With the energy landscape already shifting, Germany’s firm commitment to abandoning nuclear power threw everything up in the air. Besides these shifts in the sector itself, advancing digitization is also injecting new ideas and business models into the mix. Above all, energy startups are using the freedom and scope unleashed by "Energy Wave 4.0" to develop innovative solutions and applications for integrated energy systems. As newcomers on the energy market, however, they need to establish access to customers, partners and capital to get their ideas up and running in the real world. Their predicament prompted Innoloft GmbH, based in Aachen, to join forces with the Energieloft innovation network to create an ecosystem to accelerate innovations related to energy, mobility and smart cities.
The forum will keep users bang up-to-date with the latest innovations and players on the market, announce opportunities for business and product development and encourage collaborations between established companies, other startups and investors. Energieloft will be vigorously pursuing its networking brief during HANNOVER MESSE 2018. It will also be participating in the Young Tech Enterprises Energy program in its role as a cooperation partner of Deutsche Messe and showcasing the potential and benefits of its digital ecosystem for scouting innovations and startups.
