 New alliance from Google, GE will pursue clean energy with zeal

Google already announced that it wants the U.S. to use 100 percent alternative energy by 2030. Now it has found a powerful ally to aid it in its quest. Tech giant General Electric, one of America's most profitable companies, has announced an alliance with Google for creating a "smart" U.S. electric power grid and clean energy.

Half the new alliance's efforts will be dedicated to developing and investing in green energy technologies. The other half will be in lobbying US political leaders to support alternative energy.

In a press release, the pair state:

Both companies believe that our economic, environmental and security challenges require that we use electricity more efficiently, generate it from cleaner sources, and electrify our transportation fleet. This 21st century electricity system must combine advanced energy technology -- a major GE focus -- and cutting edge information technology -- a major Google focus.

Google has, since formally going public with the effort last year, been promoting its "renewable energy cheaper than coal" drive. For the last two years, it dedicated a team of its engineers to developing alternative energy technologies in the effort to make alternative power sources cheaper than fossil fuels.  [Dailytech...]   [Comments...]
