Advocacy Group Says Canada Can Only Meet Climate Change Targets If it Manufactures EVs

The automotive world is headed towards electrification, and several countries have announced plans to fully electrify their roads over the next few decades. Canada, however, is facing a unique challenge. The country has seen a 37% (approximately a million vehicles per year) drop in vehicle manufacturing over the past two years, but curiously carbon emissions have increased by nearly 30%. Turns out Canadians are partial to SUVs and trucks that guzzle a lot of fuel and emit a lot of carbon. Canada has been ranked at the top for tailpipe emissions, but despite the increase in vehicle pollution, vehicle manufacturing has…

UK Moves Planned Fossil Fuel Vehicle Ban to 2030

Vehicles running on fossil fuel have had a pretty good run over the past few decades but it’s become very clear that they do more harm than good to the environment. In a bid to reduce and ultimately eliminate carbon emissions, multiple governments have pledged to phase out the sale of conventional vehicles over the next decade or two. Originally, the UK was planning on banning the sale of new fossil fuel-powered vehicles in 2040, but it is now poised to bring forward the ban to 2030 in a move designed to speed the rollout of electric vehicles (“EVs”) in…

Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) Promises to Go All-Electric by 2030

Over the next decade or so, most developed countries plan to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles in exchange for electric vehicles (“EVs”). Not only do they run on clean energy, but EV’s have zero emissions, making them perfect for drivers who are keen on reducing their carbon footprint. Rideshare giant Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) recently announced an ambitious plan to have “100 percent” of rides take place in electric vehicles by 2030 in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and it is using an interesting strategy to achieve it. Instead of directly paying drivers to trade their fossil-fuel vehicles for…

Strategic Reasons to Switch to an Electric Vehicle

Electric cars have come from being unknown and are becoming famous as the days go by. Electric vehicles (“EVs”) are becoming popular in big cities, and it’s high time you started thinking of getting one for yourself. Car manufacturers are also going for something more sustainable and friendly to the environment. Here are some of the reasons why you should switch to an electric vehicle: Affordability is always appealing to most people looking to buy a car. Even if the oil price drops further, charging your electric vehicle is less expensive than fueling petrol and diesel cars. Your EV can…

Australian Government Earmarks $3.5M to Lower EV Charging Costs

Like most developed countries, Australia is planning on phasing out internal combustion-engined vehicles in exchange for environmentally-friendly electric vehicles over the next decade. Back in 2019, the Labor Party revealed an “ambitious” plan to have 50% of all new car sales be EVs by 2030. At the time, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (“FCAI”) said that “anything is possible” provided the required infrastructure and buyer incentives are made available. The Australian government has since committed $21 million in funding to public charging infrastructure through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (“ARENA”). In June, Australian electric charging provider Jet Charge received…

Toyota and Subaru to Collaborate on Fully Electric SUV

Electric car enthusiasts are in for a treat after Toyota recently filed a patent for a fully electric Toyota SUV which looks quite similar to a Subaru concept shown earlier this year. Back in April, Japanese auto website Spyder7 revealed the name of a medium-sized crossover SUV that Subaru had co-developed with Toyota, the Subaru Evoltis. Subaru had trademarked the Evoltis moniker in the United States and Spyder7 claimed that the vehicle could make its world debut as early as October 2021. The website claimed at the time that the car would be based on an unnamed concept vehicle Subaru…

AI and IoT Solutions Could Boost EV Customer Experience

The electric vehicle (“EV”) industry represents one of humanity’s greatest attempts at cutting down on carbon emissions and making sure the planet remains habitable for future generations. However, carbon based energy has powered humanity to civilization, and the young electric vehicle industry has a long way before seeing 100% adoption. For that to happen, EVs must become more affordable and efficient than internal combustion engine vehicles. Unlike conventional vehicles, EV makers haven’t had decades to research and perfect their technology. It's still a work in progress, with firms constantly tweaking and improving on the technology to make it more efficient…

Are Sun-Tracking and Transparent Solar Panels Close to Becoming a Reality?

Solar energy will play a crucial role as governments phase out carbon-based energy in favor of green energy. They are more mainstream than wind energy and electric cars, and they have been around for much longer. Despite that, however, solar has a long way to go before it can fully replace conventional energy sources. Sure, solar energy is clean, renewable and doesn't harm the environment. And for the past few years, the market has enjoyed an average annual growth rate of 49%. But, solar still represents a tiny portion of the U.S. energy market with renewables as a whole making…

How the Ongoing Pandemic Has Affected the Renewable Energy Sector

It will be years before most industries recover to pre-pandemic levels. While certain select industries like online marketplaces and video call platforms have weathered the storm fairly well, sectors such as airlines and food service shouldered the brunt of the coronavirus. As coronavirus cases remain on the rise and people stay sequestered in their homes, the economy is sure to decline even more. The renewable energy market, on the other hand, has had a rough go at it, and the industry's ultimate fate will be determined by how the world handles the coronavirus pandemic. Like most industries, the biggest threat…
