Renewable Energy Partnering & Investment Forum
( 再生可能エネルギー提携投資フォーラム )

早期段階の投資に向けた戦略的な提携

2019年6月24日


適切な資本化と革新的な戦略は、新技術開発の重要な要素です。このフォーラムは、商業化に向けた取り組みを支える技術開発のパートナーに関心のある組織を対象としたものであり、講演やパネルディスカッションを通じて投資家や政府系金融機関が探し求めている投資対象についての見解を示します。また、企業が最新のデータを発表し、提携関係を発展させて開発プロジェクトを成功へとつなげていくためのプラットフォームとしても機能しており、主要な研究者やメーカーの幹部、官民の投資家など、技術革新のためのエコシステムを支えるさまざまな組織との代表と人脈を築く貴重な機会となっています。このフォーラムは、個別会談を行って踏み込んだ意見交換を行ったり、交渉を次の段階へと進めたりするための場を提供するものであり、メインカンファレンスでの講演やパネルディスカッションを補完する役割を担っています。

8:20 Achieving Breakthrough Success in the Battery Value Chain

David Jacoby, President, Boston Strategies International

Scaling a battery venture often depends on strong strategic and financial partnerships. How can you tap into value chains that maximize the value of your product or solution and successfully negotiate strategic partnerships in that channel? Explore case studies of extended value chain strategies and the associated financial events – VC, private equity, M&A, etc. – that have accelerated certain companies’ paths to success in the battery supply chain. Learn the channel strategies that can make your company attractive to partners, and the criteria that investors use to evaluate your company and your growth strategy.

8:35 Opportunity in Energy Technology Ventures

Ricardo Angel, Managing Director, GE Energy Ventures

Mr. Angel leads venture capital investing origination for the business unit and for Energy Technology Ventures, a joint venture formed by GE, NRG Energy, Inc. and ConocoPhillips focused on investing in emerging energy technology companies. GE Energy Ventures and Energy Technology Ventures seek investment opportunities across the energy value chain, including renewables, power infrastructure and oil & gas technologies. The venture capital group is one of the most active investors in energy technology markets, with a presence in San Francisco, Boston and Tel Aviv.

8:50 Approaches to Vehicle Energy Storage and Barriers to Commercialization

Aron Newman, Contractor, Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E), U.S. Department of Energy*

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. Many of the projects making up ARPA-E’s IONICS and REFUEL programs are developing technologies for next-generation vehicle energy storage based on lithium metal batteries and carbon neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), respectively. This presentation will also discuss barriers to commercialization that includes challenges with technology development, funding, and consumer acceptance. Additional Authors: Grigorii Soloveichik, Madhav Acharya, and Mark Pouy.

9:05 Q&A

10:00 Networking Coffee Break & One on One Partnering Meetings

再生可能エネルギーの商業化に対応する革新的な技術の紹介

11:00 Charging as Fast as Refueling a Gas Car

Robert A. Rango, CEO, Enevate Corporation

Extreme fast charging batteries with high energy density can help break down barriers to higher EV adoption. Enevate develops and licenses a silicon-dominant anode cell technologies that enables 10X faster charging without compromising the EV range or energy densities, operates at low temperatures, and has increased safety. Such extreme fast charging batteries also enables lower cost EVs that fit in daily driving use.

11:15 Creating a More Efficient, Safer, Greener, and Easily Manufactured Solid-State Battery

Freidoon Rastegar, PhD, CEO, Solid State Battery, Inc.

Solid State Battery Incorporated in October 2017 in Los Angeles. The company has successfully developed a patent-pending solid-state electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries. New material lends itself to large area Battery configuration by replacing liquid electrolyte with developed Nanocomposite polymer.

11:30 The Role of Newer Higher Specific Energy Photovoltaics in Reducing Solar Packaging Weight in Vehicles, Solar Portable Battery Charging, and Energy Harvesting Microscale IoT Sensors

J. Norman Allen, CTO, NanoFlex Power Corporation

NanoFlex is developing advanced thin film GaAs solar and Organic Photovoltaics. NanoFlex has a large contract with the US Army to develop its thin film GaAs solar for soldier use. This technology can also have application on vehicles and IoT applications.

11:45 Q&A

12:30 pm One on One Partnering Meetings – Lunch on Your Own

再生可能エネルギーの商業化に対応する革新的な技術の紹介

2:10 Chairperson’s Remarks

David Deak, PhD, President, Marbex LLC, formerly of Lithium Americas Corp, and Tesla, Inc.

2:15 Ionic Materials: Opportunities in Solid State

Erik Terjesen, Senior Director, Licensing and Strategy, Ionic Materials

Ionic’s polymer electrolyte represents a major breakthrough in battery technology. By enabling the creation of batteries that are safer, cheaper, and higher performance than the current state-of-the-art, Ionic’s polymer electrolyte shatters the traditional battery design paradigm, under which safety, cost, and performance must generally be traded off against one another. We are excited to bring this technology to market with core partners in the battery industry.

2:35 Modular Energy Storage Systems in Grid and Alternative Energy Applications

Jerry Hoffman, President, Hoffman Capital and Development

This presentation will cover why energy storage makes sense in these systems, the technology changes making these systems meaningful and the roadblocks to implementing these systems. In addition, the economics and the projected time plan for implementation will be discussed.

2:55 Q&A

3:15 Refreshment Break

再生可能エネルギー貯蔵技術市場の展望と商業化の可能性

3:35 Future Investment Outlook Non-Passenger Electrified-Vehicle Market Expansion and Broad Penetration of High Power Charging Infrastructure Development

Joshua Posamentier, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Congruent Ventures

In this presentation, areas of future investment interest around non-passenger electrified-vehicle market expansion and broad penetration of high power charging infrastructure development will be discussed. What battery and balance-of-system technology needs do other EV segments drive in terms of performance and capability requirements? New solutions are needed that expand the capabilities of mobile energy storage while maintaining or improving durability, cost, and safety.

3:55 The Hidden Benefits of New Technological Advances in Energy Storage

Fernando Gómez-Baquero, PhD, CEO, BESSTECH, LLC

Emerging technologies are sometimes seen as too complex or outside of manufacturing norm. But changing manufacturing in some capacity is absolutely necessary to enable accelerated performance increases. In this talk I give examples of “hidden” benefits of emerging energy storage technologies, that seem difficult to adopt but once adopted could increase the effective utilization of the current slurry lines, reduce the costs of chemical processing, and even double plant output. Looking at these benefits, technological advances might seem less daunting and more like real opportunities that are readily scalable.

4:15 PANEL DISCUSSION: Partnering & Investing on the Convergence of Mobility, Artificial Intelligence, Energy Storage & Renewable Energies

Moderator: Joshua Posamentier, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Congruent Ventures

Jarvis Tou, Executive Vice President, Enevate

David Deak, PhD, President, Marbex LLC, formerly of Lithium Americas Corp, and Tesla, Inc.

By 2030 it is predicted that 95 percent of US passenger miles will be served by on-demand autonomous EVs owned by fleets in a business model dubbed “transport-as-a-service” (TaaS), whose market size is expected to exceed $120 billion by 2025. Discover what VCs look for in funding companies and new business strategies in a TaaS based economy and how to ready your company to participate in the upcoming mobility disruption.
