Joules Accelerator is pleased to welcome Hamed Heyhat, President of Smart Energy & Thermal Solutions at Honeywell, to our Board of Directors. This announcement launches an exciting new partnership between Honeywell and Joules, focused on scaling innovation in the climate tech sector through corporate collaboration.
“I strongly believe in the power of co-innovation to address the challenges the industry is facing,” Heyhat said. “The requirements of the changing landscape over the next 20 to 30 years have shown us that we must rethink the grid we have built over the last 100 years to address future needs. Everything needs to happen much faster and co-innovation will help us to involve different players in the industry to address technical, regulatory and other challenges. Together we have a much higher chance to solve our most important problem, making the world a more sustainable place for generations to come.”
Honeywell is currently scaling and commercializing industrial software and automation platforms above the standard cyber security measures, and the company believes their relationship with the market and end users, along with the resources we can provide to other partners will position them uniquely in the space, said Heyhat.
“I am very excited to join the board of directors of Joules Accelerator and am looking forward to working with the rest of the team to shape the future of the industry,” he said.
Joules Accelerator looks forward to partnering with Honeywell to accelerate decarbonization through the support and piloting of cohort innovations. Together, the two organizations will support the continued development and expansion of cleantech innovation capacity while creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs.
