Andy Grove Piece


I mentioned earlier that Andy Grove, former CEO of Intel, is attempting to draw more attention to electric cars and electric vehicles.  In a piece published in The American, Grove says instead of striving for energy independence as we did in the 70s, we should be pursuing energy resilience by utilizing government mechanisms to encourage "conversion to electricity in a major way."  The biggest part of that for Grove is electric vehicles (like EEStor enabled cityZenns).  Here's a Grove excerpt:

We have an urgent need for a strategy that can deflect our march toward this “persisting conflict” by strengthening our energy resilience. A policy that favors sticky energy with multiple sources and that aggressively moves vehicles first toward dual-fuel mode and ultimately to running on just electricity provides the answer.

Wait til Grove finds out something on the horizon from the free market could hasten us to his plan's phase 2.

Is this the good information promised a few days ago? I don't want to seem like an ingrate, but when you say you have good information it makes one think there's going to be more than conjecture and links to web items. Alone it would be interesting and fine, but in that context it's a little disappointing.

OK, the information we are looking for is either permittivity results, or confirmation of the 200/300 acres facility eestor has purchased. Give me one or the other, and you got all of our attention...

Electrical cars are not the new concept, but in present scenario its needed to rejuvenate this idea.
