Hello, Aloha, 你好, Hola, 今日は and so on!

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the State of Charge newsletter.
A monthly round-up on everything electric. Expect electric cars, new energy, climate, exciting tech and the odd rant. The renewable energy transition is the most important transition of our lives but unfortunately, it goes largely unnoticed by most people. No surprise really, it tends to get technical and booooring pretty quickly. So we think it’s high time for a digest that cuts through the jargon and curates the best stories, podcasts, and videos in one concise monthly overview. Thanks for reading with us, and we hope you enjoy this first edition. The Future is Electric!

SoC Must Read 

A long read this month about the daunting effects of climate change in Australia. The original research paper can be found here, first published in Nature. The paper describes a series of sudden and catastrophic ecosystem shifts that have occurred recently across Australia.

These changes, caused by the combined stress of gradual climate change and extreme weather events, are overwhelming the ecosystems’ natural resilience. Great write-up here. 

🤔Not completely unrelated, did you know Australia leads the world when it comes to mammal extinction rates?

SoC Other News

With the 68th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance wrapping up this week we witnessed plenty of new high-end EV news this month. Our favorites :

Following the incredible reveal of the Kalashnikov Igorek combat robot 🤖, the Russian defense builder wheels out its answer to Tesla. Although we enjoy the odd vintage aesthetics (cue the Honda Urban EV concept) it looks like it would have the aerodynamics of a brick.

More unusual-suspect-EV-news comes from household air appliances manufacturer Dyson. Last year Dyson announced their ambition to launch an EV by 2020. This week they unveiled plans for an EV development facility at Hullavington Airfield, including 10 miles of test tracks.

SoC Listen to This

A Chargetrip favorite; This American Life’s Ira Glass hosts an episode about the NUMMI car plant in Fremont California that might have saved the U.S. car industry. In 1984, General Motors and Toyota opened NUMMI as a joint venture. Toyota showed GM the secrets of its production system: How it made cars of much higher quality and much lower cost than GM achieved.
