More than 50% of the world's commute miles are done on dirty, polluting two-wheelers, which are ubiquitous in emerging economies. I talk with the guy trying to decarbonize them with banks of swappable batteries.
The reason that Volts is the best place anywhere on climate change issues is because so much of it is about solving problems. Everyone who can be convinced that it's a problem has already been convinced. We need solutions, and thank you David for shedding light on what smart people around the world are doing.
If we're going to beat this thing, we need a lot more optimism and energy than apocalyptism.
Marc, you are so right about how Volts is all about solving problems. But how do you solve a problem like Joe Manchin?
This is sure needed in places like Bangkok!
Autonomous delivery scooters.
That was beautiful! Thank you David for bringing this to my attention. Someone working the problem. Earth Day here just seemed like more of the same polarized screeching.
Horace mentions the chaos of Taipei, etc. How 'bout the chaos of public EV charging here. We have a little new PHEV and there are multiple chargers where we go, but attempts to utilize them have been largely unsuccessful.
Mr. Luke wrote Microsoft software for Windows, then fabricated his own cell phones, which he sold a lot of. He definitely is smart; but to have a 13% share of Taiwan's two- wheeler market, which is all electric by his manufacturing genius is phenomenal. Mr. Luke truly cares about global warming and thank God that he is doing something about it.
Listened before I saw this. Thanks for the picture. It clarified the battery changing stations and vending machine model talked about.
