Likely Award of a Geothermal License in Italy

Geotermica, which is a trade name of Renewable Ventures Nordic AB are in the process of revitalising a Geothermal energy project on the Eolian Islands in the Sicily region of Italy. The license for this project was initially applied for in 2011, but it was then awarded by the authorities to the competing company K Energy Srl. Lately the authorities in Sicily have ordered this license to be revocated, i.e. withdrawn. As being the second original applicant Geotermica has now come in the position for the award of the license. We are now preparing necessary legal action to enforce our application expecting to be able to sign the license during 2019. The work program will then start by exploring the geothermal energy resource, and involve a planned collaboration with local electricity companies in Sicily and the Eolian Islands. The project is targeting to supply current electricity consumption on the Eolian Island, with an installed geothermal production capacity of 4 MW.

Share Issue November 2018

Dear new and existing shareholder,

The board of Renewable Ventures Nordic has decided to implement a new share issue, starting on November 1. Terms and conditions can be found below. The issue is being made to continue broadening the investment portfolio. In 2019, the plan is to make the share tradable through listing on a trading list.

So far we have invested in the companies Mindconnect, GC Infra, Reliefed, Eco Etanol at Sweden and Soliga Energi. Mindconnect offers the services CityFlow and Eventico, with time and fuel-saving vehicle navigation as well as logistics for major events. GC Infra provides new smart services demanded to build the infrastructure for charging electric vehicles. Reliefed has patented innovation for industrial production, which provides significant savings in material and energy consumption. Eco Etanol at Sweden has developed a patented process for the treatment of legumes, which increases the possibility of using field bean as an alternative to imported soy protein. Soliga Energi offers the design and installation of small-scale PV systems.

During the summer and autumn we have evaluated several new opportunities which have given us the opportunity to enter some new companies. One has a unique e-commerce solution for rent, another is projecting and selling sustainable homes, while a third has developed a completely new and patented method for floating wind power. Capitalization will enable us to enter these companies and also follow-up investments in our existing companies.

Reliefed Technologies receives funding from the Swedish Energy Agency

 

Funding from the Swedish Energy Agency granted for 3D-iExtrusion® projects enabling energy-efficient products/systems and production in new market segments. Press release in English:  https://lnkd.in/gBdMacW ...

Energimyndigheten har beviljat stöd på upp till 2,9 miljoner kronor till Reliefed Technologies för projekt avsett att främja kommersialiseringen i nya industrisegment av bolagets patenterade 3D-teknik - 3D-iExtrusion® för energieffektivare produktion och produkter.

Reliefed Technologies och bolagets patenterade 3D-iExtrusion® möjliggör nya design- och produktutvecklingslösningar samt kostnads- och energieffektiv 3D-massproduktion för produkter och applikationer. Möjligheten att utveckla energioptimerade 3D komponenter samtidigt som energi och materialanvändning reduceras i produktionsprocessen är parametrar som fått Energimyndigheten att bevilja stöd till Reliefed.

Stödet på 2,9 miljoner kronor kommer bland annat användas i projekt för utveckling, simulering, produktion och provning av komponenter för energieffektivisering av fasad- och fönstersystem, vilket öppnar för en mycket stor global marknad i både kalla och varma klimat, samt för att påvisa materialbesparingar och rena energibesparingar i produktion vid användning av 3D-iExtrusion® i relation till konventionella tillverkningsmetoder.

"Våra kunder och marknaden efterfrågar nya sätt och lösningar för att möta krav med avseende på designfrihet samt kostnads- och energieffektiv massproduktion. Stödet från Energimyndigheten möjliggör att vi ytterligare kan påvisa och verifiera just dessa möjligheter och värden som vår 3D-teknik ger, inte minst ur produktivitets och energiperspektiv", säger Mikael Eklund, vd på Reliefed.

RVN has acquired 3.3% of the Solar Installation Company, Soliga Energi AB.

RVN has acquired 3.3% of Soliga Energi AB. The company operates in the solar sector from its base in Karlstad, western Sweden. Soliga Energi AB offers installation of turnkey production units for solar electricity. The customers are both corporate and domestic customers, and the systems are offered on direct sale or for for leasing. The company originates from the Glava solar power plant in Värmland, and also have connections to the strong Norwegian solar industry. After having operating only one year, several successful projects have already been completed. We see good opportunities that Soliga will take a huge part of the rapidly growing market for photovoltaics in Sweden.

