Let’s change how we power our world.
Decarbonizing our energy systems is critical to climate action—electricity generation alone is responsible for 27 percent of global greenhouse-gas emissions, and for hard-to-decarbonize applications where electrification isn’t possible, we’ll need new fuels and other solutions that deliver energy without carbon emissions.
To tackle emissions in this sector, we need collaborative innovations that change how energy is generated, stored, transported, and consumed. In this program track, we bring startups and corporates together to accelerate the commercialization of solutions from novel battery technologies, to offshore wind, to grid management, and more. How do you want to transform the sector next?

The Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator
The Low-Carbon Hydrogen Accelerator (LCHA)—a program in partnership with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Shell, the City of Houston, and the Urban Future Lab at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering—is accelerating technologies that advance low-carbon hydrogen production, enhance hydrogen storage and distribution, or offer business model innovations for the management of hydrogen supply chains.
- Advanced Ionics (Milwaukee, WI) is enabling green hydrogen production without the green premium.
- Arco Technologies (Bologna, Italy) is developing a proprietary Anion Exchange Membrane electrolyzer with the lowest capital expenditures and operating expenses possible today.
- Clean Power (Greater Manchester, United Kingdom) is developing a novel, low-cost, highly durable hydrogen polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell delivering zero-emission electricity.
- Element Resources (Houston, TX) is enabling compressed hydrogen storage tank technology.
- Smartpipe Technologies (Houston, TX) is developing a robust self-monitored repurposed pipeline system for hydrogen with minimal environmental disruption.
- SPEC Sensors (Newark, CA) is creating a robust and reliable meshed sensor network for hydrogen leak detection and line-monitoring systems.
- RUNWITHIT Synthetics (Alberta, Canada) is creating a live, digital twin modeling platform that generates decision-support data for regional hydrogen-demand scenarios.

Go Energize Alumni
u0022Jean-Luc Meyer from Schneider Electric took it almost like a mission to introduce us to the business units, introduce us to the venture group—to drive that progress. The [Go Energize 2018] Bold Ideas Challenge led to a Series A investment, which Schneider Electric co-led, and that was very instrumental for our company in order to get where we are and where we’re moving.u0022
