Energy: Global energy demand is at an unsustainable rate. At this rate, the world will lock itself in an insecure, inefficient, and high-carbon energy system. Thus, innovations are needed to produce energy without consumption of non-renewable energy source. Free volt technology can be a solution to such a problem.
Energy: Climate change calls for the need to lessen our carbon footprint. One such way to do so is through biofuels. Biofuels are significantly cleaner than their petroleum alternatives, producing much less CO2 emissions. As a result, innovative ways to produce biofuels is needed to combat climate change.
Water: Clean water is a basic necessity for everyone’s standard of living. It is needed for basic health and nutrition. However, in places like India, millions do not have access to clean water. In fact, India has the world’ highest number of people without access to clean water. Thus, innovative ways to distribute clean water in places like India is needed.
Energy: Complying with energy demands can be a problem with solar or wind power sources. For example, wind blows at unpredictable times and sunshine can vary greatly due to weather and season. Thus, energy generation by these renewable sources cannot always match with fluctuating energy demands. It is why energy storage of these renewable energy sources is needed.

Energy: The world’s demand for energy will increase greatly in the coming century as the developing world is expected to have the same standard of living as the developed word. Thus, to meet enormous energy demands across the world and adhere to a necessary clean source of energy, fusion power can be an answer. .
Fusion power releases no carbon dioxide, and the only byproduct is helium which is harmless
The fuel for fusion power is derived from water, which is abundant
General Fusion Inc.’s fusion reactor doesn’t need state-of-the-art lasers or football-field-sized facilities like government- funded fusion reactions making it economical and scalable
General Fusion plans to outpace government-funded fusion reactors, which will only start experimenting by 2025

Michel Laberge spent a couple of years developing the idea of a new fusion reactor of through a small prototype and founded General Fusion in 2001
General Fusion Inc. displayed the small prototype and acquired investments from venture capitalists to continue research on the fusion reactor
For the next phase, General Fusion Inc. is looking to construct a full-scale prototype system to test sooner than that of government-funded fusion reactor prototypes, which are looking to test b y 2025
Energy: The fashion industry is noted for heavily using resources at an unsustainable rate. It can take 10,000 liters of waters to produce just a single t-shirt or 8,000 different chemicals to turn raw materials in to clothes. Thus, renewable sources of materials to make clothing are needed.
As a result, the electric car has been seen a viable option as an environmentally sound technology that would produce low to zero carbon emissions to reduce overall emissions from transportation. However, electric cars have long been seen as a nuisance since they did not have the capacity to move cars very far when compared to gasoline-powered cars. To combat this, Tesla has ushered in a new wave of electric cars, that include both high performance and green technology.
