If you had been to India Dave you would understand exactly what I meant. The standard of housing for most people in India is worse than you could comprehend. A lot of the population also live in ultra high density dwellings......  so where does that home charger go?

They are inventive. They will think of something

Agree 100%, however they also have to make sure the electricity they generate is Green. Have to go nuclear IMO.

While I Agree 100% on the green energy front,  a couple of things to bear in mind are.

1: the world is apparently moving away from nuclear on the whole and decommissioning a lot of plants.
2: the co2 from bitumised coal is terrible,  but from what i understand it is on balance less per usable kwh than burning petrol/diesel.

The utopian dream for those of us in the middle class in first world countries would be for home PV generation and storage IMO. The setup Scott has is my dream.  Just need an EV supercar to add to the garage and you would be set.
