One week ago we had our electric hot water heater replaced with a hybrid heat pump hot water heater. Our previous hot water heater used about 15.6 kWh of electricity per day while our new one is so far using an average of 6.5 kWh/day. 1/3
COMPARING THE VALUE OF AUTOMOBILE COMPANIES

- each of these enterprises represents a value of more than $500 billion to the stakeholders represented on their Balance Sheets
is this #PHEVgate
Making fools of #EU #WLTP tests again by emitting massively more CO2 on the road than their official test figures?
Plugin hybrids are brought to you by the same motley crew of SUV #dieselmakers that fooled EU tests on #CO2 & Toxic exhaust levels in #dieselgate
BREAKING: Plug-in hybrids in new emissions scandal as tests show higher pollution than claimed
Three of the most popular plug-ins in 2020 all emitted more CO2 when tested in the real world – even when starting with a full battery
Fascinating project using a conversion kit to up battery size of a 2011 Nissan Leaf from 24 to 40kWh with a big range increase
While the original batteries are still fine a range boost means these reliable older EVs could attract more owners. Upgrade cost around £9k @cleevelyev
Our wheels for the next few weeks will be this 24kWh (now converted to 40kWh's) @NissanUK Leaf. Great range showing, can't wait. We managed to convert this in under 3 hours @cleevelyev 👌🏻
Good news. While not dead diesel share is falling across Europe & is back below the levels when Blair Brown in UK & EU generally pushed the “dash for diesel”
Our own calculations suggest it increased not decreased CO2
AUS-GE-DIESELT + Marktanteile #Diesel-#Pkw brechen in #EU15 + #Schweiz + #Norwegen ein + #Niederlande noch 4,5% #Dieselanteil + #CAR-#Studie in #WELT https://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article220711484/Diesel-Anteil-bei-Neuwagen-unter-30-Prozent.html
#Cleantech is in.. while #bigOil is now small oil!
#Tesla joins the S&P in December & its current market cap values it as the 8th biggest company on the index
& big oil which used to top the index & only dropped out of top 10 in 2019?
Have a look!

Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Trump refusing to concede: "We are beginning to look like we are a banana republic. It's time for them to stop the nonsense. It just gets more bizarre every single day and, frankly, I'm embarrassed that more people in the party aren't speaking up."
