Google Abandons Renewable Energy Plans
Google Inc has abandoned an ambitious project to make renewable energy cheaper than coal, the latest target of Chief Executive Larry Page’s moves to focus the Internet giant on fewer efforts
Google said that it believed other institutions were better positioned to take its renewable energy efforts “to the next level.”
In 2009, the company’s so-called Green Energy Czar, Bill Weihl, told Reuters that he expected to demonstrate within a few years working technology that could produce renewable energy at a cheaper price than coal.
Earlier this year, Page bought a second superyacht – the 194-ft. expedition superyacht Senses from New Zealand tycoon Sir Douglas Myers. Unlike lesser yachts, it is not powered by wind.
