Bernie Sanders’ Climate Plan: Excellent On Electrification, But Concerningly Authoritarian & Populist – #Election2020

September 28th, 2019 | by Michael Barnard

Bernie Sanders’ electrification plan is excellent but depends on potentially dangerous authoritarian populism, his transportation plan is mostly about cars for less wealthy people, his land use plan is good, but military and industry don’t get nearly enough attention. Only about half of the $16.3 trillion can be tracked to things which actually reduce climate change

Fracking Creates A Glut Of Fossil Fuels & A Mountain Of Debt

June 28th, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

To hear officials in the Trump administration tell it, fracking is a fantastic gift to the American people because it allows the US to be the largest oil and gas producer in the known universe. The US is pumping so much of the stuff, it now has what is being called "energy security." Apparently no one in government has tumbled to the fact that renewable energy also provides that elusive "energy security" as well


Wiesbaden Orders 56 Electric Buses From Mercedes-Benz

EV Charging Rates For Commercial Electric Trucks, Buses, & Fast Chargers — Policies Forming

December 28th, 2018 | by NRDC

Charging an electric truck or bus at a fleet depot—or an electric car at an apartment, workplace, or a public fast-charging station—should be far cheaper than filling up on gasoline or diesel. Unfortunately, that’s often not the case at sites that receive electricity under utility rates designed for commercial buildings and industrial operations that don’t reflect the flexible nature of electric vehicle (EV) charging. To remedy this mismatch, Southern California Edison (SCE) and Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), two of the largest utilities in the nation, have developed an innovative suite of rates designed specifically for commercial EV charging, providing significant fuel cost savings to customers who charge EVs in a manner that supports the electric grid

Denmark To Test Hydrogen Buses — But Why?

February 22nd, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

The northern region of Denmark has ordered 3 hydrogen fuel cell powered buses, at an expected price tag of almost $1 million each. In itself that is a very high cost compared to a standard Chinese BYD K9 electric bus at about $500,000, but what strikes me more is the chosen headline in the country's respected national news media: "The future is here: the country's first hydrogen buses are coming."
