Chris Ariante

I'm Nira's CEO and lead business development. Prior to Nira, I worked with Andrew at another grid startup and built a $150M pipeline of projects in <2 years. In that role, we worked as consultants for most of the major utilities and renewable developers in the US. We are leveraging our industry expertise / network to build Nira and I couldn't be more excited about the impact we are having on accelerating renewable growth!

Andy Chen

I'm the cofounder and CTO at Nira Energy. I recently made the switch to working on climate tech and am loving it. I definitely got lucky meeting my cofounders Chris and Andrew, who are veterans in the renewable energy space with 10+ years of experience. I worked at Palantir as a software engineer for 2 years and a PM for one year. Before that I graduated from Brown with a BS in Computer Science. I currently live a 3 minute walk from my local surf beach in the Rockways, NY.

Andrew Martin

I head up our power system electrical engineering team (e.g. the "Transmission" team). I've been working with utilities for the past ~10 years to ensure the power grid will remain reliable for decades to come. At Nira, our team is codifying the electrical engineering standards that are applied to our Renewable Developer customers' projects.
