I recently figured out electric vehicle market share for 17 European countries, the US, and Japan for an ABB Conversations article I wrote (full disclosure: I am compensated by ABB for articles written on that site). The results are very interesting, in my opinion, so I figured I’d drop the charts in here as well. [...]

I cover solar energy news (and wind energy news) obsessively over on CleanTechnica. I think one of the coolest programs I’ve run across in the past couple years is a UK program to get solar power on more schools. It…
Streets should be child-friendly, don’t you think? I certainly think so, and so does Sustrans, a sustainable transport charity based in the United Kingdom.
