In the latest development in a major Series C funding round that saw Ingenious join existing investors Octopus and RES in October, Equinor, a Norwegian broader energy company, through its venture arm, has joined Reactive Technologies’ board as a strategic investor. The 8-digit Series C raised supports Reactive’s exciting growth ambitions.

Reactive Technologies is an energy tech company facilitating the transition to a low carbon future through the implementation of highly innovative solutions to address the energy industry’s greatest challenges. Reactive Technologies offers unique measurement and analytics services for grid operators and technology-led Power Purchase Agreements for renewable generators.

“We are delighted that Equinor has joined us as a strategic investor. Their investment demonstrates a further validation of our business model and growth potential. The additional funds enable us to expand our team of energy and communications engineering experts and to significantly scale up our power purchase optimisation and grid measurement & analytics services to reach renewable generators and system operators globally.” Marc Borrett, CEO and Co-Founder at Reactive Technologies.

“Equinor has decided to be part of Reactive’s ambitious journey because of the uniqueness and scalability of its offering and the complementarity it brings to our renewable portfolio. Reactive has developed a unique technology to monitor the power grid using real time analytics which combined with the power trading team creates the potential to accelerate the energy transition,” says Gareth Burns, Vice President in Equinor and Managing Director at Equinor Energy Ventures.

This additional funding will allow Reactive Technologies to speed up international growth and to continue to develop and deploy its growing range of highly innovative services.
