Electric car powered by water? Joke…
Can a solar panel charge an EV car?
The daily yield of a single panel at full sunshine in middle Europe is about 1kWh of energy (5x 200Wh). This may be enough for driving 5 to 8 km.
In this case, the solar panel helps to keep the battery voltage of the traction battery pack. It is more a curiosity, less a real energy supply.

A rare photo from the Winston Factory
The Wiston company does not allow visitors to have an excursion to the LFP cell factory. Also the photography of the LFP production is not allowed. That is why this is a rare photo from the Winston factory production line.
Quite some number of cells can bee seen on the pallets and also on the production line. This is the final part of the production where charging and testing of the cells is done.
Mr. Winston Chung is the gentleman in black with sun glasses. Photo taken in 10/2013.

What about the circles at the picture? Do they move?
The standing, yet rotating circles, represent the innovative ideas that we wish to bring before the general public to move the thinking of people with new concepts and priciples - for example the GridFree concept!
GWL/Power Electromobility October 2012
The electromobility in a daily use: every day we drive 200 to 350 km in electric cars. We power the cars by the electricity that we produce locally from solar panels. No need to pay for the gasoline, no need to worry about the price of the petrol in the future.
The Edison bulb
In 1879, Edison made a successful demonstration the electric light bulb. Following the success, Edison started commercial production of the Edison bulbs. Please see a photo of the 220V Edison brand bulb in comparison with the modern time 230V bulb. The modern time bulb is smaller and using a thinner glass so it is lighter and requires less material for production.
GWL/Power team ready in Action!
We seldom take photos of ourselves… however here is a rare photo of three members of the GWL/Power team.
