TransTech sliderMorgantown, W.Va. – TransTech Energy Research and Business Development, a program at West Virginia University, is seeking people with start-up companies or commercially promising projects who would like to present a pitch at its fall conference.

The TransTech Energy Business Development Conference, being held on Nov. 5-6, 2015 in Morgantown, W.Va., promotes new companies that can provide solutions to energy, environmental and economic development challenges, such as creating new jobs and more competitive industries.

The deadline to apply to make a pitch is September 14, 2015. There is no charge to apply to pitch.  If chosen to participate, there is a nominal registration fee and a chance to win monetary prizes at the conference.

During the conference, there will be opportunities to network with industry executives, members of the economic development community, academic and national laboratory researchers, and other energy entrepreneurs.

Start-up companies and commercially promising projects should satisfy some aspects of the following criteria:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions/improve efficiency/diversify energy supply;
  • improve industrial competitiveness, increase demand for advanced manufacturing processes;
  • generally available for implementation in the near term yet may present research challenges to achieve greater effectiveness in the future;
  • enable energy-intensive companies and fossil energy industries to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency.
