General Motors is working with research partners to open the new National Tire Research Center next month. The facility uses state-of-the-art tire performance machinery to enable automakers and tire manufacturers to improve fuel efficiency through innovative tire design.

The federal government is selling leases for wind farms off the coasts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Virginia. It’s the first time competitive leases for wind energy on the outer continental shelf have been offered for sale. Each of two areas, which together total more than 430 square miles, could generate enough electricity to power 700,000 homes.
