Excellent first energy independent vehicle event

Excellent first energy independent vehicle event

The world's first conference on energy independent electric vehicles took place at the Technical University of Delft 27-28 September. It was well timed because many major new versions are about to hit the market addressing major global challenges. For example "perpetual" solar drones and balloons at 20,000 meters will beam the internet to the 4.7 billion people without it. Tethered drones and kites will tap the stronger, more consistent winds above ground-based wind turbines to provide electricity to the 1.2 billion people without it. We learned that the 15 largest ships in the world emit the acid gases and particulates of all vehicles on earth and those tethered drones and kites are among several technologies that can make the ships totally emission free. We heard how the new solar roads will eventually cost no more than a regular road and they can provide 2.5 times the e...
