In the last three years, GridBeyond has expanded into several markets including North America, Japan and Australia. The company has grown revenue by an average 75% per annum over the last two years and is expecting a further 85% revenue growth in 2023.
GridBeyond plans to go beyond
The funding will be used to support GridBeyond’s expansion plans and bolster its team.
The latest round of funding brings the Dublin-headquartered scaleup’s total capital raised to €16m, from existing investors Energias de Portugal (EDP), Electricity Supply Board (ESB), Total Carbon Neutrality Ventures and Act Venture Capital.
“GridBeyond is at an exciting juncture in its evolution, scaling rapidly over the last number of years with a further 85% forecast revenue growth in 2023,” said GridBeyond’s chief operating officer Richard O’Loughlin.
“This partnership, enables us to continue apace with our global expansion plans. It will also further allow the Company to strengthen our position in the market and provide new opportunities to our customers not only to bolster their energy resilience and mitigate against high and volatile energy costs, but to make cost savings that can be further invested into actions that support their own net zero transition.“
In response to the energy crisis, most recently GridBeyond has developed a new hedging and trading product which can be offered alongside its funded energy storage offering.
“Helping transform energy into revenue opportunities for businesses, the team at GridBeyond blends problem solving with groundbreaking technology,” said David Bateman, managing partner of Claret.
“Their exponential growth impressed us and we’re excited to join Michael, Richard and the team with the newly launched Claret Capital fund and look forward to supporting them on their growth journey as they continue to drive change in the energy sector.”
