Form Energy is developing a new class of cost-effective, multi-day energy storage systems that will enable a reliable and fully-renewable electric grid year-round. Our pioneering battery technology will entirely reshape the global electric system and give it new form.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems
Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) has the fastest, lowest cost path to commercial fusion energy. CFS is collaborating with MIT to leverage decades of research combined with new groundbreaking high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet technology. HTS magnets will enable compact fusion power plants that can be constructed faster and at lower cost. CFS is now building SPARC, the world's first commercially relevant, net energy fusion demonstration device. SPARC will pave the way for the first fusion power plant, ARC, that will produce power on the grid. The ultimate mission is to deploy fusion power plants to meet global decarbonization goals as fast as possible. CFS has assembled a team of leaders in tough tech, fusion science, and manufacturing with a track record of rapid execution. Supported by the world’s leading investors, CFS is uniquely positioned to deliver limitless, clean, fusion power to combat climate change.
iSee, an MIT spin-off, is paving the way for autonomous vehicles that can deal with unfamiliar situations and complex interactions on the road. Inspired by computational cognitive science, our humanistic artificial intelligence will seamlessly integrate into society and benefit human lives.
Lilac Solutions has developed a new ion exchange technology to address the challenges faced by lithium producers. Lilac's technology cuts capital and operating costs, accelerates project startup, boosts lithium recovery, and unlocks new resources. Their process is modular and can be ramped up quickly through pilot and commercial projects. Lilac is a mining technology company and is building partnerships with brine developers and operators around the world.
The Routing Company
The Routing Company is an on-demand vehicle routing and management platform that partners with cities to power the future of public transit. Made up of MIT researchers and ride-share industry veterans, The Routing Company builds smart, sustainable transit solutions that are more reliable and accessible than other mobility options.
Boston Metal is delivering a future where primary steel production is free of carbon emissions. Our Molten Oxide Electrolysis (MOE) technology provides the metals industry with a more efficient, lower cost, and greener solution for the production of a range of metals and alloys from a wide variety of feedstocks.
Biobot Analytics develops cutting-edge technology to transform sewers into public health observatories. Wastewater contains valuable information about the health of communities. We collect it. We analyze it. We tell you how to leverage it to make your city better. Our first product is to measure opioids and other drug metabolites in sewage to estimate consumption in cities. With this data, those working on harm reduction can assess the scope of the epidemic, allocate resources, and gauge the effectiveness of programming over time.
Sublime Systems is developing a breakthrough process to make carbon-neutral cement. The technology replaces the industry's legacy fossil-fuel intensive thermal calciner process with an electrochemical process that produces carbon-neutral lime at ambient temperatures with renewable electricity. Sublime was started in 2020, as a spin-out of Yet-Ming Chiang's lab at MIT (Form Energy, A123, American Superconductor, 24M, Desktop Metals).
VEIR is developing a new generation of High Temperature Superconductor (HTS)-based transmission lines. VEIR’s evaporative cooling architecture delivers 20 times the cooling power per kilogram of coolant flow compared to conventional approaches. VEIR’s innovations will enable reliable, low loss, cost–effective HTS-based transmission over long distances in narrow rights–of–way, connecting the lowest cost renewable power to where it’s needed, when it’s needed.
Zapata Computing is a quantum software company that offers computing solutions for industrial and commercial use. It provides hardware-agnostic solutions for simulation, optimization, and machine learning applications in chemistry, finance, logistics, pharmaceuticals, engineering, and materials. Zapata Computing is a spun out of Harvard University launched by a group of Harvard scientists, including Alán Aspuru-Guzik.
