Medium-Term Oil Market Report - July 2007 How much oil will the world consume in 2011? What role will OPEC play in global oil production? Will biofuels become an important part of the oil market? The International Energy Agency's (IEA) Medium-Term Oil Market Report tackles these questions, adopting a perspective that goes beyond the traditional short-term market analysis provided in the IEA's monthly Oil Market Report.    continue...

Toyota Reveals Concerns on Prius Conversions CalCars-News: For the first time, we have a statement revealing what Toyota thinks about hybrid conversions. So far, over 50 Priuses have been "green-tuned" (see ), using perhaps a dozen different engineering methods and batteries, by a broad range of companies, groups and individuals. See for a list of who's who in the conversion world. The quick summary: availability is extremely limited; the opportunity for volume deliveries remains a future possibility.    continue...

US Senators Introduce Bill to Promote Plug-In Electric Drive Vehicles, Including Plug-In Conversions US Senate Finance Committee members Senators Maria Cantwell (D-WA) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) have introduced a bill to support the development of commercially viable plug-in electric drive vehicles (PEDVs), including pure battery-electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and plug-in fuel cell vehicles.    continue...

IEA expects oil prices to soar Some analysts feel crude could top $80 (U.S.) a barrel later this year World oil prices will rise sharply in the second half of 2007 unless OPEC increases production, the International Energy Agency said yesterday, as some analysts predicted that crude could top $80 (U.S.) a barrel later this year.    continue...

DOE Provides up to $19 Million for Advanced Vehicle Technologies; Projects total $33.8 million with government and industry cost share U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced the selection of five next-generation vehicle research projects, which will receive up to $19 million in DOE funding to further the development of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs). Combined with industry’s cost share, projects selected for negotiation of awards total $33.8 million (FY’07-’10).    continue...

Plug-in hybrids find road less bumpy in U.S. Take a gas-electric hybrid car, stick a bulky extra battery in the trunk and the result is the plug-in hybrid, a cutting-edge piece of technology that proponents say triples the already impressive fuel economy of a hybrid car. Provided, of course, you remember to plug it into a conventional wall socket and recharge its batteries overnight.    continue...
