Pipistrel Alpha Electro flight trainer will be built at new production facility near Nanjing, China

Pipistrel Goes to Asia

Slovenian aircraft company Pipistrel signs accord to build two of its aircraft outside Nanjing, China with sales destined for some eleven countries in the region, including China.

China isn't just the world's largest car market, it's a pretty good bet it could also be the world's largest airplane market, especially light airplanes. So, it makes sense that Ivo Boscarol, the founder and head of Pipistrel (Slovenian for "Bat") would partner up with Chinese entrepreneur and Danny Wu Hao to produce aircraft for the Chinese a...

UEVs: The Submerged World of Underwater Electric Vehicles

They are one of the oldest forms of hybrid electric vehicles, and like their surface counterparts, the human is about to be relegated to the role of an observer or target.

It was 90 years ago that the US Navy proposed powering its new S-Class submarines using a system similar to what powers today's hybrid cars - the Prius and the Volt, for example - an internal combustion engine connected via a special transmission to a generator/motor combination. On the surface, diesel engines would turn the prop shaft and/o...

PhD Hubris

By John Gilkison

How having a PhD in Biology, Conservation Biology, Climate Science, or anything else really doesn't necessarily qualify you to speak on energy issues. Having actual expertise on energy issues is more important as without the prerequisite 10,000 hours of study you just won't know what you don't know.

On a Facebook page called the Arctic News I got into an argument with some Guy McPherson (a conservation biologist) fan club boys about global dimming. The thrust of their position was that because of global dimming caused by aerosols put into the atmosphere by dirty power plants (all kinds including mobile ones) it would not do us any good to try ...

Is the Mixed Company of Bolivian Lithium Deposits with Germany "Submissive" and Illegal? (Part I)

By Juan Carlos Zuleta

This is the first of a series of contributions on the joint venture between Bolivian Lithium Deposits and ACI Systems from Germany to extract lithium hydroxide from Salar de Uyuni. It is aimed at describing at length what I have called Bolivia’s worst economic business in national history. In addition, it highlights the contrasting views of the two partners in terms of vision and scope of the new association. At last, it also shows a number of contradictions identified in their respective press releases with respect to Supreme Decree No. 3738 that officially establishes the new joint venture.


Since its foundation, which occurred on December 12, 2018 in Berlin, Germany, amid a marked secrecy and a huge lack of transparency, the joint venture formed by Bolivian Lithium Deposits (henceforth called YLB) and ACI Systems Germany GmbH (henceforth denominated ACISA) seems to present different perspectives from the two partner...
