Petrol Cars Dirtier, Tesla's Secret Battery & Indian Solar

Robert’s back with his views on some recent news stories including Indian solar, Tesla mega-batteries in Texas and really big electric trucks!

Robert returns with his take on a few recent news stories, but this time he’s out of his office and on location in a Volvo XC40!

Could Solar Farms in the Sahara be a Renewable Energy dream or a global climate nightmare? Are things looking up for Texas with news that Tesla are plugging in a secret mega-battery to the grid? Will Electric Trucks be able to go long distance with a heavy load and replace diesel for good?

Watch to find out the answers, with a dash of minor ranting thrown in.
