Really the title says it all. But I hadn’t noticed much out of the Italian company for some time, and then noticed a tweet. I dug around their site for a while and found some cool stuff, plus a press release I’ve been looking for for a while. Looks like they are still working on the Energica project, which is good news! I am just going to quote their press releases in chronological order.
