What’s behind EEStor?

The Austin-American Statesman has a fairly lengthy article today about EEStor Inc. and its potentially ground-breaking energy storage system. The story doesn’t provide new information from a technical perspective, but what it does do is provide a little more background information on EEStor co-founders Richard Weir and Carl Nelson. The author of the piece also does a good job tracking down people who have worked or associated with both men or have been briefed on EEStor’s technology. While doubts remain about whether EEStor can deliver on its promises, there appears to be general agreement that Weir and Nelson are legit and their technology claims, while challenging to achieve, have a solid basis in science.
