Be the change!


The SET Lab is dena’s newest format in their efforts to boost innovation in the energy sector. Supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the SET Lab provides start-ups with the opportunity to discuss the existing regulatory framework in the German energy sector with experts from dena, the responsible representatives within the ministries, and other stakeholders interested in cooperation. The goal of the SET Lab is to raise awareness about regulatory issues which hold weight for the future development of businesses and the existing regulatory framework.

The SET Lab is built upon the following steps: Roundtable DiscussionsInnovation Workshops, and a Public Event that announces the findings of SET Lab.

As the SET Tech Festival sets the stage for more than 150+ international and domestic start-ups, dena will use this great opportunity to launch the SET Lab as part of the official program of the Tech Festival on April 16th in Berlin. Start-ups interested and/or confronted with regulatory questions will have the option to contact the SET Lab team at their booth and also join the workshop during Tech Festvial.

In case you are such a start-up, you find more information and a link to register here (German only*).


*Please note that the SET Lab for now focusses on the energy market in Germany and the DACH region.
