Re: We want to do programs that are going to change the world.
No, as a matter of fact, that isn't fast enough for me. Nor is it fast enough for most consumers, when they get down to actually making a buying decision, and not just posturing. Plus, the electricity that goes into the charge, after you drive 100 miles looking for a charging station and then finish waiting for three hours for your turn, will have been generated by coal, a nuke, or at best, natural gas.
When and if the time comes that a decent battery can actually be made available to the public, there will have to be a few hundred billion dollars in investment to roughly double North America's electrical generating capacity. And, that generating capacity will all have to be solar and wind, with another titanic deployment of the new storage batteries at the new generating plants to store the energy generated when the sun shines and the wind blows for the time when sun isn't shining and wind isn't blowing.
I'm not holding my breath.
