    The phelas-team is developing Aurora, a standardized, modular, mass-manufactured, cheap large-scale electrical storage system that is based on a new proprietary approach on Liquid Air Energy Storage. With this system, we can decrease storage costs by a factor of 10, solving the problem that the sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow.

    42% of Europe lives in apartment buildings, yet there's no cost-effective and scalable solution for adding electric vehicle charging to these buildings. And without this, it'll be hard to sell electric cars to this huge swath of the European population. HeyCharge changes this with a vertically-integrated product and platform for managing, billing, and accessing chargers in an apartment building. We can offer retrofits at a fraction the price of our competition through a number of innovations including ultra-low-cost charging "access points" that we've developed, and our proprietary technology for securely managing chargers with no internet connection. These innovations and product packaging result in a total cost ownership of 20% compared to competing solutions.

    Toolbot ( UG)

    toolbot is a sustainable rental system that makes sharing easy, fast and affordable. Users can simply log in with an App via smartphone or computer, select their tool, pick them up at a station within an hour and return them at any time. Consumables, such as bits and saw blades, can also be purchased in the app and taken out of an integrated vending machine. The system consists of a space-efficient and modularly expandable station, electronic toolboxes (that can register the completeness of parts, for example)and an IT system that connects everything and will integrate additional services in the future.

    eFriends Energy

    eFriends provides a platform that allows sharing energy in a community possible and makes energy consumption more exciting and for everyone available. eFriend's innovation is proprietary hardware and software modules that can be inexpensively installed in every household. These offer the possibility for consuming self-produced photovoltaic power regardless of location or being able to offer it to someone else. From now on, everyone can purchase pure solar energy completely independent of whether one lives in a flat or a house. Our community approach makes it possible to connect consumers and producers and build your own energy network.

    Over 10% of the energy consumed worldwide is due to industrial separation processes like the purification of chemicals and energy carriers. UniSieve developed an innovative membrane platform technology that promises to increase yields, lower costs, and CO2 emissions. The UniSieve technology works as an add-on unit, and can flexibly increase profitability and sustainability of a variety of existing separation processes, but also is promising to act as an enabler for renewable technologies.

    PipePredict (former Sooqua) - Smart Water Networks

    PipeOredict uses Machine-Learning algorithms to analyze sensordata from water networks in order to localize leakage in an early stage, show the networks status in real-time and predict when and where a pipe is going to burst. With our combination of different algorithms we have a higher precision in leakage localization. Thus water suppliers reduce their repairment costs and minimize water losses. We make repairments plannable.

    Increasing population, life expectancy and income are major drivers for rising global meat demand. However, the current scale of the meat industry is beyond sustainable. We at Planted have the solution: we skip the animal and make healthy, nutritious and cruelty-free ‘meat’ directly from plants. Our technology allows us to mimic the fiber structure and length of various meat types, to flexibly choose the protein source and to add the juiciness consumers miss with conventional meat analogues.
