Opportunity to run a pilot project with Shell Ventures

Hi! I am looking for startups active in the energy sector for a business opportunity to run a pilot project with Shell Ventures or to enter the Game Changer programme.

Together with Get in the Ring, Rockstart and YES!Delft, Shell is looking for startups and scaleups active in the energy transition. The goal of the New Energy Challenge is to help support the transition to an energy economy with a lower use of hydrocarbon by working together with innovative companies active in this field.

Over the coming decades, the world will need much more energy to meet the growing demand, to enable a decent quality of life for people across the globe. However, we also need to produce all that energy while emitting less CO2. Our industry could play a crucial role in powering this progress. Therefore, we need to accelerate new business models and enable new innovative technologies. We invite start-ups and scale-ups to present us their ideas and –if there is a match- we want to work together with the companies with the most promising initiatives.

You can find more info at: or give me a call at 0646081753. Let me know if you need more info!

Utilize residual heat of data centers

Amsterdam builds more and more data centers. These data centers use up alot of electricity, but also provide a lot of heat. The innovation team of the City of Amsterdam is gathering information concerning how we can use this residual heat for both existing and new buildings. And now we're asking the ASC community for input!

How can we utilize the heat data centers produce? Do you have some inspiring ideas or examples?

Kind regards,

USA school teacher: opportunities to learn about Dutch climate mitigation/adaptation strategies Jun28-July7

Hello! I'm hoping (at the very last minute) to connect with some folks who might be interested in sharing their work with me through a brief informal tour or interview while I'm here in the Netherlands for the next 8 or 9 days. I'm here with the help of a small, self directed grant to develop a unit of study for my students in Chicago that will inspire them to better understand climate change as a global issue with which they can engage in creative ways in their local context. I'm interested in more or less any and all work happening around Amsterdam (or Utrecht, where I'll be from July 3-July 5, or Wageningen, July 5- July 7) that relates to the effects of climate change or mitigation/adaptation strategies. This could include any climate relevant public or private work in the electricity, transportation, building, industrial, agricultural, tech, or education sectors. For example, if you are involved with a start up that does circular economy work that reduces emissions, have a perspective to share on regional transportation, know something about zero emission architecture, or work in education and are interested in developing collaborations in terms of sustainability/climate curriculum, I'm interested in hearing from you and (in an ideal world) chatting for 30 minutes or an hour. My students are typically low income, racial minority teenagers who I believe need to be empowered to make the future as much as their economically well off and culturally "mainstream" peers. Most of my students are also soon to be voting eligible citizens of the USA, which seems relevant. Anyway, I appreciate you considering my vague request! I am of course thrilled about the wealth of resources available through Smart City Amsterdam (including the very cool new Amsterdam Innovation Tour app), and I've booked, for example, a standard tour on Friday through architour. But unfortunately my dates of travel did not align with WeMakeTheCity, the ASC Open House is not happening this Friday, and many of the other tour options are out of my price range as an individual traveling on a small grant. Thanks for any and all input. Cheers!
