Climate Launchpad 2017 Startup Spotlight: Go To-U

November 19th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

We originally connected with the Go To-U team as we were planning our Cleantech Revolution Tour event in Berlin, Germany, and Wroclaw, Poland. Then Andrea and I met them in Cyprus during this Climate Launchpad Grand Final event. And we collaborated yet again for our recent EV charging conference in Warsaw, Poland


eMotorWerks JuiceBox Pro 40 EVSE Review (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

November 19th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

On paper, it appears that eMotorWerks' JuiceBox is the most advanced and intelligent Level 2 EVSE ("EV charger") on the market today. As such, we were excited for the opportunity to spend some quality time with the JuiceBox Pro 40 to see if it lived up to the hype


Boosted Boards Dual+ Generation 2 Review (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

November 5th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Boosted Boards is widely known as the leader in electrified skateboards. The very usable design — with 7 miles of range, an intuitive controller, and rider-friendly specs — made the first Boosted Board a winner off the line. It was more than capable as an around-town commuter board, a solution to the last mile for many transit riders, and perhaps most importantly, just a ton of fun to ride


sonnen Restores Power To Puerto Rican Communities With Microgrid Donations

November 4th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Tesla (and FEMA) have garnered most of the press for relief efforts aimed at restoring power to Puerto Rico. Certainly, Tesla and FEMA have been involved in relief action (and inaction), but they are far from the only players in the game. Others have also launched efforts to restore power to the island nation. Sonnen launched its Puerto Rico Energy Security Initiative (PRESI) with the specific aim to restore power to a number of communities around the island nation with microgrid technology.


Climate Launchpad Startup Spotlight: One Computer

November 4th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Two Persian brothers operating out of Estonia aspire to compete with the likes of Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud computing game but don't want to buy any servers to do that. They have plans to utilize the massive amount of idle internet-connected computing power that charging smartphones represent. Put simply, they want to pay you to use your smartphone's processing power while you sleep


Climate Launchpad 2017 Startup Spotlight: Sun Mill

November 4th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

The team over at Climate Launchpad brought Andrea and me over to Cyprus for the epic Climate Launchpad Grand Final this year and we were blown away by the stretching solutions posed by the 105 startups in attendance


Chanje & eMotorWerks Deploy New Energy-as-a-Service Vehicle Charging Platform For Fleet Operators

October 31st, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Electric delivery truck manufacturer Chanje and intelligent EVSE manufacturer eMotorWerks are partnering on a new energy-as-a-service (EaaS) program to downstream fleet customers. The new program looks beyond just billing customers a flat rate per kWh and leverages the intelligent, connected eMotorWerks chargers as part of Chanje's core strategy to offer a complete energy service to customers


The Power Of Individual Action (aka Why We All Need To Educate Ourselves & Take Action)

October 28th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

The reason I started reading CleanTechnica many years ago was that it was focused on action. It was focused on taking the problems we have with climate change and our environment today and sharing what people are doing to solve them. They talked about solutions I could put in place today and how they would make the world a better place


Kia Soul EV Review (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

October 28th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

I recently reached out to Kia to see if I could spend some quality time with the Kia Soul EV. It is a funky-looking vehicle that packs a surprising 93 miles of range. As a first-generation EV for Kia, that speaks to the brand’s desire to deliver a product that packs the most bang for the buck for its customers. Having said that, the Kia Soul EV does fall short compared to the generation of new electric vehicles hitting showroom floors today, like the Hyundai Ioniq with its 124 miles of range and the Chevy Bolt at 238 miles of range


Tesla Model 3 Interior, Touchscreen, Center Console … (Model 3 Owners Club Deep Dive Part 2)

October 28th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Trevor from the Tesla Model 3 Owners Club reached out to us for a sneak peak at a video they put together that dives deep into just about every nook and cranny of a brand new, first-run Pearl White Tesla Model 3 Long Range. To do the video justice, we broke the video out into 3 segments that cover roughly 20 minutes each. Following up on Steve's article, I will be diving into the interior and touchscreen details, and then Zach will dive into control stalks, the keycard & app, windshield wipers, driving experience, and a bit more
