#129: Accelerating Hydrogen Energy Solutions

Join Traver Kennedy, CEO of Joi Scientific to find out:

  • How nature (and the ocean, especially!) inspired the development of Joi Scientific’s patented hydrogen process and why Joi Scientific didn’t want to rely on government subsidies in developing their technology
  • The importance of creating local energy generation in the transition to a carbon-free economy and the execution challenges to bring Joi Scientific’s hydrogen 2.0 solution to scale
  • How hydrogen energy solutions can use existing energy infrastructure to minimize cost, speed up implementation and reduce disruption
  • Why partnerships and collaboration are key parts of Joi Scientific’s business model to bring their solution to scale
  • The environmental reason behind the development of Citrix’s GoToMeeting technology

Traver Kennedy is Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Joi Scientific, an emerging clean energy company committed to making clean and affordable hydrogen energy available to all. Before co-founding Joi Scientific, Traver was Chief Strategist at Citrix (NASDAQ: CTXS) where he was a driving force behind the company’s post-IPO growth, helping to establish it as one of the world’s largest S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100 software companies in record time. While at Citrix he founded and served as Chairman of the ASP Industry Consortium, an international advocacy group formed by 500 leading technology companies to set worldwide standards for the ASP (Application Service Provider) industry, which ultimately ushered in the cloud computing era. Many have labelled him the “Father of the ASP Industry.”

Traver’s efforts have earned him global recognition. The World Economic Forum named him a “Technology Pioneer” for his contributions to technology and society. He was also ranked by Network World as one of the “25 Most Powerful People” in technology alongside Bill Gates, John Chambers and Michael Dell.

Traver is passionate about environmental and humanitarian projects that range from ancient forest preservation in Ghana and coral reef protection in Haiti with One Village Planet, to establishing the world’s first Cyber Sister Cities to improve education, health and economic opportunities in developing communities with Sister Cities International and the World Bank Institute.
