According to the International Energy Agency, three quarters of the energy used by industry is not in the form of electricity. It's in the form of heat. And that industrial heat accounts for about a quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. But what if we could turn low-cost, intermittent wind and solar energy into continuous heat and succes…
 
Historically, it has been challenging for solar and wind developers to find an appropriate parcel of land, conduct an accurate valuation, and then make contact with the landowner.
