Producing synthetic kerosene, also called e-fuel, will be a huge economic activity in the next decades. One day, it will be cheaper to make fuel than to pump and refine oil, Maarten Steinbuch says.
To improve safety for cyclists, we don't need a helmet obligation, Carlo van de Weijer says in his column. More and wider bicycle paths would be a better solution.
This year, the Dutch king is celebrating his birthday in the city where creativity and technical ingenuity go hand in hand, Eindhoven. Read about how the city is making it a digital celebration.
By 2030, 100% of new cars sold in the Netherlands must be electric. According to Maarten Steinbuch, it can be done faster.
A whole fleet of electric airplanes, good charging infrastructure and a lightning-fast process for passengers at the airport. CEO of Eindhoven Airport, Roel Hellemons, thinks it's a great idea.
Elon Musk's achievements contribute a lot to a better mobile future. But that won't be a future with lots of robotaxis.
The 'massless' battery is designed to be not only a source of energy but also a solid structural material. The electrical components are cleverly incorporated into the other materials.
The traffic jams and full trains will probably return. But now that we have all learned that things can easily be done in a much smarter way, we, as a society, should stop thinking that's a bad thing.
The advantages of eVTOLs are short travel times because of the high speeds and the absence of traffic jams, and also low fuel costs because of the use of batteries for electric propulsion.
Soon, we will no longer refine fuel from crude oil but produce it from clean electricity in places where enough cheap clean energy can be generated.
"Especially for those applications where battery weight is a strong limiting factor, there's a future for hydrogen powder or paste."
Each week we follow up on the best-read read story on IO in this section. This week: Will we be charging electric trucks on induction roads in the future?
"You will have to be very sure that electric flying will not succeed to invest now in any other form of medium distance transport."
There will be a further substantial increase in battery capacity, which will also reduce weight. The cost will decrease, and the lifetime will increase.
"For years, pedestrian bottlenecks have been insufficiently addressed by politicians. In urban areas, in particular, the capacity of the sidewalk and footpath has reached its limit."
"The Netherlands is well prepared for this transition - thanks in part to the many fine new companies that provide chargers and fast-charging stations."
There seems to be increasing support for making car costs more variable, the much talked about road pricing. Or, more nicely put: paying according to […]
"The solid-state battery is the holy grail that can give a decisive boost to both the energy transition, and the mobility transition."
"The old top-down traffic management has changed into a self-managing system of well-informed individuals."
