The round was led by Révolution Environnementale et Solidaire, a fund managed by Crédit Mutuel Impact, with contributions from Sweetch Energy’s historical investors and industrial partners. This funding will enable Sweetch Energy to finalise its INOD® technology, which creates clean electricity, and intends to also expand the future prospects of its research and development activities.
