Sony Electric Car … Australian Fire Insanity … Zombie Solar Energy Storage System — CleanTechnica Top 20

The biggest, hottest, most enticing CleanTechnica stories last week were led by Sony unveiling an electric car, the impossible-to-comprehend scale of this month’s Australian wildfires, and a solar energy storage device from the 1980s that has come back to life. You may have noticed something unusual by now — there wasn’t a single Tesla story in the top 3! That’s the first time in a long time, and ironic considering that Tesla stock [TSLA] went bonkers last week (and is still going bonkers).

The biggest, hottest, most enticing CleanTechnica stories last week were led by Sony unveiling an electric car, the impossible-to-comprehend scale of this month’s Australian wildfires, and a solar energy storage device from the 1980s that has come back to life. You may have noticed something unusual by now — there wasn’t a single Tesla story in the top 3! That’s the first time in a long time, and ironic considering that Tesla stock [TSLA] went bonkers last week (and is still going bonkers).

Of course, there were several Tesla stories in the top 20, but I think it’s also the first time in a long time that more than half of the top stories were not Tesla stories. There were several energy storage and solar energy stories, as well as one on oil and one on EV sales in the UK. For more information and to click through to some of the most popular stories of 2020 (okay, it’s early), scroll down. Have fun!
