A new startup, Quino Energy, aims to bring to market a grid-scale energy storage solution developed by Harvard researchers to facilitate more widespread adoption of renewable energy sources.
Quaise Energy announced today that it expanded its Series A financing round from $40M to $52M. The $12M incremental round was led by TechEnergy Ventures, the Corporate Venture Capital group within the Energy Transition Division of Tecpetrol, which is a part of the Techint Group.
Jorge Dimópulos, Strategic Planning Director in the Energy Transition Unit for Tecpetrol, offers insights on the outcome of the highly anticipated gathering of global leaders in Glasgow, Scotland, to address the world’s climate concerns, and hones in on developments important to the Techint Group’s decarbonization agenda.
Stefano Maggiolino, CEO of Tenova HYL, and Fernando Caracoche, Director of Engineering Department in Ternium, shared their conference experience and highlighted the new scenario that opens for Group companies.
A stronger team
Our +diversity program aims to empower women to fulfill their talent and potential, and reaffirms our commitment to equal opportunities. Today, 42% of Tecpetrol's young professionals are women. Our objective is to develop this seedbed so that they can grow and add value from leadership roles.
The program embraces broader issues, as it tackles diversity from all angles capable of adding value to the business. It seeks to raise awareness about biases that limit the growth and contribution of certain groups of people within the organization, and to create tools to help everyone to develop as fully as possible in each area of their lives.
