*(Diesel car and SUV markets only - does not include light duty pickup trucks or vans.)

            “Sustained and mostly double-digit increases in sales each month over a four year period prove that U.S. consumers are embracing the benefits of clean diesel technology and its proven, high fuel efficiency, great driving performance, and long-term value,” said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum. 

            “The consistently positive sales trends for clean diesel are particularly noteworthy since they have occurred over a recessionary economic period when diesel fuel prices have trended upward, and consumers have many more fuel efficient vehicle choices than ever before.  Today, the clean diesel choices include 27 cars and SUVs, nine vans and 10 pickup trucks.  We expect that number to nearly double in the next 18 months, and we expect that more models in more brands will only generate higher sales in the future.

“While diesel cars and pickup trucks make up only three percent of the overall U.S. vehicle market, most analysts predict continued growth in the U.S., with many believing the diesel market will double by 2018.”

            The Hybrid Cars.com/Baum and Associates sales information follows data compiled by IHS Automotive for the Diesel Technology Forum released last month that showed clean diesel vehicle registrations (cars, SUVS, vans and pickups) had increased by 30 percent from 2010 through 2013.

Diesels Have 30% Better Fuel Efficiency Than Gasoline Vehicles
Schaeffer said Americans are seeking more fuel efficient cars and are learning that clean diesel vehicles are about 30 percent more fuel efficient that gasoline equivalents. In addition, he said the new federal fuel efficiency standards that will require a 54.5 mpg average by 2025 will also boost clean diesel auto sales, as auto manufacturers introduce more diesels in the U.S. to help meet these standards.

To see a list of all clean diesel cars and pickups available in the U.S., a list of all the new diesels coming to the U.S. market, and fuel efficiency data go here:

Clean Diesel Cars Garner 5 of the Top 10 Rankings
On AAA’s 2014 Green Car Guide

Green Car Guide Reviewed 83 Hybrids, Electrics, CNG, Clean Diesels
& Partial Zero Emissions Vehicles

            Washington, D.C. – Half of the top 10 highest scoring green cars were clean diesel vehicles in the newly released Green Car Guide compiled by the Automobile Association of America (AAA).  The top 10 of AAA’s Green Car list included five clean diesels, three electrics and two hybrids.

            “The field of green cars this year is the most competitive ever, so the fact that clean diesels ran away with 5 of the top 10 ratings is a great validation that clean diesel cars are really a great choice for consumers looking to make greener transportation choices” said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum (http://www.dieselforum.org/).

            Two electric vehicles – the 2013 Tesla S P85 and 2012 Toyota RAV4 EV - topped AAA’s list and were followed by 4 Audi TDI clean diesels (A6, A7, A8 and Q5) and the Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTec clean diesel among the top 10 highest scoring vehicles.

This year’s AAA Green Car Guide reviewed 83 hybrids, electric cars, CNG-powered cars, clean diesels and partial zero emissions vehicles. The annual study was conducted by the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Automotive Research Center (ARC).  The green cars tested by the ARC are evaluated on the basis of 13 categories: including emissions, fuel economy, acceleration, handling, and other factors.   The scores for the categories were totaled, and the cars were ranked from high to low.

Clean Diesels Are 30% More Fuel Efficient Than Gasoline Vehicles

“Today’s car buyer is confronted with the largest choice of fuels and technologies ever.  The fact that clean diesels are rated so highly reflects the total package that they provide - proven high fuel efficiency, low emissions, excellent driving performance, and no-compromises on vehicle types and choices.  As Americans focus on getting the highest possible miles-per-gallon, today’s diesels post driving ranges of 500 to 800 miles on a single tank of fuel while typically beating their EPA mileage estimates – not falling short of them like other technologies,” Schaeffer said.

“Automakers are introducing more diesel-powered models in the U.S. each year and consumers are learning about increased fuel efficiency of clean diesels.  Today consumers have 44 choices of cars, pick-up trucks, SUVs and vans with diesel engine options, and we expect that number to increase significantly in the next two years.”

What energy storage will power the iWatch and future smart watches?
By Franco Gonzalez, Technology Analyst, IDTechEx
The emerging trend in multifunctional portable devices, such as the smartphone, has caused the decline of those that previously performed single functions. This has been the case with simple digital cameras and now wrist watches.
So the recent Apple rumours of the possible launch of an iWatch is a natural step forward, as stated last year in IDTechEx's report Batteries & Supercapacitors in Consumer Electronics 2013-2023: Forecasts, Opportunities, Innovation . There is a trend among young people to use their smartphones to tell the time, when this used to be the single function of the humble wrist watch. Indeed, market figures don't lie - in 2005 the growth of the global traditional wrist watch market was around 6%, now the industry is abruptly declining at 20% yearly. It is only the luxury watch industry that is growing at a steady rate of about 5% yearly, and this should be sustained in the following ten years as emerging economies create new rich segments of the population, these people will be eager to have their first fine Swiss time piece on their wrists, the drive behind this is not the need to have digital multifunctionality but to have a status symbol.
However for the rest of the population, with the increasing influence of social networks and mobile multifunctionality, a smart watch will be a better fit, especially for youngsters. The smart watch is just one of the multifunctionality trends in consumer electronics, as can be seen in Table 1 below.
Table 1. Multifunctionality Trends in Consumer Electronics
Source: IDTechEx & various

