In this episode of Flanigan’s Eco-Logic, Ted speaks with Scott Case, Co-Founder and CEO of Recurrent EV / Auto. Recurrent is working to define the health of electric vehicle batteries by collaborating with thousands of EV drivers and introducing advanced machine learning.

Ted and Scott discuss his background, born in New Jersey, based in the Pacific Northwest since high school, lived in Seattle for 17 years, and moved to Tacoma, Washington during the pandemic, where he currently lives. 

Scott has a B.A. from Williams College and MBA from MIT’s Sloan School of Management. Prior to founding Recurrent, Scott spent 10 years as Chief Operating Officer of EnergySavvy, an energy efficiency software company where he played a critical role in growing the company to 75 employees and $10M in annual revenue prior to being acquired in 2019. 

He shares with Ted that he came into auto through the electrical grid and his realization that the new technology of EVs meant new challenges and lots of unanswered questions, as used EV car buyers don't yet have the tools to shop for them. Unlike vehicles with combustion engines, where the odometer read is a key measure of the car's life, mileage is not the key indicator of an EV's value. For EVs, it’s all about battery health and understanding the available range in different conditions. So, he and his team are supporting the secondary market for EVs by helping people evaluate and buy used electric cars with confidence.

By providing more transparency and confidence in pre-owned electric car transactions, Reccurent's mission is to accelerate the overall adoption of electric vehicles. This is key to reducing the 20% of U.S. carbon emissions that are currently produced by light-duty combustion engine vehicles.
