In a groundbreaking move towards sustainable energy solutions, Rotterdam-based Skoon Energy has just raised an impressive €5 million in its Series A funding round. The company's mission? To usher in a new era of clean, mobile energy by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence.
Leading this game-changing funding round is Blue Bear Capital, known for its investments in forward-thinking ventures. The Graduate Entrepreneur Fund is another vital contributor, underscoring the immense potential Skoon Energy brings to the clean energy landscape.
The journey of innovation for Skoon Energy began in 2017 when it was founded by Peter Paul van Voorst tot Voorst. With a vision that transcends traditional fossil fuel-powered generators, the company has developed a cutting-edge AI-powered software platform that's set to revolutionize the way we consume and manage energy.
Skoon Energy's platform serves as a dynamic marketplace connecting users of fossil fuel generators with suppliers of green mobile energy solutions, including batteries, hydrogen, and solar generators. This innovative approach empowers consumers to select the ideal energy system for their specific requirements while actively monitoring their energy consumption and environmental impact.
The implications of Skoon's technology are profound, enabling cost-effective, zero-emission energy across diverse sectors such as construction, events, and on-site film production. By centralizing financial and energy data, Skoon's software tools promise more efficient fleet management for rental companies.
Skoon's online marketplace boasts a vast network of over 150 verified suppliers, offering clean mobile energy solutions that cater to various markets and end-users. Rental companies across Europe, including Atlas Copco, Volta Energy, and Morillo Energy, along with esteemed entities like the Dutch Ministry of Defence and the Port of Amsterdam, are already leveraging Skoon's platform to lead the way in sustainable energy practices.
But Skoon's influence extends beyond just sustainability; it's transforming the energy grid. By introducing a level of flexibility not seen before, grid operators can adapt to the ever-changing energy landscape. No longer beholden to legacy infrastructure, they can deploy mobile grids, saving costs, improving efficiency, and enhancing overall grid stability.
"Flexibility is the future of electricity, and Skoon is the gateway to that future—a platform for easy access to clean mobile energy systems," says Auke van den Hout, Managing Partner at Graduate Entrepreneur Fund. Skoon Energy is poised to revolutionize the $10 billion global power rental market and help us step into a cleaner, more sustainable future.
Skoon Energy's €5 million Series A funding marks a significant step towards making clean, mobile energy more accessible than ever. With artificial intelligence at its core, the company is poised to reshape the way we harness and manage power. From rental companies to grid operators, Skoon Energy is bringing flexibility, sustainability, and innovation to the forefront of the energy landscape.
