Clean Tech Products

Concurrent Design provides complete clean technology product engineering, design / development, and prototype fabrication services. Concurrent Design has decades of experience in engineering design development for products, manufacturing tools, or internal research and development (R&D) equipment. Our experience includes many cutting-edge technology development projects for clients in early stage product development. Many of these are venture capital funded. We provide a complete skill set for partnering with many clients who are focused on their core technologies and intellectual property development. It is common for Concurrent Design to partner with emerging technology companies or capital equipment manufacturers and represent their mechanical and electrical engineering departments during large development projects so the client may focus on their core technology.

Concurrent Design invests in the development of new clean energy products, cleantech solutions and a more sustainable world. We are solar powered. We are a founding partner in CleanTX, the leading organization for clean technology development in Texas. We are founders and sponsors of the Solar Energy Entrepreneur Network (SEEN), now part of CleanTX. We are active members in the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce Clean Energy Council.

Areas of expertise in clean energy product development include:
  • Clean technology product development
  • Clean technology process development
  • Clean technology manufacturing solutions (tools, equipment, automation, process development)
