How Google Could Become Your New Energy Supplier

Google is to invest in companies developing clean-energy technologies as part of an effort to make renewable energy cheaper than coal. The internet giant is to develop software and hardware tools for energy management and plans to sell a percentage of the generated energy back to the grid for Renewable Energy Certificates.

The project is fronted by Google's Energy Access team, led by Arun Majumdar, vice president of Google's energy unit and former acting undersecretary of energy at the U.S. Department of Energy.
