In an electric vehicle, what is regenerative braking? | Explained

The impulse to be sustainable — driven by the incessant pressure to lower our emissions — often manifests as lowering consumption and increasing reuse alongside reforms like tweaking consumer behaviour. Electric vehicles are the site of many of these changes, aided by state-led incentives and subsidies. Regenerative braking is an important mechanism in these vehicles that increases their energy use efficiency. What is braking? Braking is the mechanism by which an automotive vehicle in motion...

To Meet Electric Vehicle Goals, California Must Spend $20 Billion on Grid Updates

To Meet Electric Vehicle Goals, California Must Spend $20 Billion on Grid Updates

Isn’t California broke? I seem to remember that the impeccably coiffed Governor Newsom had, at last report, managed to take a state with a comfortable budget surplus and convert that to a staggering deficit. That makes it a bit of a head-scratcher when they adopt policies like cutting off the sale of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in favor of electric vehicles (EV). But (as always) there’s a catch. Now we learn that the state’s power grid will require $20 billion in...

As the Electric Vehicle Market Collapses, Politico Claims GOP Will Suffer From Divisive Election Topic

As the Electric Vehicle Market Collapses, Politico Claims GOP Will Suffer From Divisive Election Topic

Not to imply that Politico is desperately shilling for Joe Biden, but a new editorial by GOP consultant Mike Murphy tries to imply that Republicans opposing a proposition that has mounting problems and diminishing interest will become a poison pill for the party come November. The electric vehicle market has been a pet project of Joe Biden since he took office, and it has proven a failing enterprise since. One indicator of the wrong-headed approach was seen from Pete Buttigieg recently, as he ap...
