Google Funds Cooperative US-China Clean Energy Study

Google has given $250,000 to the US National Academies to fund their participation in a joint study with the Chinese Academies of Science and Engineering regarding how the two countries can jointly improve wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass energy generation and storage.[social_buttons]

The United States and China are the two largest energy consumers and carbon emitters. The study will focus on ways that the two countries can both commercialize technologies and make them available to the masses. The research teams will also assess the resources and capacity for various large-scale forms of alternative energy in each country.

The study is slated to begin on November 12th with a report scheduled to be released 18 months later. This is only the latest of Google’s investments into alternative energy, electric vehicles, and other technology advancements to fight climate change.
