New Programs

Working alongside our partners, IEC launched three new programs in 2022.

Chevron Studio logo
Chevron Studio links entrepreneurs with national laboratories and universities to scale up and commercialize innovative, early-stage technologies that have the potential to enable a lower-carbon future. This program is a partnership between Chevron Technology Ventures and NREL, with the first cohort of three innovators onboarded in fall 2022.
CECA logo
The Clean Energy Cybersecurity Accelerator™ (CECA) offers a visionary path to accelerate cyber innovation for modern, renewable energy technologies around high-priority cybersecurity risks to the energy sector. CECA is a private-public partnership among NREL; the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response; DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; and major utilities from across the United States, including Berkshire Hathaway Energy, Duke Energy, and Xcel Energy.
West Gate logo
West Gate supports innovators as they develop technology concepts into startups that are primed for growth. They are equipped with funding, entrepreneurial training, and technical assistance to speed their commercialization efforts. IEC manages West Gate, the DOE Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office's newest Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Program, which is hosted by NREL with support from Colorado School of Mines. Meet the first West Gate cohort of four innovators.

Trends in Industry Growth Forum-Attending Startups' Technology Types

This graph shows a snapshot of the continuing evolution of startups in the cleantech space. In 2022, we saw a significant jump in hydrogen and fuel cell technology startups. Energy storage and thermal energy technologies continue to be a major focus of maturing cleantech startups, which aligns with the critical need to support large-scale deployment of renewables.

Innovation on the International Stage

The Global Power System Transformation Consortium

Through a pilot program, the Global Power System Transformation Consortium placed women in power system transformation in fellowships and internships at NREL, the Electric Power Research Institute, and the California Independent System Operator.

United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow

In November 2021, the U.N. convened global leaders in Glasgow, Scotland to collaborate on the fight against climate change. IEC Director Trish Cozart spoke on Accelerating Equitable Climate Action Global Support for Startup Innovation alongside the deputy secretary of energy and our partners Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator and Elemental Excelerator.

Global Clean Energy Incubator Network

IEC hosted a workshop convening 60 stakeholders from more than a dozen countries to collaborate on a global clean energy incubator network and mapped the global ecosystem in 2022 to understand gaps and opportunities in this space.

The Canadian Technology Assistance Program

Through the Canadian Technology Assistance Program, early-stage companies pitch their technologies to NREL experts. Startups can take advantage of validation, analysis, product design support, and more. Fifty-three Canadian companies have worked with NREL through the program; six companies did so in Fiscal Year 2022.

Visits From International Delegates

The IEC hosted visitors from several international organizations throughout 2022 that included the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, and Fortescue Future Industries.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Awards Drive Opportunities for Partners

Four Channel Partner organizations used their IN² strategic awards to deploy programs and opportunities to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion through:

  • Revolving loans
  • Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) specific cohorts, executive coaching, and training for BIPOC founders
  • Overall support for underrepresented or underserved investors and founders.

These funds supported six historically Black colleges and universities, 134 BIPOC students, 70 BIPOC farmers, 11 BIPOC startups, six BIPOC community partner organizations, and 1,820 BIPOC businesses.

IEC has awarded $24.5M in nondilutive funding to cleantech startups and innovators to date.
