AWS announces startups selected to participate in the Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0Mar 07, 2023 by Energy Connects
Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced at CERAWeek the startups selected for the Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 a high-pace, non-equity dilutive accelerator designed to facilitate collaborations with mature startups developing breakthrough clean energy technologies.
The AWS Clean Energy Accelerator aims to foster innovation and rapid growth of clean energy technology, which is needed to address the global climate crisis. Primary focus areas of the AWS Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 include: advanced materials; carbon capture, utility and storage; economic hydrogen generation, transport, and use; energy storage; grid modernization; energy security and reliance.
The program is designed to spur co-innovation through energy collaborations, and is centered on the needs of mature startups from across the globe. Through the program, industry and thought leaders will mentor startups on topics like energy, digital competency, investment, public policy, innovation, and advanced research. Leading energy organizations will work with selected startups on addressing clean energy and decarbonisation challenges, while AWS provides guidance in accelerating experimentation, expanding automation, and delivering deep insights by leveraging the cloud.
To date, the AWS Clean Energy Accelerator has helped over 14 pilot kickoffs and influenced more than $207 million in seed funding for clean energy and climate technology startups.
