Case study: Thundergrid

Thundergrid, a Landis+Gyr Company, accessed Green Finance Accelerator pipeline financing to grow its business.

Thundergrid supplies EV charging stations and manages charging networks for large customers. In late 2022, NZGIF provided a $1m working capital facility via the Green Finance Accelerator to support Thundergrid to deliver on a scaling pipeline of committed customers. NZGIF's funding enabled Thundergrid to accelerate revenue growth without requiring additional equity. Thundergrid was purchased by Landis+Gyr (LAND.SW) October 2023.
