The electric vehicle industry - land, water and air - is rapidly rising to become a huge market of over $533 billion by 2025. Some, such as solar lake, run entirely on harvested energy. Some recycle energy as with regenerative braking of cars, buses and military vehicles harvesting kinetic energy. Others use different forms of harvesting either to charge the traction batteries or to drive autonomous devices as we progress to the wireless vehicle. In some cases, harvesting is making completely new forms of electric vehicle possible such as "glider" autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that stay at sea for years and surface to gain electricity from both wave power and sunshine whenever necessary. Indeed, multiple forms of energy harvesting on one vehicle is becoming much more common, from cars to superyachts.
This report is the first to provide technical and market analysis of the rapidly growing market for energy harvesting in electric vehicles - land, water and air - with forecasts for adoption over the next decade.
The report gives a wealth of examples of energy harvesting in action on electric vehicles for land, on/under water and in the air. It also covers electric vehicle charging stations with energy harvesting. Forecasts for adoption in 2015 and 2025 are backed by ten year sales forecasts for many types of electric vehicles by - number, unit value and market value. A critical explanation of all the technologies is given, including the following energy sources:
The good and bad aspects of these are discussed and an assessment of likely future progress is given. The work of a large number of suppliers and adopters is assessed. Trends are summarised in diagrams, tables and text so it is easy to compare essential information.
