The year only wrapped adult here in Europe. Below were a 30 many renouned articles of a year here on CleanTechnica. Naturally, notwithstanding a slower prolongation ramp than approaching and planned, a large cleantech story of a year was a Tesla Model 3. However, no essay about that automobile won a tip spot. Surprisingly, a tip mark was won by a piece we unequivocally fast put together after almost determining to go to bed instead. we consider there’s unequivocally something to that article’s success, and we consider Tesla would be correct to consider it — though that’s a contention for another day.
A German solar appetite record afterwards swooped in and stole china before a Tesla Model 3 took bronze with a story comparing a specs to a specs of 22 “competitors.” For a rest of a list, corkscrew down.
4. Low Costs of Solar Power Wind Power Crush Coal, Crush Nuclear, Beat Natural Gas (technically, this was published on Dec 25, 2016)
In total, 23 of a tip 30 CleanTechnica stories of 2017 directly associated to Tesla — and maybe one some-more if people incidentally review “Tesla Motors” instead of “Tata Motors” in essay #23. 😉 That’s a distant aloft share for Tesla than a association has among a altogether coverage (the 5,386 stories we published in 2017).
While we try to be driven entirely by what we consider is value covering and sharing, not by clicks, we consider we’d be correct to do a bit of a improved pursuit covering and formulating Tesla stories some-more frequently, some-more quickly, and with some-more abyss and analysis. Clearly, this is a association pushing many of a EV attention and also a US solar and tellurian appetite storage industries. It’s so a association that has a many reader interest. We’ll do a improved pursuit of removing we more, quicker, and improved Tesla coverage in 2018 — along with ongoing and many deeper coverage of all we consider is hugely critical in a broader cleantech world.

He spends many of his time here on CleanTechnica as a executive and arch editor, though he’s also a boss of Important Media and a director/founder of EV Obsession and Solar Love. Zach is famous globally as a solar energy, electric car, and appetite storage expert. He has presented about cleantech during conferences in India, a UAE, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, a Netherlands, a USA, and Canada.
Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these sold companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to deposit in. But he offers no veteran investment recommendation and would rather not be obliged for we losing money, so don’t burst to conclusions.
