Pantheon Infrastructure has committed to invest approximately £35m in battery storage and electric vehicle fleet specialist Zenobe, through a co-investment vehicle managed by Infracapital, a leading European infrastructure investor that has raised and managed over £7bn in assets.
Zenobe provides essential infrastructure that contributes to international power and transport sector decarbonisation targets. In addition to providing electrification solutions for vehicle fleet owners, its batteries help balance the supply of renewable energy on the grid. At the end of their lifecycle Zenobe repurposes the batteries for further use, thus contributing to the building of a circular economy. Since the company was founded in 2017, it has delivered 435MW of grid-connected battery capacity, and has provided bus operators with c.1,000 electric vehicles under a leasing structure.
The company has fast-growing operations in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Benelux, with its international headquarters in London. In the UK, Zenobe is a leading owner and operator of battery storage, supporting National Grid with the uptake of renewable power and working with the major bus companies to power the UK e-bus market.
