Accelerating the development of innovative clean energy companies
in Hawaii and abroad
PICHTR’s energy programs was founded in 2008 with the Hawaii Renewable Energy Development Venture (HREDV). Funded by the Department of Energy, HREDV co-funded technology demonstration projects for ten highly innovative clean energy companies. To expand its support provided to cleantech companies, in 2013, the Energy Excelerator was added to PICHTR’s energy programs. The Energy Excelerator provides connections, training, and funding to help clean energy companies execute their short-term strategies.
The Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR) is a Hawaii-based non-profit that has been a catalyst for technology development across the Pacific Rim since 1983.
PICHTR works closely with the partners listed below to carry out its mission of accelerating the development
