Quantum computers, which have recently been bought by Google and Lockheed Martin, aren't just sophisticated computes, they need to operate at near absolute zero temperatures to deliver their quantum effects, and that's a tricky prob...
An air battery -- long the holy grail of battery researchers -- could see commercialization next year by startup Eos Energy Storage.
Power companies in areas with a growing amount of clean power are looking at new ways to store compressed air underground. The Pacific Northwest could get some of these new air technologies in the coming years.
Startup Re:char hopes to deliver a low cost Android gadget plug-in that can test the moisture content and fertility of soil. Kenyan farmers get ready to meet the latest in data analytics and cloud services.
As a boom of solar panels continues to be installed on buildings throughout the U.S., companies, groups and even every day people can make money off of funding this clean energy transition.
Tesla is now officially a success according to blind-sided investors and media. Tesla didn't emerge last week with a win, it's taken a decade to deliver and true game-changing innovation takes a very long time.
SunPower plans to sell lithium ion batteries -- or other energy storage technology -- bundled with solar panels. The move follows other solar companies into the energy storage space.
Tesla could raise another $830 million in a new offering in a combination of selling common stock, and issuing senior convertible notes. That means Tesla can pay back its DOE loan early, among other things.

After three years of investigation, the GreenTouch consortium issued its first recommendations for energy efficient telecom networks. GreenTouch claims the roadmap, if implemented, would cut the communications industry's power needs to a fraction of current levels.
Can quantum computing be the key to a much safer power grid? A California startup, GridCOM, plans to show just how quantum encryption could be a nearly fail-proof shield against cybersecurity breaches.
Capturing energy from light and heat using tiny antennas could be a way to produce solar energy at a lower cost, and capture and reuse waste heat from industrial processes. They're still in the prototype phase.
Algorithms to manage connected thermostats and collect their data have become a hot property in 2013. Alarm.com snaps up startup EnergyHub for its thermostat management software.
Tesla stock jumped almost 30 percent in after hour trading on the news that electric car maker Tesla has delivered a profit for the first time.
