Electric vehicle charging predicted to become zero-emission and off-grid

IDTechEx »

Off-grid, zero-emission charging is starting to take two basic forms. First is ZE microgrids that are off-grid or capable of being islanded (using the grid as backup called “fringe-of-grid”) that charge vehicles – eventually $15 billion in yearly sales on IDTechEx analysis. Second is land and marine vehicles and aircraft progressing to being energy-independent pure-electric vehicles EIEV, another large emerging market. Delightfully, they help each other. For example, cars getting much of their electricity from the new solar bodywork are easier to charge using affordable solar charging stations. »

New York Governor announced details for 21 large-scale renewable energy projects

New York News Release »

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled the details of the awards for 21 large-scale solar, wind, and energy storage projects across upstate New York, totaling 1,278 megawatts of new renewable capacity. These projects, which New York Energy Research and Development Authority and other State and local agencies will ensure are sited and developed responsibly, will spur over $2.5 billion in direct, private investments toward their development, construction and operation and create over 2,000 short-term and long-term jobs. The awards accelerate New York’s progress towards Governor Cuomo’s Green New Deal goal to obtain 70 percent of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030, as codified by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, and supports the State mandate for a 100 percent carbon-free electricity sector by 2040.
