Skoon Energy secures Series Funding of €5 Million A investment round sponsored by the North American investment firm Blue Bear Capital featured the Graduate Entrepreneur Fund.
Skoon may break into new international markets, bolster its personnel, and progress the development of its software platform thanks to the fresh capital.
Customers can choose the finest energy system for their particular requirements using its platform, actively track their energy use, and immediately report on carbon savings.
More than 150 recognized suppliers can be located on Skoon’s online marketplace, which is used by rental businesses throughout Europe, including Atlas Copco, Volta Energy, and Morillo Energy, as well as major energy consumers include Vattenfall, the Dutch Ministry of Defense, and the Port of Amsterdam.
According to Peter Paul van Voorst tot Voorst, founder and CEO of Skoon Energy: “The energy market today is going through tremendous growth and rapid change, which is challenging for most companies to keep up with. Our years of experience replacing fossil fuel generators at project sites, such as construction and film sets has positioned Skoon perfectly to provide clean mobile energy solutions everywhere. This also means Skoon is ready to tackle grid congestion challenges at a large scale.”
