bikuh connects the advertising industry with bicycle riders. Anyone owning a bike can place an advertisement on it and in return gets paid up to 20 cents for each ridden kilometre. This financial incentives motivates people to rider more often their bike and less their car. It is scientifically proven that it works and thus we save CO2 emissions. And advertisers profit from advertisements that are mobile and are ridden directly by their target group. Through an app bikuh tracks each ride and allows for digital analysis tools of the exposure of the campaign that are unknown to outdoor advertisement.http://www.bikuh.com

ChargeX - we develop a power strip to connect multiple electric cars to a single charging station. We thereby solve the problem of fully charged cars blocking the charging station. Our product allows a mostly automated plug-in process creating multiple charge points at low costs from a single charging station. Our target customers are EV owners and infrastructure providers, such as car park operators. The value we create for users of electric cars is a high availability of charging stations wherever they arrive. For infrastructure providers, we increase the utilization of individual charging stations, therefore reducing the overall costs of providing sufficient charging infrastructure in the future. Our milestones for 2017 are to finalize our prototype, get into the EXIST program, found our company and have the partners to start pre-production.
The technological basis of our plug&play storage device is a patented measurement technology, that is able to detect the electricity consumption within the household from the plug of the device itself. The system consists of a small photovoltaic panel and the storage device. As soon as the consumer plugs it in, the PV generates electricity which is stored in the battery pack and at the
moment electricity is consumed anywhere in the household, the devices detects it and electricity will be supplied back to the household grid.
With our unique system, we enable PV applications in smaller scales, especially for existing households in urban areas.
Our vision ist to „clean financial markets“ (CleaMa.net) by making financial products (funds) transparent to the public (private investors like you and me). Together with leading environmental NGOs we will develop an online tool, that allows you to match your personal values (e.g. low carbon, fossil-free, nuclear-free etc.) with the best investment opportunities in the market. We have a subscription based business model for regular, in-depth users for 5-8 Euro per month (with a freemium-version for basic functionality). On the B2B-side we sell data-packages to asset managers for a yearly fee of €20.000-30.000 per client. We will also certify truely „clean“ funds together with our NGO-partners on the basis of the top-ranking funds. Re. impact: The dirtiest 30 funds in Austria finance 86 Mt of CO2 if we shift 10% to fossil-free funds, this saves the yearly emissions of 1 mio. Austrians!http://www.esgplus.com
The Food & Energy Campus aims to interconnect different branches of agriculture in order to produce high quality food for the region in a resource efficient manner. We question conventional concepts of agriculture and develop new methods and technologies to ameliorate the production system. Companies with expertise in different fields of agriculture like greenhouse technologies, aquaculture, biogas production and soil substrate production, combine their knowledge in a network for a sustainable food production.http://food-and-energy.gg/
Gelatex is an eco-friendly leatherlike textile that is chemically identical to leather. The material is produced using only natural non-toxic substances and gelatin that is made of waste of meat industries. Gelatex is affordable eco-textile that is easy to produce in big quantities and therefore suitable for mass fashion or furniture brands.
BUSINESS MODEL: Gelatex Technologies supplies gelatin from gelatin factories and uses that to produce leatherlike textile Gelatex. Gelatex can be sold to several sewing industry companies, but target market is mass fashion or furniture brands.
VISION: We plan to have first sewable samples by Q4 of 2017 and enter to the market of mass fashion brands by Q4 of 2018. Our vision is to be known world widely as an eco-friendly alternative to leather and earn 4 million euros of profit in 2022
JOYCE is the world’s first scent-based retronasal drinking system which makes it possible to drink pure water while enjoying a delicious taste.
The JOYCE drinking system adds scented air to pure drinking water. While drinking, a mixture of air and water reaches the mouth where the air separates from the water and is retronasally perceived as flavor. The effect is amazing! While drinking pure water free from additives, sugar, calories or aromas one can still enjoy various delicious tastes.
With JOYCE, we tackle two major problems of our time. The wasteful cycle of using one way drinking bottles and health problems caused by unhealthy drinks.
We will generate two separate streams of income. One results out of selling the drinking system itself, the other one from continuously selling the aroma pods which last for about 20l of water.
The aponix vertical barrel takes the defacto standard equipment in mordern horticulture to the next level enabling users to set up grow spaces not only in 2D but in a flexible vertical 3D way. Cultivation area is translated from flat surface to the surface of barrel like towers, of which the height is flexible adding more grow spaces with additional height. The concept abstracts the barrel down to basically one lego like shape being 1/6th of a ring segment of a barrel. Each of the parts provides adapters on its surface. 6 of these parts are assembled into a ring segment, and any number of ring segments are then stacked as high as there can be beneficial atmosphere created for the cultivation of a crop.
prosumergy equips buildings, used by multiple tenants, with PV systems for on-site consumption of locally produced energy. In doing so, they act both as PV project developer and green electricity provider: They identify operating sites, put up and run PV systems adjusted to local needs and sell solar power directly to tenants.<br>
Moreover, prosumergy opens up investment opportunities in local energy provision for citizens as well as businesses in the places they live and operate. Hence, prosumergy upgrades the built environment and promotes sustainable cities. Prosumergy integrates solar energy into urban infrastructure to foster citizens’ participation in the “Energiewende”
pydro develops a smart plug and play turbine to recovery energy from the differential pressure in water pipe networks which would otherwise be lost. The main advantages of pydro's technology is the compact design which reduces installation costs and the pitch control which increases the energy efficiency rate.http://www.pydro.com
Reusable Laundry Detergent (ReLaDe) changes the concept of how laundry is done. It is the basis for the first reusable laundry detergent system in the world. Chemical detergents are toxic and harm reproductive health when spread into the water ecosystem. Instead of these toxic compounds, biological enzymes can be used without any loss of performance and with lower energy consumption.To address this issue, we use magnetic nanoparticles to bind enzyme molecules and magnetize them. The resulting magnetic detergent molecules can be easily removed from waste water via magnetic force and reused in subsequent wash cycles for months. Thus, we have redesigned the laundry detergent concept, creating a sustainable, reusable product which, if produced on an industrial scale and adopted into wide-spread use, could have significant positive health and environmental implications.http://www.relade.eu
Energy efficiency is an untapped potential in nearly all companies, building and infrastructure operators, municipalities, as well as private households.
Additionally, it is one of the top priorities of the agenda of the European Union and all energy providers.
The unique approach of Seensy includes not only outstanding technology (AI, Big data, IoT), but also a human-centric approach based on techniques to change the behaviour regarding the use of energy.
This approach/combination can save 30-50% of energy in most environments.
Seensy offers this services in a risk sharing business model, where the energy savings are covering more than the project expenses.
Based on a revolutionary concept, Solabolic parabolic trough will lead to a paradigm shift in the solar thermal industry. Its unique, patented design enables, on the one hand, to realize much larger collectors, while preventing the focus deviation due to wind loads, and eliminating inefficiency of large collectors and on the other hand, to avoid expensive and complicated manufacturing processing, which maximises the local content, especially in the developing countries (with the world's greatest solar resources) and supports the political decision in these countries towards solar energy, as we offer an economic advantage of manufacturing the collectors for the most part locally. All this leads to a significant reduction of the energy costs and accelerates the use of solar energy.
