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.
ABB announced on Tuesday that it has brought two new fast chargers to Luxembourg City’s central station as part of the rollout of a new plug-in hybrid bus system in the city.
If there were more EV charging stations, there would be more EVs, the argument goes. If there were more EVs, there would be more EV charging stations, runs the counter argument. And round and round we go. Let’s send some love out today to the folks at Kansas City Power & Light.

Tesla’s free Superchargers have been a hotly debated topic since they first went live for the Model S. People complained about how it wasn’t scalable, how the stalls would all fill up because of local freeloaders when it was designed for people taking long trips…suffice it to say that it has been a point of contention for the company…but at the same time, one of Tesla’s key differentiators.

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.
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.

Originally published on CleanTechnica. It must be a holiday — Tesla CEO Elon Musk is having fun on Twitter and teasing product updates. One thing readers have been asking about for years is when exactly Tesla’s Supercharger network will be solar powered, and, similarly, how many Tesla Superchargers currently include solar panels. Early on, Elon highlighted that Tesla […]
