Charged EVs | Maritime battery supplier Corvus Energy receives investment from Toyota’s Woven Capital


Norway-headquartered Corvus Energy, a supplier of lithium-ion battery storage and hydrogen PEM fuel cell systems to the maritime industry, has secured an investment from Toyota’s growth fund, Woven Capital. 

The funding will be used for product development and geographic expansion. Corvus’s other leading investors include BW Group, Equinor Ventures, Hydro and Shell Ventures.

More than half of the world`s vessels with zero-emission technology are equipped with Corvus Energy systems, according to the company. The investment will provide Corvus with more access to Toyota’s expertise in fuel cells and battery technology.
