Dear Reader,

we are lucky to share a great achievement and honor:

Renergon made it into the set of TOP 100 START-UPS OF 2020 – amongst hundreds of companies from 88 countries. The German Energy Agency (dena) and the World Energy Council therewith honor the most promising, innovating and inspiring top 100 start-ups of 2020, selected by a high-level jury, and supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag:

“This set celebrates innovation, tenacity, and companies, who are revolutionizing the world, and will be published and distributed to our partners all around the world, including those in the government, corporate, and industrial sector, and to investors and VCs looking to invest in energy start-ups.”



The SET100 is an annual compilation of the 100 best start-ups of the Start-Up Energy Transition Award by Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH dena & the World Energy Council . It contains the most innovative and promising start-ups that make the energy transition a fundamental component of their innovation. The SET100 list offers a comprehensive collection of companies, represented both geographically and across all sectors of the clean energy field.


One of the major challenges of the energy transition is that of working with a system that has been built on fossil fuels. The energy transition process involves a variety of actors seeking out new innovations, new technology, and new and expanded networks. Paired with the international push for policy changes, namely the 2015 UNFCCC Paris Agreement, clean technologies are increasingly challenging carbon-based systems.

The SET100 list celebrates innovative start-ups that the international community of cross-sectoral experts have acknowledged having the largest impact in energy and in the fight against climate change. This list serves as a key asset for allowing stakeholders, policymakers, and investors to quickly and effectively connect and collaborate with innovators. Furthermore, the SET100 is uniquely focused on start-ups.
