How To Invest In Power Transition

Our ambition is to become a universal transaction platform for energy systems worldwide – the common seamless operating language for energy management and trading, from micro-grids to electric vehicles to national networks.

In early 2018 Power Transition raised seed funding which was match funded by Innovate UK; these funds were used to develop and deploy its technology at a 47 unit eco-home development in Corby, UK that was designed by the leadership team.

Following the success of this project, Power Transition is developing its platform beyond the micro-grid use case and is engaging with numerous parties including commercial estates and local authorities, the NHS, Distributed Network Operators, energy aggregators, and energy producers. We are in discussions with BEIS, KTN, regulators and decision makers in the UK energy sector and are in conversation with Elexon about the implementation of our platform at national level.

Investment Opportunity

The current global pandemic has highlighted the necessity for energy security, stability and maintaining the health and wellbeing of all. Covid-19 has only strengthened the need to continue our business development activities, develop new opportunities for energy asset optimisation, produce new revenue models to sustain our customers business activities and enable further uptake of clean energy and storage onto the grid.

Significant interest in our software architecture platform continues as it provides a much needed short, medium and long term solution for grid networks and the energy sector, which is under significant pressure with or without Covid-19. Our solution enables the efficient exchange and access of data across multiple energy vectors and assets, whilst guaranteeing cybersecurity. Our platform helps to keep the lights on and builds resilience in the sector. It creates new revenue streams, provides optimisation to enable Distributed Energy Resource Management and supports flexibility services, whilst saving carbon and reducing energy costs.

Following initial seed investment our target was revised to £300K at a £2.8M pre-money valuation. This mid course correction was in response to the current Covid-19 global crisis. Following our successful Crowdcube raise enquiries about direct investment can be made via: info@ptvolts.com

We secured the upfront investment and launched our Crowd Cube campaign in April 2020 and raised £254,700 from over 600 investors.
