After Losing $42 Million, DOE Decides To Lend $16 Million

The Energy Department has announced that it’s giving $16 million to seventeen U.S. companies to capture energy from waves, tides and currents.

This comes on the heels of the department’s announcement that it already lost $42 million on a $50 million loan guarantee given to a van manufacturing company that was supposed to make natural gas-powered vehicles.

“Wave and tidal energy represent a large, untapped resource for the United States and responsible development of this clean, renewable energy source is an important part of our all-of-the-above energy strategy,” said David Danielson, assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy.

How much money are we, as voters, going to let the DOE piss away on stupid technoligies that haven't been researched.
