The U.S. Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter (USGBC-LA) has opened applications for a major new initiative: the Net Zero Accelerator.

The goal of the program: to identify viable net zero building technologies, position them for success, and accelerate their market entry in the greater Los Angeles region. The program will focus on pilot-ready innovation that helps make zero carbon, zero energy, zero water, and zero waste buildings a reality. The accelerator will source companies—domestic and international—with an emphasis on promotion and placing pilots with building partners at the end of the program.

Technology focus areas include Decarbonization, Integrated Renewables, Energy Efficiency, Resiliency, Waste Reduction and Diversion, and Water Recycling and Conservation. The program is free to selected applicants, with no equity participation required.

The six-month accelerator is expected to be highly competitive and includes:

— High-impact acceleration services with industry experts, focused on results.

— Sustained, professional marketing and storytelling through a leading and respected organization to amplify awareness of cohort companies and technologies.

— High potential for pilots with partner building sites, with leads and business development opportunities from committed owner-operators.

— Peer-to-peer learning, networking, and talent sourcing opportunities.
