Electric Vehicle Charging In Poland Taking Another Big Step Forward

June 5th, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

CleanTechnica readers may think there is a strong Polish lobby here, as news from Poland keeps popping up more and more, and you are somehow right. There is a growing number of people here who care and get involved in various ecological activities. Plus, we are lucky, as our current government chose e-mobility to be one of its flagship projects (and trust me, I am very careful in praising any government). Therefore, after I wrote about the dark side of Polish energy policy, I could start reporting brighter stories, as even other writers are doing so


Reebok’s Vision For “Recycling” Gas Stations

March 24th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

The way we think about gas stations is about to change. As the world transitions to electric vehicles, the sneakerheads at Reebok have completely reimagined the gas pump experience altogether. Reebok announces that, "more cars are relying on electricity instead of gasoline for energy. ... So what do you do with all of those perfectly-placed fuel stations in every community? Turn them into fuel for our bodies instead."


Airport Retail + Services Will Be The Model For Future EV Mega-Charging Centers

March 18th, 2018 | by Loren McDonald

Gas stations are not the model of future EV charging centers. Some of the designs or actual implementations of new/future EV charging stations, such as those from Tesla or Ionity, look nice, but in fact, they are incremental improvements rather than a leap forward. They are simply EV charging stations modeled mostly after gas station designs. But they miss the larger paradigm shift that EV charging brings to the mix


Stop Comparing The Number Of Gas Stations To EV Charging Stations

March 7th, 2018 | by Loren McDonald

There are a lot of myths, misinformation and misleading concepts when it comes to electric vehicles, frankly on all sides of the conversation. But one of the most annoying is when articles in the mainstream US press compare the number of EV charging stations to the number of gas stations.


Shell Stations In UK & The Netherlands Will Add EV Charging Stalls

February 14th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Sometimes, it's a good thing to change your spots. Shell is doing a bit of that. Shell is not a name I think of at all in terms of clean air infrastructure. More often, I reflect on the problems of the oil company in places it should not be — rainforests, the Arctic, etc. Changing its spots, Shell is offering a new face with a clean air emphasis. Shell is planning a second choice in how it fuels up cars, and it is a good thing for once. Northern Europe will see the beginning of the change. Some Shell stations in UK and Netherlands will reportedly be adding EV charging stations later this year
