We seek cheaper clean energy for prosperity, economic competitiveness, and the opportunity to restore the environment. We develop and champion technologies to address energy and climate, quick enough to avert a possible 2050 Ocean acidification plankton collapse, securing Spaceship Earth's life support systems for the long haul, for sure, with engineering safety margin. Cheap, pollution-free energy can draw down greenhouse gases to the Holocene's known-safe 300 ppm level. Technologies of focus include: Grid stabilization using Distributed Energy Resources (DER). Innovative nuclear fission, including the Molten Salt Reactor. Electrochemistry, materials, for battery storage.
