This is the business model for NICCE. NICCE and our partners together, create the leading clean energy commercialization organization in the world. In our network is 350 clean tech partners (CEOs, COOs, CFOs and other executive business leaders). We match inventors with investors and we bring technology to market. Our team is a professional commercialization team with more than 50 years combined experience. We are seeking locations for commercializing these technologies -localities that want to "make a deal" and who can offer good incentives beyond cheap space and shared fax machines/admin...we seek next generation business deals. For more information on who we are, review this document and give us a call.

  • 2. The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    How did the story begin?
    Virginia Tech University started the program with funding from the Virginia Tobacco Commission.
    The program grew out of a small regional center called Riverstone Technology Park.
    The program soon went statewide and then national.
    Virginia Tech’s program leader, Dr. Inge of Great Falls Virginia, spun the program into a public-private venture called NICCE. NICCE is an acronym for the National Institute.
  • 3. The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    What is the Goal?
    Create the National Capitol Clean Energy Incubator, located in the Washington, DC area.
    Create the world’s largest physical modeling and simulation center focused on clean energy and environmental technology.
    Create the “epicenter” of clean energy commercialization and develop a Mid-Atlantic corridor of clean tech activity in the USA.
  • 4. The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    What are the objectives?
    Identify disruptive clean energy technologies that can commercialize within 36 months and bring them to market;
    Find communities that want to help these technologies grow-called “green incubators of the future” and develop these physical assets; and
    Find customers for the technology and help make the “sale” by providing value-added to the process, such as modeling and simulation services.
  • 5. The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    What are the challenges and the opportunities?
    • Linking inventors to investors
    • 6. Finding the customers
    • 7. Identifying the markets
    • 8. Validating the technology
    • 9. Providing vision to communities
    • 10. Securing the talent
    • 11. Identifying the assets to support the process-”green incubators of the future” that provide a “differentiator”
  • The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    What does the process look like?
    We use a supply chain of value added resellers to identify the customers;
    We partner with the best integrators in the world, mainly defense integrators and optimizers;
    We provide modeling and simulation services with the national energy laboratories and universities; and
    We provide sophisticated business services such as company valuations and licensing.
  • 12. The National Institute for the Commercialization of Clean Energy
    What technology are we developing?
    Biofuels (algal coal, barley, sun flower, sweet sorghum, waste products to fuel)
    Energy Efficiencies (smart insulation, smart grid and next generation electronic technology- semiconductor, home energy management software and devices, new building materials)
    Wind (off shore, new turbine designs, new materials)
    Solar (new materials, manufacturing)

    How many companies are in our network?
    We started growing our partnership network in 2008. Today, we have 340 companies in the network and most of these are expanding and growing their businesses, despite this poor economy. The 340 companies we work with are networked through their board members, the President, CEO, CFO, COO, CTO and Vice President levels.
