The Mountain View company announced on Tuesday a new research and development group whose aim will be to continue to develop electricity from renewable energy sources much cheaper (and cleaner) than coal. The new initiative, dubbed Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal, will initially target energy sources like advanced solar thermal power, wind power technologies and enhanced geothermal

The company says it will be also be looking to hire engineers, and partner with various entrepreneurs and technologists with expertise in a broad range of areas, including: materials science, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, land acquisition and management, power transmission and substations, construction, and (of course) regulatory issues.
