Energy start-ups sought – deadline for applications is 31 August

This year the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology is working in partnership with the BayStartUP and the Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern initiatives for the first time to honour energy start-ups.

The competition takes place in several stages. First start-up teams have the opportunity to present themselves and their business idea to an expert jury. From this field of participants three finalists will be selected who have the opportunity to make another presentation on the 20th of October 2016 in Nuremberg at the 10th Edition of the Bavarian Energy Awards. The final positions are decided in a public vote. Total prize money of EUR 5000 is up for grabs. The event is staged in conjunction with the Verbund AG, Bayernwerk AG, Bayern Innovativ GmbH companies and the German Association of Energy and Water Industries. The deadline for applications is 31 August 2016.
