Apply for the world’s first global energy accelerator

Free Electrons is the global energy startup accelerator program that connects the world’s most promising startups with leading utility companies to co-create the future of energy and innovative customer solutions. The program is an unprecedented opportunity for later stage energy startups to gain access to the utility partners that can help them scale and expand into new markets around the world.

The utility partners in Free Electrons are leaders in the clean energy transition, covering more than 40 countries, representing over $148 billion in combined net income and access to over 73 million end customers worldwide.

Twelve startups will be chosen to participate in the Free Electrons Accelerator which consists of three separate week-long ‘customer adoption’ modules in Silicon Valley, Lisbon/Dublin and Singapore where they have the opportunity to meet with investors, attend leadership trainings and engage with the utilities decision makers in the hope of landing a contract and/or strategic investment during the program or trialing their service with one of the utilities.
