“The future in energy is going to be a business becoming the GE” of alternative technologies, Bob Walker believes. He’s trying to make Bixby Energy Systems that kind of company, with biomass energy at its core and a growing portfolio of other renewable and clean energy systems.
At Bixby Energy Systems, he's starting with corn-burning stoves but expects ultimately to change the way homes, businesses, and power plants run. If his biomass fuels reduce global warming, it won't be because it's a good cause, Walker says, but because it's good business.
