Amber Kinetics is a low cost flywheel energy storage system, developing a flywheel system from sub-scale research prototype to full-scale mechanical flywheel battery and will conduct both a commercial-scale and a utility-scale demonstration. Amber Kinetics’ aim is to deliver a cost-effective prototype flywheel system that can be grid connected and electrically charged and discharged. The system has built-in sensing components that determines frequency and voltage characteristics of the grid and overrides the grid signal to manage the amount of electricity discharged. Amber Kinetics’ flywheel stores energy in a spinning rotor that is connected to an electric motor that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. To recover the energy the motor is electrically reversed and used as a generator to slow down the flywheel converting the mechanical energy back into electrical energy. Amber Kinetics improves the traditional flywheel system by engineering breakthroughs in three areas, magnetic bearings, low-cost rotor, and high-efficiency motor generator. Its technology can also be used to optimize existing infrastructure. Amber Kinetics was founded by [Seth Sanders](https://www.crunchbase.com/person/seth-sanders-2). It is based in California City, California.
Ambri, Inc. (formerly Liquid Metal Battery Corporation (LMBC)) is an early-stage company working to develop and commercialize a new battery technology that will revolutionize grid-scale power storage. Their battery has the potential to cost significantly less than existing batteries. By decoupling power supply and power demand, the liquid metal battery will be a major enabler of the widespread use of sustainable energy sources and the development of more efficient power systems. Ambri was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Marlborough, Massachusetts, United States.

Bidgely (which means "electricity" in Hindi) is a highly energetic and innovative startup working on something that has never been done before. They have developed ground-breaking analytics that can itemize home energy usage data to the appliance level without using any plug-level monitors. Now, they are setting out to deliver this technology to millions of households across the world and help save energy on a massive scale.
Biki is Honolulu’s new transportation system, brought to you by Bikeshare Hawaii. Launched in late June 2017, Biki has 1,000 bikes at 130 conveniently located self-service “Biki Stops” from Chinatown to Diamond Head. Biki bikes are designed to be easy to maneuver, comfortable and fun to ride, while accommodating riders of all sizes. Honolulu is the first city in the world to have this new generation of bike.
BlocPower is an energy technology startup that develops healthier, greener, and smarter buildings. It leverages advanced technologies, innovative electrification equipment, and structured finance to provide green heating and cooling to urban buildings. The company also connects government agencies, utilities, building owners, and smart equipment providers to identify unhealthy, energy-wasting buildings to retrofit. Its propriety machine learning platform then determines which retrofits will produce the most energy savings at scale and uses the cloud and IoT to gather data and remotely monitor energy consumption. Since its founding, BlocPower has completed energy projects in nearly 1,000 buildings and delivers results ahead of schedule and under budget. It utilizes its proprietary software for analysis, leasing, project management, and monitoring of urban clean energy projects and its customers are saving 20-40% on their energy bills each year. The company is backed by top investors, including Kapor Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact, AccelR8, The Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, Elemental Excelerator, CityRock Venture Partners, The Schmidt Family Foundation, and Salesforce Ventures. Donnel Baird and Morris Cox co-founded the company in Brooklyn, New York in 2014.
