Sunamp designs and manufactures space-saving thermal storage using patented Phase Change Material (PCM) to make homes and buildings more energy efficient and sustainable, while reducing carbon emissions. Our batteries can be charged with energy from renewable and other sources, and released to deliver hot water, cooling and space heating on demand across different temperature ranges.

Our manufacturing is scaling up. By being part of the Industrial Robots-as-a-Service (IRaaS) project, we see that trialling robotic solutions would benefit the automation of our current and, any future, licensed factories. We aim to contribute with use cases for IRaaS feasibility projects, based on our own experience of manufacturing new products, and join appropriate advisory or project groups.
