Carnot Engines is a pioneer in the technology of choice for the future of energy: hydrogen, addressing the challenge of decarbonising industry, transport and energy by facilitating and accelerating the deployment of hydrogen at scale and the path to zero emissions.
Combining high power density, high efficiency, very compact, lightweight and low total cost of ownership, and working with cutting-edge research organisations and advanced manufacturers, Carnot is co-developing the industry’s new engines with leading OEMs and major impact investors.
A company specialising in the development of wind turbines that will be the first modern turbines to generate electricity from the high-energy but unused middle layers of the wind. When installed on existing wind farms, its technology synergistically enhances the output of taller propeller turbines by driving the higher speed wind into their rotors. Harnessing the potential of existing wind farms and their wind turbines is an unprecedented opportunity to bring new exponential growth in wind energy production to the energy revolution. The goal is to prevent the world from passing the climate tipping point.
Oscilla Power aims to harness the significant untapped potential of ocean waves and deliver the first commercially attractive power generation solutions competitive with traditional renewables in the high potential ocean wave energy market. Its wave energy converter, Triton, is designed to deliver utility-scale power at a competitive cost by combining best-in-class energy capture and power generation with unprecedented reliability and survivability..
A state-of-the-art electric moped is the most stylish way to get around London. Built to last, it brings cutting-edge technology to the streets without a single polluting emission in sight. Human Forest’s mission is to build happier, healthier cities for all by empowering our urban environment with electric bikes powered by renewable energy..
Orbital Marine Power
A company on a mission to bring a new source of clean, predictable energy to millions of people, homes and businesses around the world.
Their unique floating platform is anchored to powerful tidal or river currents and uses underwater rotors to capture the dense, flowing energy. Decarbonising energy is an imperative for the security of future generations and a responsibility for all of us, so they have developed an innovative solution that can cost-effectively harness the enormously dense and predictable renewable energy flowing in the world’s ocean and river currents..
