A new global platform aimed at connecting innovators with opportunities for development, investment and research has been announced.

The World Energy Council and the German Energy Agency (dena) are joining forces for the ‘Start Up Energy Transition’ (SET) initiative, which will promote innovation in the sector.

SET will identify the top 100 innovators in five to seven categories in the field of sustainable energy solutions, drawing on critical energy issues identified by energy leaders.

The partnership will also support co-operation between energy leaders and countries in tackling the energy trilemma and climate change challenges.

Andreas Kuhlmann, Chief Execurive of dena said: “SET will build on critical insights and create opportunities for the identification and promotion of energy system innovators and start-ups who deliver measures to achieve the energy transition through strategic partnership of the SET.”
