Indian Innovators in the Fore-front of Green Technology

Following link points to a good article by Thomas Friedman on serial innovators K.R. Sridhar and Vinod Khosla on their Green Startups.

Dreaming the impossible Dream

The article talks about how America even in the times of recession provides scope for innovators to dream their dream.

Reading the article I felt really proud for the two Indians, on what they have accomplished. The whole world is talking about green energy and green tech, these gentlemen have done something incredible with doing much talking.

Vinod Koshla’s startup Calera converts CO2 (Carbon-di-oxide) generated by power plants to CaCO3 (Calcium Carbonate) bricks, avoiding the CO2 emission to the atmosphere.

K.R. Sridhar has been on news after he featured on 60 minutes. His start-up Bloom Energy, has a green solution called Bloom Box. Bloom boxes generates electricity at 8 to 10 cents a kilowatt of electricity using Natural gas or Bio-gas.

I wish them a grand success in their endeavors. We’ll need many more such innovation to save our planet and to provide everyone clean and affordable energy solutions.

  2. “Indian Innovators” ? ? ?
    Vinod is a Venture capitalist and Prakash is an innovator. But none of them are Indian in the context of this article. They were born here and studied in India. But they had to go out to become what they are today since

    a) Indians cannot innovate
    b) Other Indians won’t let Indians innovate.

    Dont believe me?
    The facts are here http://www.chetanprasad.com/blog

    Inspite of the misleading title, the fact remains that they deserve the kudos offered in the rest of the article.
