TSLA never stops growing.
On Tuesday, Germany’s economy minister Sigmar Gabriel announced that Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) is now in negotiations with German government over its latest idea to construct a new battery factory in the region.
At an event at a Mercedes-Benz car factory in Rastatt, Germany, Mr. Gabriel revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk may look for government support for this facility. Mr. Gabriel said, “We’re in talks” with the Tesla CEO about a possible plant. I assume he will want public funds.”
This new factory’s opening will unlock a new angle of Tesla’s competition with former shareholder and Mercedes’ parent company Daimler AG (OTCMKTS:DDAIF), and luxury car manufacturer BMW AG.
Three years later, coal is largely taking a back seat in the Republican race for the White House. GOP candidates instead are calling for an increase to oil and natural gas production while they promise to roll back Obama’s regulations, some of which affect the coal industry.
BRUSSELS/WASHINGTON Nov 17 (Reuters) - Members of the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on Tuesday struck a deal to phase out subsidies used to export technology for coal-fired power generation, ending months of wrangling, an EU and a U.S. source said.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the EU source said a deal had been agreed to end export credits for inefficient technology to take effect from Jan. 1, 2017, with a review in 2019.
The review could allow the deal to be strengthened in the light of climate science, the source said.
This week's talks at the Paris-based OECD were viewed as a final chance to end export credits for coal, the most polluting of fossil fuels, before United Nations climate talks on a global deal to curb climate change. The U.N. talks begin on Nov. 30, also in Paris.
Japan, wary of regional competition from China, had been at the vanguard of opposition to phasing out coal export credits that benefit companies such as Toshiba Corp.
But prospects for a deal improved after Japan agreed to a compromise proposal with the United States.
A U.S. source said Tuesday's deal would limit any lending for coal plants to the most efficient coal-fired power plants.
The coal industry has said coal is still a necessary energy source, especially in poor countries that have few other options.
It made an exception to allow the construction of less efficient coal plants of up to 500 megawatts in developing countries and would allow some exemptions in emerging economies including India, Indonesia, the Philippines and South Africa.
But the European Union has already agreed to end domestic coal subsidies by 2018 and firms and investors are divesting from the fuel source.
Swedish utility Vattenfall, for instance, is selling lignite coal plants as it shifts to renewable energy.
At a meeting in Turkey this week, leaders of the world's largest economies, the G20, reaffirmed their commitment "to rationalise and phase out inefficient f
India will stop importing coal by 2017. Blame the EPA and Obama.... :-)
You Do know much the EPA operates in India... :-)
Yeah. I see wind/solar not as competition, I see it as complimentary to each other.
That is what I noticed about Elons Powerwall/Powerpack introduction. He didn't mention wind too much. Having wind means that less battery power would be necessary. I was wondering if that was bit self serving. But anyway it looks like a real revolution is taking place.
Naw. Renewables will never have an effect... :-)
Owing to the nighttime overproduction of electricity via wind energy infrastructure in Texas, a fair number of utility companies in the Lone Star State have begun offering access to free electricity at night — mostly between the hours of 9 pm and 6 am — according to recent reports.
For some further explanation here, it’s worth remembering that Texas has its own electric grid, so production there is essentially only used there… or not — hence the offer of free time nighttime use. It should also be remembered that the use of free nighttime electricity access to users can thereby allow some grid burdens to be reduced.

Explains why most lottery winners lose all of their money.... :-)
Doesn't matter somebody took $200M from MegaMillions....
So it's down to less than $5M after taxes. But then again when ACI goes down below 19¢ you can buy ACI for $4M..... :-)
Of course you would not only get the company, you get $5B debt.....
MANAGEMENT holds 3,381 shares IN TOTAL! Less than $5,000
$7M in income for Eaves NOT A PENNY IN COMPANY STOCK! LOL!
So WHY in anybody's right mine would ANYBODY put a penny in this company??????

I went to the google finance page and looked at the dow/naz/sp charts.
the 3 biggest price rises were
1 Barack Obama biggest NO CRASH
2 Bill Clinton NO CRASH
3. GWB with the BIGGEST CRASH!
Why do people do things against their own self interests?
