BOSTON, April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial and commercial electric vehicles will be a similar market to cars but innovating faster and frequently more profitable for all in the value chain. The most important sector is buses, where innovation often comes before cars because they are less price sensitive. A report by IDTechEx Research, Electric Buses 2017-2027, finds that the market for medium and large hybrid and pure electric buses will be over $165 billion in 2027. In this report IDTechEx show how the Chinese are now dominating the league table, buying the most buses and innovating rapidly already creating the lowest cost base by far. The report examines the different power trains and the move from chassis to integrated manufacture often with no chassis and later structural electronics as bodywork will come. Technological roadmaps show the rapid innovation coming in the next decade and regional and technology sales are forecasted to 2027. Well over 100 hybrid and pure electric bus manufacturers are appraised and regional trends revealed. Based on extensive interviews, conferences and searches this unique report is the only up-to-date in-depth appraisal of the issues and trends. It includes a detailed look at fuel cell buses over nearly three decades, identifying why further delays are risking the window of opportunity for them closing as the greener, more efficient pure electric buses prove fit for prime time and over a quarter of a million e-buses will be purchased in 2026 due to both legal push and market pull.

BOSTON, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The IDTechEx Show! in Berlin, Germany on 10-11 May is Europe's most important event for those involved in technology scouting and product innovation, bringing together emerging technologies with global brands.      (Logo: http://phot...


This is an industry about to change radically. For example, in mining, over 90% of the world's mines are open cast. They are often in remote places up to 4000 meters above sea level, where shipping diesel can cost more than buying it. Consequently, there is now a move to have 350 kW giant haul trucks working the floor and separately the top of the mine with electric rail-veyors lifting the ore from bottom to top. In an all-electric solution new pollution laws can be met, image improved and money saved, the electricity coming from the mine's own wind turbines and photovoltaics. Battery swapping and fast charging of those batteries means 350 kWh batteries suffice - big but no larger than those in other EV sectors. The report from IDTechEx Research explains all this and gives detailed forecasts, comparisons and assessments. It shows how mines will electrify much more but only after the current bust period of the boom-and-bust that characterises this industry. It shows why the ubiquitous tractor in agriculture will, at last, be electric in volume quantities by 2027 and how new forms of vehicle design are coming. Benchmarking from the 46 categories of electric vehicle that IDTechEx forecasts, the report explains what new technologies will arrive and why. Supercapacitors, new power components, greater modularisation and integration will transform this industry. The report draws on interviews and results of many recent conferences on these sectors.

IDTechEx predicts that the RFB market will be worth $4bn by 2027 and will include all stationary storage applications, from residential to C&I to grid-scale systems. With ambitious projects already underway RFBs have the potential to become a mainstream technology that will compete directly with lithium-ion and sodium-sulphur, currently the two leading chemistries in the stationary storage market. In the report IDTechEx has analysed the five main RFB chemistries: Other technologies that were the unsuccessful subject of commercialisation in the past are also analysed, to give a full technical overview of what is out there and which chemistries will come out as winners in this arms race. The results show that one battery chemistry in particular will lead in terms of megawatt-hours deployed; however, there is room for competition given recent announcements from the major representatives of competing chemistries. Strong trans-pacific partnerships are being formed as a result of China's government push into renewables integration and cleantech innovation. Alternative applications like automotive are also included in the report, with a historic background on previous efforts and an outlook on what some companies are trying to achieve. By purchasing this report, users will have access to valuable insights into 19 of the largest players in the redox flow battery industry, as well as a techno-economic analysis of the available chemistries. IDTechEx has outlined how the Li-ion industry will be affected by the emergence of a battery technology that can deliver a long cycle life and solve many safety issues like flammability and short circuits.

Session to focus on advances in freeform geometry that enable topology optimization for CAD BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - May 8, 2017) - Frustum Inc., a pioneer in functional generative design and topology optimization software, today announced that its CEO and Founder, Jesse Coors-Blankenship, will be presenting at IDTechEx Show in Berlin on Thursday, May 11th. The session will illustrate advanced freeform geometry methods and how they enable topology optimization to be more fluid, faster to design and support more accurate printing through additive manufacturing. Coors-Blankenship's presentation will also demonstrate this process for designers, providing examples of how this approach supports concurrent engineering principles. "Design and manufacturing are undergoing a renaissance, which can be felt across just about every industry today. Airplane parts are being 3D printed, saving fuel costs and improving production. Designers are breaking free of clunky, angular design restraints to create more fluid, stronger and lighter components," said Dr. Jon Harrop, director, IDTechEx. "Our mission is to bridge the innovation gap between leading technologies and the companies that need them, so it's exciting to offer our attendees a look at the innovations driving this renaissance." What:   Coors-Blankenship will discuss how technological advances in CAD integrated freeform geometry allowed for topology optimization to be introduced to the designer. Integrating traditional technologies and topology optimization in Frustum's cloud-based software, Generate, benefits additive manufacturing by eliminating uncertainties that would normally be involved in these designs. About Frustum: Frustum is a software company leading the transformation of CAD from iterative design to generative design. Frustum's software solutions, available via its breakthrough, cloud-based optimization platform Generate, enable the design of high performing and complex parts. Industrial designers and engineers discover varied topology configurations quickly to deliver novel, manufacture-ready parts and products with optimal balance between performance, structural strength and weight. Frustum's next generation freeform geometry kernel is the only solution that allows designers to blend topology optimization and traditional CAD data resulting in fully printable designs that eliminate the need and costs of part redesign. An early participant in the Siemens' Frontier Program, Frustum was recognized for its ability to guide mechanical engineers towards optimal shapes of 3D metal parts.
