Sorin along with his team had come across a number of barriers while developing this system. He says,”We faced numerous challenges. We tried three different approaches at solving the unreliable grid problem before we finally settled on the thermal battery concept. One of our approaches used solar power, but we discovered that solar power was too expensive and too difficult to install and our customers could not justify it. I would say that the final product is a result of many failures. But we learned valuable lessons from each failure and this is how we arrived at the final system configuration.”
