MTEE at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit 2017 in London

Since 2008, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit (BNEF) has served as a forum for the discussion of energy issues by bringing together old and new key players who are involved in the energy industry. With nearly 2000 key decision makers from the business, finance and policy communities being present at the BNEF every year, it contributes to setting the agenda of new energy policies and to shape the general opinion on new energy topics.

We are therefore proud to be represented at the BNEF 2017. Our General Manager of the Turbo Division, Bas Bonnier, will participate in a panel debate on Tuesday the 19th of September with the topic “Automotive futures and diverging energy assumptions”. Together with spokespeople from companies such as BP oil mobility, Renault EV business unit and Chargepoint, Bas Bonnier will discuss the future of automotive and what role battery technology advances, range extenders and public charging infrastructure will play in the transition towards electrification.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe Introduces RANGE+

Turbine Technology to Boost Affordability, Driving Distance, and Environmental Appeal of BEVs

Frankfurt/Almere, September 12, 2017 – Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. (MTEE), a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group company, introduces the RANGE+, a power generator capable of rapidly charging the battery of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) while driving. It allows for fast recharging, increased driving distance and independence from recharging infrastructure.

With environmental norms expected to grow more stringent, MTEE, along with its partner Prodrive Technologies, has designed and developed the RANGE+ prototype as a range extender for BEVs focused on affordability and practicality.

“The RANGE+ solves many of the issues which are currently holding back consumers from purchasing BEVs,” said Bas Bonnier, General Manager Turbocharger Division, MTEE. “In back-up situations, the RANGE+ increases the driving range by charging the battery as you drive. And thanks to its multi fuel capability, a vehicle can be refueled in only few minutes,” he continued.

The RANGE+ prototype is based on proven turbocharger and gas turbine technology; it uses a gas turbine to drive a generator that charges the battery. In addition, its inherent high power-to-weight ratio and low number of parts allows compact, lightweight and cost-effective designs. Furthermore, BEV’s will be more affordable to manufacture and have a further reduced environmental footprint because, with the RANGE+, a smaller battery pack will be sufficient to power the vehicle.

Advanced combustion combined with the right matched turbocharger technology, leads to a low combustion temperature, and thereby low emissions. The future series production version of the RANGE+ will be designed with low NOx emissions and to comply with the SULEV 2025 (California) emission standard.

The target specification for the produced RANGE+ series is a 31% overall efficiency, which will generate 30kWe, sufficient to drive a passenger vehicle at 130km/h speed continuously.

Turbocharging has downsized the best engines of today

For the first time in 23 years there is no V8 engine on the list of Ward’s Auto’s 10 best engines, writes Ward’s auto; http://wardsauto.com/2017/seven-turbos-three-hybrids-share-wards-10-best-engines-honors.

Due to the progress of turbocharging technology, many 6 cylinder engines create enough horsepower and torque to substitute the 8 cylinder engines, writes Ward’s auto, which have slowly decreased in the past years. The same trend can be seen from 6 to 4 cylinder engines, and 4 cylinder engines are also dominating the market as well as Ward’s list of best engines. In fact, besides from 2 hybrid engines on the list, all other 8 best awarded engines are turbocharged, including 1 hybrid.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. expect this trend to only continue further in the coming future, where more hybrid engines also will become turbocharged.
