With COP26 just around the corner, the Net Zero Technology Centre has today (Sept 20) launched the first round of its Clean Energy Start-up pitch battle which includes companies promoting hydrogen solutions.
Hosted by the Centre’s TechX team, 29 technology start-ups have submitted pitches and are now subject to public votes.
The ten finalists will then be given the opportunity to pitch the technologies at the final event that will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, during the Centre’s COP26 programme.
The startup pitches feature a range of technologies from both blue and green hydrogen solutions, CCUS and digitisation to alternative energy storage.
By providing a wider platform to showcase the companies’ technologies, it is hoped that the groups will receive support which can then be used to accelerate the development of the unique, low-emission solutions.
Mark Anderson, Director of TechX, said, “This November, world leaders and government negotiators will attend COP26 in Glasgow. This is an opportunity for innovators to embrace the challenge of climate change, for start-ups developing clean energy technologies to take to the stage and pitch their innovations to make a difference.
“During COP26, TechX is bringing together some of the most exciting start-ups from around the world to take part in a Clean Energy Start-up Pitch Battle, which will shine a light on 29 early-stage technology companies.
“Each one has the potential to drive significant emission reductions, accelerating the transition to net zero.
“The Pitch Battle is an opportunity for investors, industry players and policy-makers to show support for some of the most innovative companies on the planet.”
