There is little in the way of adequate insurance for energy storage… and it’s holding the sector back. That’s the opinion of industry insiders who think that the lack of cover will create barriers to entry for new players in the storage space, and result in sub-par customer service for purchasers of energy storage products.
French oil giant Total is moving further into renewable energy, and may target the offshore wind market next, after this week’s investment in cleantech developer EREN Renewable Energy. On Tuesday, Total said it took a 23 percent share in the company for €237.5 million ($284.9 million), with an option to buy the rest after five years. This week, Total also bought GreenFlex, a French energy efficiency player, for an undisclosed sum.
Makani, the airborne wind energy developer owned by Google’s parent, Alphabet, will start testing its fly-gen turbine-bearing plane concept in Hawaii next year. The tests will give Makani its first experience of operating the M600 airborne wind energy prototype away from a desert environment and over inhabited space near towns and an airport, said Makani’s head, Dr. Fort Felker. He declined to say when in 2018 Makani would move to Hawaii.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
