Below were the top 20 articles published on CleanTechnica in November and then the top 20 articles published on CleanTechnica in the past week. Further down are 10 exclusive, completely original CleanTechnica stories that I especially enjoyed and would hope people found valuable — ones that somehow didn’t make it into the other lists of top stories.
Top Stories in November
As a quick summary, before we get to last month’s top stories, here’s a quick summary of what was hot: people were really interested in the 2021 Tesla Model 3 and the China-made Model 3 Standard Range Plus with LFP batteries, and the old narrative of legacy auto vs. Tesla was as popular as ever. However, the big story was that there was great diversity across the top 20 of the month — technological diversity as well as diversity in the type of content.
