Another article that just came out with a great graph comparing the Model 3 to its competition.

There is a pretty misinformed article on BBC today about autonomous vehicles. When I wasn't laughing at what they missed, I was laughing at spelling and gramatical mistakes.

From the Tesla Q2 Results that were just released:

Amazing

Quote:
Since the handover event last week, we are averaging over 1,800 net Model 3 reservations per day
Also, spread this to every family and friend you know. Who has the safest cars on the road? Tesla.

Quote:
In June, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded Model X a 5-star safety rating, the first such achievement for
any sport utility vehicle. Significantly, Model X achieved a 5-star rating across the board on all nine subcategories covering frontal, side,
and pole impacts for the driver-side, passenger-side, and rollover tests. This is the second-best set of test results for any car ever tested
by NHTSA, behind only Model S, which received the lowest probability of injury score ever.

Pretty good summary of what's going on from within the O&G industry, although the authors time is a bit off. It'll happen quicker than they estimate because of falling battery prices and fast battery ramp-ups.

While the article says it's an outliner case, this is another example of utility storage starting to take shape:

The company will purchase two 1-megawatt/4-megawatt-hour storage systems from AES for the small town of Punkin Center.
Quote:
The traditional approach, which APS considered, would be to upgrade the 20 miles of 21-kilovolt cables that service the town. That requires construction through hilly and mountainous terrain, with considerable expense and local disruption.

The utility decided that batteries would be cheaper.

Excellent presentation on Energy. The only thing I would critique is that he says Tesla just puts Panasonic's cells in their powerwalls which is not entirely true - Tesla uses its own chemistry and package design which enables them to beat all other competitors.
