100% Electric Transportation & 100% Solar By 2030
Dear Friends & Neighbors,

I feel compelled to share this video that I came across: This is a presentation titled “Clean Disruption: 100% Electric Transportation and 100% Solar Energy By 2030” (reposted from our sister publication Sun Is The Future), presented to AltCars Expo and Conference in Santa Monica, CA, by Tony Seba, on Sep. 19, 2014. In his matter of fact manner, Mr. Seba pointed out the historical pattern of disruptions from the past as a way to help us to envision our future of Solar-Electric-Self Driving Vehicles, below:
- Electric Motor is 5x+ more energy efficient than the internal combustion engine (ICE).
- EV energy costs are 10x cheaper than ICE vehicle.
- EV maintenance costs are 5-10x cheaper than ICE vehicle.
- Wireless charging
- Electric Motor is far more powerful than ICE.
Another functionality of the EV is its eventual autonomous feature. Along with this feature, there will be improved highway capacity and higher efficiency. This will translate to a shrinking auto industry and shrinking need of parking spaces or need of car ownerships. Solar industry has been growing exponentially 43%/year since 2000. If such growth rate continues, 100% of the energy in the world will be solar by 2030. We will be facing a new world, a cleaner, healthier, and more efficient world.
This is a piece of wonderful news! For many of you are well aware of the fact that I’ve been trying to spread the Sunshine throughout our planet (advocating for solar energy) for quite a few years now. I (and many other solar/renewable enthusiasts) believe that solar energy is ultimately the solution/ answer to our Energy-Pollution-Climate Change-International Conflicts problems. Now, we have more tangible data to point us to the time frame upon which we’d be able to arrive at the Solution Time. We all simply need to tirelessly work toward that goal and not to give up before its fruition. For Solar Energy Future is right around the corner.
