If we talk about innovation, technological advancements and success, it won’t be incorrect to say that Microsoft CEO Bill Gates, and Tesla Founder Elon Musk are on the same page. Both these entities are amongst the wealthiest and most powerful individuals on the planet, and have redefined the art of living for literally all of humanity. What if, both of the individuals could pool in their resources and expertise to achieve a certain goal ?
In the 5th Reddit AMA, with the release of Gate’s Foundation’s annual letter, he spoke about the potential collaboration between him and Elon Musk. A user asked him, “if you could create a new IP and business with Elon Musk, what would you make happen?” Gates replied that he would want to focus on developing green, consistent energy sources. “We need clean, reliable cheap energy — which we don’t have. It is too bad the sun doesn’t shine all the time and the wind doesn’t blow all the time. … So we need some invention — perhaps miracle batteries or super safe nuclear or making sun into gasoline directly.”
Tesla is planning for more battery factories and is on track to launch solar roofs after bringing Solar City into its fold last summer, so maybe Gates’s vision isn’t far behind.
