Happy Independence Week!

Dear Friends,

Happy Independence Week!

For over 100 years, one iconic symbol of American freedom has been our cars. Cars have been promoted as a means of freedom and mobility – and as symbols of speed, power, and virility.

In last week’s AWESome EarthKind episode, we shared how burning one gallon of gasoline emits 20 pounds of carbon dioxide and how we spew out a pound of CO2 for every mile we drive. If we drive an average of 12,000 miles, we’re each putting 6 tons of CO2 into the air every year.

This week, we meet Brandon Bartneck. Brandon works for FEV –an internationally-recognized leader in the design and development of internal combustion engines, electric and alternative vehicle drive systems, and energy technology.

Some of the world’s largest Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) rely on FEV for the underlying technology of Connected, Automated, Shared, and Electric – or CASE vehicles. As Brandon shares, our exciting clean mobility future will come from the convergence of multiple diverse technology advances.
