Start-ups offering innovative products and services for Germany’s energy transition had the opportunity to apply for the Start-Up Energy Transition Award until 31 January 2017. The award-winners will present their projects and get the chance to network with investors, established companies and other start-ups. The award is co-funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The award ceremony will be held at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue in March 2017.

Networking will also be a major topic at the E-World Energy & Water fair. From 7-9 February 2017, start-ups will be given the opportunity to present their ideas and business models for the energy transition (please click here for the programme ). The German Energy Agency (dena) will also attend the fair and take its “dena start-up bus” to travel there with young entrepreneurs from the Berlin region.
