With the ever-increasing worldwide demand for energy, and the looming crisis in petroleum supplies, energy storage is emerging as an important area of research. Due to ever increasing concerns on energy conservation and environmental protection, the hybrid vehicle (HV) is a widely accepted interim solution for evolving from the conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle to the clean electrified vehicle. This book discusses new developments, energy management and emerging technologies of hybrid vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.
Though oil prices have been on a downward trajectory in recent months, that doesn't obscure the fact that fossil fuels are finite, and we will eventually have to grapple with the end of their dominance. At the same time, however, skepticism about the alternatives remains: we've never quite achieved the promised "too cheap to meter" power of the future, be it nuclear, solar, or wind. And hydrogen and bio-based fuels are thus far a disappointment. So what does the future of energy look like? The Tesla Revolution has the answers. In clear, unsensational style, Willem Middelkoop and Rembrandt Koppelaar offer a layman's tour of the energy landscape, now and to come. They show how rapid technological advances in batteries and solar technologies are already driving large-scale transformations in power supply, while economic and geopolitical changes, combined with a growing political awareness that there are alternatives to fossil fuels will combine in the coming years to bring an energy revolution ever closer. Within our lifetimes, the authors argue, we will see changes that will reshape economics, the balance of political power, and even the most mundane aspects of our daily lives. Determinedly forward-looking and optimistic, though never straying from hard facts, The Tesla Revolution paints a striking picture of our global energy future.
