A device that can charge your cell phone in 30 seconds? Now think bigger, to charging an electric vehicle in minutes. +Tesla Motors and +Elon Musk should take note.
Cell phone batteries take an hour to charge. StoreDot might have a solution.

No no, this is 1 year away, but it's one year away from next year.

All kidding aside, eventually someone will almost certainly come up with a much much better battery.  But, there is a big difference between an announcement for the purposes of pushing up stock values (or getting VC), and actual product.  We will see what happens with this one.

Philippe Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau, takes up the call of saving our seas with school programs based right here in #Miami .

I hope the +University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science  decides to partner with him as they once did with his grandfather. #STEM   #DeepSN

You know you're influential when the PhD you just connected with on Linkedin starts updating his profile to resemble yours. :)

Is the tide finally beginning to turn?
 
Has the CEO of NRG, David Crane, just come out in favor of #Cleantech and Micro-Grids?

Employment
  • Bioneer: Internationally recognized speaker and consultant on Biomass to Biogas, Bioenergy, and Biofuels.
    Thought Leader, 2008 - present
    Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Cleantech, and Biotech from Seattle to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy Energy Security task force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues. He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, the scientific journal Nature, and by Repower America. He is currently consulting on integrating Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants.
  • DARPA
    Biological Systems Engineer, 2012 - present
    Recruited by TED Fellow Dr. Rachel Armstrong, The mission is to realize interstellar flight before the year 2100. We will accomplish this objective by researching and developing the science and the technologies that will make interstellar flight a reality, igniting the public’s interest, and engaging with all those prepared to invest in interstellar exploration. I am responsible for designing and integrating an Aquaculture (Algae-based) system that will be used for capturing and recycling the CO2 & Wastewater from the crew. That Algae will be used for producing oxygen, clean water, fertilizer for edible plants, and ultimately food aboard the ship.
  • Cleantech Open
    Director, 2013 - 2014
    The mission of Cleantech Open Miami is to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs from all across Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America with big ideas that address today’s most urgent Energy, Economic, and Environmental challenges. (Including Agriculture, Water, and Waste) Since its founding in 2006, CTO has established itself as the leading force for accelerating clean technology entrepreneurs. Of the nearly 600 companies we have worked with, 80% remain viable today and they have gone on to raise external capital exceeding $660 million. By developing a network of more than 1,500 professional volunteers who are willing to lend time and expertise to entrepreneurs who may otherwise not be able to get their ideas off the ground, we are facilitating the growth of the Cleantech Industry and all the positive impact that will come from such technologies. We recruit and match leaders to mentor cleantech startups with growth opportunities in: • Renewable Energies • Energy Storage & Distribution • Energy Efficiency • Renewable Chemicals & Biobased Materials • Information Technologies • Green Building • Transportation • Agriculture, Water & Waste With seven active regions across the US these connections are truly global. A startup based in Miami can receive mentoring from an expert in Houston, license its technology to a strategic partner in California, and receive venture capital from New York. The Cleantech Open provides a platform for that kind of interaction and visibility. My team and I have taken Cleantech Open from having zero presence in Florida to statewide recognition in less than 6 months.

I went to Seacamp in 1976 and I still think about all that I learned back then. The whole experience was so wonderful that it gave me a love of Marine Biology and ultimately set me on the path to my career in Phycology (The study of #Algae). It would be really great if they held some sort of reunion once a year so we could all share our stories and encourage others.

When I go to a place like this I expect a Greek experience--food and music. What we got was club music played so loud it was difficult to talk (and we were sitting outside) and mediocre food that was barely mediterranean. What I will give them credit for was the service. The staff was very attentive. Would I recommend this place? That depends on what you are wanting. If you want a place to celebrate a special occasion in a really fun way then this is the place for you; Just don't go there expecting a great foodie experience.

I don't know what these other reviewers are talking about. I toured this place over 2 years ago while I was staying at Gran Melia. It was under construction then although it looked as though work had been halted. It still looks very much the same way. Nothing is completed.

This place exceeded my every expectation. Everything was immaculate. The staff was really courteous and helpful. Even the bed was comfortable! We will definitely be returning and telling everyone about our experience.

This place serves THE Best Damn Coffee in all of South Florida. Try one of the regionally grown coffees BEFORE adding any cream or sugar for a truly exceptional experience. The food was all made with fresh ingredients. I will definitely be returning often.
