For over three years, the Incubatenergy Network has been growing with leadership from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL). Starting with just a few initial members, the network has grown to now include over 20 groups within the US and several international organizations. We are excited to highlight several of these new collaborative partners as EPRI takes ownership of the network for the future.
First, within the US we have had several new incubator and accelerator programs join the network, including the Ameren Accelerator in St. Louis, the EPICenter in San Antonio, Launch Alaska in Anchorage, Potential Energy DC in the capital, and Worcester Cleantech Incubator in Massachusetts. We have been very pleased to welcome these newer programs to the network during our last couple of meetings.
Next, a few new international programs have also joined, including Carbon Limiting Technologies in London and MaRS in Toronto. We are excited to be expanding our collaborations around the world!
Finally, the California Clean Energy Fund's New Energy Nexus program has also recently announced more formal collaboration with the Incubatenergy Network, bringing strong connections in Africa, Asia, Australia, and more. After a successful effort working together on the most recent Accelerate Energy Summit in Shanghai, we are excited to work together again on the upcoming www.electrification2018.com conference this August 20-23 in Los Angeles.
We look forward to seeing everyone again this summer! Additional details about a couple of these new collaborations can also be found at the links listed below.
