What defines us
We believe as individuals and a team, that working every day to make the grid more renewable is how we can have the greatest impact for the energy transition.
We believe that building technology is the best lever to enhancing the competitiveness of renewable energy and accelerating its widespread adoption.
We believe that as a multicultural and international team we are in the best position to tackle this global challenge.
As fellow grad students at UC Berkeley, Cyril Colin and Karim El Alami witnessed the transformation of California’s energy grid towards cleaner but intermittent energy. The imperative of reducing CO2 emissions and the increasing profitability of renewable energy triggered 3 major shifts:
Anticipating that what happened in California would be a benchmark of future of grids in the rest of the world, they founded Elum to build solutions to facilitate the interconnection of the different pieces of this new renewable ecosystem: a controller & a platform, able to evolve alongside the complexification of the energy systems in size, number of assets and technologies (storage, EV, hydrogen).
Our mission is to facilitate the integration of renewables on any grid worldwide.
