Reading Resources on Electricity, Renewables, EVs and Batteries
It’s hard to keep up with developments in renewable energy, electric vehicles and batteries. These new technologies are developing rapidly, dropping in price and starting to play a significant role in our national energy policy.
Leading thinkers are increasing saying that these three technologies are starting to grow exponentially in the marketplace and will disrupt the fossil fuels market much sooner than expected. It seems like every week there is some startling news about how strongly renewables are performing.
To get you started, here are 3 recent articles:
- China smashes solar energy records, as coal use and CO2 emissions fall once again
- The future will be battery-powered
- 75% of Trump voters want clean energy too
This is just a small sampling. To read more, I’ve assembled a list of my favorite journalists and writers, websites, websites and videos, found below.
These are exciting times in the energy world, plenty of thrills and some heartbreak too.
