SolarPower Europe Solar Startup Award 2022

There is a consensus that solar power will be the leading technology for electrifying a carbon-neutral world.

While the challenges of the energy transition are manifold, so are the solutions.

As the association for the European solar sector and the publisher of the Global Market Outlook for Solar Power, SolarPower Europe is again looking for the world’s brightest solar business ideas.

The winner of SolarPower Europe’s Solar Startup Award 2022 will be presented at the upcoming SolarPower Summit in March.

Competition

Companies participating in the Solar Startup Award will be reviewed and shortlisted by a selected jury. On the 24th of March, the three finalists will present their solar startup work during a public webinar. The recordings of the webinar will be made available to the participants of the SolarPower Summit, who will vote for the winner.

Register to our webinar on Thursday 24 March at 15:00 – 16:30 CET to discover who the finalists are. 

The winner of the Solar Startup Award 2022 will be announced during the Summit in Brussels.

The prize money is €5000.
