About the Event

Never has there been so much movement in the industry – never have there been more reasons to invest in new partnerships. The last Energy Startup Day took place on Thursday, 14 December 2023, in Bern at beautiful Dampfzentrale with over 220 attendees. It showcased over 40 startups & innovators that aim to increase energy efficiency, decarbonize the industry and push forward the energy transformation via digitalization and the use of artificial intelligence. The programme was packed with pitches, networking opportunities and a startup exhibition.

When is the next Energy Startup Day taking place?

Originally scheduled for September 19, 2024, we have decided to move the event to autumn 2025. This change is necessary as we need more time to prepare the 10th anniversary and meet the needs of all stakeholders in the energy sector.

In partnership with our new venue ally, the Zentrum für Innovation und Digitalisierung ZID near Bern, we are developing an environment that will foster even better networking opportunities. This collaboration is part of our strategy to tailor the event more closely to the needs of startups, investors, and other key industry players.

We are also pleased to announce our partnership with the SICTIC Investor Club, which will attract a greater number of investors to the event, increasing the potential for meaningful connections and support for our startups.

After nine years of continuous operation, we are taking a little more time to ensure that the Energy Startup Day is even better aligned with the evolving needs and interests of our community, and that the 10th anniversary will be a truly outstanding experience.

Stay tuned for more details and see you in 2025!
