(Greenbiz) Putting cleantech innovations to the test

After completing technical validation in the laboratory, clean tech startups need an opportunity to showcase that their technology will be a viable solution through demonstration projects. The Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator has facilitated several demonstration projects for companies at NREL, Wells Fargo and Danforth Center facilities.

“The Danforth Center has facilitated a demonstration project for Innovation Incubator portfolio company Aker Technologies with early validation of technology that automates the crop-scouting process,” states the article by Trish Cozart, director, Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator. “With help from the Incubator and the Danforth Center, Aker has since expanded its imaging methods to also be able to detect plant diseases for more targeted, reliable crop assessments to improve profitability and increase yields.”
