Skoon Energy, the leading AI-powered software platform for clean mobile energy, today announced the closing of $5.6M in Series A funding, led by Blue Bear Capital, with participation from Graduate Entrepreneur Fund. The new funding enables Skoon to grow its team, advance the development of its software platform, and expand into new global markets.
Skoon Energy aims to reshape on-site energy supply by connecting users of traditional fossil fuel powered generators with suppliers of clean mobile energy systems, such as batteries and hydrogen generators. The company’s AI-powered software platform enables customers to select the best energy system for their specific needs, actively monitor their energy usage, and report on carbon savings with the click of a button.
By facilitating both supply and demand, Skoon enables cost-effective, zero-emission energy for applications such as construction sites, events, and on-site film production. Suppliers of Skoon’s clean energy systems benefit from increased asset utilization through its marketplace. Skoon’s software tools centralize financial and energy data, so it can be used to better manage their rental fleet.
Skoon’s online marketplace is the world’s largest network of more than 150 verified suppliers of clean mobile energy systems, including batteries, hydrogen, and solar generators—which solve temporary power needs across various end markets—while providing clean energy. Currently, Skoon’s platform is being utilized by rental companies across Europe including Atlas Copco, Volta Energy and Morillo Energy, as well as large scale energy users such as Vattenfall, the Dutch Ministry of Defence and the Port of Amsterdam.
With scalable and data-driven access to energy systems globally, grid operators can turn to Skoon to enable flexibility in the electricity grid. Instead of relying on legacy infrastructure, which can be outdated, grid operators can deploy a mobile grid—mobile energy systems—to support or replace their electricity grid at scale. This flexibility in time and location placement allows grid operators and their customers to save costs and efficiencies to unlock the benefits of freedom in planning.
