Driving an electric car to work just got a lot easier for Honda employees – the company recently committed to installing 120 new EV chargers at its HQ.
“There was a lot of profanity, and then I slammed the phone down,” says Brian Howe, whose company, JNS Power & Control Systems, had installed about 40% of Chicago’s charging stations and was owed more than $161,000 by 350Green. This was in 2011, and 350Green had just called to tell him they were selling out. […]
People like gas-powered cars. Some people like the range and freedom they’re granted by the quick, accessible filling stations. Others- maybe most- just like the fact that they can fill up their car with dino-juice and not worry about it again for a week or so. Is that lazy? Sure it is. Is that what’s […]
A mainstream switch to non-petroleum fuels won’t be possible without the support of commercial fleets and over-the-road truck buyers, which account for a huge percentage of total miles driven. These truck fleets depend on a solid infrastructure in order to effectively schedule their job-critical operations, however, and (quite understandably) will hesitate to adopt any alternative […]
Waste Management (WM) has opened a public compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Camden New Jersey. In May WM opened a similar CNG station located in Wheeling Illinois. That station opened with 40 filling bays and is used to fuel WM’s six CNG powered trucks that operate in and around the city of Chicago. […]
Project Better Place keeps making waves, having recently announced partnerships with Renault and expansion into Denmark. With all the news and progress being made, Better Place certainly seems legit, but perception often lags reality, and some of our readers have left comments questioning whether Better Place’s business model had any legs. As if answering in […]
People don’t like to wait. That’s what made Domino’s Pizza the success it was in the 1980s and it’s what makes electric cars such a tough sell today. Call it “range anxiety” if you want, but you can run out of gas, too, and nobody complains about that. What is really at the heart of […]
I’m not much of a fan of scooters. I prefer vehicles to have four wheels rather than too, and scooters always struck me as kinda geeky. Anybody who knows me knows I am geeky enough without having to broadcast it to the world. Scooters aren’t all that popular in America, but all over the world […]
I’ve been hearing about hydrogen cars for decades. The wave of the future, they say. Clean, efficient transportation whose only byproduct is water. It all sounds very promising, and hydrogen is supposedly the most abundant element in the universe. While the technology and cars are there, the infrastructure, unfortunately, is not. And it could be […]
[social_buttons] The City of Copenhagen has announced the establishment of its first hydrogen fueling station, alongside a mini-fleet of fuel cell vehicles, and hopes that the move will help it towards the ambitious goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral capital city in the world by 2025. Following the recent news of a growing hydrogen fueling […]
[social_buttons] The biggest limitation on electric cars, as we know, are the batteries. They take hours to charge, and cannot travel nearly as far as gas-powered engines. So while California may be the center of the “green movement,” traveling the almost 400 miles between Los Angeles and San Francisco is impossible on electric power. Until […]
[social_buttons] Holland has announced plans to install five electric car charging bays, the first of their kind ever seen in the country. To move to set up five Electromotive Elektrobays follows a government drive to improve air quality. The stations will be located at strategic points across the country, including Schipol International Airport and central […]
