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. […]

Electric Ferries Are Sailing Under the Radar

A fair number of us feel tension while flying because society makes sure that we’re all immediately notified whenever a plane falls out of the sky. The worst airline accident ever recorded took place back in 1977 when two planes collided on a Tenerife runway after the pilot confidently said “oh yeah…” when his flight engineer asked him – […]

8 Electric Airplane Startups Trying to Get Off the Ground

You might think that electric cars didn’t really exist until Tesla hit the scene with its sporty Roadster around 2008. The reality is that the first electric vehicle was invented way, way back in the 1830s when a Scottish inventor came up with an electric carriage powered by non-rechargeable primary cells. Of course, it took […]

Why Did Electra Meccanica and Arcimoto Stocks Soar?

One of the problems that we face when talking about “green technology” and the environment is that it’s nearly impossible not to step on a political landmine these days. Because United States politics have become so divisive now, even caring for Mother Nature has been commandeered into a political talking point. Some publications that cover green […]
