Chargedevs discusses how EVs are helping new players in the energy marketplace. Dramatic pricing changes, shifting cost structures, new demand curves and technologies that enable efficient decentralization are driving a dramatic shakeup of the energy marketplace, and new participants are adapting in their own ways. EVs make it possible to build smarter grids, including for the non-utilities that are pushing innovation.
Grist discusses ‘Million-mile’ batteries are coming. Are they a revolution?
