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 – […]

When Will Supersonic Air Travel Return?

“I feel the need: The need for speed.” If you recognize this quote, then you were likely weaned on a steady diet of 1980s Tom Cruise blockbusters. Or maybe you’re just a big fan of Scientology. Either way, you might be interested – or maybe traumatized – to learn that a sequel to Top Gun […]

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.

We briefly crossed paths with NIU last year for our […]

When Will We Have Electric Cars with Solar Panels?

Electric vehicles have been in the news quite a bit lately – and we’re not just talking about a certain CEO who may soon be a fugitive from justice, tweeting out manifestos from an undisclosed location, about driving cherry red roadsters on Mars. You may have noticed that Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer NIO (NIO) finally […]

Chinese Electric Vehicle Maker NIO Files IPO

Retail investors interested in the electric vehicle market can be forgiven for thinking that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is the only company in the world that produces cars that run on electricity. The 24-7 Elon Musk show tends to drown out news about any other player in the industry. Musk’s latest stunt related to taking the company […]

The Biggest Electric Utility Company in the World

We first started thinking about the biggest electric utility company in the world when we recently wrote about how bitcoin mining works. While researching the article which focused on bitcoin mining hardware companies, we were surprised by how relevant the cost of electricity is to the profitability of bitcoin mining – which largely takes place in […]
