Nissan Leaf Taxi Pilot Launched In New York City

This article originally appeared on EV Obsession. Nissan and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg have now officially launched the NYC Nissan Leaf pilot program, setting the 6 Leaf taxis loose on Earth Day. “This is at least the second public taxi test of the Nissan Leaf,” Nicholas notes over on sister site Gas2.

Oil-Rich Russia Works To Increase Renewable Energy Share… A Bit

The Energy Ministry of Russia has submitted a draft law to Dmitri Medvedev that is intended to support the deployment of renewable energy sources, including solar power, wind power, and hydroelectric power. Russia failed to meet its 2010 renewable energy target, which was to obtain 1.5% of the country’s electricity demand from renewable power plants. (In 2011, it had yet to reach 1%.) There are currently no details available about tariffs for specific technologies. Notably, however, … Read More

Issa No Longer In To 'Sperm-Shaped' Electric Car He Pushed For?

This article originally appeared on Think Progress. By Ryan Koronowski In a contentious hearing yesterday, the House GOP members of the House Oversight Committee aggressively questioned Fisker Automotive executives and an Energy Department staffer about a loan Fisker received from the Energy Department. The attacks were reminiscent of those made in hearings on Solyndra and were more of a reflection of the committee's hyperpartisan agenda than any real oversight duty. It also suggested some hypocrisy as GOP lawmakers attacked the … Read More

Ohio Manufacturers Fight To Keep Energy Efficiency Standards

This article originally appeared on Think Progress. By Aviva Shen Ohio is one of many states trying to scale back energy efficiency standards set for utility providers — even though these standards have lowered costs and reduced energy consumption by customers, according to the Ohio Manufacturers' Association. OMA, the state's largest manufacturing trade group, is fighting against Republican-led efforts to weaken the laws that require utilities providers help customers use less electricity. The laws set a deadline of 2025 for electric utilities to … Read More

GreenTech Automotive & JAC Motors Team Up For 100% Electric Car Assembled In US

This article originally appeared on EV Obsession. Here’s an interesting announcement from Shanghai, but partly from a US EV company. Like with CODA, the effort seems to target delivering a relatively cheap and “somewhat made in America” all-electric car. But the question is whether or not it will be able to compete with the very low-cost Nissan Leaf and the hotter than hot Tesla brand (which plans to unroll an affordable EV within a few … Read More

Can Fossil Fuel Divestment Prevent The Carbon Bubble From Bursting?

Could divestment, the same movement that brought down Apartheid, be the key to ending America's fossil fuel addiction and preventing the next great financial crisis? Activists at more than 400 colleges, cities and states, and religious institutions think the answer is yes - and San Francisco may have given the fossil fuel divestment campaign its biggest win to date.
