Clean Energy and Agriculture Innovation Program
Designed to grow the intersection of agriculture and clean energy, by supporting participants through a comprehensive program from ideation through to creating a business that's ready to scale.

The core elements of this program are our EnergyLab Agriculture Hackathon, Pre-Incubation and 12-month Incubation Program
A Pipeline of Programs
EnergyLab has designed the Agriculture and Innovation Program to provide a comprehensive foundation and learning environment for entrepreneurs, taking their ideas from a concept through to a scalable business.

Our goal is to stimulate new business models and technologies to support rural access to electricity. This will include a process to promote the concept of clean energy for rural areas and productive uses, generating new business ideas with a hackathon, supporting early business and technology ideas with a pre-incubation program and ultimately a year-long incubation program, which will support promising businesses and technologies.
