  • Dude, Where’s My Solar Powered Car? Sean Christmann Email: mech@craftymind.com Twitter: @seanalltogether Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • There’s a lot of myths floating around about cars these days. “Forget water powered cars, I’m getting a solar powered car!” Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • It’s true that solar cars exist, but the laws of physics are against us = 2 hp ~27% solar efficiency = 190 hp would require over 2500% solar efficiency Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • “Well what if I buy power from renewable resources like solar and wind farms” “Then I can drive an electric car that’s technically ‘solar powered’” Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • The truth is, unless you own one of these... ...then congratulations, you already drive a “solar powered” car. Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Don’t believe me? Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • In fact, almost all energy we use today is a by-product of solar radiation Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • “Yeah, but we can’t wait a million years for more oil to be created” Thats true... Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • ...but don’t assume that electricity is the only “renewable” way of storing energy Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • So what fuel will be in your next car when petroleum runs out? Answering that question is problematic, because we built our entire economy on the best fuel for the job - petroleum (gas, diesel) Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • People don’t want to lose the comforts ๏ engineered around petroleum I want a lot of horsepower - I want to drive 300 miles between refueling - Refueling should be fast - Fuel tanks shouldn’t take up much room - Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Fuel Contenders: Batteries Cheap and no exhaust waste ๏ Electric motors are very efficient at turning ๏ electricity into motion. Energy density is horrible. In the Tesla car, 200 ๏ miles of battery power weigh 1000 lbs and take up alot of space Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Fuel Contenders: Hydrogen Electrolysis should allow for clean creation, ๏ fuel-cells cleanly power cars Should be fast to refuel ๏ Low energy density, compression requires ๏ cooling Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Fuel Contenders: Alcohols (Ethanol & Long Chain Hydrocarbons) High energy density; would need a 15 gallon ๏ tank to match a 10 gallon gas tank Existing technology and infrastructure is ready ๏ to support it Generates ๏ pollution as exhaust from being burned Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Anything else? General rule of thumb is, the more dense ๏ and complex the fuel, the less you can create of it 1 Acre Biodiesel / ?? Electricity Hydrogen Alcohols Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • What’s the bottom line on these different fuels? Which one is most practical? Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Is hydrogen worth the investment? Hydrogen only solves one problem with ๏ batteries (refuel rate), but introduces a more complex problem of building an entirely new infrastructure. Hydrogen is more suitable for low ๏ temperature environments Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Can we make enough alcohol? Ethanol production might compete with ๏ food production, can we spare the land and addition water? Algae might prove to be the holy grail for ๏ generating alcohols Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • Are batteries good enough? Batteries need to reach 5-10 minute ๏ recharges. Right now you might get stuck at a station in the middle of nowhere for 2 hours. Densities need to improve to increase ๏ distance and give people back their trunks Thursday, March 12, 2009
  • My predictions for the future Manufactures should ramp up ๏ on alcohol powered cars Alcohol is our natural transition ๏ beyond petroleum. Brazil has already made the transition. Electric cars will expand when ๏ battery advances allow for “roadtrip ready” cars. Thursday, March 12, 2009