RVN har förvärvat 3,3% av Soliga Energi A. Bolaget verkar inom solenergisektorn och är baserat i Karlstad. Soliga Energi AB erbjuder installation av nyckelfärdig solel till såväl företags- som hushållskunder, antingen via leasing eller direktköp. Bolaget har sitt ursprung i från Glava solcellsfabrik i Arvika, och har därmed även kopplingar till den starka norska solindustrimiljön. Efter ett knappt års verksamhet har man redan ett flertal genomförda projekt och vi ser goda möjligheter att de kommer ta för sig en rejäl bit av den kraftigt växande solcellsmarknaden i Sverige.

RVN invests in Ecoetanol AB -Peas On Earth

We are investing in Etanol at Sweden AB. The company manufactures patented production equipment for processing leguminous plant through so-called wet threshing. The output is primarily ethanol and protein for replacing soy bean source protein. http://www.peasonearth.se

RVN har i veckan investerat i ett nytt spännande bolag, Ecoetanol AB. Bolaget tillhandahåller en patenterad produktionsutrustning för att processa baljväxter, främst åkerböna, genom så kallad våt-tröskning. Som slutprodukt erhålls framför allt protein, där Sverige idag importerar stora mängder från soja men med den nya metoden kan ha potential att bli självförsörjande. Metoden ger också etanol, koldioxid och djurfoder. Andra fördelar är att bonden kan skörda tidigare, vilket ger utrymme för höstsådd av vete samt större skörd pga växtföljden.  Se mer information på www.peasonearth.se

 

RVN portfolio company signs agreement with Bzzt Podtaxi

RVN Portfolio company Mindconnect helps Bzzt become smartest in town

Mindconnect, together with Bzzt, has signed a collaboration agreement that will make Bzzt faster and more efficient. The agreement will allow more trips with a faster pick up and shorter travel time for the customers. At the same time they are using the city’s limited space in a better way.

Best possible route every day

In addition to keeping track of traffic flow in cities, Mindconnect offers tailored map and navigation services that are easy to adapt to local needs and the trend towards smart cities. Bzzt is an exciting customer from this perspective. The taxi pods are powered by electricity and require, for example, travel times that take into account the maximum speed of 45 km/h.

“As we grow, the need to become even smarter increases the way we use the fleet. Cooperation with Mindconnect will provide us with better route planning and make us both faster and more efficient in the Stockholm traffic. It will benefit both customers and the city”, says Sven Wolf, CEO at Bzzt.

“Bzzt is a dream customer for us. Bzzt has all components of the future’s environmentally-friendly transportation and requires configurable maps and vehicle-specific services. With our CityFlow technology platform, we have the unique opportunity to meet the requirements today, in order for Bzzt to be able to guide their fleet in an optimal way. Together we further develop our businesses”, says Jonas Bohman, CEO at Mindconnect.

Mindconnect ska hjälpa Bzzt att bli smartast i stan

Mindconnect och Bzzt har tecknat avtal om samarbete som ska göra Bzzt snabbare och effektivare. Så att Bzzt kan köra ännu fler resor, hämta upp och köra kunder snabbare, och använda stadens begränsade utrymme på ett bättre sätt.

Bästa möjliga rutt varje dag

Förutom att hålla koll på hur fordonstrafiken flyter i städer, erbjuder Mindconnect skräddarsydda kart- och navigationstjänster som är enkla att anpassa till lokala behov och utvecklingen mot smarta städer. Bzzt är en spännande kund ur detta perspektiv. Taxi-podarna är eldrivna och behöver till exempel få restider som tar hänsyn till max hastigheten 45km/tim.

”I takt med att vi växer ökar behovet av att bli ännu smartare med hur vi använder fordonsflottan. Samarbetet med Mindconnect kommer att ge oss bättre ruttplanering och göra oss både snabbare och mer effektiva i Stockholmstrafiken. Det vinner både kunderna och staden på”, säger Sven Wolf på Bzzt.

“Bzzt är en drömkund för oss. Bzzt har alla komponenter av framtidens miljöriktiga transporter och behöver konfigurerbara kartor och fordonsspecifika tjänster. Med vår teknikplattform CityFlow besitter vi den unika möjligheten att tillgodose det behovet idag, för att Bzzt skall kunna guida sin fordonsflotta optimalt. Tillsammans vidareutvecklar vi varandras affärer”, säger Jonas Bohman på Mindconnect.
