EERE Success Story—Terrafore: Thermal Storage gets a "Hole in One"

Sometimes great things come in small packages. In the case of developing ways to more efficiently store solar energy, they come in tiny capsules. With support from a SunShot Baseload Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Generation award, Terrafore has pioneered a new method to improve storage efficiency and reduce the cost of energy delivered from CSP plants.

"SunShot has played a major role in this achievement," says Terrafore CTO Anoop Mathur. "We're a very small company and without SunShot, this could not have been done."
