Ron is President and CEO of Vancouver-based Zinc8 Energy Solutions, a company determined to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable, secure, and resilient energy sources by providing low cost, long-duration energy storage solution.
In case, like myself, you know little about zinc-air batteries before, these are metal-air batteries powered by oxidizing zinc with oxygen from the air. They have high energy densities and are relatively inexpensive to produce. But Zinc8 have turned them into something far more disruptive.
Ron told me “I have never been involved in anything that excites him as much as Zinc8 – and he has had a pretty exciting life”.
