Comments Off on Shell Oil CEO says his next car will be electric

You know the electric vehicle era has arrived when even oil execs are giving up their gas-powered cars for battery-powered cars. Royal Dutch Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden just announced that his next car will be an electric Mercedes-Benz S550e. Beurden will be ditching his diesel car when he purchases the plug-in hybrid this September. When Beurden goes electric, he will be joining Chief Financial Officer Jessica Uhl, who already drives a BMW i3. “The whole move to electrify the economy, electrify mobility in places like northwest Europe, in the U.S., even in China, is a good thing,” Van Beurden said on Bloomberg TV. “We need to be at a much higher degree of electric vehicle penetration — or hydrogen vehicles or gas vehicles — if we want to stay within the 2-degrees Celsius outcome.” Related: Electric cars could reach cost parity with conventional cars by next year Shell is moving into the EV market, announcing in February that it will start installing chargers at its gas stations this year. Britain and the Netherlands are the first two countries that will see electric vehicle chargers at Shell gas stations with the battery charging infrastructure eventually being deployed at all of the 25,000 Shell-branded gas stations in the world. Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicts that a third of the world’s cars will be plug-in by 2040, the same year that both Britain and France  plan to ban the sale of new diesel and petrol cars.

Comments Off on Starbucks to Install Wireless Charging Stations in Stores Across the U.S.

Tired of searching for outlets to charge your devices at Starbucks? You may be in luck! The company has announced that it will roll out wireless charging stations in stores across the U.S. The decision comes two years after a successful trial of the technology in Boston and the Bay Area. The coffee shop giant will partner with Powermat , an offshoot of Duracell and subsidiary of Proctor & Gamble, to install the technology. Starbucks patrons across the nation will soon see ”Powermat Spots”–small circles implanted in tables and counters–at their favorite location. Because most devices still aren’t compatible with wireless chargers, utilizing the spots will require purchase of a fairly inexpensive adapter ring. Meet us after the jump to learn more about what this announcement means for Starbucks, and the wireless charging industry in general.
