Power & Energy
   Innovation Business Directory

  Innovation Business Directory—January 2011
Power & Energy
With gas prices soaring, interest in alternative fuels has heightened, spurring
the race forward for the next generation of energy sources. Idaho is front and
center in this race.

Idaho is shaping up to be a testing ground for numerous renewable energy
technologies. This is not surprising, considering the state boasts a variety of
elements that make it a viable laboratory for the next step in power
generation. Two of those elements include the Idaho National Laboratory being
designated as the lead nuclear energy research facility and Idaho having a state
ranking of 13th in the nation for its wind power development potential, with
specific areas considered highly suitable for wind development projects.

Additionally, there is a proliferation of companies and university research
institutions focused on additional areas such as fuel cells, low-power batteries,
electric car technologies, kinetic energy capture, biomass, and new alternative

Inside the Directory
Inside the Power & Energy directory are companies, agencies, and research
institutions which are engaged in the research, refinement, conservation, or
production of energy resources. This research includes electric power
production (including renewable resource research in hydro, geothermal, solar,
wind, and nuclear technologies), fuel research, biomass technologies, energy
monitoring, and conservation technologies.

                         Examples of Power & Energy:
      Traditional power producers
      Bio-energy production
      Hydrogen production
      Advanced battery systems

work with any software or system and not compromise the operator’s existing

Terminal) was born, a hands-free way to take probe readings tracking
periodontal disease.

Agricultural & Biological Sciences
    Innovation Business Directory

   Innovation Business Directory— January 2011
Agricultural & Biological Sciences
One of Idaho’s oldest industries is merging with one of its newest to create a
burgeoning new sector – the biosciences. This growing area in the state – a
blend of agriculture and technology with a dose of healthcare – includes many
sectors such as cancer research, new seed crop development, and electronics
used in implantable medical devices.

Idaho’s strengths – which bridge across research institutions and industry – were
identified as the following: infectious diseases in plants, animals, and humans;
bio-products and bio-fuels; and environmental remediation/sustainability.

In 2004, the Idaho Biosciences Association was formed. Later that year, the
IDeA Network for Biomedical Excellence was established. The state
subsequently named the biosciences as one of its core competencies and called
for a stronger focus in education, research, and economic development in this

In 2005, Idaho State University announced the establishment of a Biomedical
Research Institute, and the state held its first-ever Idaho Pavilion at the
worldwide Biotechnology Industry Organization convention.

In 2007, the Idaho State Department of Agriculture Marketing Development
Division won the Award of Agricultural Marketing Excellence. Only one U.S.
state or Canadian province is chosen each year. IDSA director Celia Gould
stated, “Idaho is setting the standard for other states.”

Inside the Directory
Inside the following Agriculture & Biological Sciences directory are companies,
agencies, and research institutions dealing with the research,
commercialization, and development of science and technologies. These
groups are involved in agriculture, genetics, micro-biology, ecology,
healthcare, food production, etc.

    Genetics of plants, seeds, and animals
    Infectious disease in plants, animals, and humans
    Management of ecological systems (water and natural environments)
    Food safety technology
    Biomaterials: new materials and organisms derived from Idaho’s natural

The company Clark Seed began in 1984 under Wade E. Clark. He and Paul

powered everything with a diesel generator. It was an instant success. Instead
of farmers hauling their seed into the elevator to be cleaned, Wade Clark
traveled to the farms and cleaned their seed there. Several years later he
branched out building another elevator in Soda Springs where he later added a
roller mill. The company’s current efforts include pearling barley and operating
an oat plant which he designed and constructed. Jeremiah purchased the seed
cleaning from Alexander Company in 2001. Jeremiah renamed the business
Clark Seed. They have expanded into the table grade cereal grain market and
uses Idaho’s excellent wheat, barley, and oats.

     Kidcheck
KidCheck began in 2003 when its team of founders decided they wanted to
create a company that was passionate about providing child care professionals
and other organizations the tools that major corporations use to help them
work more efficiently and effectively. Too often, these tools were either over-
priced or over-blown for a smaller organization. With that in mind, KidCheck
sought to create products that were built for the smaller organization, but
would be effective for the larger ones instead of vice versa.
