Israel getting off of oil

The country hopes to reduce coal consumption by half again in 2022 and to phase it out entirely by 2026.

The country is also betting big on transportation by abandoning the import of gasoline and diesel-powered automobiles by 2030, allowing only electric, hydrogen, and compressed natural gas vehicles. “We are actively transferring manufacturing and power generation plants to natural gas from fuel oil, but transportation is the sector showing the largest improvement through the next decade,” Luvshis said.



German electric cars

Telekom, a large European telecommunications company headquartered in Germany are putting in place a massive plan to more than double the current electric car charging infrastructure by converting their distribution boxes. The company is in the process of updating 12,000 distribution boxes in their network in Germany.

 They plan to build charging stations out of those distribution boxes – including 500 100-kW fast-charging stations.

 The rest will be level 2 charge points capable of a charge rate up to 22 kW.

 With around 10,800 public charge points in Germany at the moment, the plan alone would double the current charging infrastructure in the country.

 UPS believes the innovation will allow it to convert all 170 of its vehicles operating in the greater London area to fully electric vehicles.

 The team added onsite grid-scale batteries. The prototype installation utilizes new batteries but the team envisions used batteries from older electric delivery vehicles being given a second life as stationary storage at its charging depots to maximize the value it gets out of existing assets and reduce the need to purchase new batteries at every location, every time.
