Don’t forget to get your tickets for the Start Up Energy Transition (SET) Tech Festival on the 9th of April in Berlin.
Starting a cleantech business can be a challenging. Transitioning a business to clean energy can be painful. But the benefits of doing so can be great.
Fortunately, help is at hand for those willing to seek it. And especially for those who have reason to travel to Berlin, and a relatively flexible calendar in the second week of April.
Start Up Energy Transition (SET) is an international platform powered by the now semi-legendary German Energy Agency (dena), and in cooperation with the World Energy Council. They care deeply about transitioning the world to an energy system that’s compatible with our long term future.
SET coordinates their gathering with two distinct offerings: first there’s the Tech Festival, second there’s the annual SET Award. The Tech Festival will bring together a global network of innovators shaping the future of energy to Berlin on April 9th, 2019.
The one-day event allows 800+ participants to access over 150 energy start-ups and outstanding entrepreneurs in the field of energy solutions, in addition to innovation-driven corporates, investors, and public organisations leading the energy transition.
This event creates an extra stage for new and exciting upcoming bands, alongside the staple gathering of the annual Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD). All tastes and walks of life are very welcome across the public and private parts of the energy scene.
In 2018, the BETD was home to more than 2.000 participants from over 90 countries, including 40 ministers and state secretaries and more than 100 high-level speakers. Areas of attention and action included investment flows, integration (of shiny new cool bits of tech into less shiny, more ‘seasoned’ bits of infrastructure); and long-run visions.
All of this gets combined (a bit like a wonderful orchestra and really great rock n’ roll) with some dynamic innovation and digital transformation.
Then, after the Tech Festival, the SET Award Ceremony is held. Previous ceremonies have been described by some as one of the most fun evening receptions in the energy sector calendar. Don’t miss out! Tickets online here.
