Let’s drive Green Hydrogen forward together

Are you trying to change the future? We are.

We are IMI Critical Engineering, and through our IMI-X challenges, we are working on innovating and incubating Green Hydrogen technologies for a better world.

If you are a start-up developing technologies in this area, and you are looking for support, resources, and input, so that you can accelerate your progress, then this opportunity could be for you.

Work with our teams. Be part of the IMI-X Green Hydrogen Challenge and take a chance to change the future.

Collaborating and combining our capabilities is how we’ll achieve change, together.

IMI-X Green Hydrogen challenge areas

What ideas are you developing to optimise electrolyser integration with renewable power, reduce electrolyser power consumption and waste, and maximise output and lifecycle?

Advanced electrolysis stack technology

What solutions are you looking at to make electrolysis consistently more efficient and cost-effective?

Hydrogen storage and transportation

How are you planning to store and transport hydrogen safely, sensibly, and cost-effectively?

Hydrogen containers

Breakthrough innovations in low carbon hydrogen

What alternative solutions are you proposing to produce hydrogen with low to zero carbon emissions at a competitive cost?

How we can support you

Working with IMI Critical Engineering and the IMI X team can provide:

Supply chain access
Manufacturing capability
Project management expertise
IMI brand credibility, customer access, and commercial support
Potential IMI testing and development funding

How it works

Use the email address below to apply for the challenge before the closing date of 12th August.

We’ll need:

Your company name
Your name and position in the company
Your website address
Your Pitch Deck

Your pitch deck should include the following information:

The problem you’re solving, the market you’re looking at, and who you’re competing against
Details of your minimum viable product, your technology readiness level, and what differentiates your idea from others
Information about your company and team, and how you’re structured and financed
Why you want to collaborate with IMI

Your pitch deck will be assessed (see additional information), and selected applicants will be invited to talk further with relevant IMI Critical teams about your ideas and collaboration opportunities.

Successful applicants will then be chosen to work closely with IMI-X on a three-month growth accelerator programme with an aim to develop your solution to its next stage, whatever that may be and as mutually agreed between both parties.

The successful outcome

The last IMI-X Challenge – the Electrification Challenge – saw some fabulous applications to the accelerator programme.  We’re already working with Echogen and Jungle AI.

Additional information

The pitch deck submitted will help us to evaluate the potential of a future business relationship or collaboration opportunity between you and IMI. IMI is committed to treat your confidential information with the same degree of care as IMI’s own confidential information. Therefore, unless the information you provide is or becomes part of the public domain, was already in IMI’s possession, was received by IMI from an unaffiliated third party or independently developed by IMI, IMI will not use or disclose your confidential information except to the extent that this is necessary for us to evaluate the potential of a future business relationship.

In order to facilitate the next stage of discussions we will provide the successful applicants with a mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement and a draft agreement for future collaboration between you and IMI. Both agreements will be sent to you as a draft and we are happy to review and discuss those agreements with you.
