The challenges of the energy transition are manifold – and so are the solutions. With digitalisation and storage being the backbone of a New Energy World, SolarPower Europe is looking for the brightest business ideas in this field. At the Digital Solar & Storage 2018 Conference, SolarPower Europe will present the first Digital Solar & Storage 2018 Start-up Award.
Who can apply?
The competition will be open to early start-ups active in the field of digitalization and solar storage. The companies applying need to fit the following requirements:
- less than 10 employees;
- VC-backed/Pre-profit (not yet making revenues from product sales).
The competition will open on 18 September and close on 31 October. A longlist with 8 companies will be published on 7 November and a shortlist of 4 companies will be published on 15 November. The voting will take place at the Digital Solar & Storage conference on 4 December, followed by the award ceremony. The prize money is 5000 euros.
How to Apply?
