Fluence, a global battery storage joint venture of Siemens AG and AES Corp., said it reached an agreement with the sovereign wealth fund of Qatar for a $125 million investment.

The funding will give the Qatar Investment Authority a 12% stake in Fluence and values the battery company at more than $1 billion, the companies said Wednesday in a joint statement. Siemens and AES will retain a 44% stake each following completion of the deal, the companies said.
