The Currency of Entrepreneurship is Connections

Leaders in Energy recently co-hosted an Energy Technology ”Petting Zoo” with Potential Energy DC, an energy incubator, in Tyson’s Corner, in the Metro Washington, DC area. It was an exciting evening with numerous energy and environmental entrepreneurs displaying their business products and technologies. These ranged from an “Iron Goat” that cuts and pelletizes biomass feedstocks, including grass, to Yuck Old Paint, LLC™, which is the first and only company in the mid-Atlantic region that offers a green service to safely remove and dispose of old cans of paint from commercial and residential properties in an eco-friendly manner, to battery energy storage devices (Tumalow, Ecocell), and more.
