What’s Google up to? Yesterday Katie at Earth2Tech brought up the question when it was discovered that the tech giant created a “Google Energy” subsidiary, giving the company the ability to buy and sell electricity if the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission grants it permission to do so. You know what that means… Time to indulge in some fun speculation! So far, folks seem to think that it’s an attempt to lower the cost of utility-scale, renewable energy for its data centers while one commenter on Katie’s post brought up the tantalizing possibility of a demand-response service. What do you think? A tweet for your thoughts… @pedrohernandez
