It’s hard to avoid headlines about Elon Musk. Just in the last few months, Elon and company released the Tesla Model 3, made a colossal energy deal with Australia, and drove a tech-savvy tiny house around the “land down under.” Even if you’re sick of hearing about Musk, it’s hard to deny the hype surrounding the man; he clearly has a “Midas touch.” Just look at our latest reviews for the Tesla Model 3, Powerwall 2, and Model S. But now, China Aerospace Science and Industry (CASIC) is challenging Musk’s Hyperloop with a concept of their own. If it works, it will leave Musk in the dust.
China’s solar energy goal was 105GW. Now, the nation says, they’ll need to rework those numbers because of their solar rush. This has spurred renewable energy groups to call out Europe to increase its 27% renewable power target to 35% for 2020.
