Free Electrons Global Startup-Utility 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. The program is an opportunity for later stage energy startups to gain access to the utility customers that can help them scale and expand into new markets around the world.

The power utility partners in Free Electrons are leaders in the clean energy transition, delivering cutting edge solutions to over 73 million customers in 40 countries around the planet with sales in excess of $148 billion.

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.

Startups are also eligible to win up to $200,000 in cash prizes.
