  • Stornoway hydrogen vehicle trial report

    Resource

    This report details the trial of a hydrogen powered light goods vehicle conducted in Stornoway, Outer Hebrides, Scotland in July-August 2010. The trial involved the use of a demonstration Ford Transit converted by Revolve Technologies to a bi-fuel petrol/hydrogen internal combustion engine (HICE) vehicle operated by Royal Mail on two delivery routes out of its Stornoway delivery office over a six week period. Hydrogen fuel was provided by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) via its H2seed facility. H2seed generates renewable hydrogen by feeding electricity generated by a biogas engine to an electrolyser. The trial sought to examine the reliability, ease of fuelling and usability of the vehicle and fuelling regime, and the suitability of the HICE vehicle in fleet operation.

  • Electric drive vehicle characteristics study

    Resource

    This paper presents analysis of an electric vehicle deployment focusing on the smart ed, including laboratory and in use road and user perception analysis. The study found consistent range performance across laboratory drive cycles, but differing real world performance, where range and duty alter significantly.

  • Efficiency of electric vehicle rapid charging systems

    Resource

    This paper describes the results of an efficiency study on the performance of a rapid charge unit which has recently been installed at the MetroCentre retail complex in Gateshead. This is the first publically available device of its type in the UK. The study focuses on the efficiency and power draw of the charging process at different starting States of Charge (SoC) and compares the performance of the rapid charger with that of conventional slow charging using a Mitsubishi i_MiEV.
