Bloomberg: To Catch Up To Tesla, Big Auto Needs “Tricky Financial Stunt”

December 28th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

As Tesla's Model 3 continues to gain market share, legacy automakers face some daunting decisions. Bloomberg warns, "The future of the auto industry is going to look like the history of the cell phone ... some of today’s dominant car companies will share the fate of a few former titans of the smartphone. Remember BlackBerry, Nokia, and Palm?"


Cleantech Is Exciting!

April 29th, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

If you ask people today if cleantech is exciting, they will most likely not care or, if part of our cleantech bubble community, they will say "yes" and start shouting out "Musk, Tesla, SpaceX, Mars, Musk, Tesla ... (yeah, I know SpaceX is for space travel not cleantech, but you know, Elon, Tesla, Musk, SpaceX...). The trouble is, Elon Musk has no rivals. I mean, business-wise, there is a long list of competitors, but in terms of popularity, he seems somehow unchallenged. Rivalries have always inspired rivals themselves, but also the watchers, the ones who supported one or the other, and I am talking about it in the positive sense of urging people to do more, do better, or just do

Enthusiasm for the fully electric future of mobility was one of the core elements of the rEVolution conference in Amsterdam on March 13.

Where Are The Vehicle-To-Grid Cars?

March 23rd, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

Do you ever feel like you're watching some of the most interesting technological development, but at the same pace as glaciers melting? Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) certainly holds a special spot in this department. It has been touted as practical for over a decade now, but we still don't really have it

I'll be in Amsterdam again next week for the rEVolution conference.

rEVolution Chat — Watch Now!

February 6th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Revolution is the name of the game these days — or, rEVolution, as some of us like to put it. Here at CleanTechnica, our objective is to cover the EV revolution, solar revolution, wind revolution, energy storage revolution, and energy efficiency revolution. The reasoning is varied — cleaner air, new economic opportunities, cool tech, etc. — but one core reason is that we're racing to stop global warming, and we're not in the lead

Bloomberg: Tesla Set To Win

July 14th, 2017 | by Matt Pressman

Bad news may be on the horizon for Big Oil as electric cars gained traction this past week. Bloomberg reports that "France plans to end the sale of gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles by 2040" and "Volvo Car Group became the first major manufacturer to say it will start phasing out vehicles powered solely by fossil fuels." Who's poised to fill this gas-mobile void? "More than a dozen automakers are jostling to lead the U.S. electric-car race, but Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) sees a clear winner separating from the pack: Tesla Inc."

July 6th, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

Bloomberg New Energy Finance has a new prediction about electric cars -- they will account for more than half of all new car sales globally by 2040 and account for a third of all light duty vehicles on the road. The latest report was put together by an advanced team of BNEF analysts and takes several factors into account. Its predictions are significantly more optimistic than the last BNEF report just one year ago, which projected sales of electric cars would reach 35% of the market by

April 26th, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

At the Bloomberg New Energy Finance conference in New York on April 25, Joel Couse, chief economist for Total, predicted that sales of electric cars will surge from about 1% globally in today's new car market to up to 30% of the market by 2030.
