Nine EIT InnoEnergy startups are part of #SET100 by Start Up Energy Transition

Startup energy transition recently published the fifth edition of The Top 100 Start-ups of 2021 #SET100, and EIT InnoEnergy is represented by nine startups in all categories – which you will be able to see live in our upcoming event The Business Booster.

Clean energy generation

Aerones has developed innovative robotic winch systems for wind turbine blade maintenance. With a combination of a lifting system and multiple robotic arms, they provide safe, high-voltage testing methods and other optimisation methods without exposing personnel to risks.

Ecoligo enables businesses in emerging markets to use clean energy. With a fully financed solar-as-a-service solution, ecoligo makes it easy for businesses to go green and lower their energy costs. Projects are funded through crowdinvesting, enabling impact-driven individuals to fight the climate crisis with their investments.

HeatVentors developed a thermal storage solution called HeatTANK. The product is able to decrease energy costs up to 50% through the innovative process which profits from phase changing material and therefore works more efficiently than traditional water-based heat storages.

SunRoof offers custom-engineered solar roofs with high energy output and unique design. With integrated photovoltaic technology the sunroofs are generating electricity and at the same time they protect, insulate and ventilate the house.

Demand-side innovation

Energiency develops advanced artificial intelligence analytics in order to detect and visualize new energy savings opportunities for manufacturing. They provide data science analysis and a powerful application directly plugged to the customers’ smart meters.

Energy distribution & storage

Dexter offers AI-based forecasting-as-a-service to reduce imbalances on the electricity grid. Their software uses state-of-the-art digital technologies such as advanced machine learning, big data management and scalable cloud solutions to optimise the portfolio of energy retailers and advise energy utilities.

Smart mobility & transportation

DUCKT OU develops and produces internationally patented infrastructure solutions for micromobility. A single and unified solution to dock, lock and charge any micromobility vehicle that is either shared, public or private in one spot. It is the building brick of future e-hub concepts across the globe.

The GLEAM Multi-Use Bike is a three-wheel vehicle, built to transport cargo behind the driver. The bike is equipped with a strong electric engine to facilitate the transportation of heavy loads. The Dynamic Tilting Technology and the FLEX System ensure comfortable rides.

Quality energy access & SDG7

Via a scalable B2B2C approach, MPower partners with local entrepreneurs and SMEs in emerging markets to finance and distribute affordable clean energy products to households and SMEs living in urban and rural areas in emerging markets.


The SET100 is an annual compilation of the 100 best start-ups of the Start Up Energy Transition Award. It contains the most innovative and promising start-ups that make the energy transition a fundamental component of their innovation. SET100 was first launched in 2017 with the aim of offering young companies a platform to showcase their forward-looking solutions. The SET100 list offers a comprehensive collection of companies, represented both geographically and across all sectors of the clean energy field.


Start Up Energy Transition (SET) is a global innovation platform supporting innovation in energy transition. SET is implemented with the conviction that a sustainable future is directly linked to innovative business models and political will. The SET platform is powered by the German Energy Agency (dena), in cooperation with the World Energy Council.
