Zenn also lost a bid for DOE funds to build an R&D facility. Apparently the DOE does not pay to build R&D facilities. This does not bode well for a long term future for Zenn. IMHO Zenn/EEStor is working some kind of scam. I began following Zenn because I thought that the electric car idea was a good one, and they happened to be associated with a company on the verge of a breakthrough.
