Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator Final Showcase

September 29 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm Central

Join us on Thursday, September 29 to celebrate the culmination of the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator!

Thursday, September 29 | 5:00pm CT / 6:00pm ET | Hybrid Event

On Thursday, Sept. 29, join us at Greentown Labs Houston to celebrate the culmination of the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator—the 2022 program in the Greentown Go Energize track—a-first-of-its-kind startup-corporate partnerships accelerator focused on advancing innovations that are key to enabling a low-carbon hydrogen economy in partnership with EPRI, Shell, the City of Houston, and the Urban Future Lab at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

Together, these partners have supported seven innovative startups building the low-carbon hydrogen technologies required to enable economy-wide decarbonization. Attendees will hear the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator participants speak about their technologies, their demonstration and validation work with EPRI and Shell, and where they are headed next.
