Stockholm-based sustainable lithium-ion battery maker Northvolt this morning announced the signing of a $1.1 billion convertible note, almost exactly a year after announcing $2.75 billion in equity funding.
The company points out it has now secured close to $8 billion in equity and debt to deliver on its plans to "establish a supply of sustainable batteries to enable the decarbonization of society".
Northvolt produced its first battery cell at its Sweden-based gigafactory just before 2021 turned into 2022, and made the first commercial deliveries from the factory during spring of this year.
Peter Carlsson, Co-Founder and CEO of Northvolt, commented: “We are proud and thankful for the support and trust from these world-class investors and partners. We will continue to work hard to deliver on the promise we have made to them to build the world’s greenest battery.”
