      Transform Utilities to Smooth the Way to a New Energy Future

      What will the energy system look like 20 years from now—in 2035? Well, it will certainly be less carbon intensive, more distributed, and more electric. If you think about it, electric utilities right now are where the telecomm companies were in the 1980s. The telcos had a comfortable, regulated monopoly, and then a wave of innovation in the form of cellular and Internet technology came at them and disrupted their business model. Some adapted and some didn’t. That’s what we’re seeing now in the utilities industry. And how this turns out will have a tremendous impact on the energy economy of 2035.

      With Australian Partner, Boulder Ionics Looks to Improve Batteries

      Building better batteries is one of the biggest challenges in cleantech—if not all of tech. Experts believe more efficient and stable energy storage systems could make electric vehicles cheaper and safer, allow the military to power vital equipment, and create ways for utilities to store excess energy they generate. Boulder Ionics, a startup based in Arvada, CO, is taking up the challenge, along with a partner in Australia, following a licensing agreement announced Wednesday.
