Tesla Motors recently announced that four states are in contention for a massive new $5 billion plant that the company hopes will build batteries for 500,000 cars a year and employ up to 6,500 people, and there's no doubting that the level of incentives offered will be off the charts.

The draft presented Tuesday to the Cabinet for approval expected in March, said Japan's nuclear energy dependency will be reduced as much as possible, but that reactors meeting new safety standards set after the 2011 nuclear crisis should be restarted.
Since early 2011, a falling volume of crude oil imports as domestic production has risen sharply and the emergence of net product exports have driven the volume and value of net oil imports lower. These reductions occurred even though the annual average oil prices in 2012 and 2013 were at their highest historical levels.
Drillers, business leaders and politicians are hoping the natural gas boom is so big that it brings life to Pittsburgh's stagnant manufacturing sector. The rush of gas from the Marcellus shale and other formations can provide cheap fuel for a renaissance in domestic plastic- and steelmaking.
Environmental groups and a Steuben County village are headed to an appeals court over water sales to a Shell Oil Company subsidiary for shale gas drilling in Pennsylvania. The state Conference of Mayors says a decision in favor of the environmental groups could endanger thousands of water sale contracts that help struggling towns raise revenue.
The U.S. Department of Energy has appointed a team to investigate the detection of radiation in and near a southeastern New Mexico facility that is the nation's only underground nuclear waste repository in operation.
Federal officials announced the approval of two solar energy plants on public lands in California and Nevada, angering environmentalists who say the facilities will endanger desert tortoises. The plants were expected to supply 550 megawatts of renewable energy, enough to power about 170,000 homes.
The head of BP America Inc. says he believes the company is moving closer toward once again being allowed to bid on federal contracts.

A windy stretch of the Mojave Desert once roamed by tortoises and coyotes has been transformed by hundreds of thousands of mirrors into the largest solar power plant of its type in the world, a milestone for a growing industry that is testing the balance between wilderness conservation and the pursuit of green energy across the West.
Scientists say they've taken a key step toward harnessing nuclear fusion as a new way to generate power, an idea that has been pursued for decades. They are still a long way from that goal. The amount of energy they got out of their experimental apparatus was minuscule compared to what they put into it.
The Solar Foundation said Indiana saw 960 new solar industry jobs last year, up from the 540 such jobs in 2012. The Washington, D.C.-based group's annual report summarizing solar energy jobs in each of the 50 states ranked Indiana 25th in solar employment, up two spots from its previous report.
