The Race to Build a Better Battery | Fortune
At first glance, all seems serene on a spring morning at the research-and-development campus of SK Innovation, one of Korea’s biggest industrial conglomerates. The campus sits in Daejeon, a tidy, planned city an hour’s high-speed-train ride south of Seoul that the national government has built up as a technology hub. Dotting SK’s rolling acres are tastefully modern glass-and-steel buildings that wouldn’t be out of place in a glossy architecture magazine. One contains a library, its tables stocked with rolls of butcher paper and Post-it notes to spur creativity. Another houses an espresso bar where engineers queue for caffeination. A cool breeze blows. Birds chirp. Pink cherry blossoms bloom.

Letter: Net metering bill is good for the state
Several energy bills proposed in the Legislature this year are vital to N.H. businesses and municipalities, and to the economic and environmental resiliency of the entire state in the years to come. The most notable, House Bill 365, allows businesses, towns and school districts to qualify for net metering (sell energy back to the electric grid) for renewable energy projects that can produce up to 5 megawatts of energy. The current limit is 1 megawatt.

I am writing in support of New Hampshire Senate Bill 446, also known as this Net Metering bill. Just to provide a little background, Net Metering is a process when solar panels or other renewable energy generators are connected to a public-utility power grids. The surplus power generated from these sustainable energy sources is then transferred onto the grid, allowing customers to be compensated for the excess energy created. The Net Metering bill Senate 446 would increase the current limit on net metering compensation from 1 megawatt to 5 megawatts.
