Start Up Energy Transition (SET) is a leading international 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.

The SET platform is comprised of the annual SET Award, SET Tech Festival and a 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. There are six different categories applicants can present their projects in.

The 2018 categories reflect the critical issues facing innovation needed for the energy transition globally. SET 2018 was launched during COP23 in Bonn at Climate Planet. The application portal opened on November 14th, 2017 and will close on January 31st, 2018.

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 next spring. This event takes place alongside the “Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue” (BETD), and welcomes participants from the private and public energy scene. The Award Ceremony will be held following the Tech Festival at a reception hosted by the BETD in the spring of 2018. Over 1.000 delegates from 70 countries will take part in this Federal Government conference.
