  • Tesla unveils battery to ‘transform energy infrastructure’

    Electric car pioneer Tesla unveiled a "home battery" Thursday which its founder Elon Musk said would help change the "entire energy infrastructure of the world". The Tesla Powerwall can store power from solar panels, from the electricity grid at night when it is typically cheaper, and provide a secure backup in the case of a power outage. In theory the device, which typically would fit on the wall of a garage or inside a house, could make solar-powered homes completely independent of the traditional energy grid. "The goal is complete transformation of the entire energy infrastructure of the world, to completely sustainable zero carbon," Mr Musk told reporters shortly before unveiling the Powerwall in a stylish warehouse space outside Los Angeles.

When Kenya got its independence in December 1963, the incoming independence government popularised the slogan "uhuru na kazi" (freedom and hard work).
