The Power of the Simple Electron
Justin Hall-Tipping works on nano-energy startups – mastering the electron to create power.
Some of our most serious planetary worries revolve around energy and power – controlling it, paying for it, and the consequences of burning it. Justin Hall-Tipping had an epiphany about the need for finding and harnessing new forms of energy after seeing footage of a chunk of ice the size of his home state (Connecticut) falling off Antarctica into the ocean. A longtime investor, he formed Nanoholdings to work closely with universities and labs who are studying new forms of nano-scale energy in the four sectors of the energy economy: generation, transmission, storage and conservation.
