For Clean-Energy Entrepreneurs, a 'Battery University' Is On Its Way

Feb 13, 2013
(San Jose Mercury News)

As the demand for electric cars and other renewable technologies grows, California needs battery experts and entrepreneurs -- and it's looking to San Jose State University to produce them.

A "battery university" will open this summer in the university's professional division, teaching the ins and outs of energy storage. The program will be practical and applied, covering everything from technical concepts to the financial and policy issues related to running a renewable energy business.
