About Smart Grid

Smart Grid offers energy storage systems for industrial and mobile applications, based on the principles of Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, flow batteries or chemical and liquid energy storage solutions. In addition, Smart Grid offers modules that can interface via smart technologies from the different energy storage systems to the different end-user applications. Through a unique and flexible design, Smart Grid has brought the technology to its robust, modular and scalable products. The systems are applied in various applications and markets. This can vary from a few kW per hour to several MW per hour, supplied both as standard container solutions and as customer-specific solutions.

Smart Grid’s design makes it possible to make an autonomous link with clean energy production (solar or wind) and existing electricity networks in a simple way, in order to supply energy on AC and DC in the various application areas via (temporary) storage. Through our in-house developed software and thorough system integration set-up, our customers can use the energy systems for, among other things, energy trading, peak shaving, load balancing, DC and AC micro grid, and back-up power (UPS).

The mission of Koolen Industries is to enable everyone to contribute to and participate in the energy transition. Generating clean energy from wind and the sun, and developing solutions that store, transport and deliver this energy, we provide consumers with an autonomous life, independent of the grid.


Koolen Industries Solar (previously Energy Experience Group) consists of a group of companies within the solar energy sector. Koolen Industries Solar installs about 75.000 solar panels per year on consumer homes and company buildings. At the moment, Koolen Industries Solar consists of six companies: BonGo Solar, NovaVolt, BeSolar, BonGo Solar Projects, Duurzaam Besparen and Koolen Installation Services.


Super B develops and produces advanced lithium batteries. Super B batteries offer huge energy reserves, weigh substantially less, are easy to install and will last considerably longer than other batteries. They allow fast charging and high discharging rates and are built with the best battery cells. They consist of the safest Lithium chemistry: Lithium Iron Phosphate. Our in-house developed Battery Management System protects the battery in all situations.

GreenBattery stores sustainable energy in mobile battery systems. These are used on sites with no or insufficient grid connection as an alternative to diesel generators. The zero-emissions battery systems are quiet, very reliable and available in a wide power range. Besides replacing diesel generators the GreenBattery systems are also used as emergency power units (UPS) or to balance the local energy grid when there is insufficient capacity to meet temporary spikes in demand for power.

Proton Ventures is a technology company that works to make the global energy transition a reality. The company specialises in ammonia related technologies and products, including storage concepts for chemical and liquid energy carriers. Proton Ventures designs and builds pressurised and cooled ammonia storage facilities, as well as small scale ammonia factories called NFuel units.

Floading is a service provider specialized in smart charging solutions for electric cars, buses, trucks and virtually any vehicle using a battery. With over 10 years experience we bridge the gap between the complexity in the OEM-industry and the specialized knowledge of the public and private charging infrastructure.

Elestor offers electricity storage systems for stationary industrial applications, based on the Hydrogen Bromine Flow Battery principle. With a unique and patented design, Elestor matured flow battery technology into a robust and highly scalable product, featuring storage costs per MWh far beyond what is achieved with conventional batteries.


Kraftblock is a cleantech company that develops high-performance thermal storage-systems to decarbonise industry and to store and use excess energy from renewable sources. The modular, container-based high-temperature systems can be used either as mobile energy storage, or they can be staged as large-scale stationary storage of energy. The outstanding performance is based on the proprietary storage material that can absorb up to 1,300°C, store up to 1.2MWh per m3 and perform more than 15,000 cycles without any performance losses.

Aziobot is a robotics startup that develops the simplest cleaning robots for businesses, using advanced AI software. Their main focus has been on making autonomous technology available to business owners in its simplest form, as simple as operating a smartphone. Aziobot wants to make autonomous technology available in every industry and thereby making day to day operations both more simpler and efficient.

The hyperloop is a new mode of transportation for passengers and cargo. Vehicles move through low pressure tubes which creates the ideal conditions for fast and energy efficient travel, with speeds over 1000 km/hr and zero emissions. Hardt Hyperloop is the leading company in the development, implementation and standardisation of hyperloop in Europe and emerged from Elon Musk’s winning hyperloop team.


EIT InnoEnergy is the innovation engine for sustainable energy across Europe. They support and invest in innovation at every stage of the journey – from classroom to end-customer. With their network of partners, they build connections across Europe, bringing together inventors and industry, graduates and employers, researchers and entrepreneurs, businesses and markets.


Skoon is a unique online battery sharing platform that facilitates the use of mobile batteries and other types of clean mobile energy. On this accessible marketplace, companies either offer or book their clean energy storage. By automating all operational logistics and other time consuming processes, the platform provides easy access to clean energy for festivals, events, construction sites, film sets, ships and many more applications.
