Lawrence Slade, CEO of Energy UK, on the lobby’s recent U-turn towards renewable energies. The group now supports a move away from fossil fuels, including phasing-out coal-fired power stations.

Karl-Brauer“It isn’t just being stuck somewhere without a charger, it’s also being stuck at a charger for a long time.”

Karl Brauer, senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book, reveals himself to be a true sceptic when it comes to electric transport due to charging times. He went on saying that to believe in Tesla is to be stuck in a “fantasyland,” but admits that “it’s a great place to be.”

anonym“China’s alleged decision is nothing but protectionism. The technology of the Chinese producers is lagging behind that of LG Chem and Samsung SDI. In the long term, the Chinese makers can’t win.”

Chun Taekmo, a chief fund manager of Hyundai Investments Co., continues the Korean chain of complaints against China’s recent decision to only subsidise LFP chemistry batteries, favoured by Chinese manufacturers. The issue will reportedly be discussed at bilateral trade talks this month.

Michiel Langezaal, Karl Brauer.

Michiel-Langezaal“We are the first player that builds a network fast-charging stations which are powered by 100percent renewable energy at high traffic locations along the highway. This makes the Netherlands one of the leaders in the field of electric vehicles. And this is just the beginning.”

Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned, spoke at the inauguration of the company’s 50th fast-charging station in the Netherlands. Fastned aims to have 200 stations in its home country before setting its eyes on the rest of Europe.

Karl-Brauer“The regulators are what are driving electric car production. It’s not because consumers are demanding them.”

Karl Brauer, an industry analyst with Kelley Blue Book, echoes the words of Carlos Ghosn yesterday, as he too believes that private demand follows public regulation or is at least nurtured by it.
