Call for Innovations accelerating the Energy Transition

Does your start-up offer digital and deep tech innovations that accelerate the decarbonisation, sustainability and electrification of the power sector?

Are you looking to connect with utilities and other industry professionals, gaining traction at Europe’s largest B2B event dedicated to the energy transition?

If yes, we want to hear from you!




Initiate Theatre Enlit Europe 2022

Initiate, Enlit’s innovation programme, and Eurelectric, the European power sector association, are excited to co-host an afternoon of pitching sessions on 30 November as part of Enlit Europe in Frankfurt and Eurelectric’s annual Digitopia event.

We are interested in solutions across the four “Ds” – decarbonisation, digitalisation, decentralisation, and democratisation. Use-cases in smart & sustainable buildings, electric mobility, and 24/7 carbon-free energy sourcing are particularly encouraged.

Apply Now

Start-ups, spin-offs, and scale-ups – submit your (digital or hardware) solutions by completing the form below by 30 September 2022.

You will then receive a follow-up email directing you to our on-line application, where you can tell us about your company and solution. Approximate time for completing the application: 10-15 minutes. The organisers will only use this information in the selection process for the pitching sessions.

Successful applicants will pitch live on the Innovation Hub stage at Enlit Europe 2022 in Frankfurt, in front of a panel of investors, incubators, and corporate innovators providing invaluable feedback and connections.
