Researchers Innovate to Increase EV Drive Time – By Olivia Rosane – March 2018
Transportation is now the number one contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, as EcoWatch reported in December. That’s why it’s good news that researchers revealed this week that they are making headway in developing innovations that would increase the amount of time electric vehicles spend on the road before having to be recharged.
Top Clean Cars and Trucks of 2018 – By Josh Goldman – February 2018
Some of the cleanest cars you can buy today are powered by electricity, though the emissions of an electric vehicle (EV) varies depending on where it is plugged in. Even though parts of the U.S. still partially rely on coal fired power, the average EV sold in the U.S. produces the emissions equivalent of a gas vehicle that gets 73 MPG, and more than 70 percent of Americans live in an area where driving an EV results in fewer emissions than a 50 MPG gas-powered vehicle.

Good News: EVs Are Not Crashing the Grid By Noah Garcia – January 2018
“Clean up the grid. Electrify everything.”
That’s a brief summary of what Southern California Edison and a growing number of U.S. electric utilities are aiming for to decarbonize the power and transportation sectors in a mighty one-two punch. Some may worry that charging hundreds of thousands–and then millions–of electric vehicles (EVs) will spell trouble for electric grid maintenance and reliability. However, a new analysis of real world data from California brings good news: EVs are not crashing the grid.
