Our @rivergecko twitter feed includes some of the UK electric car news but is also Clean Tech – Climate change Tech – EVs – Renewable Energy including wind and solar – clean trains and boats – air pollution – divesting from fossil fuels
I can’t help thinking it’s getting harder and harder for anyone to pretend the #ClimateCrisis isn’t happening & we really should leave the fossil fuel age behind us urgently
Still can’t be bothered with a 45% CO2 cut by 2030 Heatpumps & EV’s running on renewable energy?

@nialli @Aurelien_Piot @bobbyllew Battery size is in kWh but charging speed is in kW. Most 10-80% charges would take around
1 hr charging at 50kW
30 mins at 100kW
20 mins at 150kW
Which is why a Fiat 500 charges quicker than an i-Pace - charging speed is 2x battery size
@WYeates Looks strangely familiar Will🤔
@WYeates Sounds interesting Will.
In case I can’t attend can you ask a question for me
This map shows 2050 annual flood areas if we miss 1.5C
How wide would a 2050 Thames barrier need to be to stop flooding simply going round it? Eg Dartford to Romford is 9 miles!
Bit late on this but just read COP26 stands for the 26th “Conference of the Parties”
Not a name to build excitement or urgency really🙄
Has anyone got better suggestions?
? ESC - Earth survival conference
?SCC - Survivable climate “”
EFFAC - End of Fossil Fuel Age “”
This is impressive. Oxford Westgate Car Park has rows and rows of free to use @eConnect_UK chargers.
This video shows just a few of them, there are chargers all the way to the other side ⚡️😱🤩
@AbuDhabiDude @alex_haddock @derrickra Thank goodness I didn’t say many EV owners perceive them as unreliable and overpriced
Is that a USP?😂
@WYeates I hope i see one again too
Know just how you feel as coming back from dinner in Yorkshire last week along a rainy path at dusk we saw 30+ frogs and toads - so many had to use a torch to avoid treading on them!
The frogs were a little too jumpy to be photographed 🐸
@alex_haddock @AbuDhabiDude @derrickra At least the “second player’s” concerns that EV owners could be forced to use 1 reasonably priced reliable network on 🇬🇧 Motorways will be allayed in Tesla Superchargers are opened to other brands
Obviously Ionity will still have a monopoly on overpriced Motorway charging🤔
Here's a positive milestone for you on a rainy Friday afternoon. This week the UK has reached and surpassed 3,000 rapid charging locations for #electricvehicles.

@Cyberwest @Forbes @ForbesEurope Well written and useful piece to point those H2 lovers to.. the Guardian this week!
@AndyatAuto I suspect your “friend” would be counted as speeding. That said many of the clean air zone stretches haven’t got average speed camera enforcement.. when I went through the M4 Cardiff one I was driving at the limit in my electric Tesla as diesel Audis flew past me at 70mph+💨💨💨
Interesting electric v petrol real-life test: Audi RS e-tron GT v motorbike up the Wrynose & Hardknott Passes in the Lake District on the hottest day of the year. One won, one broke. https://bit.ly/3lbjOSc @AudiUK @GavinWard @EVAEOfficial @rightcharge @myenergiuk
