ElectricCarCharging There is much to know and understand about electric vehicle charging stations since there are continues technological advances, here are some simple answers to the seemingly complicated questions concerning EV drivers today: What are electric car charging stations? Electric car charging stations are the electricity points where an EV driver can recharge the battery of his vehicle. Where are E-car charging stations located? Electric car charge stations are conveniently located at car parks , shopping centers, homes and businesses, allowing drivers to enjoy their everyday activities while recharging their electric vehicles.

Adjust your financing options: New electric charge points at The Olde House A Cornish holiday company has taken the next step in providing carbon-neutral holidays, by installing two electric car charge points. The Olde House in Chapel Amble, North Cornwall, now offer guests the chance to charge their electric cars for free from the power generated by their 1008 solar panels. The new initiative builds on the Hawkey family’s commitment to responsible tourism which has seen them convert to solar energy to power their 30 self-catering cottages, swimming pool and farm buildings. Andrew Hawkey from The Olde House said: “It typically takes a minimum of four hours for an electric car to charge, so it is ideal for owners to power their cars whilst they stay in one of our traditional cottages. “It is important to us that we do all we can to be energy efficient; all our electricity is generated by our solar panels and with the addition of these new charge points, we are looking into electric-powered vehicles for our staff to use around our farm.”

2013 Chevrolet Volt Boosts EV Range to 38 Miles Battery storage capacity increase and cell chemistry changes enable improved range DETROIT – The all-electric vehicle range of the 2013 Chevrolet Volt will be 38 miles on a single charge, providing owners with a three-mile EV range increase from the 2012 model. The miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) will increase from 94 miles to 98 miles and the total range, including extended range operation, will be 380 miles. Based on real-world experience by Volt owners since the vehicle launched in late 2010, engineers made minor changes to the material composition of the battery cell chemistry, resulting in improved performance and durability.

The 10 Coolest Solar Powered EV Charging Stations - EcoFriend The battery powered car or electric vehicle holds promise for weaning the world away from the gasoline burning engines that cause over 2300million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf electric cars have made impressive debutsincreasing the sales from 15,000 to 20,000 units in their first year and these companies are planning to increase the output to 50,000 cars in2012. Other EV manufacturers are also on the scene and the hybrids suchas the Toyota Prius already hold an impressive niche. This would drivethe utilities to dot the highways and city roads with battery chargingstations, much like we see gasoline pumps all around. Several companies have proposed solar powered battery chargingstations that could help to avoid dependence on utility power for EVcharging. Besides addressing the EV recharge issue, the deployment ofthese solar charging stations would foster wider adoption ofphotovoltaics, it would reduce cost and improve efficiency.

Stickybits Is Like Twitter For the Internet of Things (video Stickybits allows you to attach video, comments, and more to everyday objects with barcodes and share these 'bits' with the world. Imagine every object with a barcode suddenly gaining a Twitter feed, but with photos, and videos as well as comments and links. That, in essence, is Stickybits.
