Stina Announces Strategic Investment in Braggawatt USA for Distributed Energy Solutions to Empower Efficient CellCube Adoption for It’s Customers
May 2, 2018 --Toronto, ON – Stina Resources Ltd. (“Stina” or the “Company”) (CSE: SQA) (OTCQB: STNUF) (Frankfurt: 01X) is pleased to announce a strategic relationship with, and US $1.95 million investment in, Braggawatt Energy Inc. (“Braggawatt”). Braggawatt provides financing through an online platform that allows corporations and not-for-profit organizations to effectively adopt cost saving onsite energy solutions.
This investment will allow Stina and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Enerox GmbH, to capitalize on quickly expanding market opportunities for enabling enterprise customers’ effective adoption of cost-saving onsite energy solutions.
Enerox is one of the world's first and largest researchers, developers, manufacturers and distributors of vanadium flow batteries. As an industry leader in the energy storage sector, it has installed CellCube vanadium flow batteries at over 100 sites around the world.
As energy storage deployments continue to rapidly increase globally, Stina is committed to making strategic investments to further its commercial advantages as a global, integrated energy storage company for both customer-sided and utility scale energy storage applications.
“The CellCube is globally recognized as a commercially superior energy storage solution and we are excited to be working closely with the team at Stina/Enerox to help remove many of the perceived project risks through custom financing products. Our online process and growing network of installation partners will also help remove transactional soft costs, which are often key factors in preventing distributed energy storage projects from moving forward,” said Oleg Popovsky, Braggawatt’s Chief Customer Officer.
“We are transforming how distributed energy projects are originated, underwritten, financed, and implemented by empowering systems integrators, end-customers and asset investors as well as now product manufacturers to collaborate via our online platform," added Trey Ramsey, Braggawatt’s CEO.
“Our investment in Braggawatt as an innovative fintech company for distributed energy solutions complements our vision for Stina to be a fully integrated energy storage company. With our end-to- end business approach, we are bringing about the next evolution in the way energy storage will be
integrated in demand-side and distributed generation power infrastructure alike,” says Brian Stecyk, President and CEO of Stina.
“Stina is very pleased to invest in Braggawatt. Both companies will work together to develop unique finance products for our CellCube energy storage solutions. Our working relationship will help accelerate the adoption of high quality energy storage systems across many markets where enterprise and independent power generation customers can benefit from demand response, microgrid, and grid ancillary/capacity applications to secure energy cost savings and pursue new revenue opportunities,” commented Stefan Schauss, President and CEO of Enerox.
