Background

Vienna, 14 May, 2024. Despite the challenges we face on the way to net zero by 2050, we already have the most effective tool for the advancement of the energy transition at our disposal: technological innovation. enspired, a pioneer for AI-based power trading, has secured € 25,5 million in Series B funding, led by Zouk Capital, to accelerate the energy transition with grid-transforming power asset optimization. Facilitating the large-scale integration of renewable energy sources, enspired's automated and highly scalable trading infrastructure is on track to enable 50 GW of flexibility by 2035. A key focus on this trajectory is the expansion of battery storage capacity across relevant power markets worldwide to foster a sustainable electricity supply system for the future.

Profitable flexibility marketing cuts emissions and reforms energy investments

After a massively oversubscribed funding round, enspired is thrilled to have Zouk Capital on board as the lead investor,with PUSH VC, Banpu NEXT, Vopak Ventures, and Presidio Ventures acting as co-investors alongside trusted existing partners Emerald Technology Ventures, Helen Ventures, 360 Capital, and EnBW New Ventures. In light of lagging international decarbonization efforts, enspired CEO and Co-founder Jürgen Mayerhofer emphasizes the global significance of the company’s optimization strategy for the energy transition:

“We are grateful to be in a position that allows us to choose partners whose ambitions and values align with our own. Our shared perspective on carbon footprint reduction and entrepreneurial expansion is intercontinental. Going global with our asset-centric trading service will make flexibility so profitable that investments are directed away from fossil fuels into clean energy. In the last year alone, we enabled over one million tons of emission savings, and this is only the beginning.”

Progressive technology ensures superior battery optimization and access to global markets

enspired's AI-based approach to power asset optimization and the dedication to the energy transition represent precisely the type of innovation we aim to support at Zouk,” comments John Higelin, Partner at Zouk Capital. “Leveraging digital technology to deliver more value for renwable energy and storage assets while improving grid stability is crucial for accelerating the energy transition. enspired's vision aligns fully with Zouk's impact mission.
