Driven by a vision of the affordable, reliable, net-zero carbon grid of the future
Mainspring was founded in 2010 by three Stanford engineers seeking a new approach to generating clean, resilient, affordable electricity. Their research into high-efficiency methods of converting fuel to electricity led to the founding of the company and the development and prototype of their first linear generator. They also built a culture of collaboration and innovation.
Today Mainspring brings together a diverse, talented team of individuals who share the vision to address the growing threat of climate change and the need for affordable electricity for all. Our executive team brings deep expertise from leading clean energy companies and is backed by top-tier venture, strategic, and financial investors.
Building a new category of world-class power generation requires the optimism of ambition and creativity, balanced with practicality to solve problems efficiently. The challenges that arise are opportunities for growth.
Excellence Without Ego
We bring expertise and commitment to creating the best customer experience, from sales to deployment and service, just as we apply deep technical rigor to building and delivering world-class products. We strive for excellence and behave as leaders with the humility to acknowledge our challenges, both collectively and as individual contributors.
The integration and cross-disciplinary nature of Mainspring’s business requires intentionally seeking out others who bring different skills, perspectives, and priorities. Our culture of inclusion and respect extends beyond our team to interactions with our partners and customers.
