Doug Carlsson points us to the announcement that Better Place, the electric car network company, has picked Hawaii to be one of its initial implementation markets. Some of the others are: Denmark, Ireland, the Bay Area in California and Israel. This is interesting to us for several reasons. Better place has an interesting business model. Hawaii will have OTEC plants soon, and OTEC can then power cars. And our friend and colleague Mark Charmer over at the Movement Design Bureau has been tracking Shai Agassi and Better Place since before he started the company.
