Yeah, I've been hearing lots of issues surrounding tranmission. It's interesting that AUSRA seems to be changing its focus from electrical generation to heating fluids. I believe all the key players including AUSRA, Brightsource, and Abengoa will be participating at a conference in early June.. http://www.cstpower-conference.com/

Interesting that no mention of Ausra is made. They're another company that is developing and deploying concentrating solar power technology. They've drawn attention for a deal the signed with pg&e that will be in effect for 20 years. The plant they are building is going to be 177mw, not the biggest but it is going to be closer to transmission lines, enabling them to get things up and running quicker.

I like the idea of solar power and sticking it back to the power companies.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
