Metris Energy Shines Bright with £2M Pre-Seed Funding to Power Up UK Solar

Metris Energy, a London-based startup using AI to illuminate the path to solar power for commercial property owners, has secured £2 million in pre-seed funding. This investment, led by Octopus Ventures and Aenu VC, fuels Metris’ mission to transform the UK’s £22 billion solar energy market.

Sun-Powered Platform for Business:

Metris’ innovative platform empowers commercial property owners to unlock the hidden potential of their rooftops. It’s a one-stop solar shop, offering:

  • Portfolio Assessment: AI analyzes rooftops, generating detailed reports on solar potential and financial benefits.
  • CFO-Friendly Business Case: Metris calculates the financial impact of solar adoption, making it easy for decision-makers to see the return on investment.
  • Tenant Energy Deals: Forget paperwork! Metris digitizes and automates contracts, simplifying tenant agreements and ensuring smooth energy transitions.
  • Hands-Free Management: Metris handles the entire process, from installation to maintenance, allowing property owners to focus on their core business while reaping the benefits of solar revenue.

AI Ignites Speed and Efficiency:

Traditional solar assessments can take days, but Metris’ AI cuts that time to minutes. This lightning-fast approach, coupled with automated contract management, eliminates administrative headaches and accelerates the path to solar adoption.

Funding Fuels Growth:

“This funding is a game-changer,” says Natasha Jones, co-founder of Metris. “It allows us to launch our platform across the UK, helping businesses unlock the immense potential of solar energy and contribute to a greener future.”

With this investment, Metris plans to expand its team, refine its platform, and build strategic partnerships to reach a wider audience of commercial property owners.
