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.
