Electric Diamond

Mutterings abounded last week at Diamond Light Source that there was a Jaguar outside the building, it was to do with the launch of the Faraday Institute and Diamond was helping out on the occasion and showcasing the event with various companies showing off their work

Above the I-pace Jaguar which is Electric

Most interest was around this one which was used in the Film Spectre which was built in conjunction with Williams

Williams also had this on show

Their work on F1 also helps out ways

The floor of the platform contains the batteries

The drive at the front, I might add the wishbone suspension was Carbon Fibre

This got me wondering though I thought it might be a bit power supply I was not far wrong. In one of the photos of the Jaguar you can see a white Nissan Leaf, well at the end of it's life the batteries which are still useful can be stored in this unit which is connected to your Solar panels on the roof of your house and store the energy for use around your home. The unit can be put in your garage taking up little space. I like this idea

Want a bike, this one is a Brompton Electric also made in conjunction with Williams I was told.

The future looks electrifying

  1. Interesting photos. I love "The future looks electrifying..." Yes, yes it does!

  2. This is fascinating to me. I didn't know that Jaguar was making an electric car too. I love the idea of connecting the batteries to solar panels to store energy for the home. This is all very innovative.

  3. What a good idea to be able to reuse the batteries.

  4. hmm I'm not sure how one would sit on the bike lol looks like it's for a tall person.

  5. Very interesting, although that first car looks nothing like any Jaguar I have ever seen.
    So many innovative ideas here, however.
    Thanks for sharing.
