SET Award 2022

Start Up Energy Transition Award, the prize for the most promising start-ups of the global energy transition!

Start Up Energy Transition Award 2022

Meet this year’s finalists from our five categories, each aimed at various entry points of the energy transition. At the core of these companies’ transformative energy solutions is the resolve to disrupt how we generate, distribute, and consume energy.

The fifteen SET22 finalists were selected in spring 2022 from over 360 applications from 69 countries and demonstrated their innovative solutions to our international jury of experts during the SET jury meeting and then to a broader audience at the SET Tech Festival 2022. The five winning start-ups were announced in the course of the SET Award Ceremony, live from the Heeresbäckerei in Berlin. Feel free to re-watch the inspiring evening!
