Bill Gates Expands his Technology Interests into the Green Car Sector

EcoMotors International, an EcoCAR bronze sponsor, recently received a $23.5 million boost from Microsoft giant, Bill Gates, and Khosla Ventures. The funding will allow EcoMotors to finish the development of their opoc engine technology.

Read the full story, here.
