What we have reached

FCA's Milestones 2023

2023 was an exceptional year at Future Cleantech Architects. We hired exceptional talents for our cleantech analysts’ unit and our European policy team, expanding our presence to the European capital, Brussels. Extending our areas of focus to the construction and transport sectors, FCA not only hosted a second iteration of The ARC Future Cleantech Festival, we also launched our new Coffee & Cleantech event series, a monthly technical briefing for policymakers in Brussels. Additionally, we were able to release two new episodes of our series “The Basics & The Gaps” – on long duration energy storage and aviation – and share preliminary results of the comprehensive survey on future needs of RD&D that we launched together with UN Climate Change’s Technology Executive Committee.

Finally, we took the analysis and results from our publications and work to COP28 in Dubai, where we co-hosted two sessions on Innovative Renewables for Energy Security and the Future RD&D Needs. We are also proud to announce that Future Cleantech Architects was officially accepted as an official Non-Governmental Observer Organization by UN Climate Change in 2023.
