Sylfen won the Le Monde Smart Cities competition International Award in Singapore on June 2, shortly after receiving the European Innovation Award for the Energy Category of the same competition in April. The awards will help raise the growing company’s profile.
Based in Grenoble at the MINATEC High-tech Building, the startup, which holds licenses to 22 Liten patents, has developed a system to store energy as hydrogen and make it available on demand. The company is currently working on a prototype of its Smart Energy Hub; Liten is working on the reversible electrolyzer and Sylfen is handling the rest (the battery, power electronics, integration, hydrogen compression, and management software). Sylfen currently employs six people and plans to hire fifteen more to support growth.