The consumer electronics industry has changed dramatically in the past few years. Portable devices are increasingly becoming multifunctional, and not only phones which currently have many purposes (e.g. making calls, sending SMS, internet navigation, email, video playback) but cameras and other devices as well.
For example, we will see smart watches that play music and can help you manage your smartphone, or android powered cameras with applications and Wi-Fi internet connectivity. At the same time, smartphones are taking over more functions. For example, we could think of a smartphone that becomes a semi-professional camera when adding interchangeable lenses, just as the rumour of the iWatch began with an Apple patent showing this device, there is an Apple patent of this sort of iPhone that suggests the use of interchangeable lenses, see figure 1 below.
Figure 1. A patent by Apple
Source: news.cnet.com 

This trend in power demand terms is translated into frequent peak power demands from lithium and other types of batteries. The same applies to wireless sensors, which require power pulses for performing their functions. In figure 2 below we show the power demand profile for different operation modes of three different smartphones.
Figure 2. Different power profiles for different smartphone uses

Supercapacitors fit well into the emerging energy storage landscape
As in any other battery, energy and power will play against each other; increasing one will lead to the loss of the other. Accordingly, the capacity of lithium batteries (energy content) is reduced if we extract the energy quickly. This means that if we require high power from the battery we will extract less total energy than if we require low power (see figure 3).
Figure 3. Specific power vs specific energy

Source: Venkat Srinivasan
As seen in Figure 1 the multifunctionality trend in smart portable devices requires different power profiles depending on the function, some of these high power demands are required more often. These variable power demands mean less available total energy extracted from the battery (and accordingly, the battery running out quicker). In the consumer electronic industry this was not a problem in the past, since the mobile phone power demand profile was more or less constant and low. This was the case because mobile phones were only used to perform one function (i.e. make calls).
In consequence, lithium battery technology capabilities are being challenged by the modern multifunctional portable devices, which increasingly require higher performance in terms of power density. Whilst current research and development pathways aim for the emergence of a new generation of high energy density technologies, alternative energy storage technologies are challenging the dominance of lithium batteries.
This is the case with supercapacitors, which are an emerging energy storage technology whose characteristics make them strong candidates for satisfying those specific functions where lithium batteries underperform.
Interestingly, supercapacitors can deliver a considerable amount of energy at high power (see Figure 3). These characteristics make them suitable for supplying high power in multifunctional devices where current batteries can't provide it without reducing their total energy capacity (see Table 1 above).
On the other hand, batteries and supercapacitors are becoming thinner, flexible and now paintable!
Having thinner consumer electronics is another no-brainer, however how thin can they get? Currently the thinnest is the Finder with a thickness of just 6.6 mm. It uses a battery of just 4 mm (See Figure 4 below). Printing batteries is the next technology evolution for the manufacturing of the required energy storage solution for future consumer electronics. But it does not just make them thinner, they can be flexible too.
Figure 4. Mobile phone trend

Companies such as Front Edge Technologies have developed solutions such as the NanoEnergy® which are thinner than a piece of paper and when embedded in micro devices such as smart cards and portable sensors, act as an autonomous power source enabling new functions which greatly add to their value. They are flexible as well, see figure below.
Figure 6. Flexible energy storage

Finally batteries can be paintable, such as the ones currently in development by Rice University!

“We built Geostellar to make the process of going solar as safe, available and affordable as booking travel, watching videos or socializing with friends online,” said Geostellar CEO David Levine. “Our installation and financing partners are best of breed, and committed to delivering the most value to the homeowner through their solar energy systems. We are thrilled to expand our service to Boston.”

“Real Goods Solar is pleased to be working with Geostellar on the launch of its innovative technology platform,” said Kam Mofid, CEO of Real Goods Solar.  "As one of the nation’s leading solar companies with many years of commitment to 100% clean renewable solar energy, we are looking forward to this partnership with Geostellar to help new customers realize the wonderful economic and environmental benefits of going solar”.  

Geostellar’s advanced 3D geo-mapping models sunlight down to the square meter - taking into account the slope and orientation of the roof facets, as well as shadows from trees and nearby buildings - over the course of a full year to determine the energy-production potential of every property. Geostellar then applies that data to determine the economic benefits of solar for each property based on the system costs, electricity rates, incentives and usage patterns.

Geostellar’s innovative service has earned several awards including selection for the Global Cleantech 100 and the GCCA’s 2012 Later Stage Award Best of Solar.
