As you may have noticed, one of my favorite events of 2017 was the first annual rEVolution conference from EVBox. That's where it was announced that Engie was acquiring EVBox, and there were also presentations from a host of electric vehicle leaders (including — shocker — yours truly)

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?"

A new Bloomberg New Energy Finance report focused on electric buses (e-buses) forecasts a surge in electric bus sales to 84% of global new bus sales by 2030. The report forecasts that electric cars will follow, but at a slower pace, reaching 28% of new car sales in

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

As the number of electric buses in the world grows, the demand for diesel fuel shrinks. That's good news for Keep It In The Ground advocates and anyone who wants to live a long, healthy life.

Enthusiasm for the fully electric future of mobility was one of the core elements of the rEVolution conference in Amsterdam on March 13. More than this: It was sort of like a little Woodstock for e-mobility. Yeaaaah! Great music, thundering sound, and the two hosts, Monica Araya and CleanTechnica Director Zachary Shahan, entering the stage like pop stars for their picturesque welcome

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. We had a fun CleanTechnica meetup last year on the night before the conference (which is actually how we ended up with Maarten as a superb CleanTechnica contributor). This year, the plan is to have a CleanTechnica meetup on March 13 again

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

In approximately 9 days, Monica Araya and I, co-hosts of the coming rEVolution 2018 conference in Amsterdam, will interview EVBox CEO Kristof Vereenooghe for CleanTechnica's next #Electrifying webinar series. Yep, that's right — we're going to tag team that Chiefer*

China has moved the starting date of its EV cap and trade program one year, giving manufacturers more time to adjust their product mix in time.

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."

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

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. If that happens, he says, demand for petroleum based fuels "will flatten out, maybe even decline." Total is one of the world's largest oil producers. His forecast surprised many people at the conference
