Of all the renewable energy sources that car manufacturers have been trying to harness to make the latest electric vehicles, the one most people would never think of is probably wind power. The idea of using wind to power a car seems like it would be impossible or at the very least very impractical. However, there are some people out there who refuse to accept the idea that wind power cannot be used to power an electric car and they have set out to prove it.

Ecotricity, a British based electricity company with big plans for wind power, is comprised of just those kinds of people. On...

There is no denying that electric cars are going to be one of the biggest components of the future of green vehicles. The ease by which they are made, compared to other green vehicle types, and the rapid technological development in the industry ensures electric’s place in history. However, where some may be content in knowing where electric is going and may decide to allow their designs remain unchanged; one company is striving to radically alter the way electric cars are charged. Specifically, they plan to totally eliminate the need to plug in and charge electric cars.

Two weeks ago ,I wrote about how Eurostar, the company responsible for running much of the Channel’s rail traffic between England and France, planned to invest a sizable sum for the purchase of several high speed electric trains from the German engineering firm Siemens. While the announcement came as a bit of a shock for certain French officials, many others rejoiced in the news that Eurostar was planning on bolstering their green transportation portfolio. In a similar announcement, Amtrak has stated that they are now planning on commissioning...

As renewable energy moves steadily into the future, the possibilities that exist thanks to tidal and wave energy are becoming more and more widely accepted by countries hoping to adopt such technologies. While tidal and wave based projects are found around the globe, Europe has been home to several for example, the United States has traditionally preferred to avoid such projects in favor of wind and solar based energies. However, considering the amount of locations found within the United States, particularly in the Northeast, that...

As electric vehicles continue to spread throughout the marketplace to individual consumers, governments and business are also looking into how they can best use electric vehicles to clean up their motor fleets. In some cases, city governments are beginning to acquire electric cars for use by city workers as they carry out their day to day business. However, governments are starting to believe that simply using electric cars for daytime work does not necessarily lower carbon emissions by any significant...
