Where electric vehicles are concerned, most of the time the name Tesla comes to mind – so much so that even Tesla’s batteries are said to be able to power buildings eventually. Well, there are other players in the electric vehicle market, and NanoFlowcell AG happens to be one of them – where their large sized fuel-cell Quant F that tips the scales at more than 5,000 pounds is a sheer monster. This all-wheel-drive vehicle does not shirk its responsibilities when it comes to power, however, as it is able to spring from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds, while it boasts of a powertrain that has 1,075 horsepower. Not only that, the ride itself will be able to go for over 500 miles on a full charge, hitting a top speed of 186 miles per hour.
Having a smart thermostat does have its advantages – especially when you consider how those who have made use of a Nest learning thermostat reported substantial savings in their monthly gas bill despite the Nest itself replacing an already programmable and programmed thermostat. Having said that, what would it be like if each home were to be fitted with a smart thermostat? Just imagine the amount of energy savings that we can see here. ComEd, the largest power company in Illinois, intends to see this reality happen by the year 2020.
