Pioneer in alternative fuels, energy remembered
Iris and her husband Stan founded Energy Conversion Devices in 1960, better known as Ovonics today. They were pioneers in solar cell development and alternative fuel technology. If you have a device with a nickel-metal-hydride battery, you can thank the Ovshinskys.
The two were most recently featured in the movie "Who Killed the Electric Car?"
Here is a link the announcement from Ovonics and praise from Ovonics' CEO, Robert Stempel, the former boss at GM.
