrical-savvy, or as cheap as a couple hundred bucks for folks like myself. Perhaps the best way to describe the charging experience on a Zero would be; convenient.  Images courtesy of Zero Motorcycles Appreciate CleanTechnica’s originality?

  • [资讯] Dear Mr. Elon Musk: A Letter From Russian Indigenous Peoples About Nickel Mining Pollution
    摘要:Batteries Published on August 13th, 2020 | by Carolyn Fortuna 0 Dear Mr. Elon Musk: A Letter From Russian Indigenous Peoples About Nickel Mining Pollution Twitter LinkedIn Facebook August 13th, 2020 by Carolyn Fortuna A network of independent experts, activists, leaders, and organizations of Russian indigenous peoples has called on Tesla CEO Elon Musk to boycott a Russian mining company until it meets specific ecologically-sound conditions. The letter to Musk acknowledges that Nornickel is an international leader in nickel production but is “also a global leader in environmental pollution.” Nornickel’s smelting processes have resulted in environmental degradation on the Taimyr Peninsula, including a 20,000 ton diesel fuel spill into a river in the fragile Arctic ecosystem. “The lands of indigenous people appropriated by the company for industrial production now resemble a lunar landscape, and traditional use of these lands is no longer possible,” the letter to Musk reads. Dead forest due to pollution near Monchegorsk on the Kola Peninsula. Photo courtesy of Thomas Nilsen, The Barents Observer Aborigen Forum is an informal association of 39 independent experts, activists, leaders, and organizations of Russian indigenous peoples from 14 regions of the North, Siberia, and the Far East of the Russian Federation. The Arctic region environment is particularly vulnerable to pollution, and it can take decades to recover from a single environmental incident. The main areas of activity of the Aborigen Forum are the protection and implementation of the rights of Russian indigenous peoples, analysis of legislation, monitoring places of residence and economic activity, development of partnerships with other organizations, international cooperation, and work with authorities at all levels. An Open Letter & Plea for Mining Environmental Stewardship With mines and metallurgical factories on the Taimyr Peninsula and in the Murmansk region, Nornickel is the world’s largest nickel producer. Yet the Aborigen Forum describes Nornickel’s environmental pollution there as a “routine occurrence,” pointing to a river oil spill on the Taimyr Peninsula as an ongoing environmental disaster, “but not an isolated incident.” Musk made a plea in late July for miners to produce more nickel, which is a key ingredient in the batteries that power the company’s electric cars. He warned that the current cost of batteries remains a big hurdle to the company’s growth. Nickel increases battery density so that electric cars have greater range on a single charge. “Tesla will give you a giant contract for a long period of time if you mine nickel efficiently and in an environmentally sensitive way,” Musk said during a Q2 2020 post-earnings call. In a letter to Musk, the Aborigen Forum alludes to Musk’s promise to source in “an environmentally sensitive way” and urges Tesla not to buy nickel, copper, and other products from Nornickel until it conducts a full and independent assessment of the vast environmental damage caused by its production. The Aborigen Forum asks that the following conditions be met if Tesla business with Nornickel is implemented. Nornickel would need to: Conduct a full and independent assessment of the environmental damage of mining for nickel and other metals in Russia’s Taymyr Peninsula and Murmansk Oblast. Such an assessment would determine the harm from the ongoing Norilsk diesel oil spill and consider the damage done by industrial production to traditional economic activities of indigenous peoples, an on-going environmental disaster, “but not an isolated incident.” Compensate indigenous communities for the damages done to their traditional way of life. Prepare and implement a plan for re-cultivating contaminated lands in the Taymyr Peninsula and Murmansk Oblast. Revise its policies for engaging with indigenous peoples. The new guidelines would be informed by the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, including the need to obtain free and informed consent prior to the approval of any project affecting indigenous lands or territories and other resources, particularly in connection with the development, utilization, or exploitation of mineral, water, or other resources. The letter states: “We are aware of Tesla Inc.’s policies on human rights. The Company’s Code of Conduct for suppliers prescribes minimizing negative impact on the environment in all activities in order for the global economy to transition to sustainable energy. We call on Tesla, Inc. to refrain from cooperation with Nornickel and announce this decision publicly, until the abovementioned policies are implemented by the Russian nickel supplier.” Elon Musk’s Call for Increased Nickel Mining Electric vehicles, which consume a much smaller amount of nickel than traditional industries such as stainless steel makers, are forecast to be the quickest growth market for nickel miners. “The real limitation on Tesla growth is cell production at affordable price. That’s the real limit,” Musk reiterated. He expanded that the company would expand its business with Panasonic (6752.T) and CATL (300750.SZ) and “possibly with others.” Tesla’s needs for more nickel is part of a company plan to increase production of its catalog of all-electric vehicles as well as its solar projects. Tesla currently sources nickel-cobalt-manganese (NCM) batteries from South Korea’s LG Chem Ltd (051910.KS) and nickel-cobalt-aluminium (NCA) batteries from Japan’s Panasonic Corp (6752.T). Reuters reports that these companies indirectly buy nickel from mining companies in a long auto supply chain, yet Tesla doesn’t disclose which nickel miners are in that supply chain. The International Nickel Study Group (INSG) estimates the global refined market was in a supply surplus of 57,300 tons after the first 5 months of the year, representing a sharp turnaround from a deficit of 31,500 tons at the same point of 2019. London Metal Exchange (LME) nickel stocks are plentiful at 234,636 tons, and LME time spreads continue to trade without delay, contrasting with a tightening trend in other metals such as copper. Nornickel prides itself on having access to a “unique mineral resource base” with “active development of first-class assets in Russia,”  “constant expansion of the resource base,” and “geological exploration (that) ensures the maintenance of the volume and optimal structure of mineral reserves.” And they’re ravaging native natural resources. Nornickel ranks among the top 10 copper producers. It also produces cobalt. All 3 minerals are important components in the current booming battery production for electric vehicles. Local Knowledge: In Mining & Life | Russian Indigenous Peoples In an interview with The Barents Observer, Dmitry Berezhkov, an expert working with the Aborigen-Forum, indicates many obstacles exist for indigenous peoples in the region to have their voices heard. “It is not only difficult, it became impossible during the recent years,” he says. “Russia is building a new Arctic industrial reality rapidly, and indigenous people are not considered in these activities at all.” “In reality, they don’t pay any attention to indigenous peoples’ rights on the ground,” he continues. “We consider Musk’s request to nickel producers as an occasion to pay attention to the environmental degradation of indigenous peoples’ traditional lands.” Indigenous peoples who live in the Murmansk region are the Sámi, and the Nentsy, Nganasan, Entsy, Dolgan, and Evenki live on the Taimyr Peninsula in Siberia. These communities have preserved the traditional life, culture, and economy of northern peoples, including reindeer herding, hunting, and fishing. Indigenous people view a clean environment as a key factor for survival in harsh northern conditions.
