During his PhD in Mechanical Engineering Lukas’ research focus was on the development of novel energy storage technologies for concentrated solar power plants, solar fuel production, and electricity storage. He has authored several scientific publications and patents. In 2018, Lukas joined Synhelion as Head Thermal Systems.
Bringing solar fuels from garage experiments to the world with Lukas
Using concentrated solar power, carbon dioxide and water, Synhelion produces solar fuels for cars and jets. Lukas Geissbuehler, head of thermal systems, has been part of the company since the very beginning. He shares the story how he initially tested the thermal storage in a garage and what the transition from university to the start-up has been like. Listen in to find out why he sometimes misses research and how Synhelion aims to also decarbonize the cement industry.
