On Monday 26th September the Shell Springboard will open for applications.
The Shell Springboard programme supports UK businesses with bright solutions to reduce carbon emissions. One national winner will receive £150,000 and a further five regional winners will each get £40,000 of equity-free funding, as well as feedback from leading academics, investors and policymakers, to help scale-up their enterprises. Shell Springboard has supported a wide range of some of the most ground-breaking low-carbon companies in the UK, including:
- C-Capture (2016 winner) – clean energy technology that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial gas streams.
- Deciwatt’s GravityLight (2015 winner) – technology to generate light from gravity, providing a safe alternative to kerosene lamps for off-grid communities.
