This report primarily concentrates on the largest prospect - road vehicles that get at least 10% of their motive power from solar bodywork, mainly cars. There is coverage of solar agribots, trucks, buses, trains, aircraft, boats and more. We reveal how some never need plugging in but others have trivial amounts of solar power. Learn how retrofit solar wrap is being welcomed as is the prospect of Toyota/ Sharp bodywork making three times as much electricity so you never plug in. Understand the huge opportunity on battery electric vehicles with startling new vehicles from Lightyear, Sono Motors, Tesla and others and the equally large opportunity on hybrids with Hyundai widely committed. See why they should include the great need on the new 48V mild and full hybrid cars peaking at a massive 20+ million 48V vehicles yearly in 12 years from now.
This report is intended to be useful to all in the vehicle value chain from consultants, researchers and materials suppliers to product and system integrators, operators and facilities managers. Uniquely we look at the full commercial picture worldwide including benchmarking best practice in adjacent activities such as electric vehicles, minor uses of photovoltaics in vehicles and energy harvesting of other types. The emphasis is on creating successful business and ongoing benefits to society not solar racers built by students other than where these have wider lessons.
Chapter 1 Executive Summary and Conclusions is sufficient in itself for those in a hurry as it has the basics, primary conclusions, technology roadmap and forecasts. Chapter 2 Introduction gives more depth and historical trends in context. Chapter 3 is the longest as it covers on-road solar cars worldwide for commercial sale. Chapter 4 reveals Solar Buses, Trucks and Precursors, Chapter 5 Solar for Trains, Chapter 6 analyses "Photovoltaics: The Big Picture" with allied applications, technologies and trends leveraging this one. Chapter 7 is Solar Agribots, Aircraft and Boats, many of these already being energy independent - no plugging in. Some are energy positive. The report ends with a thorough look at Future Enabling Technologies such as bodywork that will combine solar and supercapacitor storage with progress on both. No other up to date report on these topics both takes into account the effect of COVID-19 and has this full picture. For example, by popular request, we now forecast 20 years ahead. Uniquely, IDTechEx has tracked and advised on it for 20 years. Only IDTechEx uses PhD level multilingual analysts travelling intensively and interviewing in local languages. As experts in the subject we carry out consultancy and lecture globally and we obtain privileged access to information.
