One of the problems with an all electric car is charging them. As opposed to gasoline stations, there are far fewer opportunities to charge electric vehicles. Shai Agassi hopes Israel is ready to embrace the efficiency and economics of electric cars. His company Better Place rolled out four electric car charging stations in northern Israel. It is planned to
Eight U.S. and German automakers have agreed on a standardized technology system for electric vehicle charging, a coordinated approach they say will allow drivers to rapidly re-charge their vehicles at most charging stations regardless of power source.
The announcement is an important breakthrough for
Schneider Electric is a well known French global company offering energy efficient solutions for both homes and businesses around the world. As the “Global Specialist in Energy Management,” Schneider Electric provides the technology and solutions needed to fully optimize energy usage in all
A California-based start-up will begin selling electric cars in Israel next month that include a subscription package for a leased battery and the costs of recharging the vehicle.

When plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) become a staple on U.S. highways, one of the unheralded reasons for the successful comeback will be because early on automakers agreed on a plug standard for basic EV charging. The Society of Automotive Engineers – an international group that is heavily influenced by its
Even before electric vehicles began their comeback, researchers started to develop technology that enable car owners to make money by selling power stored in batteries back to the grid. Under V2G, EVs charge their vehicles off-peak (primarily overnight), and then sell power back to grid operators during
The global market for home energy management systems — including in-home display devices, web-based energy management dashboards, and smartphone applications — will surge over the next decade, according to a new market forecast.
The report by U.S.-based Pike Research predicts
When you think of cutting-edge, sustainable transportation technology, the rolling hills of Tennessee might not immediately spring to mind, but makers of the all-electric Nissan LEAF plan to change that.
Nissan ignited local excitement when it announced plans to install solar-assisted EV charging stations at
The city of London, which has set a goal of becoming the “electric car capital” of Europe, has launched a new network of 150 charging stations, increasing the total number of stations citywide to more than 400.
Calling a lack of charging points the biggest hurdle to the wider adoption of electric vehicle technology,
My son is learning how to drive. Gulp. So what’s his biggest issue so far? Dad telling him to check his mirrors more often or begging him to turn down his hip-hop radio station? No, he doesn’t like learning how to drive in a gas-guzzling SUV the size of Rhode Island.
He wants an electric vehicle. “Just think – no pollution
