A Warning About Electric Vehicle Stocks

Easter European cities have had electric trams running through them for decades now. Using electricity to transport large numbers of humans on trains and buses isn’t anything new. What’s changed is that improvements in lithium battery technologies now mean we can economically electrify much smaller vehicles like passenger cars, motorcycles, or scooters. The most visible […]

Here’s Why Short Sellers Are Shorting Tesla

For the last several months we’ve been organizing the 1,700+ articles here on Nanalyze into a handy set of guides for our readers. (You can access these using the dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of this page.) During that process, we realized that we’ve never written about Tesla, aside from a few green tech […]

Hyliion – Another Electric Semi Truck IPO

One way new investment opportunities manifest themselves is through initial public offerings (IPOs). This is an event where a company decides to sell some of their shares to the general public and institutional investors who will commit to purchasing shares. During this process, the company selling shares will typically go on a “roadshow” where they […]

All About Nikola Motor Company’s Stock Offering

In our recent guide to investing in fuel cell stocks, we reflected on how the hydrogen economy hasn’t quite matured and – according to Elon Musk – shouldn’t ever mature. Battery-powered vehicles seem to be working out just fine, so why reinvent the wheel? At least one company disagrees with Mr. Musk. Nikola Motor Company […]

A Guide to Investing in Fuel Cell Stocks

We recently published a piece on how hydrogen fuel cells might be used to power drones that carry humans, leading one of our readers to remark, “not the ‘hydrogen economy’ again!” We share those sentiments, having watched fuel cell technology take off at a crawl with no widespread adoption apparent. While fuel cells are being […]

WiTricity and Wireless Charging for Electric Vehicles

Seems like wireless charging ought to be a thing by now, at least for smartphones. If someone sold a $100 device that would automatically charge your phone within “Wi-Fi distance,” we’d probably all have one in our homes. Is it a big conspiracy by the phone companies so they can continue selling us over-priced charging […]

A Durable 2X2 Electric Utility Vehicle From UBCO

A few years ago we did a piece on electric motorcycles which proved to be quite popular with our readers. In that article, we looked at the Harley Davidson electric bike (now available for $30,000), the world’s fastest motorcycle which happens to be electric (built to order according to your specs and starting at $38,888), and some […]

Is Ehang IPO the Best Bet for Urban Air Mobility?

Remember Taxi Magic? No, it’s not a strain of cannabis. (You’re probably thinking of Somali Tax Ride, which itself sounds like a questionable sex act that shouldn’t cost you more than a fiver.) Taxi Magic was an app that allowed you to hail a taxi on demand. That was back in 2008, about a year […]

Investing in Gallium Nitride and Silicon Carbide

Write about technology for a while and you’ll be tempted to think you’ve heard about all the latest and greatest stuff. Prepare to be humbled. There’s just so much going on these days it’s impossible to keep up with it all. Not all technologies that sound great will be commercially successful and not all are worth […]

Investing in Public Electric Vehicle Charging Networks

The world’s largest public electric vehicle charging network today is made possible by a company called ChargePoint that’s taken in a whopping $532 million from investors like Chevron, BMW, Toyota, Siemens, Daimler, and American Electric Power, to build a network of more than 60,000 electric vehicle (EV) chargers. Gas-powered cars need gas stations, and electric vehicles need charging stations.
