Is Carbon Fiber Material going to change the way we drive?
According to environmental scientist Amory Lovins, it is.
He starts off by explaining that our mobility fuel goes three fifths to automobiles so a great place to start would be to make the automobile oil free!
Sounds incomprehensible until you hear Mr. Lovins explain his ideas.
He goes on to explain that two thirds of the energy needed to move a car is caused by its weight. He comments, “In the past quarter century, our two-ton autos have suffered from the epidemic of obesity.”
in his comparison, the shift to Electric Vehicle will be as game changing as the shifting from small refinements in typewriters to the computers of today. We all know how that worked out for typewriter manufacturers!
Take a few minutes to watch the video of Mr. Levins from the Cleantech Forum in San Francisco. He will explain how putting the automobile on a diet, cutting the weight with the ultra lite, ultra strong, carbon fiber materials, will lead to more efficient vehicles. This in turn will make the idea of inexpensive electric vehicle production a viable option.
If you are already a believer in renewable energies and sustainable future it will help to reinforce your belief. If you are a non-believer, it just may make you rethink the possibilities!
Until next time -
“Think Green my friends, the future is closer than we think and the time for change is now!”
