Here’s the 13 biggest things I paid attention to this year around next-generation energy, sustainability, and resource management. Oh heck, let’s just keep calling it cleantech.
In 2012 beleaguered Fisker actually had $170 million in income from sales of its electric cars. That makes the fall of Fisker just that more painful.
Many months after it was expected, Fisker Automotive finally filed for bankruptcy, and in doing so revealed some more unusual names on its creditor list.
The DOE is auctioning off the rest of Fisker’s loan commitment. Anyone want it? Bids are due October 7th.
Venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins is getting rid of a small, early investment from back in 2005 in a highly controversial energy storage startup called EEStor.
Is $20 million the final valuation of electric car maker Fisker Automotive? Yikes, that’s what a group is reportedly bidding on Fisker for, and which would be less than 1% of its original valuation.
We’ve got the results of our survey on how Fisker’s struggles could affect the electric car market, government incentives and cleantech investing. Check out my 21-page report I wrote for GigaOM Pro, and some of the teasers in this post.
Here’s the details of the class action lawsuit filed against Coda Automotive that I referenced yesterday: it’s a complaint that Coda Automotive allegedly violated the WARN Act, that requires large employers to give employees 60 days written notice of mass layoffs.
Like Fisker Automotive, electric car company Coda Automotive is getting hit with lawsuits. It’s got over a half dozen filed within the last couple of months.
Fisker Automotive seems to be close to bankruptcy and just went through a hearing on Capital Hill. We invite GigaOM Readers to share their thoughts on the electric vehicle maker and how this news will affect the larger cleantech sector.
