About Williams’ CVC Program
The CVC program is an outgrowth of Williams’ New Energy Ventures, a business development group focused on commercializing innovative technologies, markets and business models that include clean hydrogen, solar, carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) and next generation natural gas.
Since establishing the CVC, Williams has committed approximately $50 million to stay on the leading edge of emerging trends and innovations at the forefront of the energy transition. In addition, the company is evaluating over 300 startups for investment consideration.
Context Labs has created a data platform to ingest environmental and pipeline data from a multitude of sources and certificate carbon intensities for delivery pathways, from the wellhead to the end use for the molecule. Read more.
Aurora Hydrogen has created a novel reactor using microwave energy, to take natural gas feedstock and produce purity hydrogen and elemental carbon products, resulting in zero GHG emissions and best-in-class energy efficiency. Read more.
Orbital Sidekick utilizes hyperspectral imaging to identify and quantify GHG emissions, vegetation health, and potential pipeline leaks – all from dedicated satellites that are able to monitor both individual plants and interstate pipeline systems. Read more.
Longpath Technologies utilizes 360-degree high frequency laser combs mounted on towers to observe regions in the oilfield for GHG emissions, providing what they aptly call “the 5G for the oilfield”. Read more.
