Peak Oil News 11/27/12

Website: MrEnergyCzar.com This is Peak Oil News for November 27th, 2012. I'm your host MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, renewable energy, electric cars and everything in between.

The Tesla Model S electric car was just named MotorTrends Car of the Year. This is the first time a pure EV has been named Car of the Year by MotorTrend. It has an EPA rated 265 mile electric range. I'm amazed at how you can charge the car 150 miles in 30 minutes. Hopefully, this type of technology will be implemented in some of the cheaper electric vehicles in the coming years. General Electric has just installed its 20000th wind turbine worldwide. They installed 3000 turbines in just the past year alone. During the past 10 years there has been a three times reduction in the cost for electricity. Most of the installations have been done in Europe and on land in the United States. I say on the land because the US remains one of the few large economies of the world ...
