Startup 4 Climate for the energy transition

An important step towards a sustainable future is to reduce emissions from the energy we use. There is no shortage of human innovation and smart solutions, but sometimes something more is needed for good ideas to take off. That is why we at Ellevio are arranging the Startup 4 Climate competition together with the electricity supplier GodEl.

The innovation competition is aimed at young companies with innovations that can accelerate the energy transition and contribute to limiting global warming.

The energy transition includes initiatives that promote the transition from current energy and transport systems to solutions that are smarter, more efficient and have the ability to reduce humanity's negative impact on planet Earth.

The winning startups in Startup 4 Climate are awarded a prize of SEK 2 million that will help catalyze the ideas and thus contribute to the energy transition.

Why an innovation competition?

As two of the Swedish energy market's most well-known players, we and GodEl have a great responsibility to shape the industry's future. We want to promote the transition to a truly sustainable energy system, but we cannot do it alone.

Innovation and broad engagement are important to curb the global climate crisis. With Startup 4 Climate, we want to contribute to developing more initiatives that can enable us to achieve our common goals for a sustainable future.
