PORTLAND, Oregon—(November, 2022)— ZincFive®, the world leader in nickel-zinc battery-based solutions for immediate power applications, announced it has raised $54 million in Series D funding.  The Series D investment brings ZincFive’s total funding since inception to $139 million.

The funding accelerates ZincFive’s penetration into existing markets including mission critical applications in data centers, intelligent transportation, and industrial engine starting as well as providing the growth capital to enter new high-power energy segments and geographies. In addition to investments in channel and product development, the funding will accelerate the build-out of annual high-volume production capacity to meet rapidly growing customer demand.

Helios Climate Ventures led the current round. In addition to Helios, other pre-existing investors who also chose to make an investment in this round in further support of ZincFive’s mission and nickel-zinc power solutions include Senator Investment Group and Standard Investments. New investors include OGCI Climate Investments and Japan Energy Fund, among others.

“ZincFive is transforming the energy storage market and we are happy to be a part of this journey,” says Jesse Johnson, Managing Director at Helios Climate Ventures. “ZincFive’s nickel-zinc battery energy storage solutions are powerful, reliable, safe, and highly sustainable, having significantly lower end-to-end climate impact than alternative battery chemistries. As a result, the market is responding with commercial demand spiking and the customer roster rapidly expanding.”

“We are excited to join the impressive roster of ZincFive investors,” says Marc van den Berg, Managing Director at OGCI Climate Investments. “ZincFive’s technology significantly decreases the environmental and carbon impact surrounding the growing use of batteries to electrify commercial and industrial sectors. We see significant potential for ZincFive to collaborate with OGCI members and fellow portfolio companies on a range of applications.”

“It is great to see our current investors returning in the Series D round as well as to welcome new investors who recognize the current commercial success and substantial future company growth,” said ZincFive Co-founder and CEO Tim Hysell. “We are grateful to the investor community for their fervent support of ZincFive’s mission and global expansion. We look forward to continuing to bring innovative nickel-zinc technology to the market.”
