Senergy – Nanocomposite materials that enable the design of low cost, low carbon thermal solar panels that reduce the cost of delivering one kilowatt of heat at a price that will compete with gas and oil (Belfast, UK) .

Scale For ClimateTech is a free manufacturing accelerator, one of only five in the United States to offer growth stage manufacturing support programming for start-ups and provide founders with a range of resources, technical expertise and advice. The program is administered by nonprofit entrepreneurship catalyst NextCorps and impact innovation company SecondMuse, and is supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Over a dozen partners, including Urban Future Lab, Partsimony, Newlab, Cornell University, REV: Ithaca Startup Works, NY Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) and the RIT Golisano Institute of Sustainability, support programming and provide founders with a range resources, technical expertise and advice.

Entry into Scale For ClimateTech is a competitive process, with a selection based on the effectiveness of a technological solution, team dynamics, business plan, investment prospects, need for manufacturing resources. and the potential benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in New York State to meet the state’s climate and clean energy goals under the Climate Leadership and Community Protections Act .

Each company in the cohort will have access to dedicated mentors, entry into the New York State hardware ecosystem, industry expert Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) assessments, a deeper understanding of GHG impact and a personalized roadmap development plan. In addition, they will also have access to strategic partnerships, founders friendly investors and subcontractors to commercialize the technology in New York State and beyond.

The Scale for ClimateTech program is a catalyst for commercializing climate technology companies, saving them time and money and enabling them to help reduce carbon emissions while supporting targets of New York on climate and clean energy. “

“As the program continues to grow in our fourth year and the manufacturing community recovers from the pandemic, it is inspiring to see so many climate technology innovators around the world developing hardware devices to reduce emissions. greenhouse gases, ”said Scale For ClimateTech CEO. and program manager for NextCorps, Mike Riedlinger. “We are urgently working with a group selected to manufacture products in volume to help reduce potential climate impacts for our future. “

“We are very impressed with the next cohort of new technologies and the various innovators behind them. Many of the companies selected came from personal recommendations from other programs and incubators, and even from our alumni, which sends a clear message: we can and must work together to solve the climate crisis, ”said Shelby Thompson, head of senior program at Scale. For ClimateTech and Program Manager for SecondMuse.

About For ClimateTech The For ClimateTech initiative, which includes Venture For ClimateTech and Scale For ClimateTech, is supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and is administered by the nonprofit entrepreneurship catalyst NextCorps and impact innovation company SecondMuse.
