Zenobē Energy was established to enable the transition to full zero carbon, non-polluting power and transport systems. We provide solutions to fundamental problems that can be implemented at scale and make significant improvements to the environment and local communities.
We bring a track record of being first to market with innovative solutions for our customers. Zenobe is the first company to provide a full EV fleet solution for operators wanting to change from fossil fuel to electric emission free vehicles. We enable charging and provide financing solutions that remove the upfront capital cost from operators. Our innovative end to end solution means that today we serve c. 20% of the UK bus market.
Other innovations include being the first battery operator in the UK’s Fast Reserve market, the first to participate in providing reactive power for the National Grid and UKPN Power Potential pilot and the first to raise non-recourse senior debt on batteries to lower costs for customers.
We aim to be the first choice for energy-intensive businesses who want to transform their use of power.
Our proprietary software and hardware systems enable us to integrate different assets and operating models to provide lower costs and enhanced resilience to our customers. We also improve returns for customers who own their own generation assets.
Zenobe aims to be the first choice for energy-intensive businesses who want to transform their use of power. Today we have 170MW of grid scale batteries in operation or construction across the UK, including the largest BYD and Tesla installations in the UK. We also own batteries providing flexible power solutions to bus operators and have a pipeline of projects in the UK and abroad.
In 2020, Zenobe acquired a £150m investment from Infracapital of M&G Investments to support the company’s continuing expansion into green, clean electric buses and grid-scale batteries across the UK and beyond. Additionally, Zenobe is backed by other leading strategic investors in energy storage with £25m of equity from JERA Storage BV, a joint venture from Japanese energy giants Tepco and Chubu; the first non-recourse debt facility against battery storage projects from Santander Group (£25m), completed in 2019; and receivables financing from NatWest Group (£20m) in June 2020, to support Zenobe’s EV fleet business. Our strong capital and knowledge base, as well as access to a global supply chain, means we are uniquely positioned to meet customer demands with innovative solutions.
