Project Energy2b is an innovation stimulating initiative that targets university students and encourages them to turn energy innovation ideas into reality via new business start-ups.
The project’s infrastructure will be facilitated by a newly created web platform, which will enable idea competitions at national and European level. Ten local competitions for energy innovation ideas are offered on the Energy2b platform in five European countries (UK, PT, PL, SI and BG). The best energy innovations are selected for boot camp and follow up services given by energy / business planning / investment experts in the five countries. In parallel, 2 European idea competitions are organized, leading to the creation of energy innovations that have the potential to be funded for start-up.
