  10. 10. Wired magazine “Laugh at High Gas Prices With a 235-MPG VW” What can you do with a “normal” car http://www.wired.com/autopia/2008/07/laugh-at-high-g/ The car has anti-lock brakes, stability control and airbags. $30-40k.
  11. 11. What is the cheap solution? Kia Rio $11,495 31 mpg http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/latest/cheap-fuel-efficient-cars-471207#ixzz0hKwVPNVb Smart ForTwo $11,990 36 mpg Toyota Yaris $12,355 32 mpg . Hyundai Accent $13,645 31 mpg
  12. 12. Toyota Prius $22,800 50 mpg .
  13. 13. Compare to $12,800 32 mpg car. $4.00 gasoline, About 225,000 miles to the break even point $6.00 gasoline, About 150,000 miles to the break even point $8.00 gasoline, About 110,000 miles to the break even point Toyota Prius $22,800 50 mpg .
  14. 14. How do we compare costs of Gasoline Cars vs. Other Fuels? GGE Gallon of Gasoline Equivalent
  15. 15. 1 gallon gasoline = 115,000 BTU = 33 kWh (6.1 lbs) 1 gge 0.88 gallon diesel (6.0 lbs) 1 gge 1.50 gallon ethanol (9.9 lbs) 1 gge 127 cubic feet (STP) natural gas (5.7 lbs, 950 gal) 1 gge 9 kWh available electricity (130 lbs, 8 gal) * 1 gge 178 cubic feet (STP) Hydrogen (1 lb, 1330 gal) ** 1 gge GGE – Gallon of Gasoline Equivalence When used in a car * Electric cars ~ 0.3 kWh / mile, compare to 30 mpg petrol car 1 gallon petrol = 9 kWh ** with 60% eff. Fuel cell, (357 cubic feet for internal combustion)
  16. 16. http://image.motortrend.com/f/10795722/112_0808_10z+2009_honda_civic+side_view.jpg 13.2 gallons @ 30 mpg ~ 400 miles range 13.2 gallons gasoline ~ 100 lbs 20 gallons ethanol ~ 150 lbs 55 gallons compressed NG ~ 250 lbs (mostly tank weight) http://www.ewsews.com/cngprices.html 105 gallons Lithium Batteries ~ 2,000 lbs 250 gallons Prius Batteries ~ 14,000 lbs

  19. 19. EPA standards mandate a series of Tiers for diesel emissions We are now in Tier 3, Tier 4 is coming To meet these standards, exhaust systems are VERY expensive You have an extra tank of urea solution for injection into exhaust Worth it for big trucks Costs too much for cars Gasoline is more cost effective in reducing petroleum use http://www.ucsusa.org/assets/documents/clean_vehicles/dieseldilemma_exsum.pdf Diesel: Good for trucks. Bad for cars

  26. 26. Clean Energy - NYS DOT 23008 Chrisler Avenue Exit Rotterdam, NY 12303 Phone: 781-685-4857 Fuel: Compressed Natural Gas Access: Public - card key at all times   Office of General Services - NYS McCarty Avenue and Route 9 W Southern Boulevard Albany, NY 12209 Phone: 518-473-6594 8 Fuel: Compressed Natural Gas Access: Public - card key at all times Can I pump Natural Gas Locally? Yes! Albany & Schenectady
  27. 27. The pump is a (minor) engineering problem Phill used 10 ¢ electricity / GGE Phill went bankrupt Phill ~$1,000 / year to maintain ~ $0.50-$1.00 / GGE Can I pump Natural Gas at home? Maybe…
  28. 28. Assume 100% NG vehicle penetration NG refueled from the home line, 8pm – 6am, Assume 33 miles average use per day (12,000 mi/yr), 4.5 ft 3 / mile About 150 ft 3 NG / day for the car Average US house = 260 ft 3 NG / day Yes - we add 50-100% NG volume Will Home Refueling of NG cars Require a new pipelines?
  29. 29. SynFuel No new pipelines Use existing Gas Stations No change to cars Can also use Coal, Biomass Many $$$ SynFuel plants NG for SynFuel or NG cars? NG Cars No SynFuel plants Overnight Home Refueling Cars cost more Cars don’t go as far Need new gas lines everywhere Refit 100,000 gas stations My Opinion: SynFuels will win

  32. 32. 50 mpg, well engineered, affordable This is a young/mature technology This uses a 110 lb NiMH battery Replacement cost $3,000 275 Volts, 1.3 kWh 1.1 pint gasoline, 3-4 miles travel (100% depletion) All energy used is from Gasoline Full Hybrids - Prius
  33. 33. To go 40 miles (PHEV40), need ~15x energy storage 1600 lb battery costing $25,000 - $35,000 Therefore PHEV requires a different kind of battery That battery is the Lithium Ion battery PRIUS  PHEV, using same battery

