Pöyry supports Start Up Energy Transition Awards 2018
The global energy industry is currently in a stage where traditional business models are being disrupted and sustainable energy solutions need to be defined. Therefore, it is essential to listen to innovative ideas and monitor current trends in the industry. Pöyry Energy Consulting is supporting the Start Up Energy Transition and will be taking part in this year's SET Tech Festival and the SET Award Ceremony.
Start Up Energy Transition is a leading platform supporting innovation in energy transition. SET is implemented with the conviction that sustainable energy solutions and mitigating climate change is directly linked to a bridge between inventive business models and political will. It is comprised of the annual SET Award, SET Festival and the global network of innovators. The SET Award is an international competition for start-ups and young companies worldwide who are working on ideas affecting global energy transition and climate change.
The three most promising start-ups in each category will pitch their business ideas at the annual summit, the SET Tech Festival, which brings this impressive network of innovators together on April 16-17th, 2018. The Award process and collaboration with the innovators' network will allow for the systematic identification of the most promising innovation ventures around the world and ensure that the scope, time frame and success factors to deliver key innovation areas are understood and part of the global energy dialogue.
Robert Schwarz, Principal at Pöyry Energy Consulting will again this year be taking part in the event, "for energy utilities it is essential to monitor recent developments and stay ahead of the game while start-up companies are looking for investors. Connecting them both will help to move forward with the best ideas for cleaner energy." In order to link up entrepreneurs with utilities and venture capital investors, Pöyry consultants have developed the Pöyry Innovation Link, a marketplace evaluated energy ecosystem. For SET Award start-ups, Pöyry will offer free access to the Pöyry Innovation Link.
