Fullsun Photovoltaics Limited, the Keighley based Solar Technology developer, is among a group of the UK’s most promising clean technology companies that have been chosen to attend the Clean and Cool Mission to Colorado in December. The sixteen companies, which were unveiled at an official ceremony in London Wednesday night, will visit Colorado, the fastest-growing cleantech ecosystem in the U.S, to showcase their innovations and explore business opportunities associated with tackling climate change.
The week-long Clean and Cool Mission to Colorado, organised by the UK’s innovation agency, The Technology Strategy Board, together with The Long Run Venture and UK Trade and Investment, will see the sixteen UK cleantech companies learn from key leaders in the field and network with potential investors in Boulder, Denver and Fort Collins – they will participate in the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Industry Growth Forum, the premier clean energy investment event in the U.S.
As the number one U.S market for renewable energy and second best state for entrepreneurship and innovation, the Mission to Colorado will enable participants to learn first-hand how to accelerate their business in the important U.S market.
Discussing Wednesday’s announcement, a delighted Hugh Rudden, Fullsun’s CEO said: “This is a great accolade for Fullsun and a very big opportunity. To be recognised as one of the UK’s most promising Cleantech companies is an honour. The chance to be on this Mission will give us some great opportunities to forge links with the US Cleantech market and investor community”.
Taking place 30th November – 6th December, the sixteen companies will have an opportunity to extend their international operations in sectors ranging from solar and wind, smart grids, energy storage, system integration, to smart buildings and transport.
