Chevy Volt Reviews | Real Customer Review of the Chevy Volt
http://www.peltierchevrolettyler.com Recent 2011 Chevy Volt purchaser John
Cobb gives his Chevy Volt Review and comments about his new electric car.
Besides the fuel economy of the Chevy Volt John enjoys the quietness of the
vehicle and the room the Volt offers to carry things like bikes. John is an
avid cyclist and inventor so he appreciates the design and technology in
the Chevy Volt. His other car happens to be a Porsche 911 that is the
complete opposite of his new Chevy Volt.

Free Energy - How to power your Electric Car: Fuelless Generator - On board charger
How to power your electric car.
Here's the solution to the worldwide energy problem. All future Electric
Vehicles will be equipped with this device and be able to sell electricity
to the "charging stations". There are no moving parts in this self-starting
device. To the engineers en designers: where have you been all the time?
Leaders / politicians: how limited is your horizon? Even If you don't
understand how, you can see it works.
An ALTERNATIVE solution to the energy problem in general and already being
in commercialisation, is the EBM Power Plant; working without permanent
magnets, so you can't say it will run out of magnetic flux.
Below: a text from Professor L.I. Szabó.
"The self-reliant EBM plant uses its own self-generated electromagnetic
fuel. This technology is non-nuclear, 100 % environment friendly with zero
"We are routinely producing with our EBM Power Plants several kilowatts
well over unity without any pollution and emissions whatsoever!"
"One of these 10-megawatt units will heat 280 houses and air-condition
them, plus you have cheap power, guaranteed at six cents."
"All that EBM needs to start it is a small motor or engine that produces
torque (2.5% - 5% of rated output, depending on how quickly you want to
start it up). If you're out where there's no power at all, you go to a
local farmer and get a John Deere, hook on to it and start it up.
Initially, it rotates the EBM drive unit, and it achieves operating speed.
Its unique geometry allows extra shaft power to be produced as the rotor is
rotated through the magnetic field. The shaft power is converted to
electricity via a synchronous generator attached to the shaft of the EBM
unit. A small quantity of the electricity is then fed back into the EBM
unit to continue the rotation. The excess power produced can then be used
or sold for profit. In other words, when we sell a 10-megawatt unit, it is
actually producing 15-megawatts -- it will be the 15-megawatt generator. It
will take between one and ten percent of the rated capacity (depending on
size) back to drive the EBM motor, giving you 10 megawatts to feed into the
grid 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The idea is to keep the flux

Chris Emerson - One Year Driving the Nissan Leaf
My good friend Chris Emerson has driven a Nissan Leaf for the last year,
and we spent an afternoon chatting about his experiences driving an
electric vehicle. Friendly warning that this is a long video, but Chris is
a pretty insightful guy. If you've been curious about EV's in general (and
the Leaf specifically) this is a pretty in-depth look at what owning one in
Los Angeles is like.

i made some battery packs from the 18650 cells in old laptop batteries. i
lose focus in this video but i think its good enough to upload.
i will be making another video focusing on using them for my electric bike.

Turning used electric car batteries into energy storage devices
ABB's Mietek Glinkowski is interviewed at the ABB Smart Grid Center of
Excellence in Raleigh, North Carolina USA
GM and ABB demonstrate Chevrolet Volt Battery Reuse -- world's first use of
electric vehicle batteries for homes
Partnership with ABB results in prototype back-up power storage unit
Energy storage project readies for testing on the power grid
San Francisco, Nov. 15, 2012 -- General Motors and ABB today showed the
next stage in battery reuse, the repackaging of five used Chevrolet Volt
batteries into a modular unit capable of providing two hours of electricity
needed by three to five average American homes.
The uninterruptable power supply and grid power balancing system was
demonstrated during GM's Electrification Experience. The prototype unit
provided 25 kW of power and 50 kWh of energy to power all the support
lighting and audiovisual equipment in an "off-grid" structure used for the
"GM's battery development extends throughout the entire life of the
battery, including secondary use," said Pablo Valencia, GM senior manager
of battery lifecycle management. "In many cases, when an EV battery has
reached the end of its life in an automotive application, only 30 percent
or less of its life has been used. This leaves a tremendous amount of life
that can be applied to other applications like powering a structure before
the battery is recycled."
GM and ABB last year demonstrated how a Chevrolet Volt battery pack could
be used to collect energy and feed it back to the grid and deliver
supplemental power to homes or businesses.
During today's demonstration, the energy storage system was run in a
"remote power back-up" mode where 100 percent of the power for the facility
came from Volt batteries through ABB's Energy Storage Inverter system. A
similar application could one day be used to power a group of homes or
small commercial buildings during a power outage, allow for storage of
power during inexpensive periods for use during expensive peak demand, or
help make up for gaps in solar, wind or other renewable power generation.
These functions, along with frequency regulation on electric distribution
systems, could someday be used by utilities to reduce cost to customers and
improve the quality of power delivery. These applications are referred to
as community energy storage to distinguish them from substation-size energy
"We showed today how fast this research concept is turning into reality,"
said Allen Burchett, ABB's senior vice president for Business Development
in North America. "The ABB-GM Volt battery system is the world's first use
of car batteries as possible back-up power for homes and other commercial
uses. We will be installing it on the grid soon to complete the technical
evaluation, and this will tell us all what smart grid applications are
possible, like back-up power, reducing energy cost, strengthening
utilities' distribution systems and storing surplus renewable energy."
ABB's research center in Raleigh, N.C., conducted the research and
development, and ABB's Medium Voltage business unit in Lake Mary, Fla., is
managing the proof-of-concept testing, market research and product
development. As the world's largest EV fast-charging company and leader in
smart grid and energy storage, ABB works with other auto companies, battery
manufacturers and utilities to help make electric power and industrial
operations more productive and efficient.
GM is focused on assuring battery systems used in future Chevrolet, Buick,
GMC and Cadillac vehicles provide environmental and societal benefits
beyond their use in the vehicle. Long before a battery is recycled,
secondary use provides the opportunity to fully utilize the battery
GM is dedicated to waste reduction throughout its operations, and its
worldwide manufacturing facilities combined recycle 90 percent of the waste
they generate. Ensuring that batteries are part of reducing the
environmental impact of its vehicles and operations is part of the
company's roadmap to sustainability.
