Azelio is a technology company that offers a Stirling-based solar electricity with thermal energy storage system that enables distributed power generation around the clock at a competitive price. The company has its head office in Gothenburg with production in Uddevalla and development center in Gothenburg and Åmål, as well as sales offices in Beijing and representation offices in Madrid. As of 30 September 2018, the company had 75 employees. In 2018-2020, the Company will focus on the industrialization of system design, design and production. During the fourth quarter of 2019, three systems in a verification project will be installed in Morocco together with state-owned MAS, after which volume production is expected from 2021. The technology is well suited for areas that today lack access to a power grid or have no reliable power grids. The company estimates that Azelio's solution can be used to accelerate the roll-out of electricity to the approximately one billion people in the sun belt, which today lack access to reliable electricity.
