Reasons to Invest

Battery Energy Storage System Market Size is projected to reach USD 6.9 Billion by 2025 - a 4.7 Billion jump since 2019. Because our systems can be scaled to meet any consumer or commercial power needs, much of the market is in our grasp.
The growing renewable energy sector, which increases the need for energy storage, is expected to promulgate the market.
The demand for uninterrupted power is expected to rise exponentially in the coming years due to continuous population growth, infrastructure development, rapid industrialization, and ever-increasing environmental volatility.

Overview


Meet Blue Sky Energy - Bringing You Clean, Safe Energy Storage

When thinking of energy conservation, solar power is often the first thing that comes to mind. But with the reality and unpredictability of climate change - we can’t always expect the sun to do the work on its own.

That’s where energy storage comes in, with BlueSky Energy as your leading, sustainable force. We create safe and reliable power storage systems to maximize the capture and re-use of renewable energy sources with a focus on minimizing environmental impact.

Clean Energy Storage for Clean Energy

The Problem


Climate Change is Happening

And while the current renewable energy sector is doing all it can, we are still all being affected. 


Within that sector, you need energy storage: AKA batteries. Batteries store your renewable energy so you can use it when you need it - without being affected by changing weather conditions. 

While the battery industry is solving some problems in renewable energy, it's also contributing to others by using scarce, expensive, and sometimes harmful materials like cobalt. We believe there aren't enough energy solutions that provide people with clean, safe, reliable alternatives to these products.

The Solution


Harmless Batteries for You and the Planet

We wanted to provide solutions to battery storage that were better both for the consumer and the environment.


We do this in two ways…

  1. The Saltwater Battery: totally green, endurance-based battery
  2.  VIGOS: a power-based solution with twice the lifespan of other batteries, free from harmful mining practices like those required with cobalt

The Market


A Green Market Only Getting Greener 

Battery Energy Storage System Market Size is projected to reach USD 6.9 Billion (source) by 2025 - that’s more than three times the size it was in 2019.  


With declining prices of lithium-ion batteries, and increased demand for uninterrupted power supplies, the North American energy storage market alone is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 46.35% (source) during the same forecast period. 

Also, the growing renewable energy sector, which accelerates the need for energy storage, is expected to propagate that market.

Our Traction


Our Milestones

Here’s a timeline of some of our recent successes, and upcoming ones:

  • In 2017 we sold our first Greenrock Saltwater Plug & Play system, and now we have installed over 500 systems around the world (source)


  •  In 2019, we began selling power systems in North America with a formal expansion into our US headquarters in 2020.


  • In Jan. 2021, Austria shipped the first VIGOS, installing 3 All-Weather Systems across Europe. This product will be available to us in the United States in Q2 of 2021, and is already gaining traction within our consumer population.


  • By Q2 of 2021, we expect a third flagship product, CEL3050, will be released and is a smaller version of VIGOS 

gif

What We Do


Green Energy Storage to Meet Your Needs 

From small homeowners to large industrial conglomerates - it’s important to us to learn about our customers' varying needs. 


That’s why we designed systems using our product range of high-powered VIGOS or endurance-based Saltwater batteries, and integrate them with various fabricated or off-the-shelf parts such as inverters, controllers, cables, and battery management systems. 

gif

Additional Battery Specifications:


The Saltwater Battery: 

  • 100% renewable, safe and made from abundant materials. 
  • No harmful mining practices, no extraction of rare-earth materials
  • Toxic-free, with no special shipping or handling required  (highly uncommon in the energy storage industry)

Vigos Battery:  

  • Made from LTO (Lithium Titanate Oxide)

  • A safe, non-flammable, non-explosive Lithium-based product without Cobalt

  • Lasts twice as long as NMC and LFP Lithium technologies 

  • Operates in a much wider temperature range of -30C to +50C (source)

The Business Model


Organic Means to Organic Success

Like our product, our sales process will evolve in the coming years - keeping up with the growth of renewable energy and all of its subsequent demand.


With our current systems sold for $15K-$100K each, we’ve had organic, successful traction mainly reaching customers through referral or word of mouth. Our on-the-ground approach has been widely successful. In our first year in the US, we reached USD $370k of revenue with minimal marketing and outreach efforts, and our parent company earned an additional EUR $3M in 2020.

gif

How We Are Different


In a League of Our Own

Our industry and competitors predominantly use NMC and LFP technology, meaning they are made up of Lithium-phosphate or Lithium, Manganese, and Cobalt as cathode materials. We stand in a unique position, as our technology is none of those.

gif

We offer similar solutions as other major players, just in a greener, safer, and more sustainable form. We believe we are the only company to build a system that meets the Living Building Challenge standards for energy storage - architecture's greenest energy standard.

The Vision


The Future of Green Power

We aim to offer one-of-a-kind energy storage solutions that are safe, clean, efficient, and reliable. And we’re at the cusp of major growth, innovation, and development.

Where we are heading:

  • Acquiring a large network of installers to reduce internal costs
  •  Bidding on larger, industrial-sized projects, expanding production to the US in Idaho, and a future site in Canada, allowing us to scale exponentially
  • Employing local workforces from skilled engineers to production teams, and everyone in between

OUR LEADERSHIP


Leaders Across the Globe

In 2012, our parent company, BlueSky Energy Gmbh, was founded in Frankenburg, Austria by Hansjoerg Weisskopf.


After a successful career in high-tech contract manufacturing, Hansjoerg saw the need for energy storage as a required enabler for the growing renewable energy market.


Since then, Blue Sky has built its foundation on a bedrock of strong leadership spanning between the US and Europe. From Austria to Idaho, between all Blue Sky entities, we have 65 employees forging ahead with one collective vision. 

Hansjoerg Weisskopf - Founder & Chairman of the Board 

Lyle Gold - CEO & Founder 

Thomas Krausse - CFO / CEO 

Christian Trucco - Director of Applications Engineering and Product Management 

Why Invest


Storage is the Next Frontier of Renewable Energy 

Blue Sky is a growing business in a booming niche. We hold ourselves and our products to the highest standards and believe we are pioneers in the changing scope of the energy industry.

Energy storage is the next frontier and will be a critical component in the renewable energy sphere.

The 10% StartEngine Owners' Bonus

Blue Sky Energy will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of common stock at $3.08 / share, you will receive 110 shares of common stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $308. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are cancelled or fail.

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

The Company will not incur any irregular use of proceeds.
