Together for a Sustainable Energy World

Start-ups are key drivers in creating a future-oriented energy world. By developing technological and digital solutions, they help make tomorrow’s solar products a reality and contribute to a renewable 24/7 energy supply. Innovative strength, agility, boldness and the development of products that are tailored to the market make start-ups a crucial building block of the energy transition. Approaches to decarbonization, the optimization of generation technologies and energy consumption, the promotion of smart grids and software solutions for energy management play a significant role. They are the reason for the energy industry’s great interest in start-ups. Alternative financing models such as crowdfunding or impact investing also enable start-ups to mobilize capital for the transformation of our energy system from unconventional channels.

The smarter E Europe promotes the contribution that start-ups make to the energy sector by offering them an exclusive, sponsored exhibition area and a host of marketing opportunities. We want to promote tomorrow’s newcomers with the right contacts, financing and cooperation opportunities from established companies and industry players, as well as by increasing the visibility of their products.

What Former Participants Say
Exhibitor Voices

"Joining the Start-up Area of The smarter E Europe 2023 was a great decision. We made many qualified contacts in the real estate industry and established partnerships with PV installers. Our booth was extremely busy, so we had one conversation after another. We also learned a lot about the latest developments in the market at that time. Our company has made great strides since then. The number of employees has tripled and we were able to secure 2.7 million euros in seed funding. Our customer base and growth have also tripled."

Jörn Kruff, Sales and Project Manager, metergrid GmbH

Exhibitor Voices

„When we first exhibited in the start-up area at The smarter E Europe 2022 and won the ees AWARD all in the same year, this marked an important milestone for our company: the transition from being a newcomer to the battery storage market to becoming an established player. It helped us to solidify the presence of our award-winning product, the Voltfang Industrial 1.0, in the European C&I market and make scaling our first series production a success."

Lucas Jonas, Head of Product & Business Development, Voltfang

Exhibitor Voices

"The smarter E Europe 2023 was exactly the right fit for us. Having attended and tested many different trade shows, we know that, as the leading exhibition for charging solutions and electromobility, The smarter E Europe has the clear lead. It is where we meet the right contacts and build our network. As a supplier of firmware for charging stations and the initiator of EVerest, a globally leading open source project, we depend on an extensive network and a knowledgeable expert audience. Long story short: We are sure that this year, we will take another leap forward by attending The smarter E Europe."

Dr. Marco Möller, CEO, Pionix GmbH

Exhibitor Voices

"Our participation at the Start-up Area of The smarter E Europe 2023 was fantastic. We connected with over 200 potential customers, showcasing how our innovative digital tools empower significant cost savings. The in-depth interactions we had highlighted the valuable role our solar development platform plays in digitalizing solar plant construction, operations, and drone thermography. Our platform has now grown exponentially, with several large corporations placing their trust in us. We look forward to participating in 2024 as well."
