This week sees the relaunch of our Energy Frontrunners series, in which we present the year’s best energy and climate tech solutions and the people behind them. Join us as we take a closer look at the 15 finalists and five category winners of the SET Award 2023!

In our first interview, we sat down with the winner of the SET Award 2023, Energy Dome. After taking home the prize for the best innovation in the Clean Energy & Storage category, Spadacini tells us the story of how Energy Dome’s solution became a working reality, plus where the company is going next. Energy Dome is unlocking utility-scale, long-duration energy storage using materials that are already available! Energy Dome’s CO₂ battery enables dispatchable renewable electricity to make the net zero energy transition possible. The battery is based on a thermodynamic process that uses CO₂ to store electricity cost-effectively.
