In this episode 158 of "Failing to Success", Jeff Draper, founder of Storelectric, shares his journey from physics and accounting to pioneering green energy technology. Jeff's path took an unexpected turn as he jogged along a tidal river, leading him to envision untapped energy potential in salt caverns. These caverns, initially used by the fossil fuel industry for methane storage, sparked the idea of repurposing them into enormous batteries for renewable energy storage. Jeff's company, Storelectric, shifted from compressed air to hydrogen storage due to hydrogen's higher energy capacity. They aim to purchase and transform salt caverns into green hydrogen storage units, capable of backing up countries' energy needs. Collaborations with major companies and investors highlight the growing significance of green hydrogen in securing energy supply and sustainability.
