The Berlin-produced Tesla Model Y is going to be a revolution in automotive body engineering, according to Elon Musk. He just noted this in response to Tesmanian’s Eva Fox, who wrote an article covering Volvo reverse engineering a Model Y in Sweden
(Eindhoven University of Technology) Perovskiet solar cells are at the center of much recent solar research. The material is cheap and almost as efficient as silicon. However, perovskite cells have a love-hate-relationship with the sun. The light they need to generate electricity, also impairs the quality of the cells, limiting efficiency and stability over time. Research at the Eindhoven University of Technology and universities in China and the US now sheds new light on the causes of this degradation.
(University of Manchester) Biotechnology’s game-changing role as a catalyst to reboot a greener economy is the focus of a summit hosted by The University of Manchester. George Freeman MP, former-Life Sciences minister, will join a debate featuring leading experts from Manchester Institute of Biotechnology plus national policy-makers on the green growth agenda. The event will be run from 3pm on Wednesday, July 15, and register here: https://www.newstatesman.com/2020/06/new-statesman-and-mib-webinar-biotechnology-catalyst-sustainable-future
Volkswagen, as the title notes, is using “Computer Vision” to increase manufacturing efficiency at its factories. What is Computer Vision? Here’s how Volkswagen summarizes it
Tesla Giga Berlin Surprises, Exploring The Lordstown Endurance Pickup, Tons Of EV News — CleanTech News Show #15
This is the 15th broadcast of CleanTechnica’s weekly news show. This week’s show covers the new Lordstown Endurance, Tesla Giga Berlin plan changes (which I think we’re the only ones to dig into so carefully and with enough context), the end of Byton, three new Citroën EVs, and more. Here are the stories covered in this week’s show
Solar energy researchers are shining their scientific spotlight on materials with a crystal structure discovered nearly two centuries ago.
Tesla has published its Q2 2020 production and delivery numbers. (Look’s like CleanTechnica’s Frugal Moogal nailed it.) We’ll have more on this later, but here are Tesla’s production and delivery figures for Q2
