Israel's Moving Answer to Obama's 'Smart Grid'

"Moving," as in personal transportation. From today's New York Times:

DETROIT — Years ago, when Shai Agassi started promoting his idea of service stations to recharge electric cars, the automotive world barely took notice.

At the time, gas was cheap, big pickups and S.U.V.’s ruled American roads, and alternative-fuel vehicles seemed destined to remain a tiny niche for green-minded consumers and technophiles.

But now nearly every major auto company in the world has committed to building electric cars, and President Obama has made reducing oil consumption a centerpiece of his energy policy.
This, I believe, will be big. Very big. And soon. And that's a very good thing.
