Dear Elon Musk, Consider Poland

September 3rd, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

I have decided to write this short letter to you following rumours of a Tesla factory opening in Germany. As a Tesla fan, user and campaigner, I feel somehow obliged to tell you there are better places for your European presence (not saying Germany is a bad choice, but simply that there are better). The location I have in mind, naturally, is Poland. Here are just a few reasons behind it, in random order (or not)


Wrocław — Polish Shenzhen

July 22nd, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

There seems to be some kind of attachment I feel towards Shenzhen as I have already used it as benchmark (high one!) for some Polish activities related to e-mobility. Yet again, let me use it to praise one of my favourite cities — that is Wrocław in Poland


Wroclaw’s Electric Carsharing Program Passes 30,000 Users

July 18th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

A local news report in the Polish city where I've been living for nearly 10 years highlights that our relatively fresh electric carsharing program — Vozilla — has passed 30,000 users. Before moving to Florida a month ago, I was seeing the cars — mostly Nissan LEAFs — everywhere I went


CATL Eyes Germany For New €1 Billion Factory

June 13th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Chinese battery heavyweight CATL is reportedly looking to invest up to €1 billion into a new battery factory in Germany, according to a Bloomberg report on the matter.

Tesla Life In An Emerging Central European EV Market (Poland)

April 30th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

As reported a few days ago, my colleague Tomek Gać is "conquering" 12 Central & Eastern European countries in a Tesla. The home base — starting and ending country — is Poland, so we thought a handful of notes about Poland might be of use to kick things off


Always Have 2–3 Options (For EV Charging)

July 20th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Driving an electric car for a bit, I've learned what many an EV driver knows well: You should always have 3 — or at least 2 — charging options in mind. Also: Choose wisely. And get lucky


Cleantech Fun In Berlin — June 27

June 23rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

We're now announcing the plan for June 27, which involves some social networking, good food, and an EV charging walking tour that involves a "scathing critique" of EV charging stations, cleantech communications, and branding. Here's the schedule

Revolution Returns — CleanTechnica Conferences In Berlin, Wroclaw, Warsaw, & Lodz

April 23rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

CleanTechnica and GridHub jointly organized three conferences last year — in Berlin (Germany), Leipzig (Germany), and then Wroclaw (Poland). We had wonderful attendees, fascinating presentations and panel discussions, great partners, and a ton of fun. So, we decided to launch a big series of conferences in the coming year to keep the cleantech inspiration rolling


10 Cleantech Solutions Your City Should Implement

December 8th, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

Cities are where most of the world's people live, and they can make the move toward cleantech and away from burning up the planet go much, much — much — faster. In fact, some policies could trump critical levers like ZEV mandates, and if adopted broadly, make the ZEV transition happen faster than most of us think possible


Cleantech Revolution Sprouting In Poland — Seriously

November 3rd, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

Poland is infamous among climate hawks within Europe (including within Poland). As I say, unfortunately, it is like the Tea Party wing of the European Union. With approximately 90% of electricity coming from coal, the coal lobby is hugely powerful here — so deeply powerful that extremely smart and thoughtful people are indirectly misinformed by this industry.
