KYOTO Group disconnects the time power is made from when it is used by leveraging increasing energy market fluctuations and excess power from wind and solar. The Company offer competitive, reliable, and efficient storage of energy and seamless delivery of heat to industrial customers, when it is needed.
“KYOTO Group is founded on the idea that a molten salt thermal battery could significantly reduce carbon emissions in industrial heat generation by reducing wind and solar power productivity fluctuations,” says Christopher Kjølner, the CEO of KYOTO Group. “We have moved beyond the ‘idea’ phase and have ordered the first Heatcube for commercial installation, backed by an experienced team and industrial owners. Now we are moving from start-up to scale-up with the commercialization of our solution supported by the recent capital raises and Euronext Growth listing and a clear long-term growth strategy."
During the first half, KYOTO Group raised NOK 183.8 million of new equity to fund execution of the growth strategy, followed by a listing on Euronext Growth in Oslo in March. The funds will be deployed on continued investments in technology, commercialisation and the Kyoto Group organisation. At 30 June, the Company’s cash position amounted to NOK 158.9 million.
