Research & Development.

on High-Impact Cleantech.

Under Time Pressure.

Welcome to FCA.

Designing Tomorrow‘s Energy Systems

High-impact innovation in the energy transition is particularly challenging because it needs to done under severe time pressure. The climate system is on the verge of tipping points which would have irreversible and catastrophic consequences for most ecosystems on Earth.
To support this leap in innovation is the mission of FCA.

Future Cleantech Architects

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.

The Flow of FCA

High-impact ideas need to be cross-checked continuously
  • 1
    Scout and Develop

    We track developments in key R&D areas

  • 2
    Work with Innovators

    We accompany ambitious ideas throughout innovation stages

  • 3
    Structure the Lessons Learned

    We condense any findings on finance, scalability and technical match-making and provide results to decision-makers

Scout breakthrough cleantech development

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.

Connect strong partners in breakthrough cleantech

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.
