Greentown Labs Enters Partnership to Support Offshore Wind Startups
NEC Member Greentown Labs has partnered with Vineyard Wind to develop an accelerator program for offshore wind innovation.
Based in Somerville, MA, Greentown Labs is a clean tech incubator, and oversaw its first clean energy program launch in 2015,. Through this partnership, Greentown will support startups working to develop offshore wind and marine mammal technology. An oft-overlooked facet of offshore wind, marine data-monitoring technology—which provides important information on environmental conditions necessary for offshore wind projects—is integrated into the partnership. The partnership will also provide, “resources, training, and expert mentorship” to startups. Greentown’s previous launch programs focused on areas such as solar, hydrogen, and digital energy.
“We’re thrilled to add Vineyard Wind to our network of launch partners, and we know offshore wind presents a tremendous opportunity to bring more clean energy to homes and businesses across the Northeast region and beyond,” said Greentown Labs CEO Emily Reichert. “We’re confident that by working closely with Vineyard Wind, we’ll be able to help deploy solutions to advance the industry and protect the environment.”
The Council is proud to see Greentown Labs fostering economic opportunity and a sustainable future for all. Read more in the MV Times.
