Our added value services

Market intelligence

why icon

We work closely with policy makers and regulators to understand markets and regulation. This gives our innovators the capability to expand geographically and take advantage of support such as accreditations and certifications to comply with local standards.

Technology enchancement

why icon

To transform a technology into a marketable product or service we assess its potential, patentability, identify and track possible competitors, and ensure IP is protected. We go on to support with prototype enhancement, product development and pilots and provide access to expertise and R&D infrastructure

Customer and growth

why icon

We open-up markets and cross borders to identify needs and connect innovators to commercial opportunities. Time to market can be essential to survival, therefore we help you shorten the journey from lab to launch. What’s more, our shareholders are among the top players within the energy industry, and quite often support as a first customer or early adopter.

Supply chain and industrialization

why icon

Our trusted ecosystem provides innovators, investors and industry with access to key players and commercially viable technologies, spanning the entire supply chain. This expertise helps to industrialise the innovations we support, providing industry with a wide spectrum of sustainable energy solutions.

Governance strategy

why icon

Our experts provide guidance on the strategic direction of the businesses we support. This includes helping companies define their priorities; coaching and
advising on technical and business matters; managing stakeholders; and identifying synergies and opportunities for collaboration.

Social acceptance and citizen engagement

why icon

We promote societal acceptance and citizen engagement to disrupt the way we experience energy. We generate inspiration that leads to societal awareness and an understanding of the impact an individual can make. This ultimately leads to changes in regulation, the uptake of more sustainable energy solutions and an acceleration of the energy transition.

Regulation

why icon

Our team of experts play a pivotal role in the decisions that affect the future of the energy industry. They have their finger on the pulse when policies are in the making – enabling us to provide insights on new regulations which may impact the innovations we support and identify opportunities for sustainable economic development.

Access to finance

why icon

Because our goal is to ensure all innovations deliver a commercially viable product, we don’t ‘fund and run’. We offer a flexible funding model to suit the changing needs of the products we support. This can then go on to act as a catalyst for further funding from a variety of public and private bodies.

Access to human capital

why icon

The makers and shapers of the energy world as we know it today have been people. Therefore, we spur innovation by linking innovators and industry with students and alumni who possess the skills, entrepreneurial ability, commercial awareness and agility needed to drive the energy transition.

Thematic Fields

Developing a sustainable energy future is one of the biggest challenges facing Europe today, that is why we are working in eight critical thematic fields. If you would like to apply to the Investment Round, please make sure your project aligns with at least one.
