Once the pilot is completed, it will allow EIS to offer Naked Energy's solar technology to a range of customers who will benefit from reduced fossil fuel usage and improved financial returns. Naked Energy's solar heat and hybrid technology supports customers with high energy demand and limited available space providing high energy density solar technology.

“It's an honor to partner with E.ON and support their customers to become climate neutral” said Christophe Williams, CEO and co-founder of Naked Energy. “The need to decarbonise urban and industrial heating has never been more urgent, and the team at EIS share our vision for ambitious energy solutions that are future-proof, smart and efficient. This deal marks an exciting step forward in Naked Energy's journey as we scale our operations globally. “We look forward to beginning our work together.”

The E.ON Group is one of Europe's largest operators of energy networks and energy infrastructure and a provider of innovative solutions for its city, industry and consumer customers. The company runs multiple worldwide Innovation programs like “Free Electrons” to find, test and scale new technology solutions like Naked Energy to drive forward the energy transition in Europe.

“Leveraging every available space, especially in limited environments, is crucial for generating renewable energy on a large scale” added Mark Ritzmann, Managing Director at E.ON Group Innovation. “E.ON is committed to climate protection and the sustainable energy transition. Highly innovative technology partners like Naked Energy play a pivotal role in expediting the transition to sustainable energy. “We are excited about this partnership.”

EIS provides integrated, sustainable, and digitally enabled energy solutions for cities and industries to reduce their carbon emissions. In 16 European countries, EIS services 1.5 million customers through 4,500 plants, which collectively produce 19 terawatt hours of heating, cooling, and steam and 12 terawatt hours of electricity.

Naked Energy is the British developer of the world's highest energy density solar technology for flat roofs. Their solar heat collectors save up to four times the amount of carbon as standard solar PV panels and are perfectly positioned for the decarbonization of heat in the global commercial and industrial space.

The company's technology will be offered to a range of EIS customers across Europe who have a strong use case for renewable heat, such as breweries, food and beverage, apartment blocks, hotels, leisure centers with swimming pools, and district heat networks.

The deal builds momentum for Naked Energy as they now scale their technology for a global market and complete their Series B funding round, targeting £30 million.
