Revolutionary access to low cost energy storage

Aceleron will be displaying their battery energy storage module which is made from 100% recycled materials including repurposed batteries.

This feature demonstrates how much Aceleron are able to extract value from end-of-life materials which in turns demonstrates how much more energy savings/carbon saving can be made.

Hydrogen-powered electric vehicle by Riversimple

Water is the only bi-product expelled from the exhaust of UK manufacturer Riversimple's hydrogen-powered electric vehicle.

Riversimple's Rasa prototype, which is reportedly capable of travelling 300 miles on a full tank of hydrogen, was designed to be as ecologically friendly as possible.

The vehicle incorporates an interior trim made from recycled plastic bottles and lightweight materials such as a carbon-composite chassis.

REAP Bikes

UK made carbon bikes, born from a never ending desire for speed.  Use of composite materials and partnered  with Bentley, Gibbs and Boeing); aerodynamics.

Libralato Hybrid Engine

The Libralato hybrid engine is a completely new kind of rotary engine with a new thermodynamic cycle. The engine was first concept tested in 2011, followed by more rigorous proof of concept testing and analysis in 2014, which indicated that its revolutionary 9-phase cycle is effective and is capable of exceptionally high efficiency and low emissions. The Libralato engine is predicted to be the most efficient compact engine in the world; at least as efficient as a diesel engine (c.40%) using gasoline but half the size and weight.
