Blink Network CEO Michael Farkas Talks Public Charging (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

There are two primary segments of the public charging market that charging network operators are looking to tap. One segment of the market is all about “filling up” on the go. These operators want to help you charge up as fast as possible, much like gas stations do for gas cars. They’ll be built along expressways and at freeway entrances and exits. They’ll sport the highest speeds possible. In the US, evGo and ChargePoint are very much leaning into DC fast charging. In the US, there are companies like Greenway and Fastned

Clean Energy Expert Michael Liebreich Might Run For Mayor Of London

The founder of New Energy Finance, Michael Liebreich, might run for the mayor of London. Recently, when asked about his intentions he said, “I will declare if I am persuaded Londoners want me to.” Some bookies have said he may have a better chance of winning than several conventional politicians. The next mayoral election in London will be in 2016.

There are green representatives in Parliament, so it seems plausible to consider there could also be such an energy conscious mayor in London.

One of the more startling facts of this case is that being ‘green’ is no longer a fringe perspective in some countries. Consider that current London mayor Boris Johnson, a conservative, is also an avid cyclist. He has even been accused of being too insistent about cycling:

There is now a growing chorus of voices who say that the cycling revolution has been going too fast and that we should somehow get all these cyclists off the roads and people look at me in an accusing way. This analysis grossly exaggerates my messianic abilities. I am a passionate cyclist, but I am not some kind of Pied Pedaller.  People go by bike because they love to go by bike.

Johnson also advocated for new diesel-hybrid buses that create less air pollution. So, it seems that Liebreich’s enthusiasm for clean energy should not hold him back if he decides to run. Also, it is not unheard of that one might consider the office of London mayor to be a springboard in running for Prime Minister. If he should run and win, serving as mayor for such a major city might help pave the way to a campaign for PM.
