SaltX CEO Karl Bohman, who is attending Bloomberg’s Future Energy Summit to give a speech and receive the award in New York City today, says:

“Being an Bloomberg New Energy Pioneer means of course a great honor and helps putting SaltX on the map, but it also means a great responsibility for making the sustainable energy revolution happen. We at SaltX promise to work tirelessly – and we will not stop – until our low-cost, scalable and natural energy storage technology is used on a global basis.” 

Michael Wilshire, chairman of the election committee and head of strategy at Bloomberg New Energy Finance, highlights:

“This year, we were delighted to receive a record number of strong candidates for the New Energy Pioneers program, drawn from 47 different countries […]”. Mr. Wilshire adds:

“We are very encouraged by the innovation, determination and creativity shown by these Pioneers and by the potential that they have to help transform the energy and transport systems.
