British technology company Sunstone Systems has announced its participation in the Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV) Catalyst Program to further develop its suite of patented surveillance and communications solutions powered by renewable energy. Sunstone Systems has developed solar-powered products that provide surveillance, wireless networks and satellite communications to sites around the world, irrespective of geography, terrain or environment. Importantly, its 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 its Catalyst Program milestones Sunstone will seek to continue its rapid growth, including the launch of new products, delivering low-carbon energy powered solutions for a wide range of applications across global markets.
