I’m Pumped . . .

new-energyVery cool. It’s been a long time since I’ve been so excited about being invited to a meeting. But this is a special meeting, the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, a chance to network with some of nation’s most innovative inventors and forward-looking business and government types, all dedicated to speeding our world toward better, cleaner, more efficient and sustainable energy systems. More about ARPA-E here. And check out my fellow speakers: summit-speakers-press-release-final-draft-11-28-2016. What a group! I’ll be talking about the lessons that old technology can teach us — Haber-Bosch and how a single breakthrough discovery can change the world — but spending most of my time checking out the stuff that might just usher in a new era.  And one of my friends and I have been working on a few ideas of our own that you might be hearing more about later.
