Each year the Start up Energy Transition Network, list their top 100 Start-ups in the field of Energy Transition.
Almost 450 start-ups from 80 countries competed in one of five categories to showcase their solutions to climate change, the energy transition and the future of our
very world! The 100 start-ups come from 31 countries, 18 different sectors and cover all regions of the world.
Energy generation, energy use, and everything in between – The SET100
Climate change and the energy transition are some of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced and those named in the SET100 work specifically to overcome them. While other lists purely stress innovation or business success, SET celebrates innovative start-ups that the international community of cross-sectoral experts has acknowledged to have the largest impact in energy and in the fight against climate change. Furthermore, the SET100 is uniquely focused on start-ups. This is a celebration of Innovation, of tenacity, and of companies revolutionizing the energy world.
As the graph below indicates, you can see that European startups have dominated almost every category, which is extremely positive for the future of European innovation.
What is even more pleasing to see is that 19 out of the 100 startups listed globally are alumni of the EIT's Accelerator programmes. A great achievement for our community!
