A Chicken and Egg Situation that needs some sorting

 

CLIMATE CHANGE - The United Nations' climate talks (known as COP OUT = Conference Of the Parties) took place in December 2019. During these global discussions action for climate policy is negotiated. The 25th COP-OUT took place in Madrid, Spain after Chile had to hand the torch over as a result of riots caused by transport cost rises. The main players continued to indulge in Red Flag politics, to buy themselves more time to plunder planet earth. In 1865 the British Government was bribed by the railways and stagecoach companies to pass the Locomotive Act, designed to prevent the development of horseless carriages, to enable the existing businesses to continue with their transport monopolies.

 

The 24th climate summit took place in Katowice, Poland. Before the event started, 50 high profile companies published an open letter to the UN calling for more action to curb climate change. So far with over twenty-five years of haggling the arctic ice is still melting - and faster than ever. No wonder so many high profile people and corporations are worried. In the UK we we are still granting planning consents for houses without solar panels or electric vehicle charging points. What are our politicians like? It's criminal. But who elected them. Yes, you did. And that brings us to Brexit. With the natural world crumbling from our carelessness, do we really need so much in-house fighting. United we stand, divided we fall.

 

 

EEVC EUROPEAN ELECTRIC VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE CONVENTION

 

This is an important venue to discuss what is working and to think about ways to implement a practical future infrastructure for electric vehicles that are battery, fuel cell or hybrid operated, such as statute that perhaps should be introduced elsewhere like the Automated and Electric Vehicle Act 2018.

 

 

1:20th scale model of an electric truck refuelling station using universal energy cartridges

 

MODEL 1:20 - April 6 2020, a model of the service station is under construction, shown here with two Mercedes articulated container trucks inside. We are using plywood for the building and some of the working parts - that cannot be shown due to patent law prohibiting prior publication. The Automated & Electric Vehicle Act 2018, makes it law in England that provision must be made for charging and refuelling of electric vehicles at service stops. This system would more accurately be described as a refuelling point - since the energy exchanges for trucks and cars are virtually instant. The building can be a quarter this size for city locations where space is limited. But for load levelling purposes, the larger the capacity of stored electricity, the more efficient the grid.

SMARTCHARGE - Hydrogen fuel cell of battery powered electric land speed record car

 

 

SMART-CHARGER - Potentially the world's fastest electric car powered by hydrogen energy cartridges and fuel cells. This streamliner is theoretically capable of a shade over 400mph using the latest production electric motors. She is designed to beat Ford's 207mph, at Pendine Sands in the UK and then 350mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA, so giving the Buckeye Bullet 2 hydrogen team a run for their money. Featuring built in energy cartridge refuelling, as per the Automated and Electric Vehicle Act 2018, and charged using renewable solar energy. A project to celebrate the banning of petrol and diesel cars in Europe and the UK from 2030 - fingers crossed.
