The Portuguese startup C2C-New Cap created a supercapacitor module that supplies the power peak needed to start the engine of a truck. The module is ready to be installed directly in almost any truck’s battery compartment.
With this supercapacitor installed, it will be possible to maintain all comfort features inside the cabin (heating, refrigerator, air-conditioning, TV, etc.) but keeping the engines off. This way, we’ll be able to reduce fuel consumption and gases release. The pilot has already started and shows promising results.
During 2022, the Vinum Solis (Wine of the Sun) project will develop an agrivoltaic solution adapted to vines in the Mediterranean region.
Located in the Almotivo Vineyard, in the heart of Lisbon, the Vinum Solis project will consist of an elevated structure equipped with photovoltaic modules, covering a wide parcel of encruzado grapes, to study the impact of shading and protection on vegetation, fruit and wine parameters.
Galp’s Innovation expertise in photovoltaics, led by Innovation, will be key to the process.
