Tesla paves the way for ending the fossil fuel era and heading for clean energy

The American electric car giant, Tesla, is paving the way to end the era of fossil fuels by revealing the measures it took in reducing emissions and producing clean electricity, during the past year.

The company’s customers have avoided CO2 emissions at a whopping 8.4 million metric tons last year alone.

Over the past decade, the company has opened new horizons for employment, which are expected to expand in the next decade, in parallel with the company’s expansion and its intention to open new factories to meet the demand for its production.

Tesla.. Environmentally friendly electric achievements

The solar panels of electric car manufacturer Tesla produced clean electricity that exceeded the consumption rate of its cars and factories, in the years from 2012 to 2021.

The average production rate of solar panels for the American company was 25.39 terawatt-hours, during the mentioned period, compared to a consumption of about 25.27 terawatt-hours between Tesla’s factories, facilities and customers, according to a graph provided in its annual impact report for the past year.

The company’s environmentally friendly performance did not stop at limiting its production of clean electricity at record rates, but it also worked to reduce the rates of water consumption of its cars compared to manufacturing gas-powered cars.

The company’s annual report torpedoed the misconception that electric car production processes consume more water than internal combustion engine cars, pointing out that its performance data indicates otherwise.

Tesla said its auto manufacturing facilities had lower recall rates per car than the rest of the manufacturers.

The American company revealed that its new factories in the US state of Texas and the German capital, Berlin, carry a manufacturing design that reduces additional rates by calculating water for each car, up to the stage of manufacturing cells.

Clean water and electricity

Tesla has linked electricity generation to water withdrawal rates, noting that producing clean electricity promotes not over-consumption of water.

In its annual impact report for 2021, the American company stated that each kilowatt-hour production reduces water consumption levels, along with reducing carbon emissions.

The electric car manufacturing giant added that electricity generation in America is one of the main reasons for the high rates of water consumption, for example, thermal energy uses water to generate electricity through steam turbine generators, and it is also used to cool equipment.

The company compared the rate of its consumption and water withdrawal during the manufacturing process of its cars with other companies, noting the convergence of low water withdrawals in its factories and BMW factories, but it outperformed the withdrawal rates of giant companies, such as Ford, Toyota, GM and Stellants.

Sales ambition..and green jobs

Tesla has raised the bar for its sales ambitions by the end of the decade, as it plans to sell up to 20 million electric cars annually in 2030, with designs designed to extend battery life.

This is compared to a sales rate of less than one million cars during the past 2021, the company announced in a series of tweets on its Twitter page.

Tesla also created more than 110,000 direct jobs, and 500,000 indirect jobs, Clean Technica quoted CEO Elon Musk as saying.

Over the past decade, the electric car maker says, its headcount has increased 70-fold, to 100,000 direct jobs by the end of the decade, while other automakers have embarked on early retirements for their employees.

With the company planning to double its production more than 20 times by 2030 compared to last year, the American company’s new factories in Texas and Berlin are opening their doors widely to new employment opportunities.
