Worried about how the lack of accessible data storage for energy producers impacts energy startups, Elena Lucas decided to find a solution. Elena is a co-founder and CEO of UtilityAPI, a startup that wrangles energy data and delivers it to the companies who need it—and has brought the cost of installing solar panels down by 5 to 10 percent. Lucas believes that more opportunities should be open for women in tech-related fields, making a point to employ an equal number of women and men at UtilityAPI. Photo credit: Grist
