Founder's Pledge

„The science-based approach of Future Cleantech Architects (FCA) has significantly influenced the strategic investment decision on our new bus fleet. Our fleet consists of about 90 buses and we were considering two options: hydrogen buses (with a fuel cell) or all-electric buses with battery systems. The advice of FCA and their expert team has led us to decide against hydrogen (which will be more urgently needed in other applications) and go for a more efficient and economic all-electric bus fleet instead.”

Prof. Dr. Thomas Hoffmann
Managing Director (Geschäftsführer) | Stadtwerke Remscheid / EWR GmbH

''Its aim is to promote innovation in Europe’s hard-to-decarbonize sectors by running key programs in, for example, zero-carbon fuels, industry, and carbon removal technologies. (...) You might be wondering if this kind of innovation really meets the “neglectedness” criterion — don’t we already have a lot innovation? In the US, yes. But in Europe, this kind of organization is much rarer.''

''What is special about FCA's approach is that the organization not only takes on the advocacy for these technologies at the political level, but is also itself part of research consortia for the development of these technologies.''
