    You Wanna Go On A Road Trip?

    You Wanna Go On A Road Trip?

    The short version:

    • Before electric vehicles weren’t good for road trips, but now they are
    • Electrify America just finished installing the first of two electric cross-country networks of ultra chargers
    • It still takes longer than filling up with gas, but they conveniently placed them near stores and restaurants while your Porsche Tycan recharges 
    • They are going to have another cross-country charging network by the end of September
    • Their goal is to build confidence in EV owners by making long travel in EV’s a possibility and a reality

    So here’s the deal………. Electrify America is finally fulfilling what they were made to do, build confidence in EV’s. This is exciting because being in/on an electric vehicle is a thrill, wether it is in a car or another electric vehicle. I can’t wait until electric vehicle take over the world and we lower global climate change and the greenhouse gasses. We are giving the next generation a change to live in a world that is beautiful and one that is worth living on.

    Can They Do It?

    Can They Do It?

    The short version:

    • Lyft is aiming to get all of their vehicles electric by 2030
    • This includes ALL cars used in Lyft
    • In 2018, they made all rides carbon-neutral through it’s carbon offsets programme
    • They announced that they are getting rid of this programme so that they can focus on going all electric
    • They say that electric batteries have gone down 90% from 2010, and now is the time to make  “Cleaner, healthier, and more equitable communities.” 
    • “Success breeds success, and if we do this right, it creates a path for others.  If other ride-share and delivery companies, automakers and rental car companies make this shift, it can be the catalyst for transforming transportation as a whole.” Says Fred Krupp, president of the EDF

    So here’s the deal……..Lyft wants to go all electric by 2030. They say that batteries have gone down 90% from 2010. They want to pave the path for other ride-share companies. They want to rise from this pandemic better than before.

    This is exciting because they want to go all electric, not just more electric. No more carbon emissions from Lyft anymore! (Hopefully;))

    Carbon-Free M.V. by 2040

    Carbon-Free M.V. by 2040

    The short version:

    • The Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s Climate Action Task force is coming up with a way to go carbon-free by 2040
    • They are focusing on taking greenhouse gasses away from fossil fuels, 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2040
    • “There greenhouse footprint is practically comparable to the U.S. as a whole,” says the working paper
    • Reducing electricity and heat in second homes, building micro grids for neighborhoods and essential companies, not driving so many miles, and other actions will help them achieve this
    • They are hoping that the legislature will allow this and then they can start phase two

    So here’s the deal…… The Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s Climate Action Task force wants to go carbon-free by 2040. This is exciting because they are lowering their greenhouse gas footprint a lot to help with “social justice for the future generation.” 

    I can’t wait to see how they do this and have all electric vehicles and other things like that to help combat climate change and also the greenhouse footprint.

    Solar To The Heart Of Coal Counties

    Solar To The Heart Of Coal Counties

    The short version

    • Solar Workgroup wants to set up solar farms in the heart of seven coal counties
    • Their legislation passed two laws that says that energy companies Appalachian Power and Old Dominion Power must expand their net metering caps and Old Dominion Power must offer a community solar program
    • Solar Workgroup wants to install 10 MV, make 15 new full-time jobs, create new entrepreneurship jobs and small businesses, and install one school in each area.
    • They want to identify and develop sites that are ideal for solar development, especially solar “ambassador” projects, grow workforce development and entrepreneurship opportunities to advance solar projects and maximize local benefits, expand education and outreach in communities and with local leaders around solar benefits and opportunities, and promote policy changes that will help grow the solar industry in Southwest Virginia.

    So here’s the deal……Solar Workgroup want to put in 10 MV of solar panels in seven coal counties, make new jobs and install a school per solar farm. 

    I hope that this will make it so that the world will see their change and make it so they invest in solar and diminish the worlds greenhouse footprint.

    Where Are The Buses And Trucks?

    The short version:

    • NY has the most famous electrified transportation system in all of the U.S.A
    • Although it is off to a good start, it still has a bigger greenhouse footprint in transportation than the U.S as a whole
    • NY has a new climate law that is going to help with that, with a white paper for sufficient charging infrastructure submitted in January  
    • They have forgotten to include buses and trucks in this new law, which include diesel trucks, so not only money impact put health as well
    • It will cost them a lot if they don’t do it right and include large charging stations
    • If they don’t do this right and cost the public their health

    So here is the deal… New York has this all new climate law that has their transportation going to all electric, but it has a big flaw……….They forgot to add trucks and busses in this big plan.

