in this episode of conversations in cleantech, we’re joined by daria hedberg, business development and esg manager at geyser batteries.

 

geyser batteries are taking charge of the future by creating high-power, heavy-duty, energy storage solutions based on novel proprietary water-based electrolytes through unique engineering and manufacturing know-how.

 

energy storage is a key part of the clean power puzzle, and through their innovation, geyser are providing an option that is safe, sustainable and designed for use at scale for the transportation, heavy machinery and power grid sectors.

 

with an unconventional yet and inspiring entry into cleantech, daria has a passion for what she does that shines through in this conversation.

 

in this episode, she discusses the importance of aligning your purpose, mission and values to where you work, provides insight into making career choices, her unique take on living your purpose, the future of batteries and cleantech, plus her thoughts on creating an inclusive and equal environment with the tech and engineering spaces.
