Aurignac Finance acted as exclusive financial advisor for the deeptech startup ENERGO in the completion of its €16.5 million Series A fundraising round led by Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale, GTT and Nord France Amorçag

Founded in 2018 by Vincent Piepiora on the basis of academic research conducted at Chimie Paris Tech – Université PSL, ENERGO conceives and develops a disruptive technology based on the coupling of catalysis and cold plasma. ENERGO brings a major disruption to many industrial chemical processes. The technology enables massive decarbonization of key value chains, including the production of biofuels and green hydrogen.

ENERGO has developed a competitive, compact solution that can be adapted to any site, providing a decentralized approach conducive to the energy transition. Due to its versatility and disruptive operating conditions (low pressure and temperature, resistance to pollutants, etc.) this technology can be used in a wide range of application to help decarbonize industry and transport.

Part of the first La French Tech 2030 selection in 2023, ENERGO has benefitted since its inception from the support of Bpifrance, ADEME, the Hauts-de-France region, PSL Chimie Paris Université and the European Union.

These funds raised from financial, industrial and institutional investors will enable ENERGO to commercially deploy its cold plasma catalytic reactors, strengthen its teams and set up a manufacturing and testing facility in Loos, near Lille. The company will also accelerate its R&D program and the development of new applications.
