Tesla Critics Don't Understand (Or Just Ignore) Tesla's Mission

Tesla Critics Don't Understand (Or Just Ignore) Tesla's Mission

I used to find the debate between Tesla critics (most notably short sellers) and Tesla fans as somewhat interesting but mostly straightforward. Tesla critics somehow thought that Tesla inherently couldn’t make profits on its products. Tesla fans thought and explained how Tesla could. Tesla critics thought Tesla couldn’t learn the art and skill of efficient, smooth mass production. Tesla fans noted many times that this isn’t rocket science (ahem). Tesla critics thought major automakers would come out with electric vehicles superior to what Tesla offered and would thus kill the company. Tesla...

Wind & Solar Are Cheaper Than Everything, Lazard Reports

Wind & Solar Are Cheaper Than Everything, Lazard Reports

   by  We recently saw the International Energy Agency (IEA) report that solar power offers the cheapest electricity in history. That was a global report. A US-focused report from recently reported something similar. The highly regarded energy analysts showed that wind and solar offer the cheapest electricity in the country, even significantly undercutting natural gas combined cycle power plants now. But that’s only half of it.Historically, when we write about such reports, we — and the analysts we’re referencing — are comparing estimated electricity costs from new power plants. However,...

Tesla’s Wild Ride — Birth to 2020

Tesla’s Wild Ride — Birth to 2020

   by  The past 12 years of Tesla’s growth and development has been a sight to see, and it’s been a terrific story to cover closely since 2012. This past week was the 10 year anniversary of Tesla buying its Fremont factory from Toyota and GM. Tesla cofounder and CEO Elon Musk recently reflected on the company’s growth since then and memories of that period, which feels like a lifetime ago.That funding round completed 6pm on Christmas Eve in 2008. Last hour of last day possible, as investors were leaving town that night & we were 3 days away from bankruptcy. I put in all money I had, didn’t...

Kandi’s Small & Super Cheap K27 Cleared For California Roads

Kandi’s Small & Super Cheap K27 Cleared For California Roads

   by  A rather well known electric vehicle producer in China goes by the name of Kandi. It is perhaps most famous for “EV vending machines” that its cars were used in as part of electric carsharing programs — an innovative solution to limited parking space. Now, Kandi has a little (and cheap!) electric car coming to California., the US subsidiary of Kandi Technologies Group Inc. (NASDAQ GS: KNDI), announced yesterday that it was certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as meeting the state’s emissions standards. (Odd day to publish such an announcement, but it is what it...

1st Floating Solar Power Plant In Belgium Goes Up — 17,250 Floating Solar Panels

1st Floating Solar Power Plant In Belgium Goes Up — 17,250 Floating Solar Panels

   by  We’ve been covering for years, but I’ll admit it — when we started covering the concept , it seemed like a cool idea with many benefits, but I wondered if it would end up being commercially competitive enough to grow to a large scale. Not knowing the full costs, benefits, and challenges, it simply wasn’t clear. But the idea always had great appeal and caught people’s attention. It sounds cool.Well, the technology choice has been growing and growing, with both larger and larger plants and broader application, including geographically. The latest country to add a floating solar power...

47 Scientists: World Should Go 100% Renewable Electricity By 2030

47 Scientists: World Should Go 100% Renewable Electricity By 2030

Hi, what are you looking for?There are a lot of announcements out there from countries and companies regarding increasing renewable energy adoption and reducing emissions. A in the journal Nature pointed out that they are often too vague and vary quite a lot. The authors recommended clarifying scope and a long-term roadmap, among other things. 47 other scientists in this realm have made that a little easier for any leaders with a modest amount of courage and ambition. They say that countries and companies can and should aim for 100% renewable electricity no later than 2030, and 100%...
