Ben Pullen, the managing director of Global EVRT, led a rousing day of informative e-mobility talks for the first ever e-mobility session at Intersolar Middle East last year.

This presentation — video and text summary below — is not the freshest one from CleanTechnica Director Zach Shahan.

Tesla is moving its earnings call from the beginning of November to Wednesday, October 24. This is going to be a historic earnings call for Tesla for multiple reasons. During last quarter’s earnings call, CleanTechnica got the chance to ask some questions as well.

I'm a huge fan of the media and high-quality journalism. The free press is a cornerstone of democracy, and much more. The largest media outlets in the world have the resources, passion, and expertise to do tremendous investigative reporting that is invaluable to society. But they are dropping the ball on Tesla, misleading consumers in a highly biased manner

You can find estimates for Tesla Model 3 production left, right, and center these days. What's nice is when you can find an estimate from people with a good track record, people who did a good job estimating sales in previous months and quarters.

I drive in one of the best cities in Florida for EV charging infrastructure. Still, there are gaps. Along with education to the public that demystifies electric cars and EV charging, we must dispel many misleading myths. As clean air advocates, we need to work for change in our local communities and states.
Plug In America and the Sierra Club have made that a bit easier to actualize. They released the AchiEVe: Model State & Local Policies to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption toolkit. This policy guide details the most effective policies for growing the electric vehicle (EV) market at the state, city, and local levels

It’s been a rough few weeks for boosters of vehicle autonomy. In March, one of Uber’s pilot autonomous vehicles killed pedestrian Elaine Herzberg while she was crossing the street. A few days later, Walter Huang died when his Model X hit a highway barrier in California with the Autopilot system engaged. Mr. Huang was not the first Autopilot-related fatality: in 2016, Joshua Brown was killed in a crash while his Model S was in Autopilot mode (an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration “did not identify any defects in the design or performance” of Autopilot)

The public discussion about plug-in vehicle charging often focuses on the installation, quantity, distribution and speed of public chargers, but the data reveal that the vast majority of charging happens at home. The challenges with residential charging are best split two ways – renting vs owning and single-family homes vs multi-family housing
