Azelio was born from the conviction that the future can be powered by solar energy. Determined to break down the last barrier we have relentlessly worked to find an economically attractive and sustainable way of storing solar energy so that it can be tapped when and where it's needed.
How come a small company from Sweden can find a solution to one of the world’s greatest energy challenges? It’s obviously due to many different factors, but the most important one is undoubtedly: The people.
The management team at Azelio has been evolving and perfecting the Stirling engine technology for some 25 years. And we have recruited our core competences from the Nordic automotive and aerospace clusters as well as from the international research community. Personal commitment and a genuine wish to shape the future of sustainable energy, builds a team spirit that makes remarkable results.
It really doesn’t matter if you are a dedicated service technician on the factory floor, or the former Swedish minister of finance on our blue-chip level board, everyone plays an equally important part in Azelio’s way forward.
