Congratulations to Amy Prieto, founder of the first startup in Colorado State's Clean Energy Supercluster, Cenergy. Prieto Battery produces lithium batteries for electric/hybrid vehicles. The process that Amy, an assistant chemistry professor, invented is half as expensive to manufacture as current lithium battery technologies.
Bohemian Asset Management, a privately held division of the Fort Collins based Bohemian Companies, infused the company with the first round of funding. The less expensive, but highly effective technology, could change the way the whole lithium battery industry manufacturers their products. With more and more hybrid vehicles on the market, the potential for growth is exponential.
