    Clean Energy Institute and the Testbeds Visit

    Join Alex Nephew, Solar Washington President on a visit of the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds, a 15,000 square-foot facility founded in 2017 by the University of Washington’s Clean Energy Institute. Designed to assist in the scale-up, prototyping, testing, and validating of clean energy innovations, the Testbeds are used by faculty, students, and researchers at leading companies and research institutions from around the world. The expert staff and specially designed facility allow researchers to develop new technologies at scales from that of a lab bench to a commercial solar panel or battery stack. Through entrepreneur support programs such as our Cleantech Hardware Innovation Prototyping program, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, and Investor-in-Residence, the Testbeds are an active gathering space for cleantech innovators and investors.

    Space is limited so you need to RSVP to reserve you place on the tour.
