Energy Industry Expert joins Freedom Motors as a Strategic Advisor

Hello Everyone,

As you know we have been working hard to secure subject matter expert advisors to help take us to the next level, and previously have announced the participation of Mike Smith and Sudheer Kuppam to that end.

This week I would like to welcome our third Strategic Advisor, Adriann “Andee” McCoy to our team.

Andee has worked in the electric Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Industry for a number of years, recently working for Smart Wires, a transmission technology company based in Silicon Valley, as Vice President of the Western Region leading all technical, sales, and customer relationship efforts across Western North America. Prior to that, she worked at Burns & McDonnell where she started her tenure as a substation design engineer and project manager and ultimately became the T&D market strategy manager, leading strategic pursuits and helping expand to the European market.

Most recently Andee has started her own utility consulting practice, working hand-in-hand with electric utilities and stakeholders to meet their organizational goals and address the rapidly-evolving challenges facing the energy industry.

Andee is helping Freedom Motors with our efforts to engage California utilities & other energy industry companies on projects in micro-grids, compressed air storage, and renewable energy. You can learn more about Andee McCoy’s experience through her LinkedIn site at

Please join me in welcoming Andee to our team!

Best Regards – Dave

  1. Andee,

      1. Jim,

        Good morning. Thank you for your comment. As you noticed FM has attracted great advisors in the past couple months. In my mind the most important recipe for success is a good team and money. We are diligently working on both. The first step was to build a good team, which we have concluded. While working on building the team we also embarked in fundraising. As you know for any growth we need a good strategy and money.

        I believe that in coming months, this team will show some results thus fueling our growth. We are blessed to have access to great technology. What we need now is to ensure that we have good manufacturing capability to meet the demand that will result from the new FM team’s hard work.

        We will continue to keep everyone in the loop as we move forward. I certainly cannot speak for the past but I definitely see a successful future for FM.

        Thank you for your support

    1. Gene,

      Please allow me to fill in for Andee while she returns from her family vacation. I have worked with Andee in the energy industry for a while. She has in depth knowledge of US electricity grid and it requirements. As we all know the Electricity industry is going through a lot of changes and significantly in our state of California. The penetration of renewables has opened us an opportunity to use our engines to support the grid, in a very unique way.

      With her knowledge, expertise and industry relations we envision that we will have our fare share of success in the coming years.

      The growth of renewables and alternative fuel sources in the electricity industry around the World is projected to grow to US $1 Trillion in the next 10 years. This is our window of opportunity to focus, compete and sustain.

    2. Hi Gene,

      Thanks for the warm welcome! As Subhash mentioned, I’ve been working in the California electric industry for a number of years, working with utilities to develop and build their infrastructure. In that time I’ve built a strong understanding of the regulatory and planning processes that utilities go thru in order to identify where their grid needs exist and to evaluate the various technical solutions. Traditionally those solutions consisted of building or rebuilding power lines but with new technologies becoming available, like the Rotapower, utilities have more options than ever before. Understanding the scorecard for how those decisions get made has been a major focus of mine and will be critical for the FM team as they move into this market.

      Looking forward to serving as an advisor to this terrific team!


  2. Hello Andee
    I hope your expertise helps Moller gain momentum in its goals going forward. I personally would like to see a flying car but I guess that is on the back burner. Good luck🍀
