With the next-generation Nissan LEAF, the Chevy Bolt, and the Tesla Model 3 all making fully electric transport more practical for many normal households, we are entering another phase of the electric vehicle revolution. However, electric cars still hold at their core a double-edged issue — they offer luxuriously convenient home charging for people who can charge at home … but keeping the cars conveniently charged if you don’t have home charging can be a challenge.
Cities are great for electric cars since most days typically involve only moderate driving, the quiet serenity of an electric drivetrain is a huge stress reliever in stop & go traffic, and electric cars can help you cut the debilitating air pollution that can horribly harm and even prematurely kill your family, friends, and coworkers. However, cities are dominated by apartment buildings, have fewer single-family garages, and thus offer less opportunity to place your charging station right next to your kitchen.
Naturally, all of this means that we need to roll out more charging solutions for urban needs — in large parking garages, on public streets, at shopping centers and workplaces.
In our next #Electrifying webinar, Artur Sychov (Founder & CEO of EasyCharge.me), Kyle Field (CleanTechnica’s VP of Business Development & Chief EV Reviewer), and I will chat about the solutions at hand, the challenges, the way forward, and how we envision the next 1–17 years in the automotive/transport world.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
