Over time more and more organizations will be able to go 100% renewable like Apple:

https://www.fastcompany.com/40554151/ho ... -right-way

Over time we will see more of this phenomena:

Because of their long range of over 200 miles, many Chevy Bolt and Tesla drivers only charge their cars during the day at work M-F for FREE, and they don't plug in at home at night. The typical commute round trip is less than 40 miles. Electricity is easily accessible and cheap, it only cost the employer about $2-5 per day to provide this benefit to their EV driving employees so they are happy to do so. It's win win win, win for the employee, win for the employer, win for the environment.

We have 200-mile EVs today at about $35,000-40,000 (Chevy Bolt and Model 3), but in just 3-5 years many EVs will have range of 300 miles (500 km). When that happens, people won't even plug in at home on weekends, so they will drive pretty much for free all year long. This does wonders for TCO calculations vs. the equivalent ICE car.

Battery cells are approximately $140 today. When cells reach $100 per kWh the world is going to change very dramatically and very quickly, not just in energy usage, but in money flow, and in politics.

Umicore voert Bel20-daling aan
Een tussenstand: de Bel20 noteert 0,6 procent lager. Grootste daler is Umicore, met een verlies van 3,1 procent naar 41,71 euro.
Het grote enthousiasme van eerder dit jaar op de materialengroep is wat weggeëbt. Dit mede door de escalerende handelsoorlog tussen China en de Verenigde Staten. UBS stipte maandag nog aan dat chemiebedrijven als Umicore, BASF en Johnson Matthey potentieel tot de grootste slachtoffers van die handelssancties behoren. Niet alleen direct, maar ook omdat belangrijke klanten in de auto- en luchtvaartsector getroffen worden.

For those of you in Europe who may not be following politics in America closely, the United States is already in a constitutional crisis. Donald Trump is trapped and he is fuming. Daily, he is talking about how he wants Mueller fired.

He will do all kinds of things to distract in the coming weeks and months. Everything will be used to distract, including Syria, North Korea, China.

Monday April 9 2018 was a very important day in this saga:

FBI seizes records related to Stormy Daniels in raid of Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office, home, and hotel suite


https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... 6e02355625

Cohen knows everything. (NY Attorney General and) Mueller will try to flip Cohen, like they did with Michael Flynn.

Trump is cornered and he is terrified. So, anything is possible.

Here Jonathan Turley explains why the Stormy case is so important and different:

And here is Trump just a few hours ago:

Didi reportedly pulls out of massive electric car order with NEVS

https://electrek.co/2018/04/11/didi-mas ... -car-nevs/

Jean Lui is the President of Didi.

Didi is huge. To get a feel for how big Didi's business is, listen to the first 1/3 of the interview below.

In this interview we learn that Didi drivers love electric cars (because electricity is cheap, they save money, vs. gasoline)

The first part of the interview talks about the size of Didi's market. At around 19:00 she talks about why Didi drivers love electric cars.

Interview recorded September 22, 2017:
