HOW WE CAN HELP

Sector Diversity

Recruit startups from various sectors including: clean energy generation, smart grid, energy efficiency and management, IoT and digitization, energy access and e-mobility. Corporate participants can provide preferences for sub sectors ahead of the start of the program.

Technology Trends

Immerse in new technology trends through close collaboration with startups and other energy companies.

Peer Learning

Learn energy innovation from leading VC and innovation peers from around the world. Peer learning stood out as one of the key advantages in our previous programs.

Deal Flow

A non-exclusive approach to signing deals and commercial agreements. For example, in our previous program one startup signed deals with all participating companies. This approach allows more deal flow to happen effectively allowing you to get more ‘bang for your buck.’

We’re replacing hundreds of hours of duplicative work with one streamlined program. We expected to prove the value of the program with dealflow, but the peer-to-peer learning and co-investing really came out as just as important to our utility partners. Most importantly, we are excited about taking the most successful corporate-startup program in the world and opening it up to others.
