Charging your electric car at home

Charging your electric car at home or workplace is readily feasible. Most such vehicles have a charging unit inbuilt. Check with the vehicle maker for charging options available. This article about charging your electric car at home gives some indication of how many...
Electric Vehicle Batteries

Electric Vehicle Batteries

The market for quickly-rechargeable, light and compact batteries is huge. One or another battery will eventually evolve. When it does, electric-only vehicles are likely to have a range unthinkable using fossil-fuels. Moreover, in the meantime, hybrids are an excellent compromise. Furthermore, see also Electric Vehicles – Hybrids.

Electric Vehicle Motors

Electric Vehicle Motors

Electric vehicle motors AC/DC Electric vehicle motors use on or other of the two main kinds of electricity: alternating current and direct current. Both are effective as electric vehicle motors. Alternating Current (AC) is where electric current constantly reverses...

Electric Vehicle – thermodynamic efficiency & emissions Regardless of how fuelled, all road vehicles emit pollution in two main forms. Those that cause and health issues. e.g. haze and particulate matter and ‘greenhouse gasses’ such as carbon dioxide and...
Electric Vehicles Energy Use

Electric Vehicles Energy Use

Electric-only vehicles of today are most suited to urban driving, but as battery technology inevitably advances, and charging facilities increase, these will be decreasing issues.

Electric Vehicle Hybrids

Electric Vehicle Hybrids

Electric vehicle hybrids Electric vehicle hybrids are powered by either or both electricity and fossil fuel. They are far from new. In 1898, Ferdinand Porsche developed a hybrid car (the Lohner-Porsche). Its petrol engine ran a generator powering electric motors in...
Fuel cells for homes and properties

Fuel cells for homes and properties

Fuel cells for homes and properties provide clean silent electricity. High current prices hinder their acceptance, but this may soon change. Fuel cells enhance solar. Furthermore, they may all but eliminate our need for battery storage. Fuel cells hugely reduce harmful emissions.

Convert to your own all solar home

This vital easy to read guide shows you how to convert to your own all solar home at minimal cost. You can readily do this in much of the world between 50-degree latitudes north/south. This easy to read article shows that doing so can save you thousands of dollars. 

Why the move to electric vehicles

It is now virtually certain that about half of all cars will be electric by 2030. The current part fossil-fuel/part electric hybrids will be phased out as battery storage technology advances (to provide comparable range) and the recharge network becomes global.
