Bloomberg Environment: Think about it: our society is always plugged into something. Whether it’s smartphone chargers or smart TVs or large appliances or electric vehicles, we are consuming more energy than we ever have before. This has led to a host of efforts by utilities to implement demand response programs, which seek to adjust the demand for power, rather than adjusting the supply to meet the demand.
CleanTechnica: The product was envisioned, designed, and engineered by a team of former Tesla engineers that brought the Powerwall to market, led by Tesla’s former Head of Product, Arch Rao.
Current News UK: After multiple rounds of evaluation, five companies have been chosen to take part in the accelerator, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Electrek: Companies are recommended by a member of the GCxN Pipeline Partners network (clean-tech incubators, accelerators, and universities), and finalists are selected after review by NREL and Shell.
NREL: The Shell GameChanger™ Accelerator Powered by NREL (GCxN) today announced the second round of startup companies to participate in its cleantech accelerator.
MIT Technology Review: Form Energy, Antora, and others are trying to develop very cheap, very long-lasting storage to clean up the electricity system.
Medium: While energy density is an important factor for cutting cost per kWh, efficiency and consistency in battery production processes is an important part of the equation. To date, battery production has been more of an art than a science. In order to meet the projected global demand at a reasonable cost, the industry must also focus on improving production processes to ensure quality and avoid wasting time and resources.
A Global Energy GameChanger: Shell and NREL are Teaming Up to Deliver Startup Technology to a Rapidly Transforming Energy Market
NREL: As demand for renewable energy increases worldwide, energy companies are taking aggressive steps to meet it.
In the case of Antora Energy’s thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy storage technology, what’s old is new again. And Myles Steiner, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is helping the company to reinvigorate it.
Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis: This study compares and contrasts many of the leaders in cleantech incubation and acceleration, including Shell GameChanger Accelerator Powered by NREL (GCxN).
