Portable Generators

BAE Systems, a major hybrid bus manufacturer is thinking about the possibility of using the energy left over that is stored in the bus's batteries as an energy source in the result of an emergancy in their newest generation of buses. The companies current buses are also hybrids but don't use the newest lithium-ion energy storage technology to improve the amount of power generated. The current buses from BAE Systems that are in use already are saving cities 40% less to maintain and 24% less to operate than the earlier hybrid buses. The new bus will even reduce the operating and maintenence costs even more and more importanly serve as mobile generators to supply power to essential things in the result of an emergency such as hospitals (the company estimates that on a 100 gallon tank of fuel the bus could power a 12,400 square foot hospital for 22 hours.
