AW-Energy harnesses the potential of ocean waves with its WaveRoller® technology. WaveRoller is an oscillating wave surge converter designed to convert kinetic energy from waves into electricity. AW-Energy aims to produce reliable, predictable electricity when it is most needed and can provide the most value. “With the technology already certified and deployed at commercial scale, we are excited to access Halliburton’s global network and engineering expertise to develop our first series of wave farms,” said AW-Energy CEO Christopher Ridgewell.

RedShift Energy uses plasma energy to produce hydrogen from hydrogen sulfide. The company’s modular technology is designed for economic applications across the petroleum value chain including unlocking trapped reserves upstream and recycling hydrogen downstream. “RedShift’s hydrogen technology has the potential to be a key feature in energy transition,” said CEO Howard Nelson. “Joining Halliburton Labs will accelerate commercialization with the help of their broad expertise, supply chain experience, and world-wide network,” added co-founder and Chief Scientist Alex Gutsol.

Renkube developed an innovative glass designed to harvest light that lowers the cost of solar energy generation. The patent-pending glass is used on solar panels to track sunlight like a sunflower but without any movement. “We are excited to be part of the Halliburton Labs accelerator. We intend to leverage Halliburton’s deep industrial expertise in manufacturing and operations as we roll out our product for commercialization,” said Balaji Lakshmikanth Bangolae, founder and CEO, Renkube.

Halliburton Labs is a collaborative environment where entrepreneurs, academics, investors and industrial labs join to advance cleaner, affordable energy.
