Renewabl, a London-based climate-tech software company, raised £1.1 million in pre-seed funding. The investment round was led by South Pole, QVentures (which invested in CareerPaths, AllotMe, and CloudNC), and Portfolion with participation from Syndicate Room and a number of strategic angels.
The London startup intends to use the funds to further develop its hourly-matched renewable energy certificate platform in preparation for European rollout.
Juan Pablo Cerda, CEO and Founder said: “We are excited to get started and solve a
pressing issue around greenwashing and questions that a lot of the corporate sector are
asking right now: where do my certificates come from? will they count towards my
sustainability targets? are they impactful? Can they be matched to my exact consumption?
This is why Renewabl was born.”
Harveer Bharaj, Principal at QVentures commented: “As corporate commitment to renewable
energy grows and government initiatives like CDP and RE100 take effect, verifying energy
origin and timing become crucial. Renewabl’s 24/7 energy platform makes this accessible for all, and we’re excited to support Juan Pablo and Nikolaj as they revolutionize energy provenance for companies.”
