Glasgow-based renewable energy pioneer, Katrick Technologies will be attending Expo 2020 Dubai and pitching with venture capital firm Greenbackers on March 23, 2022 as part of its climate tech tour. Katrick Technologies will present its unique wind power generation technology. The event aims to drive investment into cleantech by connecting investors with technology innovators to bring new products to the market and support global decarbonisation.
Katrick Technologies is rapidly developing a reputation as a notable disruptor in the green power industry. With a recent feature in the PwC UK Net Zero Future50 report, and a key role in an award-winning partnership with cloud computing company iomart, Katrick is generating global interest for its innovative carbon neutral technologies.
Katrick Technologies focuses on providing cost-effective innovations that are easy to implement on a large scale to maximise their potential for power generation and decarbonisation. The start-up has developed revolutionary new wind panels which offer a flexible alternative to traditional wind power and have the potential to generate 22,000-kilowatt hour (kWh) of clean electricity per annum.
Its passive cooling system for data centres has also shown significant energy-saving results in recent trials on a project with iomart which was awarded the Best Use of Emerging Technology at the 2022 Digital City Awards.
Katrick Technologies co-founders Karthik Velayutham and Vijay Madlani will be attending the expo from March 21 to 27, 2022 and will be pitching their wind panels with Greenbackers as part of their latest climate tech event.
