The world of industrial materials needs to be reinvented in ways that eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. Batteries, cement, steel, ammonia and may others must get on a sustainable path.

No one has done more to bring science and commerce together to address that challenge than Dr. Yet-Ming Chiang, an MIT engineering and materials science professor, prolific researcher, and co-founder  of two climate tech unicorns, Form Energy (long-duration energy storage, raised $368.8M) and Desktop Metal (metal 3D printing, raised $811.8M), as well as several other climate startups.

I am very much looking forward to interviewing Dr. Chiang at the SOSV Climate Tech Summit (October 25-26 / free and virtual / Register now). We will discuss what Dr. Chiang has learned in the course of turning technology from the lab into blockbuster startups, what he sees as ‘white spaces’ in climate tech, and what developments are shaking up materials science today.

Dr. Chiang leads the newly established MIT Climate Grand Challenge project Center for electrification and decarbonization of industry, which is unifying climate efforts across MIT in order to get  the most promising projects to full commercialization within five years. He also as well as co-founded rising stars and notables Sublime Systems (decarbonizing cement and concrete), 24M Technologies (energy storage systems for grid and transportation applications), A123 Systems (automotive lithium-ion solutions) and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC, grid-wide power electronics and superconductor systems). 

Dr. Chiang  has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and obtained 100 patents
