Hello Earthlings! In today’s episode, our host Lisa Ann Pinkerton (CEO of Technica Communications), and guest Daniel Flanigan (Chief Marketing & Product Officer at Erthos) explore the varied problems that come from switching to solar power as well as their exciting possible solutions! 

Solar energy, while promising, has not yet reached its full potential as a comprehensive energy solution for the future. Nonetheless, innovative companies like Erthos are at the forefront of advancing the solar sector. As Dan puts it, envision an "Uber for solar" model: Erthos is championing the development of highly efficient solar panels, complemented by ingenious placement and design tactics. Their ambition is to harmoniously blend automation with solar technology, aiming to create a more efficient, cleaner solar energy market.

In this week's feature on Restoring Our Faith in Humanity, we journey to London to applaud Dr. Wade's exceptional dedication to promoting female participation in STEM fields. Her notable work includes authoring over 1,750 Wikipedia biographies for remarkable women in STEM, many of whom had previously been overlooked. Moreover, Dr. Wade is actively involved in elevating the recognition of these talented individuals, nominating numerous top female and minority scientists for prestigious awards and fellowships, thus helping to correct historical underrepresentation in these areas. 

Key Topics: 

  • How is Erthos paving the way for more solar power utilization?
  • What are the current challenges in solar power?
  • How can we maximize energy output in solar panels while using fewer resources?
