Shell Hopes To Be Net-Zero Carbon By 2050

April 18th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Royal Dutch Shell, affectionately known as Shell, wants to go net-zero carbon by 2050. The idea of an oil company going "carbon neutral" seems incredibly laughable, since they produce the stuff that produces carbon, but at the same time, if they succeed, that means a lot


Shell Transforming Petrol Station To EV Charging Station In UK

February 7th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

We somehow missed this one in October, but it's an interesting and inspiring milestone that recently crossed our desk and seemed like it needed to be covered.

What’s The Best Way To Grow Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure?

October 14th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

At first, people tend to see new technologies as updated versions of older ones. Just as early TV shows consisted of filmed radio shows or stage plays, and early websites resembled the pages of low-budget magazines, many in the mainstream media still believe that vehicle electrification will mean swapping gas pumps for charging stations

Africa’s Oil Curse, the Example of Nigeria

October 11th, 2019 | by David Zarembka

CleanTechnica has been running a number of articles on little noted negative aspects of gas/diesel vehicles. These include hundreds of US deaths annually from carbon monoxide poisoning, oil refinery explosions, 137 US oil spills last year, what to do with old oil tankers, and the 150 gas/diesel car fires daily in the US. A common concept in Africa that is not noticed in the United States or other parts of the world is what in Africa is called “Africa’s Oil Curse.”


Breakdown Of Interdependency Between Big Auto & Big Oil

October 9th, 2019 | by Gerard Reid

Some years back I visited one of the major automobile manufacturers with some investor clients of mine. We met the CTO of that particular company, who asked us "what is the biggest mistake the automobile industry has made in the last century?" Despite the varied responses from the audience, we were all surprised by his answer: "We never controlled the fuel value chain" and to that he added "and we won’t make the same mistake with electric cars."

Charging On Without A Plan In The UK

May 25th, 2019 | by Andy Miles

The UK government, like the eccentric Don Quixote, is charging on without a rational plan for charging infrastructure. What has been required since 2010 when the first viable EVs started to emerge is a central government plan and policy for charging infrastructure. In the absence of any such planning, charging points of all kinds have sprung up like weeds in a neglected garden, with no specifications for siting, for access, or for payment
