Amazon Web Services (AWS) Tests Tesla Batteries
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is reportedly testing US electric car and electric vehicle company Tesla's new battery designs. Only yesterday Tesla announced the introduction of new rechargeable lithium-ion battery technology designed to store solar energy and change how power is used in homes and businesses throughout the United States.

Tesla Energy for Businesses anticipates and discharges stored power during a facility’s times of highest usage, reducing the demand charge component of the energy bills," explained Telsa Motor's website.

Obviously, if effective Tesla's new battery technology could prove beneficial to energy devouring data centers, and a number of reports have suggest AWS has been looking into Mr. Musk's claims over the last year. It is involved in a pilot study in Northern California and has suggested it aims to fully utilize renewable energy throughout its infrastructure whenever possible.
