Enerpoly raises funding to address global battery needs

Enerpoly raises €410K. Now the startup aims to make battery storage affordable enough to be in every home.

  • Enerpoly closed a €410K pre-seed round.
  • These funds further technology and manufacturing developments of zinc-ion batteries.
  • Investors include angels from the manufacturing industry, and Swedish accelerator, Sting Holding.

Stockholm, Sweden, 14 September 2021 – Enerpoly has closed its pre-seed funding round of €410K. Investors are angels with experience building and managing global manufacturing companies and successfully doing business within the battery industry. Sting Holding, a Swedish accelerator, also participated in round.

This pre-seed funding will propel Enerpoly to the next stage of development and prepare the technology for demonstration in pilots for residential-scale batteries and other behind-the-meter applications such as electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The company now has €2.5 million in financing to tackle the lack of sustainable and affordable battery energy storage solutions.

“We are a proud backer of Enerpoly since 2019 and are very excited about their innovative solution for stationary energy storage. Their battery technology will contribute to solving the climate challenge and we feel confident that the great team behind Enerpoly will succeed in this important mission.” – Pär Hedberg, Founder and CEO of Sting.

Enerpoly is pioneering the rechargeable zinc-ion battery technology made of abundant and inexpensive materials. Renewable power generation is expected to dominate the electricity grid by 2030, and stationary battery storage is needed to ensure the reliability of intermittent solar and wind power. As the high cost of energy storage is the primary barrier to clean energy, Enerpoly’s affordable batteries can drive a transition to the electric grid of the future — one powered by resilient and renewable energy sources.

“Sustainability-focused homeowners have been installing solar panels on their rooftops for decades, but the majority of the energy they produce is sold back to the utility and not used for their home’s energy needs. To solve this problem, many of these savvy homeowners have evaluated installing batteries to store the energy for when it’s needed, but in most cases, the batteries are far too expensive to justify the investment. Enerpoly’s groundbreakingly cost-effective technology answers this need. Our batteries can also support the local economy – everything in the technology can be sourced and manufactured in Sweden.” – Eloisa de Castro, CEO of Enerpoly.

With the world focused on reducing emissions and waste, Enerpoly is well poised to answer global trends with its sustainable battery innovation. Globally accessible materials reduce supply chain risks and carbon emissions related to transportation. The established recycling infrastructure for alkaline batteries benefits Enerpoly’s technology due to the similar materials used. After recycling, these materials can also be reused in production, contributing to a circular economy.
