Stan Ovshinsky

This guy has been inventing and perfecting green technology for decades. With over 300 patents, "If you’ve used a rechargeable battery, driven a hybrid vehicle* or put solar panels on your roof, you’re benefiting from the work of Stanford Ovshinsky." (quote from the Mother Earth News profile)

Read the full profile in Mother Earth News or the older one from MIT's Inventor of the Week Archive. And there's always the wikipedia article. Or check out his company, ECD Ovonics. Buy stock in it, even.

*Or a fully electric one, if you've been so lucky.
