VW unveils MEB platform for electric vehicles, launches ‘Electric for all’ campaign to have ‘affordable’ EVs

The modular electric drive matrix (MEB) is VW’s next-generation electric platform on which the production versions of its “I.D.” concept electric vehicles are based on.

Christian Senger, Head of the E-mobility Product Line, says that the MEB, as a dedicated electric platform, will make it possible to install larger batteries:

“The ID. will be a milestone in technological development. It will be the first fully connected electric car with full everyday utility that millions of people will be able to afford. The car holds the road really well thanks to the flat battery in the floorpan and the space inside is much more generous – we are making substantial headway with the sense of spaciousness.”

VW is going with the skateboard-like design with the battery pack sitting on the floor between the two axles.

Solar and Wind Lock-In Fossil Fuels — And That Makes Saving the Climate Harder & More Expensive

Privately, many climate and energy experts admit that the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to decarbonize energy supplies is with nuclear power.

How could they not? France and Sweden proved it.

As a result, the two nations enjoy vastly cheaper and cleaner power than solar and wind-heavy Germany and Denmark.

And yet many of the same experts proclaim publicly, “We need a clean energy mix!” — one that includes solar and wind. 

Why?

The reason has nothing to do with technology, engineering, or economics and everything to do with politics.

As a result, we are at grave risk of locking in fossil fuels and making the decarbonization of energy harder, slower, and more expensive than it needs to be.

well that's almost exactly what i've done 

i also upgraded my hvac to a much higher seer rating

my provider (florida power and light) claims to be one of the greenest outfits going

mainly they use nat gas and nuclear but they're going into solar in a relatively big way



i've glanced at their plans and map but yet to have the time/mind space to anal-yze it

At FPL, we’re committed to meeting our customers’ energy needs, now and in the future.

Element 19 (which is the number for potassium on the periodic table) shines a light on the remarkable Caltech discovery of a renewable potassium-based catalyst. The catalyst can be used for the manufacture of essential chemical products and is both sustainable and affordable. Featuring PhD student and Dow-Resnick Fellow, Anton Toutov, Professors Robert H. Grubbs and Brian M. Stoltz, postdoctoral scholar Wen-Bo "Boger" Liu, and undergrad Kerry Betz, the film aims to broadly explain the implications of the team's groundbreaking work in sustainable chemistry in an accessible way.

Green innovation: This company is growing the future of automated agriculture

 

If your goal is to create a stable food supply on Earth, or elsewhere for that matter, one path to steady, environmentally friendly and readily-available crops is via the indoor farm, or vegetable factory.

Consider the implications for the planet and for space exploration: Clean, low-to-no pollution agriculture that doesn’t even require real sunlight to achieve sustainable cultivation.

This is the vision at Spread, a Japan-based builder of the next generation of vegetable factories, and the company is at its next major threshold. As it prepares to open its flagship, highly automated factory in Kyoto, we look at what’s underway at Spread, and how the company stands to change the future of sustainably-produced food.

New Data Shows the Nest Thermostat Can Cut Your Heat Bill by 10 Percent

 

Just how much can you save on your utility bill if you switch to one of those Nest smart thermostats? Nest says it can finally give you an answer.

Today, Nest revealed that it had been quietly studying the energy- and cost-saving benefits of its smart thermostats since 2013—and that the results of this study are in: Over the past two years, the Nest Learning Thermostat has saved its users 10 to 12 percent on their heating bills and 15 percent on their cooling bills.

In monetary terms, Nest claims, this translates to an average savings of $131 to $145 a year. And since a brand new Nest thermostat costs $250, if you use it for close to two years, it will pay for itself, according to the company.

“No one’s been able to test this at this scale before,” says Ben Bixby, Nest’s general manager of energy services, “and to say that this thing that adds to the aesthetics of your home also pays for itself.”

Bill Gates’ Plan to Help the Developing World Profit From Its Sewage

Bill Gates walks up to the water tap, but before he can drink, his entourage pulls him to one side. One woman takes off his glasses and rearranges his hair. Another dabs on a little makeup. And, at one point, someone hands him a Mason jar.

Once it’s filled with water from the tap, he takes a sip from the jar, and a Gates Foundation photographer captures the moment. Then there’s another water-sipping photo-op with Peter Janicki, the man who offered him this drink on the outskirts in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, about 70 miles north of Seattle. “It’s water!” Gates says, with mock surprise.

Bill feigns surprise because five minutes ago, the water was human waste pumped in from a local sewage facility. It was transformed into clean water by what’s called the OmniProcessor, a new kind of low-cost waste treatment plant funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and designed by Janicki’s company, Janicki Bioenergy. On this November day, Gates is taking his first tour of Janicki’s contraption, which he believes can transform global sanitation. Using an innovative blend of steam power and water filtration, according to Gates and his Foundation, this plant can convert up to 14 tons of sewage into potable water and electricity each day.
