Veloce Energy is enabling the electrification of transportation by removing physical and financial barriers to EV charging deployment and the development of grid edge infrastructure. Our purpose-designed battery energy storage and ancillary systems are like Legos™ to leverage the existing grid to do more, faster, at lower cost across multiple sectors.
SkyCool Systems has developed a breakthrough cooling technology that passively rejects heat to the sky in order to efficiently and sustainably run air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Unique to SkyCool Systems' innovation is a fundamentally different way of achieving cooling and harnessing an untapped renewable resource: the cold sky.
Sapphire Technologies’ energy recovery systems convert the energy wasted in pressure reduction processes into clean electric power. Our vision is to improve the way the world harvests and utilizes energy, and our mission is to enable substantial financial returns for our customers by harvesting wasted: pressure energy while reducing the global carbon footprint.
