Energy storage technology provider Fluence is pursuing an IPO and has filed a Form S-1 with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 

If successful, Fluence’s Class A common stock will list on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol FLNC, while the number of shares and price range are yet to be determined. 

The Arlington, Virginia-headquartered company officially launched in 2018 as a joint venture of German engineering company Siemens and US electric power company AES Corporation and released its sixth generation of battery storage system solution products last year. 

Rapidly becoming a leader in the grid-scale storage space through combining the experience and product knowhow of the two companies’ existing energy storage businesses, Fluence claims to now have over 3.4GW of energy storage deployed or under contract in 29 different global markets. 

It has also diversified into renewable energy and storage asset optimisation and management in the key markets of Australia and California, partly based on the recent acquisition of the digital energy management platforms of Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS). 

A recent US$125 million investment from sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority valued Fluence at more than a billion dollars

Lead book-running managers for the proposed IPO will be JP Morgan Securities, Morgan Stanley & Co, Barclays Capital and BofA Securities. Joint book-running managers include Citigroup Global Markets, Credit Suisse, UBS and others, while co-managers include Nomura Securities, Robert W Baird & Co and others.
