Default End of petroleum era ?

Switch to clean vehicles or be bulldozed: Nitin Gadkari to automakers

Quote:
He held out a veiled warning, saying those supporting the government will have an advantage and those busy "minting money" will be in trouble, asking them not to approach the government later on the ground that they have a huge stock of vehicles that do not run on alternative fuel.
"Already, we are in the process of a Cabinet note where we are going to plan charging stations+ ... It is in the last stage and will be done as early as possible," he disclosed, adding that the government will soon bring in a policy on electric vehicles.
Cautioning against any dilly-dallying tactics, he said the future is not of petrol and diesel, but of alternative fuel.
"I urge you (carmakers) politely to do research. First, when I urged you for electric vehicles, you said the battery is costly. I coaxed you to start at least. Now, the batteries cost 40 per cent less. And if you start now, the cost will be reduced further in mass production. Teething trouble is everywhere," he explained.
The minister is clear that electric cars, buses, taxis and bikes are the future and India should move forward in this direction.
He sought to put the entire issue in perspective, saying imports and pollution are the twin problems as India's import bill stood at a huge Rs 7 lakh crore per annum, a big drag on the economy.

Quote:
"Now, the government has decided to start 15 industries for second generation ethanol. Ethanol can easily be produced from agro-based cotton straw, wheat straw, rice straw, bagass and bamboo. Alternative fuel is import substitute, cost effective and pollution free," Gadkari added.

It is not like electric vehicles are all that great. The lithium batteries have their own challenges, are expensive and the production and disposal of those batteries is not very environment friendly.

Also how do you get power for these electric vehicles? Dams and hydroelectric projects are not as clean as we have been made to believe. Nuclear is not acceptible to many. Coal is dirty. Renewable sources like solar and wind are not as reliable as other sources and they are still not very cost effective.

Plenty of spare thermal capacity now PLF 66% avg +night charging But EVs still way expensive unless they come out with a leasing model for battery packs amortizing cost over battery life period.

Until and unless this cheap vote garnering practice continues, whole power sector shall stay in doldrums.
