Tesla-DTesla battery ageing recorded: Over 500,000 miles can be driven with a single power pack, data gathered from 286 Model S owners shows. During the first 50,000 miles, most Tesla batteries will lose about 5 percent of their capacity before the degradation slows down further.

Hydrogen from renewables: StratosFuel Inc. and Hydrogenics Corporation entered into a strategic partnership to build a 2.5 MW Zero Impact Production (ZIP) H2 facility in Palm Springs, California. It will use Hydrogenics’ PEM electrolysers to convert wind and solar energy into hydrogen once approved.
