Warwickshire-based manufacturer of energy storage solutions Off Grid Energy has secured a £1.25m investment to scale-up its operations.
The funding has enabled Off Grid Energy to relocate to its new 30,000sq ft premises at Stepnell Park, Rugby.
The site will enable the business to become a full production operation that will create 30 jobs.
Off Grid Energy secured the finance from The Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF), provided by The FSE Group, Debt Finance Fund and backed by the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).
Janene Dooler, joint managing director of Off Grid Energy, said: “Our recent exciting relocation means that now all our energy needs are met by renewable sources and combined with having a private network on the estate, gives us the ability to develop our technology to the max. Since 2011, we have pioneered and become experts in providing smart, efficient power solutions which save money and significantly reduce carbon footprint in the temporary power sector.
“Our technology saves costs and has huge sustainability impact displacing the use of diesel generators reducing carbon emissions and tackling air quality issues. In emerging sectors, such as energy storage and EV charging, for those struggling with grid power, or where there is no grid available, we work with you to find the most cost-effective solution, with the least environmental impact, delivered in the shortest possible time. Our focus is to offer zero or net carbon neutral energy solutions. The funding received from MEIF via Chirag at The FSE Group, will enable us to grow and expand as a business, enabling high quality job creation to permit us to develop our products to enable us to achieve this goal.”
Chirag Mistry, fund manager, at The FSE Group, which manages the MEIF Debt Finance Fund, added: “I am delighted to be supporting Off Grid Energy through The FSE Group & The Midlands Engine Investment Fund. Off Grid Energy is an exciting organisation supporting the transition to low emissions and is a leader in this specialist sector. They are an experienced team making a real difference with their products and applications, serving a wide range of sectors across the UK. Off Grid Energy offers a glimpse of what the future will look like and how we can embrace technology to improve the environment now, not in 2030. The funding will enable Off Grid to retain, grow and develop its workforce boosting the local economy.”
