The third edition of The Clean Fight will be focused on high-growth, scalable solutions creating abundant storage, enabling grid stability and a resilient, electrified future. The goal is to find companies at the sweet spot of market appetite, and climate and human impact.
The Clean Fight is focused on:
Growth Stage Companies
Startups with solutions that are ready to scale: products or services with proven efficacy, impact, and adoption that can quickly support a far bigger customer base.
GHG impact, job creation, and speed of implementation are a few favorite things. Solutions that enable a just transition, benefitting frontline and underserved communities, and a resilient and adaptive future are of particular interest.
Energy Storage Solutions
The Clean Fight is looking for best-in-class solutions built to meet the future needs of a modern grid and a resilient, electrified world in a better way. Areas of particular interest include:
Solutions for new builds or retrofits are welcome. If you have a solution outside of these areas, The Clean Fight encourages you to apply if you meet the other criteria.
The program is designed to facilitate business agreements with customers in New York. If you secure contracts as a result of the program, you must be willing to establish a presence in New York State.
