Aberdeen accelerator Net Zero Technology Centre is seeking applications from clean energy start-ups for a place on the programme, with funding of up to £100,000 for each start-up.
Backed by BP, Equinor Ventures and Adnoc, NZTC said the programme will accelerate the growth of the selected companies by providing access to expert mentors, technology development guidance and commercial support.
The accelerator said applicants should have a focus on:
- Carbon capture utilisation and storage
- Low carbon hydrogen
- Alternative fuels and green chemicals
- Renewable power
- Digital solutions
- Decarbonised industrial heat and cooling.
Now in its sixth year, the TechX accelerator has engaged with 57 technology start-ups who have collectively gone on to generate over £10m in annual revenue.
TechX director Mark Anderson commented: “Start-ups stand poised as instrumental drivers in our journey towards achieving net zero. Our TechX Accelerator provides an environment where fledgling companies can unlock their full potential, spark novel concepts, and grow at an accelerated pace.”
The UK government is investing £90m in the Net Zero Technology Centre to support sustainable economic growth in North East Scotland.
The application deadline is 1 October 2023, with the accelerator set to begin in February 2024. Application details are here.
