Audi engines will use wind power
The manufacturer plans to use wind power for its upcoming electric and natural gas vehicles.
Like other large companies, Audi is financing the construction of four wind turbines off the North Sea that will generate annually up to 53 GWh of electricity and from this electricity, the manufacturer plans to use a portion of the wind power to charge its electric e-tron vehicles.
Audi can power fuel cell vehicles, including the Audi Q5 HFC by harnessing the power of wind to produce hydrogen through electrolysis.
Audi currently uses e-gas to power a CNG version of the A3.
The A3 TCNG will be even more environmentally friendly; Audi plans to break ground on its own synthetic methane facility in July. Using CO2 from a connected waste-biogas plant, Audi’s facility will produce annually 1,000 metric tons of e-gas.
This fuel will be added to Germany’s natural gas network, which serves 900 CNG stations.
