EIT InnoEnergy

EIT InnoEnergy brings people and resources together, catalysing and accelerating the energy transition. New ideas, products and solutions that make a real difference, and new businesses and people to deliver them to market. Operating at the centre of the energy transition, we build connections worldwide, bringing together innovators and industry, entrepreneurs and investors, graduates and employers.

We are also spearheading the way to a decarbonised Europe by 2050 through the leadership of three industrial alliances: battery storage, green hydrogen and solar photovoltaics. These alliances bring together the knowledge and experience required to support large industrial projects, which directly impact the energy trilemma: reducing the cost of energy, limiting greenhouse emissions and increasing availability and security. Ultimately, these actions play a fundamental role in realising our goal of a carbon neutral Europe by 2050.

All this is made possible thanks to our rich network of more than 1,200 key players from 18 different countries. Together we act as a key vehicle for the energy transition and make up the ingredients needed to bring a constant pipeline of sustainable energy innovation to market.

“Climate change is one of the great challenges of our time. Promoting sustainable innovations and making them commercially successful is a very essential component of a successful energy transition.”

Fabian Sacharowitz, Investment Director EIT InnoEnergy Germany
