English to Portuguese: This Amazon-backed startup is trying to save the planet, one motor at a time General field: Bus/Financial
Source text - English Turntide Technologies is on a mission to save the planet, one motor at a time.
The startup, armed with an influx of cash from Amazon, Bill Gates and actor Robert Downey Jr., wants to replace the antiquated and energy-wasting motors used to power fridges, HVAC systems and cars with a smart motor that uses a fraction of the energy.
"Our funding was extremely challenging for all of our history, until very recently. It was like crossing the desert. We managed to get through it, while others failed." TURNTIDE CEO RYAN MORRIS.
Turntide's machine learning-powered motors are already being used to reduce the carbon footprints -— and energy bills — of buildings owned by BMW, commercial real estate firm JLL and Five Guys, as well as in cooling systems on dairy farms.
The ambitious, perhaps unrealistic, goal is to upgrade all of the motors in the world, a herculean task that the company says would wipe out a quarter of the planet's carbon emissions.
"We're trying to build a huge, world-changing and impactful company that will be up there with the greats," Turntide CEO Ryan Morris told CNN Business.
Some of those greats are throwing their weight behind Turntide: The startup recently announced an $80 million investment led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures, the Gates-led fund aiming to help the planet reach zero carbon emissions through innovation.
But unlike some other Gates-backed startups that are attempting to shrink the supply of carbon-emitting fossil fuels, Turntide is squarely focused on the demand side of the equation.
"We see great potential for their technology and believe that, once widely adopted, it will play a critical role in reducing electricity consumption globally," Carmichael Roberts, business lead on Breakthrough's investment committee, told CNN Business in an email.
Translation - Portuguese A Turntide Technologies está em uma missão para salvar o planeta, um motor de cada vez.
A startup, armada com um influxo de dinheiro da Amazon, Bill Gates e o ator Robert Downey Jr. quer substituir os motores antiquados e desperdiçadores de energia usados para alimentar geladeiras, sistemas HVAC e carros por um motor inteligente que usa uma fração da energia.
"Nosso financiamento foi extremamente desafiador por toda a nossa história, até muito recentemente. Foi como cruzar o deserto. Conseguimos passar por isso, enquanto outros falharam." Diretor executivo da Turntide, Ryan Morris.
Os motores com machine learning (aprendizado de máquina) da Turntide já estão sendo usados para reduzir as pegadas de carbono - e contas de energia - de edifícios de propriedade da BMW, da imobiliária comercial JLL e Five Guys, bem como em sistemas de resfriamento em fazendas de laticínios.
O objetivo ambicioso, talvez surreal, é atualizar todos os motores do mundo, uma tarefa hercúlea que, segundo a empresa, eliminaria um quarto das emissões de carbono do planeta.
"Estamos tentando construir uma empresa enorme, capaz de mudar o mundo e estar à altura dos gigantes", disse o Diretor executivo da Turntide, Ryan Morris, à CNN Business.
Alguns desses gigantes estão jogando seu peso na Turntide: A startup anunciou recentemente um investimento de $80 milhões, liderado pela Breakthrough Energy Ventures, o fundo em que Gates está no comando, e que visa ajudar o planeta a atingir zero emissões de carbono por meio da inovação.
Mas ao contrário de algumas outras startups apoiadas por Gates que estão tentando reduzir o fornecimento de combustíveis fósseis que emitem carbono, a Turntide está diretamente focada no lado da demanda da equação.
"Vemos um grande potencial para sua tecnologia e acreditamos que, uma vez amplamente adotada, ela terá um papel crítico na redução do consumo de eletricidade globalmente", disse Carmichael Roberts, líder de negócios do comitê de investimentos da Breakthrough, à CNN Business por e-mail.

Seasoned in-house translator

Hello there! I have always been tempted to learn English mainly because of the USA's heavy cultural influence in Brazil. When I was 15 years old, I lived in Saint Louis - Missouri, where I completed the senior year in high school. Back in Brazil and with the American diploma, I went to business school, and later I got an MBA in Foreign Trade and International Finance Management.
In every place I worked, English translation was required (International Trade Agent, Software House Manager). Considering the effect that the CORONAVÍRUS had on Brazilian society, with lockdowns, I intend to insert myself more and more into the freelance translation market.
Looking forward to doing business with you.
