  • Common goals of improving fuel efficiency and fuel quality require a global perspective

    Chief executives of the world’s leading heavy-duty engine and vehicle manufacturing companies met this week in New Orleans to discuss challenges facing the industry.  The discussions focused on opportunities to address climate change and global energy security.  The executives agreed that addressing those important topics would require developing effective fuel efficiency measurement ...

  • New vans more fuel efficient

    The average van sold in 2013 was around 4 % more efficient than the previous year, so the new vans fleet has already met the collective carbon emissions target ahead of the 2017 deadline, preliminary data shows. Similar findings were recently published for new cars, which have also met their target in advance. There were 1.2 million new vans registered in 2013, with average emissions of 173.3 g ...

  • SECA fuel cell technology proves successful in US Navy`s proof-of-concept testing

    Two technologies developed under the US Department of Energy's Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) fuel cell program recently passed successful proof-of-concept tests by the US Navy's Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division located in Newport, Rhode Island. The tests mark a breakthrough for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC)-based power systems and reflect the potential of SOFC technology for ...
