When the University’s senior leaders were looking for a service-related department to consider alternative energy vehicles,Central Storesanswered the call and has added a hybrid service vehicle to its fleet.
This hybrid van will be used to transport Central Stores staff around both on and off campus, primarily using electric power. The van will support Central Stores’ services, including freight and mail pickup and delivery, bulk mailing, shipping, receiving, office/departmental moves, event setup, and other initiatives.
Batteries with triple the range of those that currently power electric vehicles could be on the horizon after researchers at the University of Waterloo in central Ontario made a significant breakthrough in the technology.
A new process discovered there uses negative electrodes made of lithium metal, a material with the potential to dramatically increase battery storage capacity.
New research at the University of Waterloo could lead to the development of batteries that triple the range of electric vehicles.
The breakthrough involves the use of negative electrodes made of lithium metal, a material with the potential to dramatically increase battery storage capacity.
“This will mean cheap, safe, long-lasting batteries that give people much more range in their electric vehicles,” said Quanquan Pang, who led the research while he was a PhD candidate in chemistry at Waterloo.
Researchers from Waterloo Engineering shared the spotlight yesterday as Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne officially announced Stratford as the home of a testing zone for the development of self-driving vehicles.
The University of Waterloo will host innovators from around the world who have revolutionized business through disruptive technology for its fifth annual Waterloo Innovation Summit on September 14 and 15. With this year's conference theme 'Hacking the Future', influential speakers from a wide range of sectors will focus on discussions in foward-thinking and interactive conversations.
