Skibo Energy Engineering Team
For the last ten years, the founders of Skibo Energy have been exploring energy storage solutions finally deciding to focus on engineering sensible thermal energy storage (TES) that will lower the cost of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) solutions. The Skibo Energy TES technology can also be tightly integrated with industrial processes to enable the use of the heat of the sun along with the reuse of any available waste heat. In May 2020, Skibo Energy was self-funded to begin the R&D and development of the TES initiative. Short descriptions of each team member are listed below.
