Renewable energy got a much needed momentum boost, when the White House announced an executive order by President Obama on a solar energy initiative. The executive order would add 50,000 jobs in the solar energy industry and includes a push for a $2 billion energy efficiency upgrade to federal buildings. Walmart, Apple, Google, Yahoo are mentioned as corporate campuses committed to the measure, while Citigroup and Goldman Sachs plan large scale investment and innovation programs! http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/09/usa-obama-energy-idUSL2N0NU2OG20140509
