The EcoComplex not only provides affordable and unique lab, office and scale-up space, but also it partners with the incubating companies on projects and grant proposals for testing and verification of emerging clean energy technologies. These integrated efforts reduce risks, break-down barriers to success and facilitate the transition of new technologies into the clean energy market.
