Supporting energy startups worldwide

We connect the global energy startup ecosystem and accelerate the uptake of disruptive energy solutions.



New energy technologies are disrupting the world’s energy systems, powered by innovations in renewables, energy efficiency, software, and financing mechanisms. The shift promises to unlock trillions in wealth and economic development, divert the worst impacts of climate change, and empower millions of people who currently don’t have access to energy.

Startups are the engine driving this shift and our mission is to support thousands more.


We provide an overview of all support programs available for energy startups around the world and help you navigate the global clean energy startup ecosystem.
