General Electric and Urban Green Energy, a wind turbine maker, have installed the world’s first integrated wind-powered charging station for electric vehicles. The Sanya Skypump, which pairs UGE’s vertical wind turbines with GE’s electric vehicle charging technology, was installed at the headquarters of Cespa, in Barcelona. Cespa is the environmental services subsidiary of Ferrovial Servicios, a private transportation infrastructure investor.

Samsung has announced a product and services alliance with FreeBalance, an Ottawa, Canada-based provider of planning software. The partnership portfolio covers the entire spectrum of open government, transparency, public financials, procurement, revenue, and human resources management. The alliance leverages the Samsung “open innovation” model to make e-government and public financial management financially sustainable for emerging economy governments.

AT&T is calling on drivers to take a no-texting and driving pledge by going to itcanwait.org, and then share their promise with others via Twitter and Facebook. The pledge effort is part of the company’s public awareness campaign aimed at stopping the dangerous practice of texting while driving.
