EarthEn secures U.S. DOE support for its supercritical CO2-based energy storage technology

US-based energy storage startup, EarthEn recently announced that it has secured first-of-its-kind funding by the Office of Electricity, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) along with the support of U.S. National Lab for developing its supercritical carbon-dioxide (sCO2) based energy storage technology.

The Phoenix-based startup which utilizes carbon dioxide-based technology to provide energy storage solutions for integrating more renewable energy on the grid has won the award as part of the Innovation Crossroads fellowship program. Innovation Crossroads is a two-year fellowship program which kicks off this month at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in partnership with the DOE and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), have developed the program to support entrepreneurs in creating the next-generation of U.S. clean energy companies.

"We are honored to be selected to participate in the prestigious Innovation Crossroads. The funding and support will propel our efforts to further develop and commercialize our sCO2-based energy storage technology" said Manas Pathak, CEO of EarthEn.

The infusion of latest funding and support is expected to help EarthEn to significantly advance the commercialization of its long-duration energy storage solution.

EarthEn will receive DOE funding and support for collaborative research and development of EarthEn's technology at ORNL's Knoxville, TN campus.
