Patentan un cemento capaz de crear campos magnéticos y recargar coches eléctricos en movimiento


En los últimos años hemos visto varias iniciativas para lograr recargar las baterías de coches eléctricos y otros vehículos en movimiento. Algo con un gran potencial ya que permite ampliar la autonomía sin necesidad de contar con grandes baterías. El principal problema es que estos sistemas suelen ser bastante caros, y además cuentan con un fuerte impacto visual. Catenarias, o carriles en el asfalto que además suponen tener que modificar en algunos casos físicamente la carretera. Algo que puede resultar peligroso por ejemplo para las motos o los ciclistas.

Magnetic cement enables dynamic wireless charging


Bavaria’s startup Magment has patented a new material with the properties of cement that at the same time can create a magnetic field in order to enable both static and dynamic charging of electric vehicles. First projects are underway.

Magment strebt induktives Laden während der Fahrt an


Ein interessantes Konzept zum induktiven Laden von Elektrofahrzeugen während der Fahrt präsentiert die in Unterhaching bei München ansässige Firma Magment mit ihrer gleichnamigen patentierten Materialtechnologie.



缩短交期和电感组件的配置时间是各商家提高其产品竞争力非常重要的一个环节。太阳能逆变器的主要元件包括电抗器和由金属磁粉芯 / 铁氧体磁芯 / 非晶金属磁粉芯制成的线型逆变器。越来越高的功率等级和开关频率对电感产品的选择和可用性方面也提出了更高的要求

Magnetizable Concrete Paves The Way For EV Charging And Low-Cost Power Magnetics


MAGMENT magnetizable concrete materials—either cement- or asphalt-based—are a patented technology displaying the mechanical properties of conventional concretes due to the embedding of ferrite particles used as magnetic aggregates. These ferrite particles are obtained from recycled material from the ferrite industry and from the rapidly growing amount of electronic waste. It is worth noting that, unlike lithium, all chemical elements needed to produce this material (iron, manganese, zinc, calcium and aluminum) belong to the most abundant metals on Earth.

Magnetic concrete could make wireless EV charging affordable


With a material that is rather unusual in electrical engineering, start-up company Magment plans to revolutionize the inductive charging of electric vehicles: Magnetizable concrete. Above all, this would make automatic charging by means of coils in the roadway affordable. The technology is already being tested in several research projects.







China plant Solar-Autobahn mit integrierter Ladelösung


China will bis 2022 in der Provinz Zhejiang einen 161 Kilometer langen, sechsspurigen Solar-Highway mit Technik für autonomes Fahren und Lademöglichkeiten für Elektroautos errichten. Künftig sollen E-Autos dort auch während der Fahrt induktiv geladen werden können.

Fertig gestellt werden soll der „intelligente“ Autobahnabschnitt zwischen den beiden Städten Hangzhou und Ningbo vor den 2022 in Hangzhou stattfindenden Panasiatischen Spielen, einem Sportwettbewerb asiatischer Staaten mit olympischem Charakter.

Accelerating the Autonomous Electric Transportation Revolution: Wireless Opportunity Charging and Advanced Battery Management Systems

Vehicular emissions across the globe are rising rapidly and account for a significant portion of global warming and climate change. Electric vehicles (EVs) provide a cleaner alternative to conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles even when the electrical grid is predominantly powered by fossil fuels. The move towards clean and renewable energy further strengthens the case for EVs, and the EV revolution is happening faster than previous market predictions. In Dec. 2016, a major EV manufacturer, Nissan, reported that Leaf® owners worldwide achieved the milestone of 3 billion kilometers, saving nearly 500 million kilograms of CO2 emissions [1]. There is an impending reduction in the production of ICE vehicles in the world market owing to adoption of EVs. The shift towards transportation electrification needs to be hassle free for the public such that it is more convincible, affordable, and quick. However, the major hurdles to the broad acceptance of EVs are high battery cost, limited driving range, and need for a faster charge time.

This 18-mile stretch of Georgia highway is a living laboratory for clean energy


It’s not often that captains of industry have epiphanies about climate change. So it was remarkable when, after reading The Ecology of Commerce in 1994, carpet manufacturer Ray Anderson set out to clean up his petroleum-intensive operation and succeeded in cutting net carbon emissions by more than 80 percent. Dubbed “America’s Greenest CEO,” Anderson dedicated his twilight years to proving that businesses could turn a profit without “digging up the earth and converting it to pollution.”

5 Wireless Charging Myths Exploded By WiTricity CEO


January 28th, 2018 by Steve Hanley

Alex Gruzen, the CEO of WiTricity, is as passionate about wireless charging as Elon Musk is about electric cars. From his point of view, the two go together like cake and ice cream. (Editor’s note: Mmm, cake and ice cream.) Just as there are people who don’t understand electric cars, there are people who don’t understand wireless charging. They think it’s slow, inefficient, and possibly dangerous. Recently, Gruzen agreed to talk with CleanTechnicaabout those myths and misconceptions in the hopes that some “straight from the shoulder” information would change the minds of those who doubt wireless charging is for real.

Gruzen began by saying, “With countries like France, India, and China planning to ban the internal combustion engine in the foreseeable future, and more and more automakers like Volvo and GM committing to broad selections of electric vehicles, the time when electric vehicles go mainstream is near at hand.

“But with Tesla and Toyota Prius as their main frame of reference, most Americans don’t fully understand how electric cars can enhance their daily lives. They are concerned about how driving an EV will alter their ownership experience, especially when it comes to keeping the battery in their car charged.

“Just as WiFi freed our computers from the need to be connected to an internet cable and Bluetooth freed our headphones from our cell phones, wireless charging will free our EVs from the process of plugging the car in. Breaking old habits and creating new ones is often a source of anxiety. Learning to live with an electric car and learning new charging protocols at the same time could be a drag on EV adoption.


“Wireless power has the potential to dramatically shape the future of electric mobility and it is happening sooner than most people imagine. In fact, the first EV built with wireless charging as standard equipment will hit the market this year.”

Schweiz: Selbtsfahrende E-Busse fahren jetzt im öffentlichen Straßenverkehr


Nach einer zweijährigen Testphase war es am vergangenen Donnerstag dann endlich soweit. In der Schweiz fahren nun die ersten beiden autonomen Elektro-Busse im öffentlichen Straßenverkehr und befördern Fahrgäste. Die Fahrzeuge stammen vom Schweizer Verkehrsbetrieb PostAuto und sind auf bisher feste Linien und bestimmte Zonen limitiert. Die Ausnahmegenehmigung für den Test im öffentlichen Straßenverkehr ist zunächst bis Herbst 2017 gültig.
