As someone that has been involved in the clean energy sector since 2007, I am a little embarrassed that whilst I was quick to see solar and then energy storage as massively fast paced and disruptive technologies, I was off the pace with Electric cars. Perhaps as I love cars, and hated the Prius whenever I went in one! As outlined here though in a great blog by Skeleton Technology, electric cars are not new, but they certainly are the future. And near future at that. 

We live in a time of enormous disruption, but also of very well (fossil fuel) funded inertia and misinformation. It's important we all share the reality of what is possible, if we are to keep a stable planet.
