Dr. Christian Thiel, Energy Nest – 70

I first spoke to Christian about joining on the podcast over two years ago, we planned to do so at the Hyperion office in Munich, time and pandemics conspired against us. But with so much happening in the space, and so much need for long duration energy storage, I didn’t want to wait any longer, seeing the progress they are making as a company, so I’m delighted to return to one of a few favourite topics, long duration energy storage. I hope you enjoy the episode. About Dr. Christian Thiel:  Christian has been CEO of EnergyNest since 2014.
