Daily Energy Insider delivers the latest news and information on all aspects of the U.S. energy sector, including recent developments, industry trends, data analysis and policy-making.
Austin Energy focuses on innovative solutions to help city of Austin meet clean energy goals:
https://dailyenergyinsider.com/news/986 ... rgy-goals/

Starts:
Austin Energy is working to further strengthen its partnership with the city of Austin to advance its clean energy vision and cement its status as one of the nation’s leading smart cities.

The publicly owned electric utility was recognized in December when the publication SmartCities Dive named Austin Energy “Utility of the Year” and one of the industry’s top innovators and disruptors. Austin Energy was singled out for supporting the city’s goal of meeting 65 percent renewable energy generation by 2027, the release of a two-way outage map and alert system, the launch of an electric vehicle charging hub called Electric Drive and increased access to solar energy.
(Hehe... Austin is a SmartCities Dive...) :mrgreen:

Includes:
Located in the Seaholm EcoDistrict of Austin, Electric Dive encompasses 400 meters of street to present sustainable mobility as a transportation mode to residents. A showcase for clean energy, the renovated street features a kiosk with innovations to engage and educate residents about solar energy and electric bicycle charging, while providing a “fast charger” which charges electric vehicles in minutes instead of hours. All of the charging stations are powered by Texas Wind, furthering the renewable and clean energy goals, Popham said.
Guess folks in Austin have some sort of fancy AC electrical outlets? :lol:

... and the quickest "fast charge" I know of is just swapping packs. :wink: (Also, that any "fast" charging of most any chemistries is... "not the best" for lowest costs per mile overall.)

And of course, there are countless chances to be distracted by new uses for old ideas and defunct names. For example, look for the "OjO Commuter Scooter" (pictured) at the Ford booth. Ojo was also the name of a videophone for a face-to-face, web-based video calling system, unveiled in 2004, the last gasp from the legendary Hal Krisbergh's WorldGate Communications. WorldGate had started as an interactive TV provider, but eventually moved on to its Ojo device, which was heavily promoted to the cable industry before WorldGate filed for bankruptcy in 2012.

The Ford-licensed OjO Commuter Scooter, built by Oxnard Electric, is a 65-pound bike-scooter hybrid that the company said complies with the rules and guidelines of the electric bicycle market.

Don't get your OjO mixed up with your Ojo.
(AFAIK, "ojo" = Spanish for "eye"?)

Anywhooo... the OjO "commuter scooter" has it's own website:
https://www.ojoelectric.com/

Maybe their next scooter will be easier to pedal. :lol:

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is Western Pennsylvania's largest newspaper and post-gazette.com is the region's most visited news website, together reaching nearly 1 million people each week. The Post-Gazette provides unparalleled reporting and commentary on Pittsburgh's sports teams - the Steelers, Penguins, Pirates and the University of Pittsburgh - plus award-winning local, national and international news coverage about ebikes and stuff.
Pittsburgh hosts mobility showcase in Oakland:
http://www.post-gazette.com/local/regio ... 1801020125

Starts:
To get around the Pittsburgh region, many residents don’t think beyond their car, public transportation, a bicycle or maybe the occasional Uber or Lyft.

In an effort to broaden those options, the city will hold the Western PA Mobility Showcase on Thursday at the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland. The event, described as a trade show for companies that provide mobility options, will feature at least 16 providers, said Karina Ricks, director of the city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure.
(Wiki: Oakland is the academic and healthcare center of Pittsburgh and one of the city's major cultural centers. The neighborhood is home to three universities, museums, and hospitals, as well as an abundance of shopping, restaurants, and recreational activities.)

Includes:
The free showcase will include representatives of self-driving vehicles, electric vehicles, bicycles, shared-ride providers and public transit, among others. Hyperloop One, a California-based company developing pods that use low-pressure tubes and magnetic force to carry people and freight at 700 mph, also will participate.
Local ebike retailers might wanna "jump on this"? :mrgreen:

... and those crazy Hyperloop folks plan to show up? :roll: (ESB "Search found 119 matches: Hyperloop")... :(

Singletrack is a UK-based mountain biking magazine and web site. The magazine is aimed at more mature mountain bikers and intended to provide a counterpoint to magazines such as MBUK which are aimed at a younger audience.
... and:
Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain.

3. Someone Will Launch A Sensible Finance Option For e-Bikes

Cities eye zero-emission futures:
https://en.brinkwire.com/66570/cities-e ... n-futures/

Starts:
Oxford, England, prides itself on its plentiful number of bicycle commuters, as noted by its signs at the city limits that read, “Welcome to the city of Oxford, a cycling city.” In a recent survey, Oxford came in second among British towns with 22 percent of locals riding three or more times a week. Now, the city plans to pedal further ahead by becoming the world’s first zero-emission zone by 2035.

After discovering that 75 percent of Oxford’s pollution came from traffic, the city and county councils decided to create a low-emission zone. Since 2014, only low-emitting vehicles have been allowed within city limits. Buses, a main source of air pollution, began to switch over to low-emission and hybrid fleets. In the past 10 years, Oxford has seen its air pollution drop by one-third.
Oxford’s next target: no pollution. At first, the zero-emission zone will just govern the city’s center, about half a square mile. It will be gradually expanded until the zone covers the entire city by 2035. Gas or diesel vehicles that enter the designated zone will be fined.

... and:
Ministry plans subsidies

There could also be state support on the way, with the government considering similar subsidies to those on offer for electric cars.

The Transport Ministry has a proposal on the advancement of walking and cycling which is currently out for consultation. The proposal recommends subsidies totalling some three million euros to be introduced by 2019.

Koistinen would like to see Finland follow the example of Sweden, where some 35 million euros has been allocated to help consumers buy electric bikes. Keen cyclists there can get up to 25 percent of the cost of a new electric-power assisted bicycle.

The amount proposed by Finland is, according to the cycling lobby, too small.
(Per Giggle Search): Pop. Sweden 9.9 mill... Pop. Finland 5.5 mill... :wink:

... and:
According to Matti Koistinen of the Finnish cycling association, e-bikes are slowly becoming more common.

"We are reaching a point where everyone will know somebody with an e-bike," said Koistinen. "When you can ask an acquaintance for tips, and there are more e-bikes about, the market will take off."
:mrgreen:

... and ends:
According to Koistinen, widespread e-bike adoption would have other important benefits, including to public health and the fight against climate change, as well as making road maintenance cheaper and easier.

Giving back

Taylor, who lives in a local mobile home park, lost his electric bicycle, his primary mode of transportation, in a dispute over the settlement of his late father’s estate last year. Since then, he’s been getting around town on a conventional mountain bike.

When Larry Freed, who works at Samson Electric Bikes in Moorpark, found out, he launched a $1,500 GoFundMe campaign to replace the electric bike.

The money was raised in under two weeks.

Childhood friend and attorney Kathy Volz said she remembers how as a kid Taylor would ride his Schwinn bike around town making motorcycle noises. She and her parents contributed to Taylor’s bike fund.
