Volkswagen Group (Volkswagen AG)
We examine the past, present and future position of VW Group in the EV business using various sources including pronouncements by those at the top of the company in mid 2019 and test some of its assumptions.
Conductive Inks: Power Electronics, EMI Shielding, In-Mold Electronics
Every year IDTechEx Research publishes an article that reflects the latest trends in the conductive ink industry. These articles are based on IDTechEx Research's report "Conductive Ink Markets 2019-2029: Forecasts, Technologies, Players", which is the result of ongoing research over the past eight years. This year IDTechEx will give an update on multiple less mature trends which offer high growth potential.
A Remarkable Year for Stationary Energy Storage
2018 was a remarkable year for stationary energy storage. Governments and policymakers around the world are beginning to wake up to the value batteries can offer to the grid, both in terms of flexibility and decarbonisation. Over 6GWh was deployed, and market leaders such as Tesla expect to double their deployments for 2019.
Lightyear One vs Tesla Model 3
New solar car assessed: needs, uniques, competition.
Fuel cell EVs fit in where?
Time was when fuel cells were to be in every bike then every motorbike then they were pushed back to ever larger vehicles. The IDTechEx take is that fuel cells are most likely to find their place where batteries cannot give the range and where few of the expensive charging station systems are needed meaning fleets and trains.
New League Table of Largest EV Manufacturers Calculated June 2019
Increasingly those seeking the greatest economy of scale in EVs are making wider and wider ranges of vehicles for new applications. Read on to find out more.
Robot circulatory system powers possibilities
Untethered robots suffer from a stamina problem. A possible solution: a circulating liquid - "robot blood" - to store energy and power its applications for sophisticated, long-duration tasks.
Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation
It is easy to say that, although small electric aircraft are at last selling, they are a negligible part of the overall aircraft market. Mistake. They will work up from the bottom to be mainstream. Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce know this, but many others are sleeping through the future. Some of the successes are from small companies.
Plug-in Hybrids Questioned
IDTechEx now believes that there may be no hybrid cars sold after 2030 other than 48V MHEV continuing for a few years due to their exceptionally low cost. Read on to find out more.
Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?
Plug-in Hybrids: More Models but No Future Says IDTechEx Research

Pure electric Killing Plug in Hybrids
This is a more informative version of an article we have published recently. Read on to find out more about how Car manufacturers are issuing a flood of plug-in hybrid cars.
How We Shall Cope with a Shortage of Lithium-ion Batteries
At some stage in the next ten year, there is likely to be a shortage of lithium-ion batteries. Included in this article are possible reasons and proposed solutions.
Electric Car Gloom Yet Forecasts Increased
It is a bit surreal. There is far more negative press comment about pure electric cars than positive yet most analysts, including IDTechEx, have revised their forecasts upwards. In this article, you will find some of the forecasts of others expressed as the number in use.
Electric Light Aircraft Order Rush: Deeply Significant
Not long ago it was just dreams. Small internal-combustion aircraft provide taxi services, serve the declining market for private flying and a few other needs. Some are over 30 years old because total cost of ownership is an issue. Designing electric replacements seemed like entering a dust bowl.

Local Pollution Much More Dangerous than Realised
Global warming has something like a consensus on action, with tightening carbon dioxide emissions laws to 2030, read on to find out IDTechEx take on it.
New Electric Vehicle Motors Grab Sales
Huge companies make traction motors for electric vehicles. After all, as the IDTechEx report, "Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles: Land, Water, Air 2019-2029" details, every EV has at least one traction motor and increasingly they have many, including one electric aircraft with no less than 36.
Electric Vehicles Go High Voltage
