|“Our goal is to produce one gigawatt of renewable energy capacity that is cheaper than coal. We are optimistic this can be done in years, not decades. (One gigawatt can power a city the size of San Francisco.)
If we meet this goal, and large-scale renewable deployments are cheaper than coal, the world will have the option to meet a substantial portion of electricity needs from renewable sources and significantly reduce carbon emissions.
We expect this would be a good business for us as well.”
Google’s putting a new slant on the phrase utility computing.
There should be a sexy word for “monetizing your infrastructure.” Then we can call it the _______ Revolution and compare it to the Industrial Revolution.
