Business Operations & Strategy

About Us 

Our mission is to drive rapid decarbonization in global transport and power sectors by intelligently connecting electric vehicles to the grid. Our software uses predictive analytics and systems optimization to make it cheaper and safer for utilities to support the growth of electric vehicles, increase renewable energy adoption, and save customers money. Weave Grid is backed by premier energy-focused venture investors. Join us to tackle one of the biggest challenges and business opportunities of this century. 

 

Industry Context

We are living through historic changes in the ways people use transportation - a sector that is now one of the largest and fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions. 

 

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are growing at over 60% a year, with vehicle manufacturers spending billions to get ready for an electric future. Boston Consulting Group estimates EVs will account for over half of all vehicle sales by 2030. Electric utilities see massive opportunities in this transformation, as the rise of EVs could drive more growth in energy demand over the next 10 years than any decade since the 1950s

 

Larger EV fleets can also help support renewable energy sources on the grid. But to accommodate growth in EVs, utilities will need to make substantial investments in infrastructure and technology. Weave Grid's software helps meet the challenge of our transition to electrified transport.
