Deutsche Bank has been testing the use of electric cars since the beginning of April 2011 as part of a pilot project at its new Deutsche Bank towers in Frankfurt. A fleet of small electric-powered cars, which has been growing constantly, is available for business trips within the city. A special feature of this e-car pilot project is that the vehicles are charged at electric charging points in the building's underground car park with electricity supplied by the building itself. Electricity is generated by the elevators depending on their direction and load, and this is sufficient to charge the cars. If the pilot project is successful, Deutsche Bank will start running electric cars at other locations as well.
Germany could be soon at the real forefront of the Electric Cars revolution:
"Lithium Jolt: DBM Energy: This Breakthrough Will Soon Slash EV Prices Drastically. Electric Cars' roll out in a mass market fashion used to be at the mercy of Oil prices, government incentives and consumer devotion to pay the top buck for being Green. This situation can be changing right now by start up from Germany and its wonder Lithium battery.
News about DBM Energy and its technological break through in Lithium batteries technology made its way, finally, into the sale pitches of stock promoters. We do not endorse the company mentioned in that report in any way - you know what we like here on this blog already - but this article is an important indication that this technology news are filtering through.
If the previous claims about the cost of this KOLIBRI Lithium Batteries will be confirmed we have a real breakthrough in Lithium batteries technology which will make Electric Cars reality in a very short period of time. In this case German government and company is very right to hold this technology so close to the chest and it explains that we have only scarce information in the North America. Lithium Rush will be next with the new headlines with DBM Energy hitting the wires."
