Dynapower CEO Adam Knudsen recently sat down with Jenny Gladman and Ben Sparks , Founding Partner and VP, respectively, with Brightsmith , cleantech and energy transition search specialists. Adam was a guest on their Conversations in Cleantech podcast, a program which offers insight into the opportunities, challenges and rewards of working in the cleantech space from the investors, leaders, entrepreneurs, accelerators & technologists within it. The podcast in its entirety is available at this link…below are some excerpts to provide a flavor of the wide-ranging content the trio covered.
We are technologists
We are continuously pressing product development, advanced features, different functionality within the product offering. I like to use as analogy that we’re surfing. If you’re not aggressive enough, you fall off the wave in the back. If you’re too far forward, well, then you crash forward, right? It’s really is about maintaining the right balance of pressing the envelope, being continuously legitimate and impactful. And in order to do that, you need to have the whole recipe together. You have to have the technology velocity, right? And in the world of physics and engineering, velocity is magnitude, but also direction.
We have passion
Around Dynapower, we talk about passion for purpose and powering a cleaner planet and powering a safer planet. And one of my favorites is a rallying cry that’s “Let’s power ahead boldly”. And when I look at let’s power ahead boldly, I see that idea reflects our evolution over the last decades – we don’t shy away from the world’s most challenging power conversion issues.
Dynapower…we help make planes. We help make cars. We help make energy in the grid. We do really advanced power conversion systems for material science experiments within the US National Science Lab. And we also do large -scale applications within the industrial and chemical space. You couldn’t wash your clothes without Dynapower. And obviously, on the hydrogen side, you couldn’t have a foundational change in the global fuel source for carbon -free fuel source for our planet’s needs for energy without Dynapower.
