Australian accelerator, EnergyLab is launching its clean energy scaleup program, amid wider industry calls for increased investment in renewables, to bolster jobs and the post-COVID economic recovery.
Environmental and industry groups, pushing for increased government investment, point to figures from Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), which show that jobs in the renewable energy sector are likely to almost double in the next five years, if given the required support.
EnergyLab works with startups to develop and bring innovative clean energy technology to market by connecting founders to the mentors, advisors, partners, peers and investors that they need to succeed and help drive global energy innovation.
The accelerator says the 13 companies being unveiled at the program launch next month have all demonstrated significant potential to develop and deploy technologies needed for the transition to 100 percent renewable energy.
The technology solutions featured range from hydrogen fuel cells to unmanned aerial systems, demand forecasting software to multi-sided platforms.
EnergyLab’s Scaleup Program is designed to multiply the impact of the world’s most promising late-stage clean energy startups.
The launch will include startup Q&As and breakout sessions.
The program is supported by and run in partnership with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, APA, Powerlink, AusNet Services, Counties Power, Yurika, Nectr, the International Microgrid Association, and FRV.
