A green challenge, university wind power and Taiwan goes big with $786M for clean energy
January 18, 2010
A few worldwide stories caught our eye today:
•From across the pond, a British company is sponsoring a £2 million($2.8M) challenge pitting communities against each other to see who can be greenest using energy conservation and renewable energy.
•Taiwan is plunging into the already massive clean tech field with Taiwan’s president announcing a plan to spend about $786 million(U.S. dollars) over the next five years to encourage the private sector to set up renewable energy and energy conservation facilities.
•And finally closer to home, a story on universities, like Southwestern University, Texas Tech, and the universities of Maryland and Maine, all getting into the wind power game.
P.S. For those like me who didn’t immediately know, a “lido”, mentioned in the story from Britain, is a pool.
