Tesla plant said to spark new generation of scientists, engineers

RENO — A top Tesla executive told a Nevada business conference on Tuesday that energy technology is on the cusp of a renaissance that will change how the world generates and stores power.

Diarmuid O’Connell, vice president of business development for Tesla Motors, said the massive battery factory rising from the Nevada desert east of Reno will not only revolutionize energy storage but spark a new generation of scientists and engineers.

“This is really the future,” O’Connell told more than 600 people attending the Governor’s Business Conference held at the Atlantis in Reno.
