About the company
SocketHacker is a startup, working for greener transportation, cheaper electricity, and a healthier power grid. Currently, a small team of international, excited and highly motivated people, looking for like-minded individuals. If everything goes as planned, we are launching in January 2020 and would really like to see you join this journey!
What we do
The load on the electric grid has been increasing with more electric vehicles, potentially causing blackouts within a few years if not handled properly, and currently all solutions resort to dirty power sources. We are a KTH Innovation startup using electric vehicles as a solution instead of letting them become a problem, aiming to make transportation more environmentally friendly. That is done by using electric vehicles charging patterns to balance the power grid and help the charging station owners save up on electricity costs. For more information, visit sockethacker.com.
We are still at an early stage, currently working on the development of our technology to be able to start testing at the end of Summer. So far we got selected into the KTH Innovation Pre-incubator program and have several companies interested to work with us when the prototype is ready. Just recently, we won a Nordic China Hi-Tech week, allowing us to explore China as a potential market when we visit it in November.
