The grass is always greener when it powers your world.


UP incubates renewable energy startup, BioVolt.

The BioVolt venture represents three years in research and development, from validating the business concept, market and technology viability, through scientific research and discovery, business plan creation, design engineering and prototyping. BioVolt represents a transformative opportunity to disrupt not merely the renewable energy space, but the outmoded concept of the grid through a

non-combustion based thermoelectric reactor, rooted in proven science. By pairing known technology and biological processes with modern IoT and blockchain enabled software,

BioVolt facilitates a first of its kind decentralized, continuous, green energy system, unlike anything currently available in market. For UP this transformative solution represented a perfect match, an opportunity to disrupt.

BioVolt is currently in the midst of design engineering and prototyping. The executive summary, research, and business plan with full financials may be furnished upon request. To get involved or learn more about the BioVolt project click the following link below.




BioVolt converts readily available, localized, biomass that would otherwise go to waste, without any combustion, into a continual stream of on location, renewable, green energy, producing it cheaper than any other privatized energy system currently available.

Change must happen,

but intermittent solutions like solar and wind can not close the gap alone. There has to be another way.

Current US Electricity Consumption

33% Coal

33% Natural Gas

20% Nuclear

7% Renewables

6% Hydropower

>2% Other

50% Reduction in all fosil fuel and nuclear consumption

500% growth in renewables needed, just over half total energy profile, of which 65% MUST be in continuous power solutions.

Currently none exist.

Ceiling for growth in intermittent solutions like wind and solar to maintain needed redundancy can not expand beyond 25% of the total energy demand.

20% Fewer Dams

Desired US Electricity Usage Profile By the Year 2030 Including an Estimated 20% Increase in Consumption


Mandate for change already exists, but how can this be responded to when the vast majority of renewable solutions in market are intermittent systems?


BioVolt is able to respond to the energy gap with an ecologically sustainable, continuous

energy system.




Decentralized, localized power generation is the key to unlocking the almost limitless, renewable resource of biomass.

The annual domestic yield in

biomass in

the US could supply up to


of our total energy requirement

8,980 Million Tons a year

 equivalent to 460.3mm terawatts

of potential electricity.


With such an immense renewable resource, why haven’t widespread implementations of biomass solutions propagated already?


Biomass generally does not conform to the centralized, outmoded model of the grid, due to the high cost of transport and processing.


BioVolt solves this problem for biomass through the genius of a decentralized, localized model for power generation.


BioVolt has significant advantages over other renewable energy systems.





• Low Entry Cost

• Widespread Availability and Distribution of Suitable Biomass  Headstock

• Free Energy Source Supplied Directly By Consumer.

• No Rare Earth Element Dependance

• Carbon Neutral, non combustion system.

• Only Biannual Headstock Restocking

• Continual    Output System

• Positive ROI W/O Subsidization

• Easy Plug & Play Upgrade Ability

• Solid State Low Maintenance Tech, W/ Long Life & Low Operating Cost 

• Few Geographic Limitations

• Market Adoption Ready, Easy Implementation.

• Simple & Safe

• Efficient W/ High Power Returns


• High Entry Cost

• Limited Access & Rights to Suitable Water Source & Adequate Head. 


• Reliant on Gas. (A Volatile Commodity) Stuck paying the Gas Company Instead of Power Company

• Dependence on

Rare Earth

Elements Limits Growth Potential


• Combustion Models Requiring High Volume of Preprocessed Headstock That Must be Continuously Fed.

• High Pollution Output Systems 


• Intermittent Solution Reliance on Redundancy

• Net Negative ROI W/O Subsidization

• Geographic Limitations

• Dependence on Rare Earth Elements Limits Growth Potential 

• High  Cost of Entry    

DISADVANTAGE• Intermittent Solution Reliance on Redundancy

• Net Negative ROI W/O Subsidization

• Geographic Limitations

• High Cost of Entry 

• Sensitive Gear Boxes/Moving Parts Drive Frequent Service & Maintenance Requirements & Have Short Lifespan

DISADVANTAGE• Not Ready For Consumer Market

• Power Output Still Lower Than Power Input Required

• Perceptual Safety Hazard in Spite of Difference Between Fusion & Fission Technology


Renewable energy has never been more top of mind in our culture than it is today, and yet been equally so far out of reach for so many.

TAM $500B+

BioVolt projects penetration of

.01% OVER 3 Years = $865.9MM EBITDA


So why the gigantic gap between aspiration and attainability?

What is inhibiting adoption of renewable energy? 


Simply put, cost and availability. 

As long as renewable solutions are intermittent and dependent on RARE earth elements they will fail to be realistic options for the majority of consumers.


Market activation is achieved by penetrating early adoption segments, which in turn reciprocally open the next.


Grass roots initiative softens regulatory compliances and expedites adoption across the agricultural community.

WOM spreads awareness through rural communities opening private sector markets, while content marketing extends it.

Increase public awareness through public exposure throughout parks and academia.

Surge in biomass use

activates need for biomass residuals exchange.


Land + Parks

Early Adopters: with mandates to implement

solutions like BioVolt.

Ranching + Agriculture

Early Majority: one of the largest vertical industries in the world.

Middle America + The Private Sector

Late Majority: rural American households comprise more than 56% of the total US population.

Forest Products

Late Adopters: activate new offerings.


BioVolt is a simple 3 part system based on proven technology and capable of generating a continuous stream of electricity. With no need of rare earth elements and an interlinking, scalable, design, BioVolt is as cost effective to produce as it is for consumers to buy.



BioVolt liquid cools the opposing side of the thermoelectric arrays by simply passing dielectric fluid via natural convection through a scalable bank of radiators.

Thermoelectric cells are cheap, simple, solid state devices, that convert heat energy directly into electricity. BioVolt combines these individual cells into 1.5Kw stackable banks.


Biomass in. Fertilizer out. Cellulose devouring bacteria, insulated within the reactor, maintain a continuous heat output of 180˚F, regardless of climate or time of day.
