Electric cars, buses, even planes. They are all coming.  Vehicles are  improving all the time.   As sensors become more efficient, range is extended – and range anxiety is the one factor that puts buyers off electric vehicles.  If, as a driver, you can’t make it to the next charging point, you’re in trouble.  But for a plane?  

Let’s assume the problems of recharging can be solved.

But where is the electricity coming from to charge all the batteries.

Few countries seem to be taking a strategic view of their power generation … even those with ambitious targets for their rollout of electric vehicles.

It is government’s role to set the strategy AND create the infrastructure.  Future productivity and prosperity depend on it.  

A vision of a a carbon neutral economy is no good without the means of creating, and maintaining it.
