Weighted Lie algebroids were recently introduced as Lie algebroids equipped with an additional compatible non-negative grading, and represent a wide generalisation of the notion of a VB-algebroid. There is a close relation between two term representations up to homotopy of Lie algebroids and VB-algebroids. In this paper we show how this relation generalises to weighted Lie algebroids and in doing so we uncover new and natural examples of higher term representations up to homotopy of Lie algebroids. Moreover, we show how the van Est theorem generalises to weighted objects.
Keywords: Graded manifolds, Lie algebroids, Lie groupoids, representations up to homotopy.