    If they don’t add trucks and busses in this plan and white paper, they it could have a huge impact on not only the greenhouse footprint, but also the health of the public. 

    I hope that New York sees this flaw and fixes it before they have to spend tons on the outcome of it.

    In India, the Sun shines brighter than coal burns.

    In India, the Sun shines brighter than coal burns.

    The short version:

    • In India, the latest auction for fro 400 MW of solar power went for a levelised tariff of Rs 3.52/unit over 15 years.
    • The equivalent thermal power tariff would have been closer to Rs 4.5/unit. 
    • This means India does not need additional carbon taxes to induce a shift to renewables. 
    • The next hurdle to overcome is to get lower financing rates for building solar farms. 

    So here’s the deal…if India can fully switch to solar, then we all can. The amount of carbon emissions this will remove from the atmosphere is astounding. When it comes to solar, more and more often the right thing to do for the environment is also the most economical. Those situations are rare and exciting to watch. My prediction is that the pace of these changes will only increase.

    Scientists in Singapore can make electricity from the shadows.

    Scientists in Singapore can make electricity from the shadows.

    The short version:

    • Scientists in Singapore say they’ve created a device that allows electricity to be generated from shadows. 
    • During experiments, the shadow-effect energy generator (SEG) was able to power a watch. 
    • Based on the lab trials, the team’s four-cell SEG was twice as efficient when compared with commercial silicon solar cells, under the effect of shifting shadows. 
    • The SEG performs 200% better than that of commercial silicon solar cells under the effects of shadows, the team said. 
    • The costs of components used to make the SEG are around $30 to $50, compared with the hundreds of dollars used to make commercial solar panels per square meter.  

    So here’s the deal…can you imagine if we can get this to work efficiently, and at a low enough cost to work into clothing? There are plenty of applications where these wouldn’t work well. For those, traditional solar cells are fantastic. However, for the many, many places that are constantly in and out of the shadows, this will be a game-changer. Clothes, tents, portable charging stations, just to name a few.

    Volkswagen takes the R to EV

    R to Ev

    The short version

    • Volkswagen is turning there R division into electric vehicles 
    • They are equipping their new SUV with the 14.1 kWh battery pack for a combined 456 HP. 
    • The VW’s battery-electric missile has broken lots of records, so putting the R stamp on it is a sign to come
    • The Golf R will also be hybrid, with all wheel drive and hopefully still be “The-car-to-do-it-all.”

    So here is the deal… Volkswagen is turning their R division into electric vehicles. They are equipping them with their 14.1 kWh battery pack, which has broken lots of records. This is exciting because this means that there will be more electric vehicles that in turn will influence other companies to make more electric vehicles. Now with the Golf R being a hybrid, as well as having an all-wheel drive, this is going to really turn into “The-car-to-do-it-all.” This is going to a huge impact on electric vehicles. Electric vehicles are coming of the belt more and more these days. Eventually, maybe we will be able to not have to worry about inversion and people all over the world will be able to see the stars.

    Ford Invents Genius Car Cover That Charges Your EV

    The short version:

    • Ford filed a patent for a car cover with integrated solar cells. 
    • The cells will be flexible and used to recharge an electric vehicle. 
    • The car cover will also go from a “slack stowage state into a tensioned function state”. 
    • The number of solar cells was not described in the patent. 

    So here’s the deal… Ford is trying to develop a “Solar Cocoon” as they call it, but it’s in the very early stages. Typically I don’t like writing about patents and ideas. but this one caught my attention. Ford hasn’t really been leading the way in EV innovations, but it would be nice to see them make a contribution to the industry. 

    Will the Solar Cocoon be that contribution? It seems way to early to tell. The patent doesn’t mention how many cells might be included, or what charging it could offer. It seems like it could be helpful to those living in rural areas, or depending on the size of storage, an emergency charging source. Something akin to having a gas can in the back of your truck.

    • They want to identify and develop sites that are ideal for solar development, especially solar “ambassador” projects, grow workforce development and entrepreneurship opportunities to advance solar projects and maximize local benefits, expand education and outreach in communities and with local leaders around solar benefits and opportunities, and promote policy changes that will help grow the solar industry in Southwest Virginia.

    So here’s the deal……Solar Workgroup want to put in 10 MV of solar panels in seven coal counties, make new jobs and install a school per solar farm. 

    I hope that this will make it so that the world will see their change and make it so they invest in solar and diminish the worlds greenhouse footprint.

