EnergyLab: Program to accelerate creation of renewable energy start-ups launches in Sydney

 ABC Radio Sydney  By Amanda Hoh 14 Apr 17 A start-up accelerator program, dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs designing renewable energy products and technologies, has kickstarted in Sydney.

EnergyLab, based in Chippendale, has granted four companies $50,000 each to spend 12 to 24 months bringing their clean-tech products to market.

Most start-up incubators give entrepreneurs 90 days to develop their products, according to co-founder Piers Grove.

The companies include:

  • Eveeh: An electric vehicle car-sharing network.
  • Iron Matrix: A Perth company designing a construction system that replaces bricks and mortar with easy-to-manoeuvre steel posts and solar panels.
  • BlueVolt: Solar products that can be installed anywhere by anybody.
  • Energy Assist: Loans company for those wanting to buy energy-efficient appliances.

The first cohort of start-ups moved into the EnergyLab hub this week at the University of Technology Sydney, where they will receive dedicated mentors, office space and partnership opportunities as they bring their ideas to fruition……..
