By 2030, the gap between capacity that is added by fossil fuels and renewable energy will widen to as much as 400%. The trend is in, and it appears that oil will have a hard time trading back to the lofty levels of $140.00. For the next 12 months, oil is not projected to trade past $60 for any prolonged period of time. Note the cost of batteries continues to drop and at some point, the electric car is going to become a real threat to the fossil fuel industry. Electric cars will eventually outsell Fossil powered Cars. Battery prices fell 35% last year and at this pace, the cost of an electric car should be comparable to the cost of Petrol-powered cars by 2020. Bloomberg states that by 2040, long range electric cars will cost less than $22,000 in today’s dollars.
