QVentures invests into Renewabl, climate-tech software company

Investors in this round: QVentures

Renewabl, a London, UK-based climate-tech software company, raised £1.1M in Pre-Seed funding.

The round was structured by South Pole, QVentures and Portfolion with participation from Syndicate Room and a number of strategic angels.

The company intends to use the funds to further develop its hourly-matched renewable energy certificate platform in preparation for European rollout.

Led by CEO Juan Pablo Cerda and CTO Nikolaj Martyniuk, Renewabl will allow companies across the UK and Europe to access hourly-matched certificates directly from hydrogen, hydro, wind and solar assets on a 24/7 hour basis. The product, built using the latest technology and market/industry knowledge, is particularly valuable for organisations looking for a traceable / time-stamped solution to guarantee the origin of their certificates, as well as compliance to initiatives like CDP and RE100.

Today, nearly all of the world’s top 250 companies (G250) report on sustainability and actively seek solutions to reduce their scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Renewabl will be a critical tool for companies to reach their sustainability targets and understand the provenance of their energy certificates.

Juan Pablo Cerda, CEO and Founder says:“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 comments: “As corporate commitment to renewable energy grows and government initiatives like CDP and RE100 take effect, verifying energy origin and timing becomes 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.”
