European upcycled energy storage leader Libattion raises 14 million

A&G Energy Transition Tech Fund is leading the round together with Spanish automotive components manufacturer Teknia, the Portuguese fund HCapital New Ideas II and Swiss energy utility company EBL.


June 27, 2024 ( Libattion, a fast-growing, leading-edge company offering stationary energy storage solutions from upcycled electric vehicle batteries, has secured a total of €14 million from four international investors. The high level of interest by investors is based on the increasing demand for green battery storage systems across Europe. Libattion's goal is to provide the market with a more sustainable and cost-effective battery technology to reduce the import of critical resources and contribute to the decarbonization of industries.
Libattion offers unique algorithms and power control systems which ensure that the service life of the upcycled batteries is extended, achieving a technical performance equal to that of new batteries. The Swiss company produces innovative energy storage systems called "e-Racks", capable of covering a wide range of capacities, from 97 kWh to 60 MWh.

Thanks to their modularity and versatility, the storage systems provide energy flexibility services for companies, such as frequency control and peak demand reduction, as well as for fast charging of electric vehicles. Libattion batteries are perfectly suited to support critical infrastructure such as to hybridize renewable assets to store surplus energy.

"We strongly believe in the transition from electric car batteries to stationary systems as an alternative energy storage system," says the company's CEO and co-founder Stefan Bahamonde. "We are very pleased to have strong partners on board, who will help us achieve the next milestones. The successful investment round is a clear indicator of Libattion's strength and resilience, as well as of our enormous potential for future growth. The arrival of new partners will allow us to significantly increase our global presence, expanding our operations both in Europe and globally. We are determined to revolutionize the way in which the efficient use and reuse of batteries is managed, thus driving the transition to a more sustainable and energy-efficient future."

Juan Diego Bernal, Managing Director of A&G Energy Transition Tech Fund highlighted that "Libattion has all the key ingredients to become the European benchmark in its market. Its technology is on the right path to solving two major problems of the energy transition: on the one hand, it provides an economic alternative to the growing problem of waste from electric vehicle batteries and, on the other hand, it offers an optimal supply alternative for stationary energy storage."

For his part, Teknia's Director of Strategy, Alejandro Deleyto, explained that "this investment is directly linked to Teknia Partners' intention to invest in sustainable mobility and fits perfectly with Teknia's strategic plan, which is firmly committed to sustainability as a key pillar in our business as a manufacturer of mobility components."

Gonçalo Sousa Coutinho, Associate Partner at HCapital Partners, states, "We are very confident in the important role that all investors can play in consolidating the leading position of Libattion's battery upcycling solution in the energy storage arena and in supporting its business growth, especially through the access to new international markets."

"Energy storage will be a paramount theme and major area of investment within the energy space. It is thus critical that sustainable solutions like the one provided by Libattion are brought to market in order to maximize material reusage and reduce life-cycle costs", commented Tobias Andrist, CEO EBL.
