NantEnergy (2008; Scottsdale AZ; ~500 staff;

 A renewable energy and battery company with a mission “to combine technology and nature to deliver reliable, affordable green energy to everyone.”  They have developed zinc-oxide batteries as an alternative to lithium-ion and lead-based batteries, combining these batteries with solar plants to reliably power remote installations like cell-phone towers or data-centers. Their systems are scalable from kWh to MWh to GWh of capacity. By using smart-software and “remote monitoring capabilities at the cell level, NantEnergy has developed a Zinc-Air that dramatically increases visibility into the performance of an overall system.” Many of their installations have been deployed in remote areas of developing countries without prior access to electricity.
