Electric vehicles impact on the oil market being overlooked?

Duke Electric Vehicles Team Breaks Guinness World Record for Fuel Efficiency

What if a car could drive anywhere on Earth on the equivalent of one gallon of gas? That’s 14,500 miles per gallon. Students on the Duke Electric Vehicles Team at the Pratt School of Engineering have built that car, powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. They call him Maxwell. And guess what? Maxwell and the […]

How Supercapacitors Could Make Batteries a Thing of the Past

Researchers recently and quite accidentally discovered something that could change the whole electric car ballgame. If their predictions are accurate, we could one day live in a world where cars can be fully charged in minutes instead of hours, and their power storage units would last decades instead of years. What is this tantalizing breakthrough […]
