17 December 2021 Tech Tour Energy in Transition Award Winners The energy transition is playing a major role in our battle against climate change. Aiming on reducing energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2), the energy transition is a topic where science, business and society come together. Tech Tour Energy Transition is focusing on bringing together innovative entrepreneurs and investors to accelerate groundbreaking development and commercialization of technologies. The Tech Tour Energy Transition programme is designed to help companies develop tech solutions in the sectors of Alternative Energy, Alternative Carbon, and Energy Efficiency & Digitalization to find partnerships and connections which will help them in making the energy transition reality. The award winners are invited to the Tech Tour Future22 event. There the award winners of the different programmes in digital, health and sustainability organized by Tech Tour will present. Future22 will take place on the 23-25 March, save the date, and join us! The Award Winners for Tech Tour Energy Transition 2021 are: Angara Industries is a decarbonization technology company helping our clients in high-emission industries to abate millions of tons of CO2 emissions while saving them billions of dollars. ChargeNet Stations's software platform makes it seamless for Quick Serve Restaurants (QSR) to offer customers an opportunity to eat great food and charge their EV, while reducing the QSR's operating costs. Econic develops novel catalysts that will allow existing plastic manufacturers to their products using waste carbon dioxide (CO2). EH Group is focused on the design and production of its innovative fuel cell technology. It offers market leading power density and a unique assembly process which radically reduces its costs. Electrochaea proprietary power-to-gas process converts CO2 and excess electricity into biomethane for injection into the gas grid, thus enabling utility-scale energy storage. e-peas S.A. provides industry leading energy harvesting and edge processing solutions to extend the lifetime of battery powered devices. Gradyent is an AI enabled cloud platform that improves heating networks in terms of efficiency & security of supply. H2SITE developed a technology to generate and separate hydrogen using many different feedstocks called advanced membrane reactors, very well adapted to small and medium consumers. Hardt Hyperloop has emerged from the winning team in Elon Musk's hyperloop competition, and is leading the hyperloop developments, implementation, and standardization of the hyperloop in Europe. Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies provides an easy, cost-efficient, and safe transport of hydrogen via LOHC. Insolight is building new solar modules providing adjustable crops protection on top of electricity generation. The solar installation replaces agricultural shading systems in plastic tunnels or greenhouses, opening large installation deployments that don’t affect land use. Ionomr creates advanced, non-toxic ion-exchange materials to replace Nafion and enable next-generation electrochemical systems for hydrogen and CO2-to-value. Kraftblocks provides an eco-friendly, cost-efficient and highly scalable, modular thermal energy storage system. Norsepower Oy has developed and brought to market the Norsepower Rotor Sail Solution. When the wind conditions are favorable, Norsepower Rotor Sails allow the main engines to be throttled back, saving fuel, and reducing emissions while providing the power needed to maintain speed and voyage time. Prognostic Limited is a granular carbon tracking, intelligence, and offsetting platform for industrial decarbonization. This is approached in a novel way to calculate GHG emissions using industrial asset energy and efficiency management, capturing data from plant, machinery and logistic. SKYRE is a developer/manufacturer of proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrochemistry technology for hydrogen separation and compression and CO2 conversion to chemicals and fuels. Smart Helio keeps solar plants healthy using Advanced Asset Performance Management software and IOT sensors. Solarstone products are roofing material and solar panels at the same time which can be installed by one team which increases efficiency in time and costs. The products look aesthetical and come with great strength. STOR-H Technologies SA is a new zero-CO2 energy standard that powers urban & light mobility using a disruptive and proprietary hydrogen storage technology. Ultra High Temperature Processes uses heat to produce Hydrogen and Oxygen for industrial processes in an energy efficient, low-cost and safe way. Vertoro makes green gold out of biomass. Starting from this platform product, third parties can develop downstream applications for the renewable chemicals, energy and materials markets.
