Alternative transportation is what we do around here at Gas2, whether it’s fuel sipping hybrids, full blown EVs, bikes, or public transit. As an industry, it’s a great place to work, and a great way to make a living while making a difference. To sign up for a newsletter entirely devoted to our blog posts on […]

Germany is going to be getting more EV changing stations as the government looks to grow paltry plug-in car sales.
Devastated by droughts and faced with water supplies that have been quite literally sucked dry by the fracking industry they voted into their area, many residents of north and west Texas feel there’s nothing left to do but pray for help. Lucky for them, there are a few Texans who aren’t quite as willing to […]
Ignite is widely regarded as one of the top players in the premium ethanol fuels business, and the company has powered some of the most powerful flex-fuel street cars on the road and on the racetrack– not to mention the entire USAC Midget racing field for the past few years. As such, I probably shouldn’t […]
Forget LA, Detroit, Chicago, or even SEMA. If you’re a dedicated go-fast enthusiast, the Performance and Racing Industry trade show (aka, the PRI Show) is the one you want to be at. With serious hardware from motorsports’ major players and some trick new toys on display, the 2013 show at Indy was no exception- and […]
For a dozen years, French designer Jacques Rougerie has had his idea of a totally sustainable and mobile vertical sea vessel dismissed as a sci-fi pipe dream. Against all odds though, his dream vessel is looking more and more like it might actually get built thanks to the power of crowdfunding. The sustainable research vessel […]
It’s one of the biggest hurdles facing fossil fuel divestment: Where to find sustainable investment options that create secure returns on investment in an energy market often dominated by fossil fuel companies. But thanks to action taken by two of…
“Farmers and ranchers in Nebraska didn’t ask to do business with TransCanada,” says the no-nonsense voice-over, “and TransCanada isn’t asking to do business with us.” That idea – that TransCanada is pushing their Keystone XL pipeline on them using political force – is the motivation behind a group of Nebraska farmers and ranchers. “They tried […]
The U.S. Army is considering a “lightweight” diesel-electric hybrid truck to replace the Humvee in combat operations.
Despite the fact that farmers denied it and that the AAA came out against anti-ethanol ads, a huge percentage of the public believes big oil’s ridiculous fear mongering. As has happened time and time again, new information coming is making those people look pretty silly.
If you’re looking for an ultra-lightweight, low-emissions car that looks like a million bucks, goes like stink, and is made almost entirely of renewable and recycled materials in a low-energy, low-emissions factory then you, dear friend, are shopping for a Morgan.
Are you very wealthy yet still very paranoid? Do you think the end times are nigh, and that the huddled masses of the poor and downtrodden will soon rise up in angry vengeance against your merciless addiction to profits over people?
If so, then the sustainable floating Island-e-Motion is the place for you!
This year’s Indy 500 is shaping up to be a good one, with F1 contenders Rubens Barichello and Jean Alesi adding some international talent to a field of drivers that (finally!) feels like something out of the long-lost golden days of CART. In addition to being one of the first “good” 500s in recent memory, […]
Earlier this week, CSR announced plans to build the world’s first carbon-neutral locomotive. Set to run on biocoal (“coal” fuel created through an energy-efficient processing and compressing of cellulosic biomass), the train will will have the same performance and load-hauling capabilities as traditional coal-burning engines, but without harmful metals or volatile off-gasses. Check out the […]
With the political climate in America being what it is these days, it seems like most talk of serious action is anything but serious. It seems as though most legislation is introduced as a way to drum up rhetoric on one subject or another. Green energy is the latest target of the ire of Republicans […]
An ambitious electric car-sharing program started last year in Paris – long time Gas2 readers may remember the Autolib system, a dense network of charging stations and rentable electric BlueCars. The little silver cars with colorful stickers are supposed to number 3000 by the end of next year, but they seem to be ever so […]

The SolarWorld GT, hailed as the world’s prettiest solar car, is making its way across America right now as part of its attempt to go farther than any solar-powered car has ever gone. The World’s Prettiest Solar Car Drives Through America (via Clean Technica)
In a bid to host something cute, trendy, and green (the cute was mainly to attract female students), the driving school […]
This last year has seen a lot of attention for biofuels (both positive and negative). One company that managed to miss most of the attention was the startup Cool Planet Biofuels, but given its most recent announcement, it may start […]
