It’s slow going, but maybe alternatives to oil will become more pervasive over time.
An Atlanta nonprofit announced a hydrogen fuel project Monday and a German solar panel maker promised 350 jobs for Dublin, broadening Georgia’s alternative energy industry, AJC reporter Dan Chapman writes.
The Midtown-based Center for Transportation and the Environment was awarded a $6 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to help develop hydrogen-powered forklifts. The Center will oversee three companies hoping to build commercially feasible fuel cells for military vehicles in California, Chapman reports.
In Dublin, MAGE Solar will establish its North American headquarters, invest $30 million and potentially employ 350 people within five years to make solar panels. Ravensburg, Germany-based MAGE, which manufactures photovoltaic modules, inverters and mounting systems, also plans a solar education academy.
