The Center of Innovation for Energy accelerates the development of new products, ideas and business models in the Energy Ecosystem to help the State maintain a leadership position in the fields of Energy generation, transmission, distribution, storage and consumption. The bridge between research and commercialization can be challenging. The COI for Energy accelerates this process by providing direct access to research at the University System of Georgia, technical colleges and other research facilities, including Herty Advanced Materials Development Center. The One Stop Shop connects qualified businesses with representatives from over 20 state and federal agencies. Companies present their energy-related projects to the panel and leave with materials they need to streamline their start up or growth process. This is a program designed to encourage companies to incorporate their business in Georgia, by providing them with guidance and information.
