Dutch Tech-startup Cohere raises €300.000,- investment

And announces launch of Home Energy Manager 

Today, the Amsterdam based Tech-startup Cohere Energy Solutions, announced that it has raised €300.000,- from investors. With this investment, Cohere is able to further expand and focus on the development of their product Maxem® – the Energy Manager that makes electric cars and homes 100% sustainable. The first pilots with the fourth generation of the Energy Manager started last month. 


With this fourth generation, Cohere focuses on a broader market. In addition to the original smart-charging for electric cars, the innovative system allows the home owner to transform his house into a completely sustainable grid. The micro-computer - installed in the meter cabinet - measures and controls all energy systems in the house. The electric car, solar panels, heat pump and home battery are all connected to one another, creating a local smart grid. This way, home owners are always able to make optimal use of their own renewable energy and run a sustainable household.


Earlier this month, Cohere already launched a new website for Maxem® – www.maxem.io.

"Our goal is to make every home and every electric car 100% sustainable. This investment will help us realize that vision."

Jan Willem Heinen, CEO Cohere

About Cohere Energy Solutions

Cohere gelooft in een toekomst waarin fossiele brandstoffen overbodig zijn. Elektrische auto's zijn dan ook niet het einddoel, maar slechts het begin. Daarom heeft Cohere Maxem® ontwikkeld - een Energy Manager die de elektrische auto sneller en goedkoper oplaadt en het huis omtovert tot een complete, duurzame smart grid. Maxem® verbindt de elektrische auto, de zonnepanelen, de warmtebuffer en de stationaire batterij. Zo wordt het huis van de toekomst onafhankelijk van grote energieleveranciers en maken huiseigenaren altijd gemakkelijker en goedkoper gebruik van duurzame energie.

Ieder huis 100% duurzaam - dat is het doel.
