The Energía Positiva+ platform estimates an initial investment of 4.19 million euros for the 12 startups definitely selected from the call launched on April 7. The initiative, which received 396 proposals in just 13 days, was successfully closed on April 19 and during the virtual event Positive Energy + Demo Day some of the finalists were announced.
The projects, by Spanish startups and scaleups with different degrees of maturity, offer innovative solutions for the new decarbonised energy model as well as proposals to mitigate the economic and social impact of COVID-19. In addition to financing, startups will receive support to develop pilot projects, technological co-development or venture clients. In some cases, several promoter companies will jointly invest or pilot the same startup. The startups / scaleups, focused on social impact against COVID-19, decarbonisation, renewable energy, energy efficiency, storage, sustainable mobility and circular economy, are: Solatom CSP SL, Hybrid Energy Storage Solutions SL (HESSTEC) Pastoria Project, SL, Nautilus Floating Solutions, SL, PFT Engineering Development, Light App SL, Cedrion Consultoría Técnica e Ingeniería SL, Ariema Energía, Cedanjobs (with its product Purefy), Voltaware Services Limited, BeePlanet Factory SL and Batterycare SL.
The companies have completed their analyzes and will soon close the collaboration agreement, subject to the corresponding administrative processes of each company in the coming weeks so that they can develop and implement their solutions within a maximum period of one year. Furthermore, and given the quality of the proposals received, the promoters will continue to analyze several of the projects not selected for possible support in the future.
