Globally, we are using more energy than ever before. At the same time, the significance of climate change means the world has to reduce CO2 emissions. We need innovative thinking to make today's energy go further and to find cleaner energy to take us towards a low-carbon world. Great ideas come from conversation, collaboration, partnerships; great minds coming together. Why not join us to tackle tomorrow’s energy challenges so that together we can #makethefuture today.

The #makethefuture Accelerator India Programme aims to support anyone with a bright energy idea in action. The programme will help the businesses to build a strong value proposition and enable them to access funding to scale.

The finalists will have the opportunity to attend a two day ‘Accelerator Event’ at the #makethefuture event to be held in Singapore. They will then pitch their ideas to an esteemed jury including senior leaders from Shell and Nitin Prasad, Chairman of Shell India.
