Introducing the Eagle Labs EnergyTech initiative

Radical innovation is needed to vastly improve how we harvest and consume energy for the future.

To help accelerate the development of the UK EnergyTech ecosystem, our EnergyTech initiative will bring all players together: startups, incumbents and industry institutions into a safe, innovative space to level up. Startups will learn domain expertise and incumbents will learn new technology, skills, culture and practices to deliver new business models, products and dynamics that lead us to a better future.

What we’re aiming to do and how

We will expose company leaders and startups founders to operators from the technology industry or X tech industries which have already been deeply affected by technology, like banking. In particular, we invite current operators to share their experience in the following four areas:







Over 12 months, monthly meetups, mentorship and executive training will teach new playbooks and strategies for innovation and digital product building. How? By mapping across the lessons learned from other X tech verticals and from the Venture Capital (VC) and technology industry.

Our Eagle Labs offer full-service design capabilities. As problems and opportunities are highlighted these teams will be there for startups and corporates to build, measure, learn and repeat. Likewise, investments, partnerships and acquisitions will be encouraged and supported on both sides by the team. As another large organisation operating in a highly regulated, heavily disrupted sector we are keen to share our own experiences as a practitioner rather than as consultants.

We’ve lived and are still living and evolving through many disruptions in the financial industry. What we’ve learnt has helped us create six growing industry vertical programmes: LawTech, HealthTech, AgriTech, AviationTech, Gaming and CreativeTech. Now in partnership with CodeBase, the UK’s largest technology incubator, we’re mapping this experience and success of these industries to EnergyTech.

Our partners

We’re partnering with CodeBase, the largest tech incubator in the UK, and Opportunity North East, who are driving transformational change in north east Scotland’s economy and developing and delivering projects to accelerate regional economic diversification and energy transition.


Who this initiative will help

We’re bringing together the knowledge and experience from all across the business ecosystem: big corporates, tech natives, startups and deep domain expertise to accelerate industry innovation.

Simply put, we’re a launch pad for EnergyTech professionals with the ideas to change the way we do things. So, whether you’re a startup or a corporate, our Labs offers entrepreneurs, individuals and businesses co-working and office space, innovative tools, curated events, up to date EnergyTech insights as well as the right network to innovate and scale.



Your big ideas need the right people to launch them

Build, learn and scale faster. Whether it’s help with unit economics, go to market strategies, or finding market fit, our partners, network and like-minded entrepreneurs are there to support you.



We help big companies think small

Learn important lessons from the startup world when it comes to dynamic thinking, hyper-collaboration and keeping it simple. Exposure to the Startup and Technology world will map across the playbooks you're unfamiliar with.

We also help you to connect with the best EnergyTech startup talent and introduce you to emerging technologies.
