He rides solar cycle to his office every day 14.7.2014 deccanherald.com
While motorists in Bangalore perpetually complain about the skyrocketing fuel prices and reaching their destinations late due to traffic jams, here is a person who loves travelling from his home to office everyday. For Ajai Tirumali, a 37-year-old software professional, riding from Koramangala to Old Madras Road where his office is located, is no longer a headache. "Ever since I purchased an electric bicycle and installed two solar panels on the rack of the bike, dealing with traffic as well as fluctuating fuel prices has been easy. Two years back when I was travelling by car, I used to take one hour to reach office, while now it takes just half-an-hour," Tirumali says. Tirumali added that he used to spend around Rs 1,000 - Rs 1,500 per month on fuel alone and hence thought of purchasing an electric bicycle which was a better option. Environment-friendly "The bicycle has a motor and batteries. However, the batteries depend on some amount of electricity supply. Hence, I thought I will use solar panels ...

Live debate: should we ban cars from city centres? 10.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
We invited readers to join our experts in a live webchat to discuss the future of cars in cities This week we have been investigating the role and impact of cars in cities: congested roads , urban motorways , creative reuse of carparks and petrol stations and how some cities are discouraging car ownership . What does the future hold next for urban transport? We invited our readers to participate in a debate on whether streets should be pedestrianised and cars banned from city centres. We had four experts on hand to answer questions: David Sim, creative director of Gehl Architects ; Paul Watters, head of roads policy at the AA ; Adam Greenfield, senior urban fellow at LSE Cities ; and Patricia Brown, Director of urban affairs consultancy, Central, who wrote a piece earlier this week on why the car must "no longer be king" in cities .

New blueprints for taming climate crisis 9.7.2014 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Here's what your future will look like if we are to have a shot at preventing devastating climate change. Within about 15 years every new car sold in the United States will be electric. In fact, by midcentury more than half of the American economy will run on electricity. Up to 60 per cent of power might come from nuclear sources. And coal's footprint will shrink drastically, perhaps even disappear from the power supply. This course, created by a team of energy experts, was unveiled in a report for the United Nations that explores the technological paths available for the world's 15 main economies to both maintain reasonable rates of growth and cut their carbon emissions enough by 2050 to prevent climatic havoc. It offers a sobering conclusion. We might be able to pull it off. But it will take an overhaul of the way we use energy, and a huge investment in the development and deployment of new energy technologies. Significantly, it calls for an entirely different approach to international diplomacy on the ...

A weekly column that helps you ask the right questions
Electric Boris cars are coming to London how do they work in Paris? 9.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

When the electric car-sharing scheme Autolib launched in the French capital, staff were advised to expect a complete disaster. Three years and 30m miles later, the biggest concern is pigeons

Jean-Philippe Wailliez, who runs a small wine business in Paris, finds he uses one actually pretty regularly. Three, four times a week, maybe, instead of the metro or the commuter train. It really is a very useful service. Especially when I have to make deliveries.

Emanuelle Buet is on her way to an urgent, unscheduled meeting on the other side of town, further from a metro station than any self-respecting Parisian would ever want to walk. I have a car, but its in the multi-storey 10 minutes away, she says. Itll take forever to get out, and twice as long again to find somewhere to park at the other end.
