Clean Power is delighted to announce that we have been selected to participate in the Shell/EPRI Low Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator (LCHA), the prestigious Greentown Go 2022 programme designed to support SMEs developing game changing innovations across low-carbon hydrogen production, storage and distribution.
Clean Power was selected on the basis of its novel, low-cost, highly durable hydrogen polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell to deliver zero-emission electricity for stationary power applications, especially in challenging operating environments.
Clean Power was one of only seven participants, and the sole British participant, selected from 88 applications from 18 countries in a highly competitive judging and selection process. This six month, highly structured accelerator programme offers Clean Power valuable collaboration and engagement opportunities with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), its member utilities, and Shell on technology validation, feasibility studies, paid pilot demonstrations, and other development and commercial partnerships.
Greentown is the largest startup incubator in North America, headquartered in Somerville, Mass, with a second incubator in Houston, Texas; the Urban Future Lab (UFL) is New York City's longest-running cleantech startup incubator. Clean Power looks forward to accessing their industry expertise, incubation space, network of experts and decades of experience supporting climatetech startups.
Nick Avis, CEO of Clean Power notes, “This is great opportunity to work with Shell, EPRI, Greentown and Urban Future Lab to demonstrate our technology to partners and further refine our business proposition. We look forward to meeting and hopefully collaborating with the other exciting SMEs chosen as participants on the programme later this month at the inaugural meeting in Somerville, MA.”
