Industrial R&D engineering internship round

ABOUT US

Teraloop was founded to address the grand challenge of finding the “holy grail” of energy industry, and to combat the mythical creature called “Blackout”. We believe we have the key to create the world’s first 10-100MWh kinetic energy storage solution. A physical, non toxic and secure way to store energy which will store and distribute energy harvested from the Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) sources.

The planet needs to solve the grand challenge of filling the gap of energy production versus the growing demand for energy. In today’s world they don’t meet.

Today Teraloop and its academic, research center, engineering and energy industry partners are solving one of the greatest challenge of our plant. How to save the planet, how to reduce and cut down the use of carbon based energy fuels, how to close all coal power plants in the world, and how to make the world a safe place for our children and their children. The planet Earth needs you!
