Eos Energy Storage Launches 1st Pilot Project With Con Edison

Eos Energy Storage this week launched its first pilot project with Con Edison. The pilot project will see Eos's potentially disruptive energy storage technology used at Con Edison’s New York City facilities. Interestingly, this announcement came out at about the time (maybe the exact time) I was writing a long article about Eos and its innovative energy storage technology (click that link for a lot more information). I saw the announcement after that article was written and … Read More

Coda Files For Bankruptcy, Switching To Energy Storage Focus

Not long ago, I happened to get connected with a high-up at Coda. A few back-and-forths seemed to confirm what was pretty clear already — the carmaker was doomed. There are a lot of potential reasons for the failure — and, in actuality, it’s probably all of them combined. For one, Coda didn’t seem to be on anyone’s radar. I almost never saw anyone hype the car. As Chris DeMorro of Gas2 notes, the Coda … Read More

Because Invenergy, which is apparently America's largest independent wind power generation company, has just announced that it has purchased three of … Read More
