Free Electrons is an alliance of energy accelerators and global utilities that are committed to supporting energy entrepreneurs and start-ups to transform the energy market with next-generation ideas. Each of the nine utility partners - including ESB - is committed to co-creating future energy solutions with these start-ups. The collaborative nature and spirit of the programme has brought together partnerships between all stakeholders and innovators of the programme and will continue as pilots mature into long-term contracts and investment.

Now in its sixth year, the programme has established itself as the world-leading innovation platform for energy-related start-ups. Free Electrons addresses and solves real innovation challenges leading to new business opportunities and its quality and impact on the participating start-ups and utilities has been growing year on year.
