Deeya's product will help telecom tower firms save billions of dollars in diesel fuel costs, said Ira Ehrenpreis, general partner at Technology Partners, in a statement. The firms power solutions are also renewable, recyclable, and non-toxic.

“We were attracted to Deeya as an early investment opportunity because it addresses all three primary energy storage markets: backup, renewable storage, and grid storage. We also saw from our experience in wireless and telecommunications that power infrastructure was a real limitation for wireless telecom growth,” said Sujit Banerjee, partner at BlueRun Ventures, in the statement.
