“Amid the continued Covid-19 pandemic, 2021 offered some silver linings, including the accelerated rate of digitization and an intensified focus on environmental sustainability. At the growing intersection of these two parameters, digital players are transforming the energy ecosystem with new technologies at a faster pace than ever before. This is evident in the growth and successes of our portfolio companies over the past year. We are proud to support our start-ups with the tools they need to innovate further, roll out their solutions on a larger scale and maximize their potential with new strategic partners.

“In 2022, we look forward to further strengthening our portfolio and taking our promising start-ups in the fields of future energy, cities, and technologies to the next level. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and contribution toward the success of the energy transition.”
