‘Every New Vehicle Will Be Electric’ by 2025, Disruption Expert Says

A Silicon Valley entrepreneur and author has explained how electric vehicles will disrupt and change transportation across the world. But first, Tony Seba — who is an instructor in disruption and clean energy at Stanford University’s Continuing Studies Program, explained to an audience at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, exactly what the nature is of a “disruptor.”

“A disruption is when technologies converge and create a new market and helps to destroy or transform an existing industry,” Seba said. As examples, he highlighted what digital cameras did to film or how Uber created the ‘ride-hailing’ market.

“Disruption happens from the outside. Neither Google nor Apple had ever built a phone — now they own that market. And whoever is the incumbent is gone,” Seba said.

To stress how electric vehicles have already become disruptors, Seba said: “Batteries are going down in cost by 20 percent a year. Dyson is investing £2.5 billion to develop an EV by 2020. There are 2,000 moving parts in a combustion engine — an EV has 18, so it’s ten-times cheaper to maintain.”

And he predicted that “by 2025 every new vehicle will be electric.”

'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'

Mr Scannell
'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'

‘If you are looking for the installation of solar panels, then Redmile Energy are the people to approach! After a thorough survey of our home, they gave us three quotes then arranged a date for installation within three weeks, all of this at less than half the price of the “big boys” for exactly the same panels!'
