Electric propulsion can utilize existing fuel far better, and can use far more different energy sources.


  2008 the countdown for electric mobility runs


A revolution is coming as significant as the change from horse cabs to cars. How can we accelerate the countdown to electric mobility?

Diesel engine in the future
Analyses about the future of the Diesel engine in the beackground of new technology and optimizing the fuel supplay after Peak Oil.


Loses the fuel cell against the Methanol engine
There is a dfifference between sending some huamns to the moon or to develop a car for a sales woman with 1000.-EUR minimum wage. A cost anaylsis of the fuel cell.


Higher city toll for gasoline guzzlers
It is the luxury class where all fundamental new developments at cars had been the first time set in and later gradual found the way to small cars.


Prices at fuels turn over
From 1988 to 2018 in only 30 years is a complete turn over of the prices at fuels for cars. Numbers based on German prices and solar radiation.


Load speed
How many km range can be per hour load time or refueling put in the batteries or in the tanks? An important criteria for reference number vehicles.


Eat my dirt
Mobility with ICE internal combustion engines is something very aggressive. You have to be under all circumstances faster than the others, otherwise You will eat their dirt.




Analysis lead price
Analysts always claim to hear the gras growing, but they pretend not to hear 60 million electric scooters in China. The true reason for the high lead price.


Coal liquification
Compare of coal liquification for the production of liquid fuels vs making electric power out of coal and the usage in vehicles with electric propulsion.


Biofuel furtherance
US$ 15 billion had been sent out 2007 in the OECD for the furtherance of biofuels. Just after military expenses the most ridiculous and dangerous expenses.
