Na-Ion bAttery Demonstration for Electric Storage (NAIADES)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

Wide scale implementation of renewable energy will require growth in production of inexpensive, efficient energy storage systems. The extension of battery technology to large-scale storage will become necessary as intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and wave become more prevalent and integrated into electrical grid. Lithium-ion battery appears as quite mature for this applica ...

Joint Operation for Ultra Low Emission Shipping (JOULES)

Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: May 31, 2017,

Reducing emissions from shipping has increasingly become a challenge over the last years, both as a counter measure against global climate change and to protect local environments and population from waste, gas emissions and noise.This challenge has been documented both in policy papers, like the Europe 2020 initiative or the Transport White Paper, and in rules and regulations issued by IMO as wel ...

"Li-ion batteries become a reality in the future vehicles, although they do not fulfil completely the demands of consumers. In this respect batteries with higher energy density are required. Lithium technology utilizing sulphur as a cathode is one of the optimal choices since it offers the possibility of achieving high-energy, long-life storage batteries with a potential low price. At present, the ...

"For many transport modes, energy reduction strategies can be effectively formulated at the level of the vehicle or vessel. New technologies can therefore be introduced to a vehicle and the direct energy savings can be readily quantified. However, such approach is not suitable to be employed for urban rail, where it is not sufficient to consider only the energy performance of vehicles; the energy ...

TEchnologies and scenarios For Low Emissions Shipping (TEFLES)

Start date: Feb 1, 2011, End date: Jan 31, 2014,

Reduction of emissions in shipping is currently driven by new regulations and impact on wealth and climate change, while traffic steadily grows at up to 6% rates yearly in spite of economic recession. Ships on port approach, maneuvering up to mooring and on loading and unloading, also affect the local population. TEFLES addresses both sea and at port emissions scenarios by developing after treatme ...
