Shell Gas Stations In UK & Netherlands Will Add EV Charging Stalls

February 21st, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Sometimes, it's a good thing to change your spots. Shell is doing a bit of that. Shell is not a name I think of at all in terms of clean air infrastructure. More often, I reflect on the problems of the oil company in places it should not be — rainforests, the Arctic, etc. Changing its spots, Shell is offering a new face with a clean air emphasis. Shell is planning a second choice in how it fuels up cars, and it is a good thing for once. Northern Europe will see the beginning of the change. Some Shell stations in UK and Netherlands will reportedly be adding EV charging stations later this year

The Chargepoint Express Plus solution is really the foundation of the DC fast charging system, operating between the utility and the charging adapter, and the adapter itself is really nothing more than a bolt-on to that foundation. Taking the next logical step, I asked about adding on wireless charging which would, in and of itself, make it possible to charge autonomous vehicles without the need for a complex 'snake' charger


Fake News & Test-Driving New EVs in Florida

January 27th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

We hear more about false news these days than in the past — unless you grew up with me. False news has always been around. I was raised by a father who ranted about "Madison Ave" controlling our lives. "Watch out what you read — make sure it's true. Question what you hear. Avoid gossip, it leads to lies." Now, we witness our head of state refusing to answer straightforward questions from reporters and just shouting back that they are "fake news" — a clever way of turning the story on its head after the focus had been on pro-Trump outlets and advisors peddling false news
