Investors in the latest funding included sustainable real assets investor Vision Ridge Partners as well as existing investors Keyframe Capital and Cyrus Capital. According to Crunchbase data, this round is the largest raised by a VC backed start-up in the EV segment this year.

TeraWatt, which launched out of stealth in May 2021, intends to use the funds for further hiring as also expand its buildout of charging centres.

“The Keyframe team began building TeraWatt in 2018, recognizing then that the demand for fleet charging hubs would rapidly outpace supply, which is now a commonly understood challenge,” said Benjamin Birnbaum, partner at Keyframe Capital and one of TeraWatt’s founders, alongside John Rapaport and Ethan Goldsmith. “Global investments in electric vehicle charging are expected to approach $1 trillion by 2040,” he added.

“The future of electrified transport is at a critical inflection point, whereby solutions for large-scale EV charging infrastructure must be established to meet the increasing demand for electrification of all fleets,” said Paul Luce, managing director at Vision Ridge Partners.
