The future is now. Skeleton Technologies produces ultracapacitors that lasts 500 times longer than lithium-ion batteries and packs in more power even though they much lighter. Step aside for the energy storage devices of the future.
Envelio’s main objective is to contribute to a cost-effective shift in the current energy system in Germany. With their digital intelligent grid platform, envelio offers the planning and operation of networks in a more flexible and efficient manner.
The rate of deforestation in Kenya is alarming. Trees are burned for charcoal, the main source of cooking fuel, which is also responsible for harmful indoor pollution. Kenyan startup Acacia Innovations aims to tackle both of the issues.
The demand for electric vehicles has boomed in the past couple of years, and so has the need for charging stations for these vehicles. Xcharge is solving this problem by innovating and producing various smart charging stations throughout China and Europe in the future.
We see cars powered by natural gas, ethanol or solar power, but hydrogen once promoted as the clean fuel of the future, has yet to meet its promise. A Vancouver-based company came up with a solution to utilize waste hydrogen to solve the decarbonization dilemma.
Farmers throughout African countries face numerous problems including limited rainfall, high energy costs, and more. SunCulture solves this challenge by creating a low cost, solar powered water extracting and irrigation system for these farmers to bring sustainable agriculture into the country.
In this category, you will find information about the GreenTech industry. This includes articles about how new and existing startups are using technology to help build a more environmentally-friendly world.GreenTech refers to technology that is considered environmentally friendly based on its production process or supply chain. Similarly to CleanTech and energy transition, it also refers to more sustainable and renewable means of energy production.GreenTech has risen to prominence due to the increasingly negative effects of global warming on the planet. It involves products and services that are less harmful to the environment than more traditional ways of generating energy, such as burning fossil fuels.Examples of green technology in production include processes to recycle water or waste in the manufacturing process and the installation of energy-efficient fixtures such as LED light bulbs and flush-less toilets. Other green technologies involve sustainable energy such as that generated from solar panels, wind turbines or hydroelectric dams.Articles on this page showcase GreenTech startups that aim to positively impact the physical state of the earth. For example, companies tackling deforestation in Kenya through sugarcane waste, or using hydrogen fuel to power a cleaner future.
