The company will work alongside existing partners bp and Equinor to support the centre’s accelerator program, providing promising start-ups with access to technology specialists and potential assistance for field trials.
TechX will accelerate 12 clean energy start-ups with focus areas ranging from digitalization, hydrogen and carbon capture utilization and storage to renewable energy and oil and gas emission reduction technologies.
In recent months ADNOC, bp, and Masdar have agreed to investigate development of clean hydrogen hubs in the UAE and the UK.
Last month ADNOC announced an initiative with GE concerning a decarbonization roadmap for power generation, which includes reducing carbon emissions from gas turbines.
TechX will start the fourth phase of its accelerator in February, with the selected start-ups undergoing a 15-week program, followed by two years of growth support.
