Shaping the Future

A world where energy transmission is not constrained by wires.

Our Story

Dreaming the impossible

Emrod’s founders dreamed of utilising innovation and transformative technology as a force for good. Delivering the most positive impact to the widest number of people.

We wanted to transform the way people think about powering communities, businesses and machines so they can grow and thrive while supporting the uptake of sustainable energy sources – A world where energy transmission is not constrained by wires!

It was an audacious dream, one that meant searching for ground-breaking technology and an innovative approach. In 2019 Greg Kushnir, Emrod’s founder, assembled a world-class team of scientists, engineers, and visionaries to translate the dream into technology, prototypes and eventually products. Emrod was born!

Taking on some of the world's biggest energy and environmental challenges

  • Improving network resilience and preventing power outages
    Replacing vulnerable physical wires improves the resilience of networks against weather effects, electricity pirating, and reduces maintenance down time. 
  • Making renewable energy more accessible and efficient
    Emrod enables sourcing sustainable energy from areas that have previously been too hard or expensive to access such as offshore wind farms, remote solar farms, hydro and geothermal sources.
  • Empowering communities by offering those most in need access to sustainable energy

    By significantly reducing infrastructure costs, Emrod’s technology can support areas in Africa, the Pacific Islands and other remote communities to access cheap, sustainable energy to power schools, hospitals, and economies.
