Audi to harness power of the

Audi plans to harness Sea wind power to create sources of energy as part of its to produce cars that are over their lifetime.

windmills will produce to feed the all-electric e-tron that Audi start to in 2013. Through a process of that electricity could be transformed into hydrogen for electric vehicles.

The big breakthrough, as sees it, is that hydrogen also be combined with CO2 to compressed natural gas (CNG), or which would be fed into the energy storage grid to heating and power for homes as as fuel for cars. Water and are the only waste products, of which is harmful to the environment.

This solution, which calls e-gas, would not take CO2 out of the atmosphere, but also use storage facilities and infrastructures, which is not possible with or fuel-cell cars.

Audi is convinced that is the only realistic solution for storage of renewable fuels, a supported by Dr Michael Sterner, of the Institute for Wind Energy.

has bought four wind in the North Sea and in July will to build a facility capable of the electricity they generate gas.

Two of these will electricity for its A1 e-tron fleet the other two will be the start for gas production.

1500 A3s to run on CNG

In 2013 Audi to build a pilot fleet of A3s capable of running on CNG as well as These will have a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol and a range on CNG of around 250 miles.

will have CO2 emissions of — about the same as a Golf Bluemotion — but will be balanced by the CO2 that is in the production of the CNG to power them.

Production of both e-tron and Audis will be expanded in by which time Audi to have 62 windmills generating electricity as the base source of gas to 40,000 vehicles.

Dr Sterner that for now, CNG gas production by method is uneconomic and will supporting with subsidies, but he that by 2030 up to 30% of global transport’s energy needs be supplied this way. by using solar-generated electricity as gas could be the fuel for all road just 200 square miles of the desert could create solar energy to supply all the the whole world needs, he
