Energy Storage and the Grid
President & CEO, Hammond Group, Inc.
Terry began his career as a development engineer on the Space Shuttle Main Engine and spent the next 30 years managing complex aerospace systems. His organization developed propulsion and power systems for space exploration and leveraged these core competencies into sustainable energy systems for terrestrial applications. One of these technologies was a Concentrated Solar Power system that utilized Molten Salt as an Energy Storage medium which Terry spun-out in 2007 as the founding CEO. Mr. Murphy continued his interest in Energy Storage as the CEO of the Hammond Group beginning in 2013 and just completed a new production line on a chemical additive which allows the battery manufacturers to simultaneously increase their performance, save significant energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
