Ireland to support electric cars with $5,000 euro grant

Buyers of electric vehicles will get the grant and be exempt from vehicle registration tax, the government said. Ireland's Electricity Supply Board is rolling out 3,500 charge points by December 2011, with roll-out already under way in Dublin and charging points due to be installed in Cork, Galway, Waterford and Limerick. Ireland said it's aiming for 10% of the country's vehicles to be electric by 2011. Nissan is due to roll the Leaf, an all-electric five-seater, early next year, and Renault will launch its Kangoo Z.E. electric vehicle later in the year.

Solar-Powered Plane Debuts

The aircraft made its maiden voyage Wednesday in Switzerland, as a team of engineers and adventurers marked an important step in a $93.5 million project to build the first aircraft capable of circumnavigating the globe without a drop of fuel. The plane itself, Solar Impulse, is an unwieldy beast. Wings as wide as those on a 747 are decked out with solar panels to provide enough power to keep the 3,500-pound craft cruising at about 44 mph. Test pilot Markus Scherdel managed to take the aircraft almost a mile above the Swiss countryside, executing simple turns during the 90-minute flight before making a successful landing.
