ENYA invested in ThermoAura in August 2013. ThermoAura has developed a unique manufacturing process to make high performing thermoelectric material using microwave technology. This approach represents the first major change in how these materials are made in over 30 years. The new material performs 25% better at 50% of the manufacturing cost. The company is presently building a manufacturing facility in the Capital Region. In addition to ENYA funding the company has received grants from NYSERDA and the National Science Foundation to further the development of its technology.
