Since starting in 2014, IN2 selects startup companies that can make a real impact on the cleantech or agtech market. In 2022, we launched the first all-demonstration cohort with the goal of de-risking new customer acquisition by providing concrete examples of success. This report highlights five startups that will complete an actual demonstration of their technologies with deployment support from a community partner and NREL researchers.
Several companies in the affordable housing, commercial buildings, and sustainable agriculture sectors also moved into the demonstration phase in 2022. We feature startups deploying prefabricated kitchens, a vehicle-to-grid charging system, and a higher-yield crop of hemp.
