How you can benefit

Through hundreds of interactions with City staff, clean technology companies expressed the need for lab and office space to prototype clean technology solutions like clean energy, energy efficiency and electric vehicle infrastructure.

If you are a San Jose clean tech business, you can get perks like:

  1. Temporary use of City property, equipment, and data.
  2. Financial assistance.
  3. Exemption from certain city policies.

Companies can apply, thanks to the Demonstration Partnership resolution.

Why it's a leading policy

San Jose is the first city in the nation to have this type of program.


To create jobs and mutually beneficial partnerships between the City and clean tech companies.

Who can take action
