Indian Innovators in the Fore-front of Green Technology

March 7, 2010

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.
