Charging Station Reliability is Crucial as EVs Gain Speed

EV Connect

Electric vehicle (EV) production and sales are surging forward, and consumers are rapidly embracing the change. Without confidence that they can refuel their electric cars as reliably as their gas-powered vehicles, consumers will be reluctant to embrace the change. Louis.

Researchers Sequence the Maize (Corn) Genome

Green Car Congress

Thin ribbons connect duplicate regions in the maize genome, thereby revealing large related segments and reflecting the maize genome’s complicated structure. Resulting improved strains of maize may, for example, produce larger yields, show resistance to disease, offer efficiencies in nitrogen use that would enable farmers to reduce applications of costly, polluting fertilizers, and tolerate changes in rainfall or temperature accompanying climate change.
