Almost exactly two years ago, Hyme Energy was born: a sister company to nuclear startup Seaborg Energy, which aims to accelerate the transition to a fossil-free future by bringing affordable molten salt energy storage to market on an industrial scale.

Hyme raised €10.4M when the company was founded in November 2021 and has since made tremendous progress. The company has matured its technology to the pilot stage, secured grants of an additional €10M for two demonstration projects, established strong relationships with potential industrial and utility customers globally, and built a team of global talent. And now Hyme can unveil another major investment round of €8M.

“This new funding is a recognition from current and new investors of the impressive progress Hyme has made in just two years since its founding. The investment will enable us to keep a fast pace in our mission to decarbonize industries and the energy sector,” says Ask Emil Løvschall-Jensen, CEO and co-founder.

€28 in two years

The Copenhagen-based startup has secured funding from existing shareholders, including Heartland A/S, Nordic Makers and North-East Ventures. VÅR Ventures comes in as one of the new investors. Including the €10m grant to Hyme and the partners in the ongoing projects, the new round brings the total investment sum to €28.4M – equivalent to 212 million kroner.

The funding will be used to reach important milestones in the coming year. One of them is the commissioning and operation of an industrial-scale pilot plant currently under construction in Esbjerg. In addition, the company is focusing on further technology and product development as it prepares for full market entry.
