Battery Call for start-up

Call for start-ups in electrical storage: final pitching event

On 21 March, the top start-ups in electrical storage will gather at Amsterdam’s historic Beurs van Berlage to pitch their solutions. Screened from over 200 international applicants, the 31 start-ups selected to the final will pitch their solution to a panel of specialists from academia, industry and investment. The 15 start-ups that stand out for their innovation and sound business sense will be announced winners at the event.

The global call for start-ups was launched last autumn under the umbrella of the European Battery Alliance (EBA). Of 222 applicants, 75 per cent were European, with the remaining quarter distributed throughout the world: from the African continent, Australia, Russia, Asia and the US.

The jury comprises key figures in sustainable energy: Akira Yoshino, the inventor of the lithium-ion battery; Edel Sheridan, the world-renowned researcher on electrochemical systems and batteries, and Werner Tillmetz, who has served in several executive management activities in the German electrochemical industry. From InnoEnergy, Bo Normark, Thematic Leader for Smart Grids and Energy Storage, and Matthias Machnig, the former German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, will sit on the jury among others.

The 31 finalists are assessed on all aspects of their evolution and potential: technological readiness, innovation, value proposition, business idea, addressable market size, scalability of product or service, team structure and impact potential. Among them, 11 countries and 28 cities are represented, with solutions presented in the three major fields of electrical storage: storage systems, e-mobility / transportation, and general industry applications.

This is an invitation-only event where attendees from industry and investors can gain access to the most innovative start-ups covering electrical storage applications in e-mobility and transportation, energy storage systems, and general industry. EBA250 network members are invited to attend. To register your participation, please contact InnoEnergy.
