    Sunstone Systems Raises £1m in Equity Finance to Fund Next Stage of Growth

    British technology company to use the investment to fuel recruitment drive, international expansion, and new product development

    London, UK: 11 October 2022: British technology company, Sunstone Systems, has raised £1m in equity finance in its latest funding round.

    Based in Kent, Sunstone Systems creates solar-powered technologies that provide surveillance, wireless networks, and satellite communications to some of the most remote locations in the world. All while helping global organisations to reduce their CO2 emissions. This fundraise comes off the back of a stellar period of growth which saw it double year-on-year revenue in 2021, with projections to do the same in 2022.

    Aaron David, CFO, of Sunstone Systems said:

    “A number of factors have seen demand for our products scale considerably over the last two years. The need to have power in critical and remote locations without reliance on fossil fuels is growing more acute by the day. It’s why we see this latest fundraise as just the start of another period of exceptional growth.”

    Sunstone Systems has recently made a number of key appointments across its engineering, design, sales, and operations teams, and it is actively recruiting for further positions. The company has also acquired a number of new and high-profile clients including; WJ Group, Mitie, Johnson Controls, and Rivian Automotive as well as bringing its latest innovation to market – the ARC Generator – capable of delivering off-grid power for a wide range of stationary and mobile applications, including surveillance, telecommunications, and edge computing.

    According to ReportLinker, the global solar power equipment market size is expected to reach over $200bn by 2027 driven by a number of factors, including rising global warming, increased awareness of renewables, and fuel cost reduction. Indeed, increasing the UK’s reliance on solar power was a key component of the British energy security strategy, which was updated and published earlier this year.

    The latest fundraiser will fuel the next phase of growth for the company. One that will see Sunstone Systems develop new products, as well as enable the company to expand into key markets, particularly Europe and America. It follows an extensive period of growth for the company in the last 18 months.

    David concluded:

    “The UK has an extremely ambitious net zero programme, and we want to play a key part in making it happen. For us, this means developing world-leading, renewable energy-powered equipment to help industrial operations take simple steps to reduce their carbon footprint in their day-to-day activities.”

    Sunstone’s award-winning products have been deployed around the world for a number of years providing everything from wireless networks and solar-powered surveillance in Kazakhstan oil fields to Highway monitoring around the U.K
