Microgrid, a graduate of the RIoT Accelerator Program’s first cohort, was one of five companies selected to join the GCxN Cleantech Accelerator.

Each participating startup will receive as much as $250,000 in non-dilutive funding to aid in development and demonstration of its technology, with the opportunity for future follow-on funding, in addition to access to expertise and laboratory capabilities at both the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Shell.

GCxN is a multimillion-dollar, multiyear cleantech accelerator that works to identify and advance the next generation of transformative energy technologies. It partners early-stage companies with experts from NREL and Shell’s GameChanger program to provide promising startups with access to financial resources, state-of-the-art facilities and world-class technical experts. The assistance is designed to help companies de-risk technology development while accelerating their paths to market.
