Sweden’s ambitious plan to drastically cut emissions from transport by bringing millions of electric cars onto the road could be derailed by a lack of power capacity for new charging stations in major cities.
EVgo, USA's largest public fast charging network, announced today that it has completed or has in construction 14 battery storage systems located at 11 fast charging stations, the largest deployment of battery storage systems at public fast charging stations in the nation.
2018 has been a year that has continued the decade’s increasing focus on global climate change, with countries all around the world reacting (in different degrees) to the problems we tackle as a whole due to carbon emissions, many of which are directly tied to transport.
BMW AG and Porsche unveiled a charging station that can jolt electric vehicles with enough power to drive 100 kilometers (62 miles) in less than three minutes, pushing ahead of Tesla Inc. in the race to make battery-powered cars more convenient.
Electric vehicles make up only a small percentage of the global fleet of cars, but perhaps not for much longer. In some countries sales of EVs are soaring and overtaking sales of traditional cars. It’s no longer hard to imagine that the next generation will view the internal combustion engine in much the same way as we view the horse and cart - a relic of times past.
