Renewables for industryProject Clean Energy Startup Support Programs
This report presents the lessons learnt during the first six months of the Clean Energy Startup Support Programs led by EnergyLab.
EnergyLab’s Clean Energy Startup Support Programs Project involves delivering four programs to help accelerate startups’ progress in deploying renewable energy and complementary technologies.
Progress achieved from the Project’s commencement (December 2019) to ‘Milestone 2’ (August 2020) included:
- Pre-Acceleration Program launched, recruitment completed, and delivery commenced
- Acceleration Program (re)launched, recruitment completed, and orientation and sales
- Scaleup Program launched and recruitment completed
- Women in Clean Energy Fellowship launched, and recruitment and delivery completed.
We’ve learnt a number of lessons in delivering this Project so far. These lessons provide valuable insight into how accelerator organisations like ours can most effectively support and mentor startups, help advance commercialisation pathways for renewable energy technology and increase renewable energy uptake by bringing value streams together.
