Humankind is facing its biggest challenge ever: climate change. The latest IPCC report of August 2021 has made it clear that climate action is more urgent than ever before. What could first seem like an obstacle impossible to overcome can actually turn into immense opportunity: the opportunity to join forces and unite, to rethink business models and to restructure the way we produce and consume. Political, economic and civil stakeholders should be working hand in hand towards one goal: innovate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions drastically.
To do so, a focus should be set on one of the key elements of limiting global warming: the energy transition. The energy industry needs more innovative solutions that can be scaled at a rapid pace. That is why, at Start Up Energy Transition, we believe in a fruitful and cooperative dialogue between energy start-ups, corporates, investors and policymakers.
The SET Tech Festival is born out of this belief. The event will not only give participants access to the most innovative start-ups in the field of energy solutions, but will also connect them with innovation-driven corporates, investors, and public organizations looking to foster the energy transition. This year, our energy network will have the opportunity to rethink the industry through the theme of circular economy.
The SET Tech Festival 2021 will be streamed on 20 October, 2021 from Berlin.
The day will be filled with interactive workshops, energizing networking opportunities and exciting panel discussions. We will close the event with the SET Award Ceremony where we will welcome inspiring guests from the climate and energy sector, and announce the winning start-ups of the five SET Award categories.
SET Tech Festival in numbers:
- 900+ participants
- 200+ energy start-ups
- 30+ energy accelerators
