NEW for 2014 - The TOMCAT Ecostar BE4 (bare frame) DC50 city sports car concept featuring the Bluebird™ instant recharging system that is the enabling bridge between battery electric vehicles of today and the hydrogen fuel cell EVs of the future - Hydrogen Economy (HE) Ready. You wouldn't buy a TV that was not HD and 3D ready, so why buy a car that is not HE ready. Future proofed EV technology from Bluebird Marine System Ltd. Expressions of interest for collaborative consortium building are invited - aiming for a Horizon 2020 bid from 2015 >>.
(HISTORIC) CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST JUNE 2012 No: 68454
Promotion of electric vehicle technologies
EOIs will be accepted from industry, industrial associations, small and medium sized enterprises, municipalities and municipal utilities, R&D organizations, technology developers, and not-for-profit organizations.
The CCEMC is interested in receiving proposals in the following areas:
* Wind (both utility-scale and micro generation)
* Geothermal energy
* Hydro power (both run-of-river and micro generation)
* Solar energy (thermal, photovoltaic and concentrated)
* Energy from biomass (combustion, anaerobic digestion and gasification)
* Bioenergy (biofuels, biogas, biosludge, landfill gas, etc.)
* Energy storage systems for use on renewable power sources
THE PROPOSAL: ‘ECOSTAR UNIVERSAL EV SERVICE STATION (SS) PROTOTYPE’
RANGE ANXIETY - The blend of technology outlined above promises an innovative energy efficient vehicle and support infrastructure necessary that fulfills the aspirations of the Canadian authorities and member states of the European Union.
CLEAN MOTORING - Electric vehicles incorporating a means of instant refuelling could make road transport clean and practical by eliminating the limited ranges of fixed battery EVs, which are perceived as less practical by the at present long parked-up recharge times.
BATTERY CARTRIDGE CHARGING - The battery cartridge charging stations shall comply with the EU legislation and international standards, such as IEC 61000. Alternatively, battery cartridges may be recharged via a charger of the onboard type in any country within the EU and US. For road cars, a smart-card Pay As You Drive (PAYD) system may be developed for forecourt style commercial battery cartridge exchanges.
ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC) – The Ecostar Universal SS will be designed to meet with or exceed the tolerable limits set for electromagnetic disturbances as defined in EU legislation. and shall take into account additional issues not covered totally or partially by the latter, such as those related to connections to the power grid.
(1) Scheduled start-up date for the project: ASAP 2013
(2) The duration of the design phase is 12 months..
(3) The duration of the prototype construction is 12 months.
