Energy & Clean Tech

The ECT Digest focuses on energy storage, future mobility and digitalization of the energy sector. We will also offer information of and access to the most prestigious events in the realm of energy and clean tech.

Dear Readers!
This one is the quick issue; to cover up for the absence. Also, there are some deadlines which are really close; have a look down!
The most amazing update is from Berlin; Germany. The Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue 2019 (BETD) has set an example for all the global conferences and forums; by making it highly balanced. Bringing together 60% women speakers on panels isn’t a small thing; let us all celebrate this!
Nameerah Hameed; National Chair for Women in Energy - Pakistan shares her experience of attending BETD 2019 in her latest Newsletter in these words: “What amazed me was not only the progressive dialogue on energy transition but also seeing majority female panels, a conscious decision made by the conference organizers. BETD also hosts Women’s Lunch, this year attended by 200 women leaders in energy from the world — a true powerhouse.”
Have you missed out BETD this year? Watch on YouTube.

Start Up Energy Transition concluded in an eventful April this year. The whole dena and World Energy Council SET team, in their latest newsletter thank everyone who supported SET 2019, and to all those who attended the SET Tech Festival and thanks to all those who came out to Drawdown Europe Call to Action event two weeks ago. SET welcomed 15 incredible finalists and announced 5 winners! The SET Awards 2019 were presented on April 9th at the evening reception of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, hosted by the German Federal Government.
Following 5 are the Winners of SET2019.
Enapter GmbH, Germany - Low Carbon Energy Production
Enapter designs and manufactures highly efficient hydrogen generators. The core technology is an Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM), which enables the safe and low-cost production of hydrogen.
Planet Ark Power, Australia - Intelligent Grids, Platforms & Cyber-security
With a high proportion of decentralised photovoltaic systems, voltage fluctuations can occur which endanger grid stability. The Planet Ark Power system, a combination of power converter and artificial intelligence, manages the voltage at the source.
BLIXT, Sweden - Energy Efficiency, Smart Devices & Storage
Conventional miniature circuit breakers mechanically protect electrical circuits from overload. The Blixt breaker can also communicate digitally, collect data and measure and control current flows.
Bodawerk, Uganda - Innovative Mobility
Bodawerk produces E-Bodas and converts used motorcycles to electric drives. In addition, they rent batteries and offer other motorcycle services. Bodawerk is thus facilitating the entry into e-mobility in East Africa.
As a social enterprise, Divine Bamboo operates and promotes the sustainable cultivation of fast-growing bamboo for the sale and production of clean charcoal and briquettes. The training is particularly focused on women.
Looking forward to SET 2020!

Addressing Food Security and Boosting Development with Geothermal Heat
Ending hunger and all forms of malnutrition, and creating sustainable food production systems, are goals that renewable energy can help achieve. Food production is energy-intensive and around 30 percent of global energy consumption is used to produce, process, and distribute food. Decarbonising the industry’s energy system can save money, boost local development and contribute to climate change mitigation. It can also bolster food security — a growing challenge. Today, one in nine people on the planet is hungry, and the evidence suggests this figure has risen in recent years largely due unpredictable weather patterns caused by climate change.
