The Climate Tech Companies to Watch This Month: May Series Week 2

In this new monthly series, we will be doing a weekly feature of incredible ClimateTech Startups, companies, or projects that are leading the fight against the Climate Crisis. 

We will be presenting 1 company from each of the 5 predefined main industry categories such as; EDUTECH, FINTECH, GREENTECH (including Energy and Transportation), FOOD & AG TECH, and CONSTRUTECH.

It will give you an opportunity to better understand the problem(s) they solve, the impact they are looking to have in the climate fight, and how you can potentially help them.

This initiative from Startup Basecamp aims to support founders by giving them access to networking and exposure opportunities that help them to scale and finance their Climate Tech solutions together with you.

Do not hesitate to join our collective movement by requesting your membership.

With Care,
Guillaume and the SBC TEAM

Ducky have used behavioral science to develop a platform that informs its users and gets them to change habits. The tool can be scaled to schools and organizations, allowing its employees to compete with one another. This creates institutions that have a sustainable edge over competitors.

ENERGY STORAGE STARTUPS:

3.Energy Dome


Founded:
2019, Italy, Lonate Pozzolo

Founder: Claudio Spadacini

Elevator Pitch:
Energy Dome are an energy storage company that are using CO2 to store energy through a thermodynamic process.

Problem They Solve:
Energy storage is both difficult and expensive. In order to store the energy we need, we require batteries with advanced storage capacity, which can be expensive because the battery components are stocked by few suppliers.

Impact:
Energy Dome has created a battery that is simple and therefore cost-effective. The storage process uses two thermodynamic transformations, one compression, and one expansion. This reduces the overall losses and allows for RTEs of above 75%. Energy Dome also manufactures their batteries with parts that are readily available and on the market by multiple auppliers. Each piece is already largely tested, enabling fast commercialization and a safe and reliable operation.
