Green-Tech expertise in program form: ACCELERATE To the program



The prize for energy transition startups goes into the fourth round in 2022!

Together with our innovation partner, EWS Schönau, we are looking for startup pioneers to drive the energy transition forward. In line with the EWS philosophy, we are not looking for technical innovation only, but also for solutions that enable and empower other people to shape the energy transition. If this applies to your startup, you have already founded it and the prize money gives you a decisive kick, then apply and MakeItMatter! Ideally, you have already brought your product / solution to market, but that is not a prerequisite.

The prize money is donated from the EWS Sonnencent funding program. 2022 there were three prices donated to the following startup teams:

  1. Price and 16.000 €: PV2+
  2. Price and 13.000 €: RABOT CHARGE
  3. Price and 11.000 €: WeDoSolar
