- The way it is
- The future of car power will be determined by an agenda that prioritises environmental issues over and above the pursuit of profit. Although, of course, profit makes for incentives and enables continued development.
It has been recognised for many, many years that petrol and diesel guzzling vehicles are polluting the atmosphere. Environmentalists have been tirelessly sounding the alarm as our atmosphere becomes, year by year, ever more toxic.
What’s more fossil fuels are non-renewable, the supply will eventually dry up.
The air that we breathe, especially in crowded cities, is poisonous and causing untold health problems to millions of residence. Something has to be done, someone has to listen and act now.
Fortunately, governments and manufacturers are starting to take notice of the environmental warnings and the need to find a renewable sustainable alternative.
Slowly, gradually the problem is being addressed.
- What are the options?
A recent, quirky, solution has been proffered by an inventive entrepreneur; he’s found a way to extract fuel from left-over coffee granules. And, it works!
There are many alternative potential propulsions solutions to hand, these include the use of:
- Compressed air
- Renewable Biofuels
- Nitrogen and hydrogen
- Kinetic energy
Oh, not forgetting chicken fertiliser!
Through innovative research and technology many new sources have been proven, at the very least, to reduce toxic emissions. Car manufacturers have turned their attentions, big time, to the pollution issues.
Some have developed, and included, one or more of the above solutions, working in unison with the petrol drive. Harmful emissions are thus alleviated but not replaced.
However, the winning lottery ticket appears to be number 7! Electricity.
- The electric future
There can be little doubt that the future of the car industry lies in the energy produced by electricity.
The ongoing development of electric transport is now heavily backed by both governments and car manufacturers. The race is on!
The technology is in place, electric cars are on our streets. Although many are hybrid types with electricity power backed-up by a traditional combustion engine. But expect this to rapidly change.
Currently electric battery power will keep a car moving from between 200-300 miles before requiring a charge; not bad for everyday run-around use.
However, as more and more big hitting investors become involved the more efficient and long lasting the battery output will become.
Electricity power is a substantially cheaper source of energy. Furthermore it’s environmentally friendly, less messy the car can be charged from your domestic mains supply over night!
- Taking the next step
More and more roadside electric car charging points are appearing around the country. However, should you be considering buying an electric car, or would merely like to future-proof your home, then first check out how to install a safe home power supply.
