Josh Vetter joined Steffes as an Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) product engineer in the Fall of 2017. In this role, he works in the ETS lab to provide support for existing products and new product development.
“I joined Steffes because I wanted a challenging, more involved career,” said Josh. “Something that would challenge me daily and present new opportunities to grow.”
During his time at Steffes, Josh has made a big impact in the ETS division.
He worked on a national research project to develop a grid-interactive water heater with electric resistance integrated with a heat pump capable of following a grid load profile. The goal of this project was to advance heat pump water heater technology.
He also helped build two Comfort Plus Hydronic Furnaces designed for a Polish company. This project involved converting two furnaces to run on a European-style electric grid system and was the first of its kind for Steffes.
“Energy storage is my passion and a really believe in our ETS products,” said Josh.
Josh said his favorite part of the job is getting to work with his hands and try new things.
In his free time, he builds circuit boards and preforms research on batteries for electric cars.
