Low Carbon Accelerators

Decarbonization Avenue : Low Carbon Accelerators

Since 2015, there have been a number of players who have donned the mantle of accelerators for the cleantech and climate change sectors. Such accelerators could bring forth:

  • Finance - venture and angel capital firms, for instance

  • Expertise - examples could be industry-specific, region specific, or even university specific incubators who provide access to industry or technology experts, or

  • Connections & visibility - sponsors or organizers of cleantech contests, multi-stakeholder events etc.

Accelerator profiles are diverse. These could be industry or domain-specific consortortia, government bodies, large corporates, universities, finance/investment firms, high net worth individuals and in some cases, even civil societies.

While there is no reliable count for the number of such accelerators, it could be in thousands worldwide, with prominent examples already visible for specific industries, countries (even cities) and technology domains.

Accelerators have the potential to significantly contribute to decarbonization through their customized efforts to seed, support, nurture and scale innovations from diverse segments, regions and innovator profiles - things conventional efforts may not be able to accomplish quickly enough.
