Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0

A hybrid, high-pace, non-equity dilutive accelerator for mature startups.

Centered on the needs of advanced startups scaleups and SMBs, the AWS Clean Energy Accelerator (CEA) program is designed to spur co-innovation and acceleration through energy partnerships with the world’s largest Energy, Utilities and Industrial companies.

Leading organizations will commit to working with clean energy and climate tech innovators on solving their decarbonization challenges. Industry and thought leaders from around the world will mentor on topics of energy, climate, digital technology, investment, public policy, innovation, advanced research and more.

Energy & Climate Lab

A technology and collaboration lab to advance customer trial capabilities

A broader set of early-stage (pre-seed) startups and scaleups solving wider climate challenges will be selected to join part of the accelerator under the AWS Energy & Climate Lab - a technology and collaboration initiation module that advances preparedness to drive customer trial capabilities, investment competitiveness, digital maturity and engagement with industry networks.

Pre-register to virtually attend the Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 Innovation Showcase hosted during COP 28.

Innovation Showcase

We are excited to invite you to the Innovation Showcase for the AWS Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 around COP 28 in Dubai Expo, UAE. The event will feature the startups selected from our global pool of innovators from all over the world.

The Innovation Showcase will be an interactive, in-person, can’t miss event! The selected startups and innovators in the Clean Energy and Climate Tech space will exhibit their latest products and solutions. 

The event will feature presentations, panel discussions and Q&A from the accelerator startups, Amazon, private and public sectors, and leading energy companies.

Meet the 15 startups selected to take part in the AWS Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 program.
