Case Study

Ikigai AXL plays a fundamental role within the wider group as it enables new but tested technologies to be part of the solutions for both Ikigai Capital and Ikigai Energy. Whilst acting independently, the advisory side and the development side rely on Ikigai AXL as a source of new solutions to the decarbonisation process. In turns, Ikigai AXL benefits from the strong commercial approach and deployment opportunities from the other companies. So far we have supported a Carbon Capture company and a second-life battery companies to raise money and create a bankable product for long term investors, thus creating the basis for large scale commercialisation and growth
