Our world is changing radically. Technologies of carbon capture, hydrogen, and green energy will determine whether an ecological decoupling of growth can keep climate change and resource depletion under control.
At Allied, we support revolutionary green tech projects to achieve a real impact. We believe that technological innovations, in particular, are required to solve critical environmental challenges.
That's why our unique Accelerator Programme focuses on the specific needs and challenges of technology start-ups, which typically require much more time and resources to build and, even after several years of development, are often still considered early stage by investors.
And indeed, we know from our own experience that developing great technologies is only half the battle. To make a real difference, you also need to develop your technology in a manner that evidences your development from a desktop to a full commercial and "Bankable" product, including an infrastructure that enables you to handle scalable production, international sales and commissioning, service and maintenance.
For acceptable technologies, our Accelerator Programme provides;
Fast track towards commercial deployment and export.
A financial guarantee to support your technology, which contributes to a positive corporate image and competitive advantage.
The accreditation of having a bankable technology, which reduces the operational maturity timeline usually required by lenders.
Reduce the time of costly due diligence for the project developer.
When commercialised, remove the need to provide plant performance details continually.
Reduced need to borrow expensive money to keep the plant running under demonstration status.
Project developers can use your technology in a competitive tender.
Mitigate operational track record guarantees and other critical technology issues required by the project developers' funders resulting in your technology having a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Our technology review starts with an initial in-house due diligence review of documented evidence of the plant's performance. The assessment, at no cost, determines the possibility of reaching successful commercialisation supported by guarantees through Debt Protection Insurance (DPI®). The project developer and their project will be subject to the due diligence required under the Debt Review Service when the technology is commercially deployed.
Your proposed manufacturing approach; includes achievable quality and productivity, the fabrication of all components, and ensuring that the various elements are built to comply with industry best practices in terms of materials and manufacture. The review will seek to understand the current status of your technology's performance and history, including any third-party reviews and testing regimes. Any gaps or areas of concern identified are ranked for further discussion.
Based on the completeness of the data and information provided (in English), we issue a report that summarises the acceptability of the technology, which could include a Statement of Suitability for Project Guarantees when the technology is commercially deployed.
The accreditation would not cover any variations to the original plant, and additional due diligence would be required.
