Kevin Bullis Editor

My reporting as MIT Technology Review’s senior editor for energy has taken me, among other places, to the oil-rich deserts of the Middle East and to China, where mountains are being carved away to build the looming cities.

Growing up, I lived for a time in the Philippines, where I knew people who lit their tiny homes with single lantern batteries or struggled to breathe through the dense diesel fumes of Manila, so I have a feel for the pressing need around the world for both cheap energy and clean energy.

  • Lithium-Ion Motorcycles

    Better batteries are making electric motorcycles possible, providing a cleaner alternative to pollution-spewing gas-powered bikes.

  • A Better Solar Collector

    Jonathan Mapel, cofounder of Covalent Solar, based in Cambridge, MA, uses commonly available plastic sheets to illustrate how a new solar concentrator works. He then shows a prototype of the new solar concentrator, which features advanced dyes that make it highly efficient.

  • Energy Loans

    At a recent conference at the United Nations, the person in charge of the Department of Energy’s finances told Technology Review how his agency is pushing innovation.

  • Energy-Efficiency Technologies Panel

    The panel presented highlights of technologies and approaches to energy-efficient building, featuring John Sterman, Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management and engineering systems director, System Dynamics Group; Nicholas Gayeski, doctoral candidate in Building Technology Program; Walt Henry, Department of Facilities; and Harvey Michaels, Department of Urban Studies and Planning and MITEI. This discussion took place on January 14, 2009, as part of Energy Futures Week.
