Google enters into the green energy business

ø

It was announced on Tuesday that Google plans to invest tens of millions of dollars in R&D in renewable energy.  The company has stated that the technologies created by Google will be used directly by Google itself, as the company is a big user of energy.  Google will hire approximately 30 people into a newly created clean-energy division by 2008.

The company will also fund other investments through its philanthropic arm, Google.org.  The group has about $2 billion worth of Google stock to invest.
