The Cleantech Council is a group of corporates committed to partnering with startups to meet their clean, green, and sustainability goals. Members are forward-looking corporations from a wide variety of industries who meet monthly in Silicon Valley to review startups for potential partnership and investment opportunities.
Cleantech Council members and guests gather monthly to review new technologies and a handful of new clean, green, and sustainability companies and solutions coming out of the technology industry's entrepreneurial community across the globe.
This month we met virtually to review 5 startups and explore some of the opportunities around hydrogen. Thanks to community members from PG&E and US DOD for running Q&A with our startup presenters and to Airbus and Nitto Denko and Hyundai Cradle for their insight during our discussion on hydrogen.
Startups with clean, green, sustainable, or climate-based innovation who are ready to scale with corporate partners and investors are encouraged to apply to pitch on a future agenda here.
October’s member meeting included a roundtable discussion on opportunities in Hydrogen and the consensus is that in all markets from trucking and marine to cars and aviation, the biggest problem to solve is capitalizing green hydrogen generation, distribution, & logistics to beat the chicken and egg problem. While lots of use cases and concepts are being proven, it's going to take focused intervention to make it reach scale, and EU, Japan, and Korea were cited as deployment hot spots. Startups working on #Generation, #HydrogenStorage, #FuelCells, #Aviation, and #NatGas were shared.
Bi-monthly Startup Review meetings are closed to non-members, the public and media. Guest passes for future members may be available on a fit and capacity basis. Regular participants include tech scouts, innovation strategy, partnership executives and corporate development delegates from:
