California very much in running for Tesla Gigafactory 20.7.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Where to build a "Gigafactory" employing 6,000 people churning out batteries, not only for Tesla's range of electric vehicles, but for solar panels and other energy-saving devices, which analysts believe could truly disrupt the auto industry and a whole lot of others. The decision should have been made by now, and ground broken, according to the company's timeline, but is on hold, allowing California, which was not in the race initially - CEO Elon Musk has called California an improbable choice, citing regulations - to throw its hat in the ring. Having the Gigafactory would be a vindication of Gov. Jerry Brown's drive to make California the home of advanced manufacturing, of which Tesla's battery technology is a prime example. Tesla is scheduled to ramp up production of its mass market, $35,000 Model 3 in 2016, which means the advanced lithium-ion batteries need to be rolling off the Gigafactory assembly line by 2016, too. "Let's say I was really concerned and expressed it," said Jim Wunderman, CEO ...

Australias carbon tax betrayal is a blow, but there's good news buried there too | Dan Cass 18.7.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The death of the carbon tax is a massive step backwards, but if we focus our efforts on renewable energy, rather than a price on carbon, we can still implement positive changes Australia is earning global scorn this week, as the first nation to dismantle a well-functioning national policy for reducing greenhouse emissions. While this is a major step backward, and many Australians will consider it reckless, I believe that there is hope for the future, if we focus our efforts on renewable energy, rather than a price on carbon. Our Clean Energy Future package was the best carbon price scheme in the world. It included $13bn for clean energy plus independent, non-partisan processes for measuring progress, setting targets and evaluating the potential of renewable ...
