Future Cleantech Architects

Designing Tomorrow‘s Energy Systems


We are a collective, our experts have worked in cleantech for many years, realizing that the breakthrough innovation process needs to move faster in order to mitigate the most dramatic effects of climate change.

We are economists, engineers or designers by education, yet our approach is interdisciplinary.

We work on breakthrough cleantech, both in hardware and in processes: Our work ranges from fundamental research in renewable generation technologies to process innovations which help to decarbonize emission-intensive industrial operations. 

Our vision: increase the success rate of breakthrough cleantech R&D.


As a collective, we have worked in numerous R&D projects and seen excellent ideas that have not even made it to the prototype phase. One pillar of our work is to scout outstanding ideas in very early phases – that is in laboratories, research institutes and other creative hotspots.
 

Those who come up with the initial technology idea do not necessarily have the entrepreneurial vision and spirit to lead the new technology to commercialization. We facilitate contact and cooperation between both sides through our network and expertise, teaming suitable partners up to effective consortia.
 

Navigating through all stages from basic research to mass market commercialization is challenging. Cleantech development is faced with particular challenges in finance, regulation and strategic fit to utility-scale investors. We help high-impact ideas to bridge these proverbial ‘valleys of death’ in tech development.
