EtaGen, a mission-driven startup advancing global access to low-carbon and dispatchable energy, had developed a truly new category of power generation. The company needed a new name that would be globally accessible and carry the innovative story of their linear generator — delivering onsite, fuel-flexible power at lower cost and lower carbon than the electric grid.
Mainspring, a real word, represents the principal driving force in motivating or maintaining a movement. Without being too literal, the name actively supports a company at the heart of the energy revolution. Furthermore, it links to the linear generator’s function and positively reflects the company’s pride in bringing to market a physical product with world-class engineering and craftsmanship.
