Better Place:  Innovative Israeli

Electric Car Initiative



Michael Granoff

Head of Oil Independence Policies

Better Place 

Imagine living free from oil. Picture zero-emission electric cars running on a clean energy grid. Governments, auto makers, and energy companies are now working with Better Place ( to make this vision for the future a reality today. In 2005, the President and Founder of the World Economic Forum posed the following question to a gathering of young, global leaders, “How do you make the world a better place by 2020?” This inspired a young Israeli to imagine a world without oil. He drew from his entrepreneurial experience and insights from world leaders to formulate a business plan that applies mobile phone industry economics and renewable energy to transportation.

Founded in October 2007 on $200 million of venture capital, Better Place announced, in its first six months, cooperative agreements with Israel and Denmark to transform their transportation infrastructure from oil-based to renewable energy and significantly reduce harmful emissions. Subsequently, the company’s plan has been embraced by California, Hawaii, Canada, and Australia.

Presenting this innovative program is Michael Granoff, Head of Oil Independence Policies for Better Place. Granoff is the founder of Maniv Energy Capital which became the first investor in Better Place, and was instrumental in the founding of Israel Cleantech Ventures, the first venture fund in Israel with an exclusive focus on the cleantech space.
