A Better Place is a new electric car infrastructure copy that’s rolling out a whole new concept of how electric cars should work. The battery is the fuel. The founder of the company Shai Agassi explains the idea much better than I can in his TED talk embedded below. It’s an audacious idea but somehow very convincing. One key point, pertinent to this blog, is that all the electricity is sourced from renewable energy.
For even more details, you can watch Agassi’s Wired Science interview as well.
Hmmm…. maybe it’s time to invest in lithium-ion batteries.
