Free Electrons nominated GreenCom Networks as one of 12 participants in their program. The Free Electron program is set up by leading international utilities that combine a customer base of 73 million end customers.
The utilities selected the most innovative startups out of 450 companies across the globe to work closely together on the topics for the future of energy. Joint deep-dive sessions into challenges, technology and implementations will be held in Silicon Valley, Portugal, Ireland and Singapore over the next six months.
