Posted By: GarethCI think that that means that electric cars could make up a big chunk of the total car market in 10 years, and we might have almost exclusively electric cars in 20 years’ time, much faster than I thought.
What have I missed?

Posted By: ringiWith cheap PV and short term storage, will it be best to design homes so that they overheat in the summer using AC to keep them cool, so that they will get more thermal gain in the winter?
Posted By: fostertomRather, use the PV electricity to input the reqd heat.
Posted By: SteamyTeaSo all that has to happen is that a 200 mile EV needs to be developed that can do 150,000 miles on a set of batteries, is about the size of a Focus/5 Series and costs around £15,000 on the road.
Posted By: tonyIf we do see a big swing towards electric vehicles what influence will this have on the price of it. At present the government makes massive amounts from tax revenue on vehicle fuels.
Posted By: ringiNo need to swap cars etc at motorway service station, 200 miles is close to 3hr driving time, by that point you need a break and a fast charger can recharge in half an hour.
Posted By: Ed DaviesOn the other hand, car batteries are generally optimized for high specific energy or power (J/kg or W/kg) whereas for domestic or grid use you typically want maximum energy for your money. Within reason, low mass and high power are not such a problem.
Posted By: SteamyTeaNow taking a small house that has a yearly electrical usage of 4,000 kWh/year and assume that this is split evenly during the year (not true as the usage can go up in winter but that can be adjusted for afterwards), so that will be:4000 [kWh/year] / 365 [days] = 11 kWh/day

Still doesn't kill the argument though.How many miles -can- car batteries do currently?
Posted By: SteamyTeaMight it not be more economical to recycle the high value car batteries. I assume that they can become batteries again.
