British technology company Sunstone Systems has announced its participation in the Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV) Catalyst Program to further develop its potentially ground-breaking suite of patented surveillance and communications solutions powered by renewable energy. Sunstone Systems has developed and patented solar powered products that provide surveillance, wireless networks and satellite communications to sites around the world, irrespective of geography, terrain or environment. Importantly, Sunstone’s zero-emissions products help to reduce carbon emissions across sectors including energy, defence, construction and telecommunications.
This is not the first time that Sunstone and Chevron have worked together. Sunstone’s core product, The Solar IP CCTV System (SICS), is already being used by Chevron as well as some of the largest organisations in the energy and construction sectors. A surveillance system powered entirely by solar energy, the SICS delivers HD CCTV and telecommunications in remote, often off-grid, locations and can be deployed, and online, in minutes.
The CTV Catalyst Program was launched in 2017 to accelerate the maturation of early-stage companies that have technology potentially beneficial to the energy industry. By meeting their Catalyst Program milestones Sunstone will seek to continue their rapid growth, including the launch of new products, delivering low-carbon energy powered solutions for a wide range of applications across global markets.
Paul Schelhaas, co-founder and chief executive officer said “We are incredibly excited to join the CTV Catalyst program and accelerate our growth. Sunstone has a recognised and enviable reputation for creating robust, off-grid solutions that deliver reliable power from low carbon energy to a range of digital applications. We are delighted that our solutions-focused approach has been acknowledged by the Chevron Technology Ventures team and we look forward to continuing to work with them in this next phase of our growth.”
