Cleantech Link Drop (Tesla vs Large Luxury Cars, Sungevity Leads Way Into North Carolina, Top 10 EV Battery Manufacturers…)

To kick off this cleantech news & views link drop, below is an awesome talk given by Envision Solar CEO Desmond Wheatley (…3 years ago). Chris wrote about it a bit on EV Obsession, but I just want to highlight that it’s one of the best talks on the topic of energy that I’ve ever seen — and I’ve seen a lot! I’d certainly put it in the top 10. Without getting your expectations up too high, or writing another summary of it like Chris did so well already, I’ll just shoot you straight to it:

Really, watch that video, and share it!
