Cleantech Revolution Tour Launching In Berlin — April 8–10

Originally published on CleanTechnica (with slight modification). As I wrote just before Christmas, CleanTechnica is planning to implement solar + electric vehicle events in cities across North America and Europe (and perhaps further at some point). In partnership with GridHub, an exciting renewable energy startup based in Berlin that I’ll write more about shortly, we’re launching the […]

Last Chance To Chime In

As many of you know, I’m writing up a report based on four electric vehicle surveys we’ve been conducting. I’m getting close to writing up sections on the results, and am thus going to close the surveys soon. If you haven’t completed any of the applicable surveys yet, this is your “last chance.” I think I […]

Country Comparison: Electric Car Incentives & Electric Car Market Share

Originally published on EV Obsession. Incentives are an interesting thing. Sometimes, the ones you think will work the best don’t work too well. Sometimes, ones you don’t think will have as much effect end up having a huge effect. Sometimes, incentives work great with one population but don’t work so well with another population. Electric car […]

Aim To Cheat EPA & American Public Pervades Auto Industry

Via CleanTechnica: I discovered in the comment thread of Jo’s first piece on the Volkswagen diesel scandal that one of our frequent commenters here on CleanTechnica used to work for the EPA, and part of his work was to find “defeat devices” — that is, devices auto companies used to trick EPA emissions tests. As shocking and […]

Hitler’s Angry Response To Volkswagen Scandal (Video)

Via CleanTechnica: Well, this was inevitable… If you’re new to the internet, that scene has been given completely incorrect subtitles numerous times for entertainment/amusement purposes. In fact, one has previously been made for “Hitler’s response to Tesla’s free Superchargers,” which I shared before but will pop here again: As I shared the other day (and everyone […]
