  1. Berkeley TSRC study quantifies VMT and GHG benefits of car2go car-sharing in North AmericaRead the original story

    Monday Jul 25 | Green Car Congress

    Now, a study conducted by the University of California Berkeley's Transportation Sustainability Research Center concludes that car2go's carsharing model can complement existing mass transit options; reduces the overall number of vehicles on the road; and ultimately improves mobility in densely-populated urban areas. Among the study's conclusions were that, on balance, car2go changes VMT by -6% to -16% per car2go household; GHG emissions change by -4% to -18% per car2go household.

    Feb 11, 2016 | Green Car Congress

    The California Energy Commission is awarding the University of California, Berkeley $1.5 million to develop an advanced smart charging technology that maintains plug-in electric vehicle consumer needs while reducing charging loads, to achieve electricity grid benefits. The project will focus on controlling the charging of PEVs in residential and small commercial settings using a novel and flexible open-source, open-software architecture charge communication and control platform.


  5. ANGP gets exclusive license to UTRC technology for conformable natural gas vehicle storage tanksRead the original story

    Feb 4, 2016 | Green Car Congress

    Adsorbed Natural Gas Products announced an exclusive licensing agreement with United Technologies Research Center allowing ANGP to use UTRC's patent-pending technology - developed with support from DOE's ARPA-E - to develop and produce the first commercially viable conformable adsorbent-based low pressure natural gas storage tank for motor vehicles. The license applies to non-metal composite tanks containing activated carbon adsorbents at operating pressures of up to 1,000 psi.


  6. IU scientists create self-assembling biocatalyst for the production...Read the original story

    Jan 4, 2016 | Green Car Congress

    Scientists at Indiana University have created a highly efficient self-assembling biomaterial that catalyzes the formation of hydrogen. A modified hydrogenase enzyme that gains strength from being protected within the protein shell of a bacterial virus, this new material is 150 times more efficient than the unaltered form of the enzyme.

  9. New flexible MOF for enhanced adsorbed natural gas storage on vehiclesRead the original story

    Oct 27, 2015 | Green Car Congress

    An international team of researchers led by a group at the University of California, Berkeley has developed a flexible metal-organic framework material for enhanced adsorption and desorption of natural gas . The material, described in a paper in the journal Nature , could bolster the development of on-board adsorbed natural gas systems that don't require the high pressures or cold temperatures of today's compressed or liquefied natural gas vehicles.
