Auto Shows Scheuer wants to drive the use of hydrogen in cars
No change of staff on the train - the head of the railway should continue
More trains, more journeys: The federal government wants to continue expanding its range of services at Deutsche Bahn, worth billions, despite the slump in passenger numbers. And the current top management should continue on this course. © Michael Kappeler / dpa Richard Lutz, CEO of Deutsche Bahn AG. contracts of several board members are to be extended, including that of railway boss Richard Lutz.
Federal Minister of Transport Andreas Scheuer wants to drive the use of hydrogen in cars.
for a new innovation and technology center Hydrogen technology (ITZ) are three locations in the narrower selection - these are Chemnitz (Saxony), Pfeffenhausen (Bavaria) and Duisburg (North Rhine-Westphalia).
For these projects, a feasibility study should be created in the coming months. The location of the new center beckons a promotion in the three-digit million sector according to scrub.
truck manufacturers Daimler and Volvo found fuel cell company
Cellcentric is to test fuel cell trucks from 2023. The partners have also terminated series production. © Daimler The hydrogen truck ready for series production: That is the goal of the newly founded company Cellcentric. As early as November , the two heavyweights had agreed to take this step. Cellcentric emerged from the Daimler Group, in which it bundled all fuel cell activities - at that time under the name "Daimler Truck Fuel Cell".
Specifically, the project in Chemnitz is based on the development of added value based on fuel cells for vehicle applications. In Pfeffenhausen is a focus on liquid hydrogen, in Duisburg it is about innovation development or testing and testing fuel cell-based drive systems for road, rail, water and air traffic. Overall, it was given 15 applications according to scrub. For a project in Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Stade, an investigation should be promoted with a focus on aviation and shipping.
Scheuer reaffirmed its position not to put on the vehicle drives of the future alone on battery-powered electric cars - but also on the hydrogen drive via fuel cell or via so-called E-Fuels. Scheuer spoke of technology-reliance. The Ministry of Transport can promote projects on the national hydrogen strategy with a total of 1.6 billion euros.
2017 Acura MDX Hybrid: What You Need to Know
There’s a lot to like about the 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid, including its lithe handling and swift acceleration. However, its poor predicted reliability rating and frustrating infotainment controls pull it down near the bottom of our hybrid and electric SUV rankings. The 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid is ranked: #10 in 2017 Hybrid SUVs #52 in Used Hybrid SUVs under $30K Is the 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid a Good Used SUV? Despite its ranking, the 2017 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid is a decent vehicle. With good acceleration and sporty handling, this Acura proves that a hybrid SUV can be fun to drive. It comes with plenty of standard features too.
to criticism at high cost of hydrogen said scouring: "Hydrogen is not the champagne of the energy transition, but the table water, we work." The "Economically" Veronika Grimm said it is important to develop a variety of technologies. It does not go to the question battery or fuel cell. What initially inefficient bills can have long-term benefits.
The auto industry has been researching for a long time at the fuel cell. There is a use of e-fuels - these are synthetic fuels produced by means of electricity from water and carbon dioxide. This electricity should have been obtained from renewable energies from the ecological point of view. With e-fuels, internal combustion engines could be used for a long time - just not with fossil fuels as before, but with alternative fuels. Many small and medium suppliers in Germany with thousands of jobs hang on the burner. Germany strives to build hydrogen production capacities in other countries, for example, energy partnerships were closed with Chile.
of the Head of Transport Policy at the Environmental Association of the Federal Association, Jens Hilgenberg, said: "Especially in the transport sector, no costly misinvesting may now be made. With regard to their energy efficiency, battery vehicles are clearly in the advantage over vehicles with fuel cell drive or even burners that drive with hydrogen-based E-Fuels. » In traffic, hydrogen should only be used there where more efficient technologies do not apply - that would not be displaceable on the rail extending long-haul flights and parts of shipping. "An effective climate protection strategy must focus on the most efficient technique, so that hydrogen is clearly leaving in the car.»
Who's loving the semiconductor chip shortage? Car dealerships .
With inventory so tight, car buyers are ready to pony up and pay sticker price.Reuters reported on the state of the industry on Monday and profiled a couple of dealerships caught in the middle of eager car buyers and too little inventory. It's a simple story of supply and demand: Automakers can't build enough new vehicles, due to chip shortages, and car buyers want them. In turn, many buyers have no problem paying sticker price and foregoing the wheeling and dealing that can knock a couple grand off the MSRP. Dealers get to keep even more cash in their pockets and buyers get their new car. Record profits ensue.
