Spin off concerning reliability and safety of electric vehicles.


Recommended Posts

It seems to me the issues are solvable. Emergency services can have big on site batteries to charge EV's and mobile battery packs that can be taken to the site of emergencies. Whilst keeping them always well charged just in case will limit other everyday use it doesn't rule it out entirely; big batteries might still be used for grid and onsite purposes whilst staying above a set reserve charge level. Here in Australia, with high levels of rooftop solar local "islanding" looks feasible - not just a way to keep emergency services operating but keeping whole areas with power by isolating them from failures of the larger grid.
