The European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot and Equinor partnered for a business acceleration event in Oslo, Norway. HELBIO was one of the companies selected to pitch and engage in in-depth discussions with Equinor corporate representatives and investors.
On 29 January 2019, HELBIO pitched its solutions for decentralized, economical, efficient and green energy supply with Prometheus 5, a Combined Heat and Power generation unit, to top Equinor representatives and had the chance to deliver a detailed presentation in an exploratory one-to-one meeting Equinor stakeholders and investors.
Speaking about the event, Kristin Aamodt, Managing Director at Equinor Technology Ventures, detailed its context and relevance: “For a start-up or SME it’s critical to get early feedback from a potential customer like Equinor. For Equinor, it enables us to tap into the most interesting innovations in the energy sector in Europe right now.”
Bjørn Kåre Viken, Vice President for Technology Collaboration at Equinor, outlined the enthusiasm and diversity of the companies he met: “I really liked the passion and the variety of ideas presented. Equinor is facing challenges today and will face new challenges tomorrow. It’s important for us to really get these good ideas and to see how we can implement them in our organization.”
We’re very happy to be selected for this event promoted by the EIC pilot. We had the chance to pitch our expertise in hydrogen production systems as well as to present our Prometheus 5, (www.prometheus5.com) a multifuel fed micro Heat and Power generating unit based on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell technology. We believe our solutions are aligned with the business of Equinor and at the event we hope to start a partnership that can help us scale-up our business in the field of Hydrogen production and Energy supply systems.
