Equinor Ventures-led consortium invests €30 million in electricity storage company Elestor

Arnhem, Aug 30, 2022

Dutch large-scale electricity storage company Elestor has secured a €30 million investment from a consortium led by the corporate venture capital arm of the Norwegian energy giant Equinor.

The consortium also includes the venture capital arm of the world’s leading independent tank storage company Royal Vopak, Dutch impact investor Invest-NL (as co-lead investor) and Somerset Capital Partners, as well as existing shareholders EIT InnoEnergy and Enfuro Ventures.

“The investment proves that we have earned the trust and support of this diverse group of highly respected investors. During the investment process, coordinated by Deloitte Corporate Finance as Elestor’s exclusive advisor, the investors have carried out a comprehensive technical and operational due diligence that has validated both our technology and our ability to deliver,” said Guido Dalessi, CEO, Elestor.

Elestor, which has been ranked as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the Netherlands*, is now ready to implement an ultra-rapid growth strategy that will accelerate the commercialisation of its proven hydrogen bromine flow battery technology, up to a GW scale production facility, which is a truly unprecedented development.

“We are ready to deliver exactly the kind of renewable electricity storage solutions the world is crying out for right now: Long Duration Energy Storage, or LDES. Expansion of Elestor’s production capacity and supply chain management is under the control of Hylke van Bennekom (COO, Elestor), who joined the company’s management team in April 2021 through a Management Buy-In (MBI),” said Dalessi.

Breakthrough technology
Founded in 2014 by Elestor’s Chief Technology Officer Wiebrand Kout, Elestor has developed flow batteries using hydrogen and bromine as active materials, both available at virtually unlimited quantities. In addition, as the battery generates hydrogen during the charging process, the concept introduces several new and unique possibilities for integration with hydrogen infrastructures and electrolysers. As such, the Elestor technology bridges the two worlds of energy storage: with batteries – but unlike normal batteries, Elestor’s can be enormous – and in the form of hydrogen. The technology makes it possible to […]