  35. 35. Like a Hybrid with a BIG battery Plug it in overnight to charge the battery Run as far as you can on battery Then start using the gasoline engine as a normal hybrid PHEV20 can go 20 miles on electric only Infinite gas mileage on days you go less than 20 miles If you go 40 miles every day, you get 100 mpg Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Basics
  36. 36. Your gas mileage gets better with bigger batteries But Your electric bill goes up as gasoline costs go down PHEV has enormous potential gas mileage http://www.epa.gov/oppt/nano/p2docs/casestudy3_chiang.pdf
  37. 37. PHEV 40, with 90% of charging done 8pm – 6am, 100% penetration At 300 Wh / mile, 12 kWh of energy for a full recharge 1.2 kW charge rate required, well below the 2-3 kW peak power demand per house. Efficient use of off peak power, wind power Inefficient use of solar power Raises the base load, possibly lowers the peaking load. NO not if we charge at night Will Home Recharging of PHEVs Require a new powerlines?
  38. 38. RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES – The Electricity Cost Compare to 30 mpg car Electric cars ~ 0.3 kWh / mile 30 miles @ 0.3 kWh / mile = 9 kWh 1 Gallon Gasoline = 9 kWh 9 kWh @ $0.15 = $1.35 $1.35 electricity = 1 Gallon Gasoline
  39. 39. RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES – The Hidden Cost Electric cars ~ 0.3 kWh / mile, compare to 30 mpg 1 gallon petrol = 9 kWh @ $0.15 = $1.35 / gge cost of electricity Battery Life: 400–1000 cycles (think laptop batteries) New batteries ~$1 / Wh A 1 kWh battery is about $1,000 Battery lasts 1,000 cycles, that’s $1 / kWh stored 1 gallon petrol = 9kWh stored 9 kWh * $1 / kWh stored = $9.00 / gge wear on the battery!!!!! Our cost = $1.35 electricity + $9.00 wear = $10.35 Today’s batteries cost us $10.35 / GGE
  40. 40. RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES – The Hidden Cost Electric cars ~ 0.3 kWh / mile, compare to 30 mpg 1 gallon petrol = 9 kWh @ $0.15 = $1.35 / gge cost of electricity Battery Life: 400–1000 deep discharges (think laptop batteries) New batteries ~$1 / Wh. A 1 kWh battery is about $1,000 If the battery lasts 1,000 cycles, that’s $1 / kWh stored 1 gallon petrol = 9kWh @ $1.00 = $9.00 / gge wear on the battery!!!!! Our cost = $10.35 / gge Cut battery cost by 50% Increase battery life by 5 Total cost becomes $2.35 / GGE What do we need?

  45. 45. Prius+ generator motor engine combiner wheels electronics battery generator motor engine wheels electronics battery Chevy Volt
  46. 46. Chevy plans on a 70 hp engine What is the smallest engine that would work? How much engine does the Volt need? 50 hp allows indefinite climb on a 6% grade at 68 mph 70 hp http://images.thetruthaboutcars.com/2008/05/ev-performance-simulation.pdf
  47. 47. The Volt doesn’t need a rotating engine Linear Generators Microturbines

  50. 50. OK to run short errands No good for long distances Refill gasoline or NG tanks in ~5 minutes Recharge batteries in 30 minutes to many hours Fast charging damages batteries Battery Only Cars
  51. 51. Not likely: Diesel Mild Hybrids Battery Only Fuel Cell CONCLUSIONS
  52. 52. Slightly reduced Oil supply Slightly increased NG supply Small Gasoline Cars Hybrids PHEV CONCLUSIONS
  53. 53. Greatly reduced Oil supply Greatly increased NG supply Natural Gas cars PHEV Synfuel CONCLUSIONS
  54. 54. Greatly reduced Oil supply Greatly increased Electric supply PHEV Synfuel CONCLUSIONS
  55. 55. Economic Depression Small Gasoline Cars CONCLUSIONS
  56. 56. Big CO 2 Taxes Small gasoline cars PHEV Biofuels CONCLUSIONS
  57. 57. Poor Lithium Battery Progress Hybrids Natural Gas Cars CONCLUSIONS
  58. 58. Slow decrease in Oil supply Slow increase in NG supply Coal power  NG power CO 2 Sequestration Fails Anthro Climate Change Accepted Lithium Battery Progress Economic NG Synfuels Hybrids PHEV Synfuels replace Corn Ethanol My Best Guess next 20 years
  59. 59. Big decrease in Oil supply Big increase in NG supply Widespread SynFuels/BioFuels Big CO 2 taxes PHEV like VOLT My Best Guess 20-50 years
