About Us

All you need to know about the team behind Luma

Luma is an early stage Startup that wants to turn Electric Vehicles into the cleanest form of energy storage. By leveraging existing assets, we can reduce resource consumption, generate added value for multiple stakeholders, and help fight climate change.
Our mission is simple:

We want to democratize the Energy Transition and empower individuals in the fight against Climate Change.

We are dreamers.

We believe in a better tomorrow - a tomorrow where our societies can produce electricity in a sustainable manner, where the line between producers and consumers of energy no longer exists, and where everyone - no matter who or where you are - can contribute towards our goal of clean, resilient, and renewable power.

At Luma we are committed to adopting the new, to leveraging the innovative, and we're not afraid to take risks. For too long, we have let special interests disrupt and dissuade real climate action. The old way of doing things can no longer be acceptable - and that's why we've built Luma.

However, climate leadership is not just about having an individual impact; it is about empowering normal, like-minded individuals like us to come together and effect real, meaningful, and lasting change. That's what the democratization of the Energy Transition really means. So when synchronize EVs to help stabilize the utility grid, reducing the need for compensating fossil fuels and allowing for the introduction of even more renewable power, that's not just a good business model: it's a statement to the core belief of this company:

By coming together, we can achieve great things.
