    QUICK NEWS, November 17: BIG TEST FOR SOLAR ROADS KICKS OFF; FORD TURNS TO NEW ENERGY; ADVANCED BATTERY SUPPLY CHAIN TO TRIPLE

    BIG TEST FOR SOLAR ROADS KICKS OFF Solar-Energy Roadway Test Begins in the Netherlands

    November 11, 2014 (AP via NY Times)

    “SolaRoad, a project that tests roadways as a way to collect solar energy, [just started] in the Netherlands with about 230 feet of a bike path in the town of Krommenie, near Amsterdam. The path is built of Lego-like solar panels set in concrete and protected by heavy glass…[E]ach square meter of road generated 50 to 70 kilowatt-hours of energy per year, or enough for the initial strip to supply power to one or two Dutch households. The test is scheduled to run three years and will cost 3 million euros ($3.7 million)…[D]espite the high costs of developing the first SolaRoad, successor projects may be more profitable as solar cells grow cheaper and more efficient[according to Sten de Wit of the engineering firm TNO]…” click here for more

    FORD TURNS TO NEW ENERGY Exclusive Pilot Program With Wind Energy Corporation Brings Clean Energy To Select Ford Dealers

    November 10, 2014 (Ford Motor Co.)

    “…[Wind Energy Corporation] will invest nearly $750,000 to install wind sail and solar panel systems at four Ford dealerships; each Windy System™ will help power dealership facilities, electric vehicle charging stations and lot lighting…[Each] Windy System is expected to deliver 20,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, enough to power two average-sized homes for a year or charge [a] Ford Focus Electric 870 times, [or a] Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi 2,600 times each…Under a pilot program exclusive to [Ford Motor Company], Wind Energy will install wind sail and solar panel systems at [Dana Ford Lincoln, Staten Island, New York, Tom Holzer Ford, Farmington Hills, Michigan, The Ford Store, Morgan Hill, California, and Fiesta Ford, Indio, California]…Each Windy System™ includes…an integrated 7-kilowatt solar array…. Participating dealers are electric vehicle-certified and were selected by Ford and Wind Energy Corporation for both their exceptional commitment…” click here for more

    ADVANCED BATTERY SUPPLY CHAIN TO TRIPLE Materials for Advanced Batteries; Cathodes, Anodes, Electrolytes, Separators, and Other Materials for Advanced Batteries: Supply Chain Logistics and Market Sizing and Forecasts

    4Q 2014 (Navigant Research)

    “…[A] new wave of advanced battery chemistries is starting to significantly penetrate the stationary, portable, and transportation markets. These advanced battery chemistries include lithium ion (Li-ion), redox flow, sodium metal halide, and advanced carbon lead-acid (ACLA)…The expected growth of the supply chain is even more stunning…Total materials shipments are anticipated to increase from 304,516 MT in 2014 to 846,891 MT in 2023. The vast majority of those materials will likely be going into Li-ion batteries, which are expected to have a leading market share in all three of the major application areas: stationary, portable devices, and transportation…[O]ther chemistries will be making vast leaps in growth over the next 10 years, principally vanadium oxide and iron chromium flow batteries. According to Navigant Research, the primary component materials for advanced batteries are expected to increase from a $7.3 billion market in 2014 into a $19.3 billion market in 2023…” click here for more
