16 businesses come to Colorado to champion British cleantech innovation
Ideas get bigger when you share them...
Denver, Colorado - December 3, 2013 (Investorideas.com renewable energy stocks newswire) This week, sixteen of the UK 's most promising clean technology companies are in Colorado as part of Clean and Cool Mission 2013. This select group is visiting the U.S to showcase unique green technologies and develop new business relationships in the fastest-growing cleantech ecosystems in the U.S. The trip coincides with (NREL) Industry Growth Forum, the nation's premier clean energy investment event.
The companies participating in The Clean and Cool Mission to Colorado will learn from key leaders in the field and network with potential investors in Boulder , Denver , and Fort Collins . The mission lasts through December 6 and was organized by the UK 's innovation agency, The Technology Strategy Board, together with The Long Run Venture and UK Trade and Investment.
"It's fantastic to be able to bring sixteen of the UK's best cleantech entrepreneurs to Colorado to find out how to link up and partner with the fastest growing cleantech cluster in the US , meet with potential investors and learn about how to do business here," said Rob Saunders, Head of Energy at the Technology Strategy Board. "There's a great mix of new products represented, from electric motorbikes to using straw residue to make more sustainable logs that burn better. And already, one day into the mission, there's a buzz in the group but also a real sense of learning from one another and helping each other to get the most from the mission experience."
As the number one U.S market for renewable energy and second best state for entrepreneurship and innovation, the Mission will enable participants to learn first-hand how to accelerate their business in the important U.S market.
As selected to be part of the mission, the following sixteen companies will have an opportunity to extend their international operations in sectors ranging from solar and wind, smart grids, energy storage, system integration, to smart buildings and transport:
Agility Global has blended Formula 1 and aerospace design with advanced engineering and electric technology to manufacture the world's first high-performance, clean tech motorcycle. Saietta, is a premium, electric urban sports motorcycle that more than lives up to its name. Strikingly designed, fast and powerful, it is also clean and green.
Alquist has pioneered an award-winning Data Center temperature management system, targeted to become the new world standard for a $17bn industry segment growing at 28% per annum. Alquist's monitoring system enables Data Center operators to manage risk and reduce energy spend, resulting in reduced carbon emissions.
Arcola Energy is a developer, manufacturer and retailer of fuel cell-based low carbon energy solutions, converting chemical energy from a fuel, such as hydrogen, into electricity. Ultimately, this makes electricity more accessible and cost-effective for consumers and businesses. Arcola's technology can be used in the home and within the construction, entertainment, education and automotive industries.
To support the continued roll-out of smart grids throughout the U.S. , Each For All Productions has developed the Merismus micro-grid which is plugged into a smart meter to automatically manage grid and microgeneration energy usage to lower energy bills through very little effort.
Energy created through the roof which could eliminate heating, cooling and hot water bills is the aim of a new product from Flint Engineering which blends a photovoltaic and solar thermal collector in a roofing/cladding material to be used on both new and refitted domestic and commercial buildings.
The energy output of the sun is about 386 billion megawatts, presenting a free and inexhaustible power source that can be captured and converted into electricity. Fullsun Photovoltaics is doing exactly that by using High Concentrated Photovoltaic (HCPV) technology in a lightweight solar module designed for utility and commercial/industrial rooftop markets.
Current technology is incapable of realistically meeting future demand for sustainable aviation biofuels. The mission of Green Fuels Research, a new venture building on 10 years' CleanTech heritage, is to develop enabling technologies at every step in the value chain from primary producer to airplane
In the US , a massive $7.4 billion is spent on cooling datacentres annually. Iceotope supports these applications by providing massive processing power, memory and storage in an integrated computing system cooled with liquid, which saves energy and lowers costs.
Magnifye superconducting permanent magnets can be used to improve the efficiency of any electrical machine. Ten times stronger than conventional magnets, they are small enough to fit into the palm of the hand and large enough to power a train or a cruise liner. With almost limitless applications, Magnifye could transform the way the world powers electrical machines.
Moixa Technology plans to put millions of smart batteries into customer premises to reduce peak period demand on the grid and improve the energy efficiency of essential Direct Current (DC) devices such as lights and mobile phones. Use of Moixa's technology helps to significantly reduce bills and improves energy security by enabling the storage of energy at off-peak times.
PJH Partnership has developed an innovative and domestically applicable solar power storage unit. The system is targeted to address grid-scale storage and balancing needs resulting from the continual growth of electricity generation from domestic houses.
Renovagen has developed a transportable solar power solution that is capable of generating ten times more power than existing technologies. Designed for temporary or semi-permanent use in remote off-grid locations where self-sufficient power generation is essential.
Considerable energy savings in both domestic and commercial environments can be realised by using high power heat batteries. Sunamp has developed a Heat Battery that is super-compact but can store heat from conventional and non-conventional heat pumps and boilers, delivering it quickly and with maximum energy efficiency as needed.
Through innovation and ingenuity Straw Fuels has created a range of eco-friendly fire logs. Made from straw, the logs are clean, easy to use and produce much lower levels of smoke than traditional wood.
Public vehicles, particularly buses, have a reputation for polluting roads, but a new hybrid-electric system from Vantage Power has been designed to help the bus industry to meet the increasing demands for lower emissions, improve air quality, and cut fuel consumption simultaneously, without the need for investing in new hybrid buses.
The U.S. has a target of 20% renewable energy by 2020, and this target has been behind the development of a new grid-scale energy storage battery from Wind Power Performance that promises to lower energy storage costs globally.
The Mission is made possible by key partners the Technology Strategy Board and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), alongside other private sponsors. Arranged by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, the Mission is organised by The Long Run Venture and the Co-Sponsorship Agency. More information is available on www.cleanandcoolmission.com
