Oil & Gas Cleantech Challenge Announces Call for Applications
Market-driven showcase connects innovative technology solutions to the oil & gas industry
The OGCC provides an opportunity for direct, high-value connections between leaders in the oil and natural gas industry and innovative renewable technology solutions. Companies selected for participation in the program have the opportunity to present directly to industry representatives and the winning company receives a cash prize.
