Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is incrementally electrifying transportation on, from, and to the aviation hub. Being the largest airport in the Netherlands and the 3rd largest player in Europe, with 63.6 million passengers handled in 2016, Schiphol has expressed an ambition to become the most sustainable airport in the world.

A Toyota Prius Owner Test Drives A Nissan LEAF

“Well I can tell you the first thing I like about Nissans in general — is that I love their seats — the way they hug your body. The seats in my hybrid are not as nice.” Diego Alejandro continues: “This is really cool. I love all the high-tech stuff, the way it sounds when you turn it on. I like the sound.

Nissan’s EVs Can Provide Resilient Power & Mobile Emergency Backup

I like the breeze off the Gulf of Mexico, but it’s sometimes too strong — the summer hurricane season is upon us, and who knows what’s around the corner?

UK & Netherlands Shell Stations To Add EV Charging

Sometimes, it’s a good thing to change your spots. Shell is doing a bit of that. Shell is not a name I think of at all in terms of clean air infrastructure. More often, I reflect on the problems of the oil company in places it should not be — rainforests, the Arctic, etc. Changing its spots, Shell is offering a new face with a clean air emphasis. Shell is planning a second choice in how it fuels up cars, and it is a good thing for once. Northern Europe will see the beginning of the change. Some Shell stations in UK and Netherlands will reportedly be adding EV charging stations later this year.
