Tony Robbins Bet $200 Million on a Green-Energy Breakthrough. Proof It Works Remains Elusive.

Scott Patterson and Amrith Ramkumar of The Wall Street Journal report on Tony Robnins’s investment in emerging clean tech.

The C3 Take
  • Tony Robbins has invested nearly $200 million in Omnis, a company developing innovative technology to potentially convert coal into clean-burning hydrogen.
  • The project aims to revitalize a defunct coal-fired power plant in West Virginia, potentially creating jobs and advancing clean energy solutions.
  • Omnis’s technology, if successful, could revolutionize the energy industry by producing hydrogen at a fraction of the current cost and generating large quantities of synthetic graphite, a crucial component for electric vehicle batteries.

“What differentiates Omnis’s method from others, Hodson said, is that it plans to heat coal to temperatures as high as 5,500 degrees Fahrenheit—about half the temperature at the sun’s surface and twice what is required to make steel. The superhigh heat, he said, will convert coal into higher-quality carbon products, such as graphite.”
