Peter and Dan discuss entrepreneurial breakthrough stories specifically in the energy industry. They talk about the importance of timing in launching a new venture and why the 2020’s will be the decade of exponential energy.

In this episode:

  • Peter mentions a company “Energy Vault” that is specializing in gravitational energy storage. Its primary product is a gravity battery that utilizes a multi-headed crane to store energy in a stacked tower of heavy blocks made from concrete.
  • Dan mentions that energy is becoming exponential, because as more and more energy is available, human aspirations for using energy increases.
  • Peter discusses another company “Heliogen” that is using concentrated solar energy to exceed temperatures greater than 1,000 degrees Celsius, transforming sunlight to create and replace fuels.
