The ancient Greeks’ name for amber was ἤλεκτρον (ēlektron), perhaps adopted from a Phoenician word meaning “shining light”. Amber’s ability to hold a static charge led to the Latin adjective electricus (“of amber”) which transformed into the modern-day terms electric and electricity.

By returning to the roots of where the energy journey began, Amber Energy represents the full circle of sustainable, recyclable, energy storage technologies.

Amber Energy is a collaboration between three established European companies
