Getting climate, energy & environment news right.

This startup’s energy storage tech is ​‘essentially a giant toaster’

Julian Spector of Canary Media writes on a new energy storage startup.

The C3 Take
  • Antora is a Bay Area-startup that is taking a novel approach to energy storage.
  • While many companies are using pumped storage or new batteries, Antora is using giant blocks that are the size of shipping containers.
  • The company heats these blocks until they begin to glow. A beam of this light can than be harnessed to produce electricity on demand.
  • Private sector innovation is unlocking a clean energy future.

“Antora already has prototypes that can store up to 500 kilowatt-hours of electricity. The Series A financing will fund the creation and installation of a 5-megawatt-hour storage prototype, to be deployed at a customer site in Fresno, California.”
