hello energy raises 1 million euros in investment round for even more sustainable impact!
hello energy, the tool for energy and sustainability management for large real estate companies, has raised one million euros in an investment round. This pre-series A round was led by Enfuro Ventures and supported by a number of investors from the Netherlands and the UK.
The investment round comes at a strategic moment. hello energy is increasingly used by large, often international, innovative and sustainable real estate funds. Major players such as Prologis, NSI, citizenM hotels, Bouwinvest and Avignon Capital already use hello energy. hello energy is already being used in more than 1,000 buildings in more than 10 countries, including the Netherlands, the UK, Belgium, France and Germany. This new capital injection enables hello energy to continue to grow exponentially with new and existing customers in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.
hello energy contributes to the CO2 reduction of buildings
Benno Schwarz, co-founder and CEO of hello energy:
“Buildings are responsible for 40% of CO2 emissions in the Netherlands. There are comparable figures abroad. Our software and services not only enable our customers to visualize energy consumption in buildings, but also to be able to continue to meet the strong growth in terms of regulation and necessary CO2 reduction.”
With the growth capital, hello energy is continuing to expand its team, especially in the field of development and sales. The search for new talent is in full swing:
“We are an attractive company for top talent,” adds co-founder and COO Kees van Alphen, “with plenty of opportunity to contribute to super-cool features, with international clients, personal development and an energetic team.”
