SET Report – Launch Event 2021

Launch Event of the SET Report 2019 – 2021: Snapshot of the start-up energy

The global energy sector is facing many emerging challenges. Arguably, the most important and complex of these is addressing the sector’s contribution to climate change. It has also sparked the emergence of new businesses offering innovative solutions to enable the transition towards sustainable energy worldwide.

The “SET Report 2019-2021: Snapshot of the start-up energy ecosystem” aims to highlight some of these businesses as well as exciting key trends shaping the future of the sector. It also looks at the impact of the Start Up Energy Transition (SET) Award on its participants over the 2019 to  2021 period. The report has been prepared by Early Metrics in consultation with the SET team.

The SET team at the German Energy Agency (dena) is excited to invite you to the launch event of the report, where we will present the key findings from the report, and which impacts they may have for the energy sector globally.
