Addressing the climate crisis requires the ambition to completely reimagine and rebuild our energy and mobility systems. At Powerhouse, we challenge ourselves—and our partners—to act boldly, innovate quickly, and decarbonize equitably.
No company—no matter how big—has the ability to decarbonize by itself. Through our partnerships, we’re enabling collaboration between the biggest corporations and the most effective startups.
The structures of the past hundred years are insufficient to address the climate crisis. Rapid decarbonization requires a radical expansion of new technologies to deploy our best solutions at scale.
Every startup, partner, and organization we work with is driven by people. Our work is rooted in strong and personal relationships with the people changing the way we power our world.
