      Princeton Grad from Dartmouth Nears 'Holy Grail' of Green Energy Storage

      When Danielle Fong was taking her PhD in plasma physics at Princeton University at the age of 17, she wasn’t driven to be the best — she was driven by an urgency to solve the world’s energy problem. Though she missed her mother’s cooking back home in Dartmouth — “My mom makes the best omelettes” — Fong focused on her mission to make green energy a practical reality for everyone. “Solving the energy problem is the problem of my generation,” she said Tuesday. And the 26-year-old believes she has come up with a way to do that — she just has to prove it to the industrial sector.

I can get the financing. The money will come if the right economics are there.” The former president of Home Depot Canada was in Halifax on Tuesday for the ninth annual Renewable Energy Conference. Her company, which started in July, is partnering with businesses that manufacture and integrate flywheel, compressed air and battery storage systems. The goal is to take energy being produced during non-peak hours, hold it and release it back to the grid when needed, she said.
