It’s true that battling climate change requires innovative, technologically driven ideas that can be tested, replicated and scaled, at warp speed. But inventing wholly new technology isn’t necessarily the answer, nor is the idea we can deploy today's technology all the way to 100 percent clean energy.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1629999489451{padding-bottom:...

Testbeds and strategic partners receive EPIC grant from U.S. Department of Energy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]June 24, 2021[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The Northwest Cleantech Innovation Network (NWCIN), formed in partnership with VertueLab, CleanTech Alliance, Washington Clean Energy Testbeds, and Joint Center for Deployment and Research in Earth Abundant Materials (JCDREAM), is one of 10 incubators and accelerators nationwide receiving grants totaling $9.5M as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Program Innovation Clusters (EPIC) initiative. As part of this initiative, the Testbeds will launch the new CleanTech Hardware Innovation Prototyping (CHIP) program that will increase access to advanced capabilities for scaled prototyping, testing, and demonstration at the facility.
