InnoEnergy calls for next innovation in sustainable energy

InnoEnergy is calling on energy innovators to apply for its 2017 Investment Round prior to the 7 April deadline.

InnoEnergy is searching for the next big innovation in sustainable energy. In addition to funding, the investment round aims to shorten the commercialisation journey for European businesses by connecting successful applicants to InnoEnergy’s network of industry partners.

Diego Pavia, CEO at InnoEnergy, said: “A sustainable energy sector needs new products, new solutions and new services. Taking a clean energy idea from a light bulb moment to a ‘powering-the-light-bulb moment’ is an exciting process, but transforming a concept into a successful, commercial product can be a long and complex journey. Too often, promising ideas falter because they’ve got funding, but no broader support.

“At InnoEnergy, we’re hunting for groundbreaking technologies with a strong business case that need investment and backing to make them a reality. By leveraging our European footprint, successful applicants will have access to a thriving supply side, connecting projects with start-ups, industry and researchers to provide complementary skills and resources; and a thriving demand side, connecting commercially viable products with markets and customers, to provide early adopters and industrialisation support.”

The investment round is open until 7 April 2017. Businesses can find out more and apply here.
