Hysata Raises $111M to Enhance Green Hydrogen Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness

In a significant boost to green hydrogen technology, Australian company Hysata recently announced a substantial capital raise of $111 million USD, co-led by bp Ventures and Templewater in a Series B funding round.

This infusion of capital underlines the growing confidence in Hysata's revolutionary electrolyser technology, which promises to make green hydrogen production both more efficient and cost-effective.

About Hysata

Hysata is pioneering the development of a new type of electrolyser technology, which integrates one of the world's most efficient electrolysis cells with a simplified balance of plant.

Given that electricity costs constitute the bulk of green hydrogen production, Hysata's focus on high-efficiency electrolysers aims to deliver hydrogen at a lower cost.

With a team that includes top talent from leading global companies such as Apple, Tesla, BHP, and McKinsey, Hysata is rapidly expanding.

The company plans to grow its workforce significantly, aiming to more than double its current staff count of 75 to over 200 within the next few years, spreading its operations across multiple continents.

As Hysata moves towards multi-gigawatt scale manufacturing, its technological advancements could be a turning point in reducing global emissions and achieving a net-zero future.

The backing by leading global investors underscores the potential of Hysata’s technology to transform the energy landscape, making green hydrogen a cornerstone of the sustainable energy ecosystem.

Funding Round

The recent funding round included a mix of both returning and new investors, highlighting the broad-based support for Hysata's technology.

Long-standing backers such as IP Group Australia, Kiko Ventures, and Virescent Ventures reaffirmed their commitment, while new strategic partners like POSCO Holdings and Shinhan Financial Group have joined the fold, recognizing the potential of Hysata’s technology to disrupt the energy sector.

This financial injection will allow Hysata to expand its operations, particularly at its iconic beachside manufacturing facility in Wollongong, Australia.

The company aims to scale up its production capabilities to gigawatt levels, further advancing its technology in preparation for widespread commercial deployment.
