But that's only part of the story. Billmaier outlines how EVs will propel the coming "electriconomy," a consumer-driven economic boom that will be ignited as our society is transformed from an oil-based economy to one powered by electricity. The electriconomy will dwarf all previous technology revolutions--it will be bigger than the computer and Internet markets combined--and will catapult the economy of whichever nation masters it. It's a race we need to win for reasons of national and economic security, Billmaier says, but we need to move fast. China is determined to own the EV space itself, an outcome that would be as detrimental to U.S. national security as our current dependence on foreign oil is today. In these pages, he describes what we need to do to win the EV race--what America must do to take charge!
