Start Up Energy Transition


Start Up Energy Transition (SET) is an international platform supporting innovation in energy transition powered by the German Energy Agency (dena) in cooperation with the World Energy Council.

It is comprised of the annual SET Award, SET Tech Festival and a global network. The initiative brings together the most outstanding international start-ups in the field of energy together with key stakeholders in the energy sector. Through the help of our global network, we received nearly 1000 start-up applications from 88 countries for our SET Award in just two years.

The submissions are evaluated by a prominent SME analyst group, which, together with the high-level jury (comprised of high-level individuals in the energy and climate sector), identifies the Top 100 list of the most innovative, savvy and promising start-ups. The high-level jury also selects the 15 finalists for the Award, who you can meet and engage with at the Tech Festival on April 09. 2019.

The Tech Festival will take place at the historic Postbahnhof location in Berlin. The one-day event allows participants to access the best start-ups and outstanding entrepreneurs in the field of energy solutions, in addition to innovation-driven corporates, investors, and public organizations leading the energy transition. The SET Award Ceremony will be held following the Tech Festival at a reception hosted by the “Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue” (BETD). Over 1.000 delegates from 80 countries will take part in this Federal Government conference.


Start-ups may apply until 31.01.2019

Tech Festival will take place on 09.04.2019
