GeoOrbital Surges Past Kickstarter Goal

Massachusetts startup hopes to make the switch to electric-assisted cycling even easier by converting nearly any bike in 1-minute's time.

It seems like a pretty slick idea. The Boston-based startup behind it has attracted nearly 500 backers and surged well past their $75,000 goal. At the moment, they have a tidy third-of-a-million dollars pledged and there's still a good five weeks to run in their Kickstarter campaign.

Unlike previous e-bike crowdfunders, including E...

Emerald Plug-In Van Gets Go-Ahead in UK

Now owned by Geely of China, the Emerald T-001 is part of a £250 million investment that also includes London black cabs.

When Geely, a leading Chinese automaker, took control of London Taxi International (LTI), the makers of the famed London black cabs, the deal also included acquisition of the T-001 project, an extended range electric-hybrid delivery van that uses the same aluminum chassis and powertrain as the new taxi.

The fate of the van project,...

Ukranian-developed Synchronous electric car prototype

Ukrainian EV Sets Sights on Electric Taxi Market

Constructed of wood, leather, and Bakelite, this EV sounds more like a Victoria-era carriage than 21st century electric car.

It's a sad commentary that much of what we know about the Ukraine centers on its violent civil war, including the downing of MH 17, and its disastrous Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown, the 30th anniversary of which recently passed.

But there is good news that also comes out of its fertile soil, intellectually, creatively, as ...

DLR's HY4 hydrogen four-place e-plane

Fuel Cell E-Plane Flight Planned Summer 2016

German researchers are planning to test fly a fuel cell-powered electric airplane.

Is Our Situation Dire, or is it Over

By John Gilkison

How some Near Tern Human Extinction people are saying there is nothing we can do to fix the predicament we are in so we should stop trying. In this blog I am pointing how from a cost point of view alone we should not abandon the quest to switch to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reducing our impact on the planet even if it will not make a difference in the end. Besides there is a philosophical component to at least acting like or trying to be a man even in our last hours.

It looks like “Abrupt Climate Change” has started kicking in with a vengeance in the last few years, but especially in 2016. On a television show originally aired in October of 2014 called the Newsroom, which is a dramatization of the news business they portrayed a newscaster interviewing a climate scientist who proclaimed our collective situation ...

What An EV World Weekend!

By Bill Moore

While a 'gaggle' of open-wheel race cars are careening about the streets of central Paris, a solo pilot soars alone over the Pacific in a four-engined airplane; and what they all have in common is they all are battery-powered.

What an amazing weekend in our emerging EV world. While my wife and I were sprucing up our home with new greenery, some 4,500 miles away, Formula E, the FIA-sanctioned open wheel electric car racing series, took to the streets of Paris, France, testing and pushing the latest in EV propulsion technology.
