I went to the North Pole to learn more in depth about the climate, and through my experiences I learned quite a lot. It made me more conscious, more quiet, and more motivated. One thing is clear — if we are going to preserve locations like Spitsbergen for the future, we need to make some changes.
In the last year, the world has reached a global climate agreement, renewable energy like solar and wind is now cheaper than fossil fuel-based electricity in many parts of the world.
Just before year’s end, the U.S. electric vehicle industry reached a new milestone: 1.1% of all new vehicles sold were electric in November 2016. We're closer to reaching the mass adoption of electric cars than you may think...
In average, people drive less than 40 miles a day, so why does still 50% of the people want a range of more than 190 miles before they'll buy an EV?
The US election season is taking off. And we've probably witnessed President Obama’s final big push to promote electric vehicles. Back in 2008, Obama aimed for 1 million vehicles on the road by 2015, as well as a revolution of the local car manufacturing economy.
Sometimes, even the government steps in. This is where sustainability becomes cheap and mandatory. More and more local governments now offer incentives for those who own electric cars and solar panels, making environment-friendly lifestyles more affordable for average households.
Distributech is the largest energy transmission and distribution conference in the US. Its massive conference floors showcase booths that can easily span 1.000 square feet. As I witnessed at this year's conference, things are changing fast in the power distribution arena.
