Bumble, to be fair I really don’t think you even need to reply to anything the troll says. Given that it’s highly unlikely it will ever say anything if value, why not just filter him and be done with it?
Re: Filter, I prefer the filter of my mind. I'm capable of reading and choosing not to reply. All views should be catered for but the best way of removing unwanted burgers is to ignore. IMHO of course. Good day on the BB.
Bsac filtered. I'm not going to read his fiction.
He's taking over the board by stealth. That is to say that all your replies are doing is filling the board with arguements we should not be having.
If he wants to post lies and made up rubbish, leave him to it, because people will also read the genuine factual posts and realise that he is talking out of his bottom.
So, can we all just filter the con man? Then the board will not be filled with people's replies to rubbish!
My experience again is that companies are willing to pay the extra to appear that they care, look at the money spent on advertising alone. I think the truth is that most European countries will have to face a tough new reality soon. There is a lot of talk from leaders about making the moves to a more sustainable future, though many countries have not yet implemented changes. These will come thick and fast, especially if they are serious about the targets they have set and if these will be enforced.
I see companies here paying far more to make sure they are "greener", buying hydrogen trucks is just one example. We, the consumer do end up paying more, though the mentality slowly changes after the initial protests when costs increase. I imagine the UK will soon see taxes added, the so called carbon tax, as we have here on many products/services. Those that are optional now, such as a carbon neutral box you can tick when purchasing something become mandatory.
We have to look at the next generation, they are far more passionate about a green future than many of us are or perhaps have been, they will be buying evs and actively seeking to reduce their carbon footprints.
I also wonder how much the government will offer to assist with people making greener choices in the UK. As an ev driver here I get 50% off parking, tolls, prime parking spots, free road tax and more.
So if I was head of pr at say Waitrose, and could make a simple advert showing we are the first supermarket to offer zero emision ev charging, because we care or something similar, I'd think that selling the charge at a cost that resulted in a loss initially would be beneficial, you get the custom and the good pr. Even if the cost is 2.5 times that of what you pay per kWh at home, all public charging points here cost over 2 times the cost of kWh at home, you pay for the convenience.
And no, I don’t prefer to write my accounts of meetings on I. I am doing it as a protest to LSE about the way they are allowing malicious posters to write damagingly misleading posts on this site. I will stick them on here this evening so that both sites have them. I see you managed to lie about your posting history on it too!
Apparently not. As already said. Making themselves look like an idiot.
We should get back to factual posting rather than let that fool try and break up the good information provided over the last few days.
Hi Bimac, I am sure even you must understand the differences between our posts. Mine was an account of a presentation and demonstration by the company giving new information over more than two hours. It was provided for people who could not attend. I reported what I heard, others have done likewise and the bulletin board can check between them to check if they concur. These were straight from the horses mouth (Bond et al).
Your essays are a stream of over-long prejudices you have on the company, often incorrect, and never holding anything positive. So an utterly one-sided diatribe with red flags all over them.
I do not normally produce so much volume, whereas it is a regular event for your posts. Surely you are not so stupid as to miss the difference between our contributions?
Home charge! Have you not been listening sweetheart? I give up
Agusta, re your...I think the positives of being able to advertise that your shop offers ev charging from a green source are very positive.
Not when you have to pay for it and at a rate 2.5 times the cost of a home charge to boot, as opposed to it being free from the other supermarket down the road. There will be no free green sources of electricity. Bmac
jimmynan , re your...I'm beginning to feel a bit sorry for Bsac
Don't feel sorry for me jimmynan, I'm having a great time. Bmac
From what I've observed (in Norway), there was a surge of supermarkets and such offering free charging initially, though now all of the public charging points are pay to use.
I think the positives of being able to advertise that your shop offers ev charging from a green source are very positive. Especially if you could add that you were the first in the UK to do that.
13thmonkey, ...re your...they've been talking for at least a year now, maybe 2.
And you think it will be different for AFC's EV Charger installations? Bmac
If they ever do get around to doing one or two I can tell you this...'it wont be free from AFC'. Bmac
I'm beginning to feel a bit sorry for Bsac, all these people rubbishing his rubbish statements. His false news is quite comedic. He stresses 100 supermarkets with 7kW chargers is a threat to AFCs business case - what an absolute joke. When will he realise he's lost his battle. It's a bit like Comedy Ali stating Iraq were winning the war as the empire was crumbling in front of his very eyes!!! LOLOLOL
Sounds like BSac is back and taking another hammering. Fighting a losing battle.
There are 87,141 grocery stores in the UK, so there are ONLY another 87,041 to go for and that is just supermarkets. I am sure the other companies are installing the charging stations at Tesco for free and that there are no infrastructure costs - LOL.
It will struggle if customers want more than a trickle charge. Imagine 20 Tesla’s wanting the full 72kw in a 1 hour shop. 1.5mw/h additional requirement. Only an idiot would try this route. AFC EVs would provide the solution.
Bmac: you said : some rubbish.
The supermarket pays for it, it's a loss leader for them. Have any of these supermarkets actually done this yet, or just planning to? It's telling that they haven't actually done it, they've been talking for at least a year now, maybe 2.
100 supermarkets giving away free charging.
And thats why a leading supermarket chain visited AFC as they know the grid will struggle with future uptake. So glad you pointed that out...
haggismchaggis1....I don't think the press differentiate between national and local grid, to them it's the same thing, and the billions of pounds apply to the whole......What makes the most sense now is that provisioning rapid charging in cities or remote areas could easily mean a new substation is required. that's £350k++ depending on size.
Exactly. Someone making a sensible unbiased post on this subject at last. Have a word with BumbleB would you.
BumbleB,..re your....The message on Friday was that it is the local grid networks that are struggling, not the national grid itself. Our resident essay writer will pick up on this if I don’t correct.
You prefer to write your essays on ii then?
100 supermarkets giving away free charging. That's gotta be a first and popular with demand likely to grow. They haven't been grid handicapped have they? Free charging would you believe, from a struggling grid. Well. Well. Clearly not everyone is struggling then. One thing is certain. It won't be free from AFC! .....You heard it first here. Rhymes well, it could catch on. Bmac
Thanks, nice to be back now AFC are back to meaningful progress. I got a bit bored for a while so had switched off to de-stress!
I don't think the press differentiate between national and local grid, to them it's the same thing, and the billions of pounds apply to the whole. I do however see the point that it's not power pylons that need upgrading, but further down the line.
What makes the most sense now is that provisioning rapid charging in cities or remote areas could easily mean a new substation is required. that's £350k++ depending on size. The AFC charger is already cheaper!
The message on Friday was that it is the local grid networks that are struggling, not the national grid itself. Our resident essay writer will pick up on this if I don’t correct.
Nice to see you here Haggis.
The National Grid will need the Hydrogen EV Charger.
A spike in demand for electricity to power the growing network of plug-in cars could cripple the National Grid by 2040, an energy expert has warned today.
Mark Sait, chief executive of SaveMoneyCutCarbon believes that if UK electric car sales rise at the same rate as they have across the rest of Europe, it could result in blackouts and the grid crashing due to insufficient power supplies, similar to those experienced last week.

Holder since 2008. Sitting on free shares as I took my original investment out years ago. Not needed to sell them for 11 years, and don't mind waiting a lot longer if they eventually make me a millionaire, which was the plan from the outset.
This company is a one company pension plan just waiting to happen. Here's hoping the EV Charger sales take off globally (South Korea could be back in the picture), and they sell off the membrane for use in the Chlor-alkali process for a few hundred million. That will get us very much on the way.
