Israeli company GenCell Energy, which develops ecofriendly power solutions based on zero-emission alkaline fuel cells and green ammonia-to-energy technology, was selected as one of 15 startups to join the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0, designed to facilitate collaborations with mature startups developing breakthrough clean energy technologies.

“The groundbreaking innovations, products and solutions displayed in the previous Clean Energy Accelerator programs have offered an inspiring glimpse into the energy systems of the future, and chart a path towards accelerating decarbonization at scale,” said Howard Gefen, General Manager of Energy and Utilities, AWS. “We’re pleased to welcome GenCell Energy into the Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0, and work together to take on one of the greatest challenges of our generation.”

Rami Reshef, cofounder and CEO, GenCell Energy, said his company’s participation in the program “can help define and shape the future of clean energy innovation.”

GenCell delivers weather-resistant backup power for utilities, telecom, EV charging and other applications in 22 countries. Its hydrogen-on-demand solution provides primary power for off-grid and poor-grid sites, as well as for rural electrification.

The accelerator’s 12 weeks of virtual and in-person programming will kick off in Seattle in April. Industry and thought leaders will mentor startups and energy organizations will help them address clean energy and decarbonization challenges. AWS provides guidance in accelerating experimentation, expanding automation, and delivering deep insights by leveraging the cloud.

The Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 will culminate with the Innovation Showcase at the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 28) next November in Dubai.
