    National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy (NICCE) is writing a story and
    We are creating the “Official” National Capitol Clean Energy Incubator, a regional project between Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina
    We are rapidly prototyping clean energy technologies and focusing on distributed modeling and simulation, creating the nation’s largest center in the world
    We are now drawing on a highly skilled workforce prepared to meet the nation’s toughest challenges
    We are designing, building and executing a state-of-the-art commercialization facility (50,000-100,000 square feet)
    We are building a University network utilizing distance education
    We are growing a mentor protégé model for small business andlarge business to partner together to win new work
  • 17. A Vision for the National Capitol Region
    A nationally coordinated clean energy commercialization effort is currently being developed and Virginia is poised to be the first state in the nation centrally focused on modeling and simulation in the energy and the environment. The realization of energy technology commercialization is being accomplished with these tools and new models.
    Goal: Create the National Capitol Clean Energy Incubator with a focus on “energy” and the “environment” and the world’s largest modeling and simulation center focused on:
    Climate forecasting and economic impact modeling
    Distributed mathematical modeling and simulation
    Sensor development
    Energy efficiency (smart grid, building efficiency, materials)
    Biomass and biofuels development
    Water management, monitoring and problem solving
    A World Data Center on Energy is under development.

    University and Research Support
    NICCE tests distributed learning tools and uses training models like serious games to teach STEM;
    NICCE is attracting researchers from around the world creating a climate for research and innovation;
    The “Energy and Environmental Workforce Center of Excellence,” provides human capital as a feeder for defense firms within the NICCE’s consortium;
    Community colleges provide certificates in specific energy domains, capturing career switchers now laid off
    Focus is training a workforce with specific niche skills and bringing the people to the incubator’s core defense partners

    Where will the incubator be developed?
    We believe the incubator needs to be located near Washington DC but this has not been confirmed. We are looking at twenty site locations
    We believe the incubator needs to be in the heart of the defense corporate network
    We believe the incubator needs to be in a high tech location
    We believe the incubator needs to be on a Metro line
    We believe the incubator needs to be near an airport
    We believe the incubator needs to have recreational activities, shopping and night life with full onsite services for youth working around the clock
    We believe the Dulles Corridor could meet our needs-next slides highlight a few researched locations

    Why Clean Energy Companies Fail
    Not a level playing field
    Don’t know the game
    Rules are complex for grants-cost share, in-kind, program management and rate structures
    Technology focused not market focused
    Infrastructure for clean tech is in its infancy
    2008 World Bank says international is the opportunity
    Big energy just now getting engaged
    Elite groups participating and entrance standards high (national labs, Battelle, universities, utility companies and some VCs now)
    Lack of product maturation and market validation
