Maximizing Renewable Energy
Fighting Climate Change
The primary culprit driving climate change is the spike in carbon dioxide levels due to human activity. Energy production contributes fully one quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, with transportation adding an additional 14%.
Climate change effects are already being felt in increased weather volatility and more extreme weather events. Loss of species is accelerating, with as many as 1/6 of all species at risk for extinction by the end of the century. Already today, climate change impacts – including more extreme weather events, changed patterns of disease and effects on agricultural production – are estimated to cause over 150,000 deaths annually in developing countries.
Imagine an electric grid powered by 100% renewable energy, and then extend that grid to power the transportation sector. To achieve this requires innovative technologies that allow renewables to be stored and dispatched at all times, even when the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining. This is what we aim to enable.
