InnoEnergy is a SE company, incorporated in The Netherlands in 2010 by key players of the energy field with the vision that innovation and entrepreneurship in Sustainable Energy, properly leveraged by the knowledge triangle integration (research, academia and business), could become the key enabler of the energy transition. They shared the belief that the impact of innovation can be higher if actors that typically work independently, start working together pursuing common objectives.

Moreover, InnoEnergy was selected by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) as the only “Knowledge and Innovation Community” in Europe in Sustainable Energy, becoming the only accredited pan-European innovation network in Europe that pursues having an impact through innovation in the Energy sector.

  1. Education: offering programs that create the future game changes in the energy sector. Today, more than 500 students have graduated from our Master’s School and we are supporting 140 PhD students.
