Angel Funding, cleantech, funding, London, eleXsys Energy, investment

London-based cleantech energy company eleXsys Energy has developed a unique technology to drive the transition of global energy grids to a clean energy future. Now, the company raised £640K through Angel Investment Network, the world’s largest online angel investment platform.

Eyes to grow globally

The investment round was a part of a larger £5 million funding, including a Series A round of £3.55 million. The funds will allow the business to continue to invest in its technology as it rapidly grows its global reach. This is eleXsys Energy’s first raise overseas and marks a significant step for the company.

According to Richard Romanowski, co-founder and Executive Director, of eleXsys: “We are delighted to have completed a successful round of fundraising with Angel Investment Network. Our technology is critical for the transition to clean energy – one of the world’s most pressing challenges. Funding from investors across the world confirms the transglobal appetite for investment opportunities in new cleantech solutions, aiming to tackle global carbon reduction targets. We are a rapidly growing business and with the capital raised, we will be able to further drive our strategic plans for expansion and deliver on our goals for our new and existing investors.”

According to Sam Louis, Head of Consultancy at Angel Investment Network: “We are excited to be working with eleXsys Energy in this period of significant growth for the company. This raise ensured that eleXsys secured the backing of strategic and experienced investors as they expand their global reach and make their mark on international markets. Our passion-driven investors want to support businesses that solve real problems and there’s arguably few greater problems to solve than how to dramatically scale the move to clean energy.”

Solar-powered, grid-connected rooftops

Established in 2015 by Richard Romanowski, eleXsys Energy originated in Australia but has now reorganised and headquartered in London. Its innovative technology unlocks the full potential of electricity networks to host multiple times cleaner, more distributed energy without expensive network infrastructure upgrades. By providing services that enable a two-way flow of electricity on grids, the platform supports the most efficient, low-cost means of delivering clean distributed solar or wind energy.

With this technology, eleXsys enables large commercial and industrial rooftops to become grid-connected, solar power plants. The company has over 270 customers, including 11 industrial rooftops across schools and government, agricultural and commercial buildings. Its technology is being installed to build the IKEA eleXsys Microgrid at IKEA Adelaide, which will become 100% powered by renewable generation by 2025.
