Bold Ideas 2020 Final Showcase Event

About this Event

As we move toward a distributed, digitized, and decarbonized energy economy, energy storage has become more important than ever. Innovation in technology and business models will be crucial to this transition—and that’s where Bold Ideas 2020, a Greentown Launch program in partnership with Schneider Electric, comes in.

On Thursday, March 25, join us to virtually celebrate the culmination of Bold Ideas 2020—a corporate partnerships accelerator program that has supported four innovative startups focused on advancing energy storage. Attendees will hear the Bold Ideas 2020 participants speak about their technologies, what they have learned and accomplished over the past six months, and where they are headed next.

Learn about the startups below!

  • e-Zinc, based in Toronto, develops a low-cost, flexible, and long-duration electrochemical technology solution that stores energy in zinc metal.
  • Packetized Energy, based in Vermont, develops a platform solution to transform existing energy devices in homes and businesses into smart, valuable, and flexible energy resources.
  • Salient Energy, based in Nova Scotia, makes a unique zinc-ion battery with a water-based chemistry that is cheaper, safer, and longer-lasting than lithium-ion batteries.
  • Sensai Analytics, based in Massachusetts and Cork, Ireland, develops a prescriptive analytics engine that rapidly produces robust forecasting models for prescriptive maintenance, demand forecasting, and operations management.