    You Wanna Go On A Road Trip?

    You Wanna Go On A Road Trip?

    The short version:

    • Before electric vehicles weren’t good for road trips, but now they are
    • Electrify America just finished installing the first of two electric cross-country networks of ultra chargers
    • It still takes longer than filling up with gas, but they conveniently placed them near stores and restaurants while your Porsche Tycan recharges 
    • They are going to have another cross-country charging network by the end of September
    • Their goal is to build confidence in EV owners by making long travel in EV’s a possibility and a reality

    So here’s the deal………. Electrify America is finally fulfilling what they were made to do, build confidence in EV’s. This is exciting because being in/on an electric vehicle is a thrill, wether it is in a car or another electric vehicle. I can’t wait until electric vehicle take over the world and we lower global climate change and the greenhouse gasses. We are giving the next generation a change to live in a world that is beautiful and one that is worth living on.

    Can They Do It?

    Can They Do It?

    The short version:

    • Lyft is aiming to get all of their vehicles electric by 2030
    • This includes ALL cars used in Lyft
    • In 2018, they made all rides carbon-neutral through it’s carbon offsets programme
    • They announced that they are getting rid of this programme so that they can focus on going all electric
    • They say that electric batteries have gone down 90% from 2010, and now is the time to make  “Cleaner, healthier, and more equitable communities.” 
    • “Success breeds success, and if we do this right, it creates a path for others.  If other ride-share and delivery companies, automakers and rental car companies make this shift, it can be the catalyst for transforming transportation as a whole.” Says Fred Krupp, president of the EDF

    So here’s the deal……..Lyft wants to go all electric by 2030. They say that batteries have gone down 90% from 2010. They want to pave the path for other ride-share companies. They want to rise from this pandemic better than before.

    This is exciting because they want to go all electric, not just more electric. No more carbon emissions from Lyft anymore! (Hopefully;))

    Carbon-Free M.V. by 2040

    Carbon-Free M.V. by 2040

    The short version:

    • The Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s Climate Action Task force is coming up with a way to go carbon-free by 2040
    • They are focusing on taking greenhouse gasses away from fossil fuels, 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2040
    • “There greenhouse footprint is practically comparable to the U.S. as a whole,” says the working paper
    • Reducing electricity and heat in second homes, building micro grids for neighborhoods and essential companies, not driving so many miles, and other actions will help them achieve this
    • They are hoping that the legislature will allow this and then they can start phase two

    So here’s the deal…… The Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s Climate Action Task force wants to go carbon-free by 2040. This is exciting because they are lowering their greenhouse gas footprint a lot to help with “social justice for the future generation.” 

    I can’t wait to see how they do this and have all electric vehicles and other things like that to help combat climate change and also the greenhouse footprint.

    Solar To The Heart Of Coal Counties

    Solar To The Heart Of Coal Counties

    The short version

    • Solar Workgroup wants to set up solar farms in the heart of seven coal counties
    • Their legislation passed two laws that says that energy companies Appalachian Power and Old Dominion Power must expand their net metering caps and Old Dominion Power must offer a community solar program
    • Solar Workgroup wants to install 10 MV, make 15 new full-time jobs, create new entrepreneurship jobs and small businesses, and install one school in each area.
    • They want to identify and develop sites that are ideal for solar development, especially solar “ambassador” projects, grow workforce development and entrepreneurship opportunities to advance solar projects and maximize local benefits, expand education and outreach in communities and with local leaders around solar benefits and opportunities, and promote policy changes that will help grow the solar industry in Southwest Virginia.

    Where Are The Buses And Trucks?

    The short version:

    • NY has the most famous electrified transportation system in all of the U.S.A
    • Although it is off to a good start, it still has a bigger greenhouse footprint in transportation than the U.S as a whole
    • NY has a new climate law that is going to help with that, with a white paper for sufficient charging infrastructure submitted in January  
    • They have forgotten to include buses and trucks in this new law, which include diesel trucks, so not only money impact put health as well
    • It will cost them a lot if they don’t do it right and include large charging stations
    • If they don’t do this right and cost the public their health

    So here is the deal… New York has this all new climate law that has their transportation going to all electric, but it has a big flaw……….They forgot to add trucks and busses in this big plan.

    If they don’t add trucks and busses in this plan and white paper, they it could have a huge impact on not only the greenhouse footprint, but also the health of the public. 

    I hope that New York sees this flaw and fixes it before they have to spend tons on the outcome of it.
