Origin Story

Shift Thermal was founded in 2017 by two engineering PhDs from Cornell University to help solve for the missing link in our sustainable energy future: energy storage. The company moved to Tennessee to join the inaugural cohort of Innovation Crossroads, a DOE-funded entrepreneurship program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).

Over the following years and with the support of ORNL, NSF, and DOE, our team of talented scientists, engineers, and technicians developed a system for heating and cooling that is sustainable, affordable, and adaptable to our changing world. We are now partnering with multinational HVAC firms to realize our founding vision.
