Numbat announces PORTFOLIO NEWS
the closing of € 1 billion financing facility
Through an investment by PATRIZIA’s European Infrastructure funds, the cleantech company Numbat has found an investor for its projects. PATRIZIA is already successfully active in sustainable infrastructure and will support the rapid and widespread expansion of fast-charging infrastructure in Germany and beyond.
The total investment volume of PATRIZIA together with a German banking syndicate, led by the DAL (Deutsche Anlagen-Leasing), enables the financing of Numbat’s current and future projects.
An innovative solution characterizes Numbat: A fast charging station and battery storage combination enables high-power charging at any location independent of the electricity grid. This groundbreaking technology allows fast and uncomplicated installation and, at the same time, relieves existing grids through its intelligent energy management. The integration of on-site PV systems ensures that fast charging is not only sustainable but also economical, both for Numbat and for the site partners. In this way, Numbat contributes significantly to the successful energy transition and is revolutionizing the energy sector with its approach.
With contracts already in place with leading German retail companies such as tegut…, Norma, EURONICS and hagebaumarkt, it is possible to install and operate thousands of fast charging points. With PATRIZIA’s funding combined with lenders, investments of well over one billion euros are feasible.
The hard work has paid off, as we can now enter the strong growth phase and rapidly scale Numbat nationally and internationally. Customers are ready to contribute significantly to the energy transition through Numbat, contracts have been signed, and further collaborations are imminent. Hardware availability is secured, and our team is ready to establish Numbat as the market leader.
