Energy startup accelerator CLT Joules has named four new companies to its 2015 program, adding to the 11 firms that have taken part since 2014.
The new companies include:
▪ Atom Power LLC, a hardware and software power distribution company that is staffed mostly by UNC Charlotte engineering graduates.
▪ Base Trace, which detects leaks for nuclear power plants and is based in the Research Triangle Park in Durham.
▪ eosMYCO Inc., founded by another UNCC grad and focused on coal ash remediation that extracts minerals and metals from ash and turns the rest into inert aggregate.
▪ iRestore, whose technologies help electric and gas utilities detect outages and more quickly restore power.
The year-long Joules program connects companies to mentors, infrastructure support, funding sources and prospective customers. Companies have attracted almost $9 million in funding and generated 66 jobs to date.
