Suena offers an innovative, cloud-based optimisation software with which the operation of energy plants can be continuously optimised techno-economically on the basis of forecast models. The start-up from the Technical University of Hamburg has just successfully completed its pre-seed financing. The scientists are supervised by beyourpilot and Professor Thorsten Alexander Kern from the Institute of Mechatronics and Machienenbau.
The start-up Suena was able to raise around 1.2 million euros in capital in its pre-seed financing round. The largest investor is the innovation fund EIT Innoenergy, with Vireo Ventures and Raakwark Kaptaal also participating. In addition to the funding round, the startup is pleased to have been accepted into the E-Combinator and Spinlab Accelerator funding programmes.
Founded in 2021, Suena uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence methods to connect energy systems. Specifically, this means that they calculate an optimal schedule for each plant. The optimisation software suena opt makes it possible to use energy plants for multiple applications and to operate in different markets.
“We are delighted with the confidence of our investors, who support us in our mission to accelerate the energy transition,” explains chief executive Lennard Wilkening at Startbase. “With the fresh capital, we can accelerate product development and the implementation of pilot projects to serve the urgent need for innovative solutions for the use of energy storage as quickly as possible.”
