NanoSUN has been named as one of two winners of Shell’s New Energy Challenge.
The UK company was named ‘best start-up’ for the low-cost hydrogen refueler it has developed.
NanoSUN’s technology has the potential to eliminate 60-80% of the cost of conventional hydrogen refuelling, enabling rapid expansion of hydrogen refuelling stations.
The company will receive at least €100,000 towards a proof of concept within the Shell GameChanger programme, offering a quick and cost-effective way to further test the technical and commercial viability of their solution.
Graham Hodgson, Managing Director at NanoSUN, said, “We are thrilled we won the New Energy Challenge. It has been an intense week and all finalists were so good. This is so exciting for us.”
This year the organisers of the New Energy Challenge – Shell, Rockstart, YES!Delft and Get in the Ring – sought to increase the competition’s impact by differentiating between start-ups and scale-ups and offering separate tracks scaled to their different levels of maturity.
EcoG was named ‘best scale-up’ for the operating system it has developed for EV charging stations.
The New Energy Challenge is organised by Shell in partnership with Rockstart and Yes!Delft, the two leading accelerator programs in the Netherlands. Its goal is to bring together the best and the brightest minds working on the energy transition and accelerate the transition to a lower carbon future.
