EnBW New Ventures invests 10 million euros in Clerverciti Systems

14. Febru­ary 2018

Munich — Munich-based parking sensor provi­der Cler­ver­citi Systems has found a second inves­tor in EnBW New Ventures. The venture capi­tal subsi­diary of the Baden-Würt­­te­m­­berg-based energy giant is inves­t­ing ten million euros in the start-up, which wants to take the plunge into the Ameri­can market. The group of inves­tors in Clever­citi Systems alre­ady includes the Belgian invest­ment company SPDG.

Clever­citi Systems has been produ­cing systems for energy-saving parking manage­ment since 2012. Free parking spaces are displayed to the minute by means of perma­nently instal­led sensors. In 2016, the company was able to win the Belgian inves­tor SPDG. With EnBW New Ventures, the company is now aiming to market its digi­tal tech­no­logy internationally.

For some time now, EnBW New Ventures has been making targe­ted invest­ments in young compa­nies that repre­sent the digi­ta­li­zed energy world of the future. The port­fo­lio includes, for exam­ple, Theva, a Bava­rian equip­ment manu­fac­tu­rer, and Lumen­aza, a Berlin-based soft­ware company foun­ded in 2013 that offers solu­ti­ons for regio­nal power supply.
