Good Resources on Renewable Energy in Maine
January 2nd, 2010
I know, I know its not Tuesday, its Saturday. But I plan on posting this on Tuesdays from now on.
The Green Light Distrikt is not a news site but I think it’s important to keep up to date on the news. To compensate for this we’ll be posting the top 5 or so most interesting stories with a little blurb about the story, a little bit about the company or why the news is important.
The current stories are for the month of December and November and in the future it will be a weekly or bi-weekly post.
I will keep the briefs focused and based around companies, so we can keep up to date of how the industry is going around Boston.
Here’s the 5 most interest stories and a little blurb about each piece:
Industry sector: Finance, Solar
Industry sector: Energy storage, Transportation
A123 has propriety battery technology that is going to be the engine behind any mass adoption of electric vehicles or renewable energy storage. A spin off from MIT they are currently based in Watertown. Clearly, there move to China shows they think the industry and market in China is a large opportunity. A market shift to electric vechiles will be much easier in China compared to the U.S.A because all the government will need is an edict, no more gasoline cars. I’m assuming they’re waiting until the infrastructure is ready so that the economy will not collapse.
Industry sector: Energy efficiency, Energy service
Industry sector: Green Building
As green building continues to grow and double governments are looking to become leaders in the area. It’ll be interesting to see what happens in Woburn.
Industry sector: Government
Massachusetts energy incentives and grants used to be administered through the Renewable Energy Trust which was part of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative. Now the money and grant will flow through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
I’m curious, which of these stories is the most interesting to you?
If you have any interesting new stories about clean tech around Boston, events that we should know about don’t be shy. Send me an email or a tweet @theGLDistrikt
Happy New Year!
