We’re All In This Together – We Need To Act Together

July 10th, 2020 | by George Harvey

While we are trying to find the recipients for the trillions of dollars aimed at reviving an economy bashed by Covid-19, and trying especially hard to make sure that none of it goes to the undeserving, we might consider a way to use that money to go way beyond stimulating the economy to saving the world


Tesla [TSLA] Has A Warranty Accounting Mystery

July 10th, 2020 | by Frugal Moogal

Back in January, I explored the popular short seller thesis that Tesla is unfairly cooking its books by not accruing enough money for its warranty work. Digging into the problem, I found the site WarrantyWeek.com, an incredible resource for those interested in the world of warranties and how they work

July 8th, 2020 | by Brad Rouse

What does the US need to do to help the world prevent the worst of climate change? End the use of fossil fuels fast. Many are stepping up to the challenge with aggressive goals. The EU wants to be fossil free by 2050. Joe Biden’s campaign wants the US to be fossil free by 2050 as well, based on his stated climate policy


2.3 Gigawatts Of USA Wind & Solar Projects Get Investment From ENGIE & Hannon Armstrong

July 8th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

A little more than a month ago, I reported on an EY report, its biannual Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index (RECAI), that indicated once again the United States was #1 for renewable energy investment attractiveness. It and China are basically always at the top. A big part of this is simply the scale of opportunity in these major markets (along with the cost-competitiveness of wind and solar)

Elon Musk & Tesla: Solving Hardware Problems With A Software Mindset

July 6th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

One of Tesla’s big advantages over legacy automakers is its software expertise. Back in 2014, Tesla co-founder Ian Wright told me that Big Auto’s software tended to resemble “a dog’s breakfast.” Tesla, with its Silicon Valley roots, designed its vehicles with a unified systems architecture from the beginning


Solar Equipment Manufacturer Evolves, Tesla Model Y Availability, J.D. Power’s Tesla Evaluation — CleanTechnica Top 20

July 5th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The 20 most popular stories of last week on CleanTechnica were led by an interesting story of a solar manufacturing equipment maker moving into the solar cell manufacturing game (got that?), followed by a lot of Tesla stories, some hype for lithium-iron-phosphate batteries, Toyota announcing that it had done a horrendous job forecasting demand for the RAV4 Prime (leading to a battery shortfall and production suspension), Sydney inspiring the world by going 100% renewable (for electricity)


Is Recogni The Next Hot Autonomous Vehicle Startup?

July 5th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

In CleanTechnica's exclusive, in-depth interview with Peter Mertens, former board member of Audi, Volkswagen Group, Volvo, & Jaguar Land Rover and former R&D head of Audi (published yesterday), Dr. Mertens briefly discussed a few startups he's now on the board of. One of those was Recogni, and no offense to the others (which I'll come back to in another article), but Recogni seemed to be the one that got him most lit up

This is the 15th broadcast of CleanTechnica’s weekly news show.

Tesla [TSLA] Crushes Deliveries, And Other Thoughts

July 2nd, 2020 | by Frugal Moogal

Well, I created my own best and worst case scenarios for production and deliveries, used what I could find and a number of estimates to nail down numbers that I felt were accurate, and this morning Tesla released the actual numbers. In that last article (mostly Tesla's press release), Zach noted that the numbers would probably be a reason for some of our authors to produce long pieces on them, and
