Personal and homecare cleaning products such as detergents, shampoos and laundry powders are manufactured on an industrial scale and rely on vast quantities of petrochemical surfactants. Consumer conglomerates are demanding more environmentally friendly feedstocks and Holiferm is satisfying this with natural, low-cost biosurfactants produced by fermentation.


Piclo has built an online platform which unlocks new revenue streams for flexible energy assets while simultaneously supporting the balance of supply and demand on power grids. This is accomplished by creating independent marketplaces for trading ‘flexibility’. These reduce grid congestion rates which in turn enables greater renewable energy penetration and reduces the need for costly network upgrades.


Nuada is a vertically integrated pure-play carbon capture company that is poised to decarbonise heavy industries through its next generation point-source capture technology. The company builds energy-efficient CO2 filtration machines that enable industrial emitters in hard-to-abate sectors to achieve their Net Zero targets whilst minimising the impact on their bottom line.


measurable.energy designs and manufactures smart, machine learning enabled power sockets that reduce the energy costs of commercial buildings by more than 20%. The sockets eliminate small power waste energy by identifying a plugged-in device that’s wasting energy and automatically turning it off. The socket also contains a light system that indicates whether the energy being supplied at the time is coming more from fossil fuels or renewable energy sources, helping to improve consumer habits.

Vector Photonics

Vector Photonics is a Glasgow-based laser developer commercialising PCSELs (Photonic Crystal Surface Emitting Lasers). This new class of laser offers high speed and power and can be manufactured at low cost. The world relies on lasers…datacentres use lasers to power their communications networks. Globally, these datacentres account for 2-3% of electricity usage and this demand is forecast to grow by up to 400% by 2030.


Every Net Zero scenario is underpinned by remarkable growth of global solar photovoltaic capacity. Above provides asset owners and operators with the tools required to optimally manage their solar plants, enabling effective fault identification and rectification to increase the quantity of green power they generate.


Sunswap has developed a zero-emission transport refrigeration unit which combines solar panels, battery storage and low environmental impact refrigerants with cloud-based remote monitoring. Compared to traditional diesel systems Sunswap’s solution can reduce emissions by up to 93% while delivering a total cost of ownership saving between 20-50%.


Indra has a vision to support global Net Zero ambitions through intelligent vehicle charging technology. The company has developed the smartest EV charger available on the market, the Smart Pro, which automatically optimises for the cleanest, cheapest electricity. In addition, its bi-directional Vehicle-to-Grid charger enables power to be stored in vehicle batteries and discharged back to the grid when needed most.

Carbon Re

Carbon Re is developing a leading edge artificial intelligence platform, Delta Zero, which uses deep reinforcement machine learning to address complex process optimisation challenges within the foundation industries. Delta Zero will enable process plants to radically reduce carbon emissions and operational costs.


tepeo’s Zero Emission Boiler (ZEB) technology is revolutionising the way we heat our homes. ZEBs are powered by electricity and work like batteries to store heat efficiently until it is needed. This decoupling of energy demand and heat supply enables affordable decarbonisation of residential heating and integration of more renewable power.
