Octopus Energy Has Texas-Size Ambitions

"Octopus more than doubled its retail customer base over the last two years, acquired failed rivals including Bulb and Avro, and bought oil-and-gas giant Shell’s U.K and German retail utility businesses. The group’s businesses now include EV leasing, installation of smart meters and EV chargers, a heat pump manufacturer and a renewable-generation business with a $7.6 billion portfolio. It also has a fan club that offers local customers cheaper power when Octopus wind turbines in their area are turning."

These startups are teaming up to decarbonize cement and concrete

"Producing cement and concrete contributes around 8 percent of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions every year. About 40 percent of those emissions comes from fiery cement kilns that can get hotter than molten lava. The other 60 percent is the result of a chemical process. When limestone is heated to make cement, it breaks down into its constituent parts of calcium oxide and CO2, releasing planet-warming gases into the atmosphere."

These Startups Are Helping Carbon Dioxide Find a New Life

"Calgary-based CleanO2 transforms CO2 captured from building heating boilers into feedstock to make soap. Newlight Technologies, a biotechnology startup based in California, takes carbon pulled directly from the air and turns it into biodegradable plastics. Germany’s Covestro AG, one of the world’s largest polymer manufacturers, is also switching some of its fossil fuel-based feedstocks to carbon-derived materials for everything ranging from car shells to medical devices and stadium roofs."
