TechNews180 spotlights “Innovation Crossroads” participant EarthEn

"In the quest for sustainable energy solutions, EarthEn stands out with its approach to energy storage," writes Neil Hodgson-Coyle.

TechNews180 recently published an interview with Manas Pathak, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of EarthEn. The start-up is a member of the 2023 cohort of the “Innovation Crossroads” program operated by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

“In the quest for sustainable energy solutions, EarthEn stands out with its approach to energy storage,” writes Neil Hodgson-Coyle, adding that the team has “has developed a novel thermo-mechanical energy storage system that leverages carbon dioxide (CO2) in a closed-loop cycle. This innovative technology promises to store energy efficiently and at a low cost, with the flexibility to scale from four to 100+ hours of storage.”

He concludes the article with this observation: “EarthEn’s cutting-edge energy storage solutions represent a significant step forward in the transition to a more sustainable and resilient energy grid. By utilizing CO2 in a closed loop, EarthEn addresses both energy storage needs and environmental concerns. As Manas Pathak envisions, EarthEn’s technology will not only support the growing demand for renewable energy but also pave the way for a decentralized and electrified future, harnessing every opportunity for sustainable power generation.”
