For more chart fun, I published a report on wind and solar power growth in the UK from 2012–2020 (thanks to a reader tip).

We also have an English translation of an interview with a Tesla Berlin engineer who moved over from Daimler/Mercedes-Benz and why.

We have some executive insights into GM’s new logo and ad campaign.

And we’ve got a few in-depth pieces on fuel efficient driving: One, Two, Three.

We also have a review of the VanMoof S3 electric bicycle.

Another piece on micromobility is our latest CleanTech Talk podcast, which is focused on what scooter-sharing companies have been lacking in their growth strategies.
