The ClimateTech Prototyping Hardware Accelerator
If you have an idea for a product that falls into the “cleantech”or “climate tech” category—this program will help you test your idea and prepare you to launch your own company. Participants are eligible for up to $10k in financial support.
Cleantech startups face unique challenges—different funding and grant considerations, specific certifications and validation criteria, etc. The ClimateTech Prototyping Hardware Accelerator will address these challenges head on with guest speakers from across the cleantech space, custom workshops focused on climate tech and cleantech growth, and access to mentors experienced in the clean energy industry.
Climate Technology is defined as innovation that supports decarbonization of the economy through hardware, software, technology-enabled services, data analytics, or processes that broadly reduce energy consumption, increase resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or enable the transition to a sustainable and decarbonized economy.
The ClimateTech Prototyping Hardware Accelerator follows the same curriculum as the Prototyping Hardware Accelerator, but includes workshops, speakers, and trainings tailored to cleantech and climatetech startups. The program is funded by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
