Num­bat rais­es mil­lions for fast-charg­ing sta­tions with inte­grat­ed bat­tery storage

E‑mobility is boom­ing and Num­bat, a clean­tech start­up found­ed in 2021, is right on time with its fast-charg­ing solu­tion. While the num­ber of e‑cars is grow­ing expo­nen­tial­ly, the expan­sion of the nec­es­sary fast-charg­ing infra­struc­ture is not keep­ing pace. As a result, e‑car dri­vers often have lit­tle or no oppor­tu­ni­ty to quick­ly charge their e‑cars. This is par­tic­u­lar­ly evi­dent in the area of high-pow­er charg­ers (HPC), which are lack­ing through­out Europe due to high invest­ment costs and a com­plex con­nec­tion to the pow­er grid. With a unique com­bi­na­tion of HPC and bat­tery stor­age, Num­bat can make High-Pow­er Charg­ing a real­i­ty any­where and for any­one. The fast charg­ing sta­tions are oper­at­ed by Num­bat under a plat­form model.

With a fast and straight­for­ward instal­la­tion, Num­bat leads the mar­ket. High-pow­er charg­ing becomes eco­nom­i­cal­ly viable thanks to the inte­grat­ed bat­tery stor­age. In addi­tion, large con­struc­tion mea­sures are obso­lete and the pow­er grids are also relieved. In this way, Num­bat con­tributes sig­nif­i­cant­ly to a suc­cess­ful ener­gy tran­si­tion and ensures inde­pen­dent high-pow­er charg­ing with high avail­abil­i­ty for every­one, everywhere.

The first 50 sites are cur­rent­ly being equipped, and by 2022 they will form the dens­est region­al fast-charg­ing net­work in Ger­many. In the com­plet­ed financ­ing round, Num­bat was able to secure a medi­um, dou­ble-dig­it mil­lion amount. The young com­pa­ny will thus con­tin­ue to grow and rev­o­lu­tion­ize the ener­gy and mobil­i­ty mar­ket with its inno­v­a­tive prod­uct. There are also already con­crete plans for 2023: 600 addi­tion­al sys­tems are to fur­ther advance the expan­sion of a nation­wide fast-charg­ing infra­struc­ture. Num­bat­’s goal is to become the lead­ing provider of fast charg­ing infra­struc­ture in Europe.
