SUCCESS STORIES

Transform Energy

Transform Energy utilizes a market-based approach to end poverty and climate change, creating micro franchises to generate green coal, a clean coal replacement.

Worldwide there are 1 billion people living on less than $3 a day in rural villages with very limited job prospects to improve their livelihood. They buy coal to use for cooking and heating which adds to environmental hazards. Transform Energy (TE) partners with local entrepreneurs to build simple kilns which they own to manufacture green coal and sell as a clean energy resource, which will directly impact poverty and climate change.

TE creates social entrepreneurship opportunities, where rural entrepreneurs own the kilns which produce green coal. As a direct replacement for traditional coal, our green coal is made entirely from renewable resources, like invasive mesquite trees. Produced and sold for profit, green coal will reduce carbon emissions while generating income for local villagers and profit for Transform Energy.

Following the mission and vision of Paul Polak, Transform Energy will transform climate change and help millions of people permanently escape poverty in the process. Paul’s business solution to poverty, which has been deployed for over 35 years now and empowers over 30 million people living on <$2/day to lift themselves out of poverty.

Transform Energy has successfully developed a radically decentralized energy option that uses selected species of biomass, effectively processed into green coal, to replace much of the current coal use without the negative impact on the climate. We use torrefaction, the science of converting biomass into a coal-like product, just like roasting coffee. This will make a profound impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that impact the climate.

The innovation is implementing the technology in thousands of distributed villages close to the biomass source. TE will create thousands of new job opportunities in the developing world where local entrepreneurs can own and operate the village kilns, making green coal infinitely sustainable and scalable into the future. This creation of new jobs will be in areas where poverty is deeply entrenched, effectively lifting millions more out of poverty.

Factotum Brewhouse

The concept of Factotum Brewhouse was first imagined when siblings Christopher and Laura Bruns met their other brother and sister for dinner. As it usually goes when the four congregate, several beers were consumed and before long the idea of a homebrewer-driven craft brewery began to materialize. No strangers to the craft beer scene, Christopher and Laura began racking their minds, trying to think of any brewery—local or otherwise—that truly focused on homebrewers. Was there
