More car than motorcycle, Lit Motors' C-1 2-wheeler, self-stabilizing prototype looks like a very promising personal vehicle, and Lit Motors is hiring 8 engineers to go from prototype to manufacturing a production model.   The 8 new hires mean the company will have to raise a significant amount of capital before being in the black. These engineers are not cheap, and with fully loaded salaries and facility and tools to provide an efficient work environment, they'll...
Hi Brittany, We have 12,000 green jobs at TheGreenJobBank.  You green dream job might be there for you!  Good luck!  
This is the typical chicken and egg problem. No charging stations, no electric cars; no electric cars, no charging stations.   Unless scientists deliver some serious breakthroughs in battery capacity and charge time in the next few years, we're going to need charging stations everywhere: home, office, retail parking lots, shopping malls, airports, and yes, gas stations.   The US has currently about 160,000 gas stations, but research outfit Frost and Sullivan...

Is the US Government turning into a venture capitalist, and again trying to pick the winners? Yes and No...   Through the US Small Business Administration (SBA), the government has supplemented the flow of private equity capital and long-term loan funds to small businesses. In FY 2011, the SBA's Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) program provided $2.8 billion of financing to 1,339 U.S. small businesses. However, the US Government is not picking the winners. The...
Virgin America recently announced a 15% increase in fuel efficiency with new jet engines. How does this compare to clean-energy powered high-speed trains?
