      Google spin-off that stores energy in molten salt backed by Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates

      Malta, a Massachusetts-based company, has raised $26m (£21m) from Breakthrough Energy Ventures, which counts the Amazon and Microsoft founders among its investors. The company was set up last year and hopes to be able to store electricity from solar and other renewable sources using an elaborate system that stores the energy as extreme heat and cold. It has now been spun off from X, the experimental arm of Google’s parent company Alphabet.

      Holy Grail of Energy Policy in Sight as Battery Technology Smashes the Old Order

      The world's next energy revolution is probably no more than five or ten years away. Cutting-edge research into cheap and clean forms of electricity storage is moving so fast that we may never again need to build 20th Century power plants in this country, let alone a nuclear white elephant such as Hinkley Point. The US Energy Department is funding 75 projects developing electricity storage, mobilizing teams of scientists at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and the elite Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge labs in a bid for what it calls the 'Holy Grail' of energy policy.
