Energy Storage - Promising Technology
The importance and attractiveness of energy storage as an integral part of the electrical supply, transmission and distribution systems is receiving increasing attention by a wide range of stakeholders including utilities, end-users, grid system operators and regulators. To evaluate and quantify that “importance” and “attractiveness” requires an assessment and quantification of specific benefits and a characterization of specific value propositions.
The electric planes could mark a major milestone in the world of aviation and a bid to make air travel more environmentally-friendly. Indeed, the electric planes would reduce carbon emissions, as well as noise from their operations. It could also prove a more budget-friendly option for airlines - which could in turn result in cheaper fares for passengers too.
Companies like Easyjet has revealed plenty of progress already in place, as its partner Wright Electric begins the next phase of development. Currently, the company's partner Axter Aerospace already has a two seater aircraft flying, but now work has begun on powering a nine-seater aircraft, expected to start flying in 2019.
Which means easyJet is one step closer to engines which could power its passenger planes for short-haul routes - and in fact work will begin on an easyJet size aircraft by designer Darold Cummings.
Electric Vehicle Industry
Over 1 million electric cars were sold in 2017 – a new record – with more than half of global sales in China. The total number of electric cars on the road surpassed 3 million worldwide, an expansion of over 50% from 2016. In terms of share, Norway remains the world’s most advanced market for electric car sales, with over 39% of new sales in 2017. Iceland follows at 11.7%, then Sweden at 6.3%.
Private chargers at homes and workplaces were estimated to number almost 3 million worldwide in 2017. In addition, there were about 430 000 publicly accessible chargers worldwide in 2017, on one quarter of which were fast chargers. Fast chargers are especially important in densely populated cities and are also essential to increase the appeal of EVs by enabling long distance travel.
