Hybrid Car Acronyms and Definitions:
  • Active solar systems - solar systems that use additional mechanisms such as circulation pumps, air blowers or tracking systems which aim collectors at the sun. These mechanisms are typically powered by electricity and may have additional electronic or computerized automatic controls.
  • BAS - Belt Alternator Starter. The traditional alternator in the engine accessory drive is replaced by a combination alternator / starter / electric motor.
  • Carbon Dioxide - CO2. Burning fossil fuels releases carbon that has been stored underground for millions of years into the atmosphere. The carbon in these fossil fuels is transformed into carbon dioxide, the predominant gas contributing to the greenhouse effect, during the combustion process. Large amounts of carbon dioxide are released to the atmosphere by human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels.
  • Combined Heat and Power - CHP, or cogeneration, is an electricity generation technology that involves the recovery of waste heat from the electric generation process to produce other forms of useful energy simultaneously, such as useable heat or steam. CHP is better for the environment, the economy, and our nation's energy supply than generating heat and power separately because conventional electricity generation is inherently inefficient.
  • EPA - Environmental Protection Agency.
