Challenges in Flight:
Mobility accounts for 14% of global GHG emissions and relies more on fossil fuels than any other sector.
Accelerating purpose built urban infrastructure for electric vehicles and scaled adoption of sustainable fuels for heavy-duty transport and aviation.
Our founders are actively partnering with industry to pilot and scale frontier tech solutions at the intersection of electrification, logistics, sustainable fuels and urban infrastructure.
open mobility challenges
Providing safe, affordable and dependable electric micromobility charging
Activating low-altitude airspace for people & goods
Expanding multi-modal logistics to drive supply chain resilience
Scaling net-zero fuels and electrification in key corridors
It is a global imperative to transition our energy systems—accounting for 35% of global GHG emissions, the most of any sector—toward renewable, clean and abundant sources, while reducing our demand for power.
We empower the entrepreneurs, engineers, and scientists obsessed with commercializing the technologies required to decarbonize the economy and create accessible, low-cost energy.
Together, in collaboration with industry and government, our public-private partnerships lay the groundwork for deploying the frontier tech required for this multi-decade transition of our energy systems.
open energy challenges
Integrating safer energy storage for dense, urban environments
Decarbonizing hard to abate industries with renewable power-to-x applications
The industrial processes required to create materials account for 21% of global GHG emissions.
Reimagining the utility of waste streams and advancing the promise of a growing bio-economy. The next Industrial Revolution is all about nature-based, closed-loop alternatives to petro-chemicals that actively decarbonize our planet.
Our entrepreneurs are building these companies, and our industrial partners are motivated to participate and drive the new economy around sustainable materials.
