“The revolution in renewables, and the transition to low-carbon energy sources, is undeniable.” Our hearts are aflutter after reading Forbes’ 30 Under 30 In Energy roundup. The reason? This year’s list of hot players in the energy sector focuses heavily on technology that’s crucial to the growth of sustainable power: batteries.
Nine of this year’s finalists are focused on finding ways to store and deploy renewable energy. One is developing drone batteries that pull double duty as structural elements. Another has found a way to recycle the materials used in electronics that may offer a cheaper alternative to mining them. And another has developed lower-cost, higher-performance technology for industrial-scale batteries — and he’s only 19!
All younger than 30, all dedicated to advancing the renewable-energy sector. Read about them and the rest of the bunch here.
