Electric cars are non polluting assets for a cleaner planet

 

 

Who does not like a good Motor Show? Events such as these are an opportunity to glimpse into the future as motor makers around the world polish up their latest thinking to persuade you to buy a new car or truck with their badge on the hood. Concept cars are some of the most tantalizing being not for sale, but what might be for sale in a few years ..... Oh joy!

 

 

FOR CARS WE NEED ROADS

As you browse through the rows of gleaming automobiles take a moment to think that without roads there is no point to owning a horseless carriage even if it is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen - and it makes your heart race more than a pin up of Charlize Theron or Henry Cavill. Hold that thought for a moment and then think about the fact that in the UK petrol car sales will cease in 2040.

 

What then about our roads. Will they be up to scratch for low carbon motoring and more importantly, will there be handy charge points so that your gleaming show car is not stranded on a roadside in the middle of nowhere. Obviously, this is not your problem because you don't make National Policy or decide the Budget. But it might be nice is there was a plan of action - where at the moment there is nothing we can see that blows up our skirts (as of Feb 2018), though Patrick McLoughlin has in the past shown that he cares about roads and transport - hence there is hope - the present Conservative Government are struggling to persuade local authorities to get into climate change top gear.

INTEGRATION - The Cleaner Ocean Foundation is of the opinion that road building should not be divorced from other considerations during the planning and execution stages of electrifying our roads. In the modern world where climate change is high on international agendas there should be provision for sufficient power supplies to enable the use of low carbon vehicles, such as electric trucks and cars, in sufficient number that petrol and diesel cars and trucks become a thing of the past. One way of doing this is for all new roads to be planned with an integrated approach to align with the National Grid of the country concerned.

 

Flexible tarmac roads typically last 30 years is well made, service tunnels should be incorporated on all new builds to prevent roads works that delay traffic. Service access conduits should run alongside all new roads (water, electricity, telecommunications, etc) to keep traffic moving efficiently. Planning ahead for servicing is sustainable planning. Most British roads were obsolete the moment they were built.

 

The picture above may look quaint but the road should have been wider with at least one service conduit running parallel. Roads like this in the country are the subject of constant works and repairs to subsidence. The road tax on 25,000,000 million registered vehicles even if only 50% is collected would be al least £1.25 billion pounds in revenue that should be spent on road building and management, granted that EVs are exempt, hence revenues will gradually reduce. There will have to be a sliding scale as EVs become more popular where they are charged to top up a road fund. Especially when electric or hybrid super trucks come online that create substantially more road wear.

 

 

 

  

 

SMARTER SERVICE STATIONS - This concept EV forecourt offers between 7.68 - 15.36MWh of solar assisted energy storage with a capacity of between 48-96 battery cartridges on a continuous charge cycle. Five of these stations (76.8MW) could recharge (refuel) up to 10 trucks or cars a minute at peak times.

 

During rush hour, up to 300 vehicles might be serviced in one hour if drivers act diligently - for example there is no need to get out of a vehicle at all using automated billing - but this would require registered users. The truck shown in these AutoCAD drawings is 3.55 wide x 3.5 high x 7.7M long (8 x 11.5 x 25 feet). This station could accommodate trucks 4.46M (14.77 feet) high as shown, or with a raised roof, almost any truck currently on the market - though longer thinner trucks are more fuel efficient.

 

 

 

During an eight hour day 2,400 trucks might be serviced using five forecourts on the assumption that we start every morning with 96 x 5 = 480 slow charged cartridges from off-peak supplies. The same forecourt might be used to service fuel-cell cars powered by stabilized hydrogen. One size fits all. The secret is to KISS the design (Keep It Simple Silly). There are only 28* moving parts in this station, not including the gearbox for the solar powered drive motor. This is possible because with this system the vehicles load the cartridges themselves.
