E-world energy & water 2024 opened its doors from 20 to 22 February 2024, and we from were right in the middle of it. We were there in Essen to share our vision with the world. From inspiring talks to exciting encounters – we have summarised the highlights for you here:

Focus on our vision

Our goal is clear: we want to create a functioning ecosystem of start-ups, companies and partners. The should not just be a platform for innovation, but a hotspot for creative minds who want to change the world together. With this vision and a team that is ready to push the boundaries, our presence at E-world was a statement for the future!

Meeting with VDMA - A look into the future

A highlight was our meeting with Juliane Salten and Max Stein from the VDMA Startup Machine. Innovation was the keyword here, and the possibilities seemed limitless. We look forward to future collaborations and the exciting projects that await us!

Encouragement from the highest level

State Secretary Silke Krebs was also on site and had encouraging words for us. Her support for innovation in established industries is exactly what we need to move forward. Her recognition of our work was balm for the soul and confirmed that we are on the right track!

Important partners at our stand

We had great partners and contacts at our stand who are all pulling in the same direction and want to drive innovation forward together with us.

Peter Schlösser from the Competence Centre for Innovative Procurement (KOINNO) supported us with his expertise in the field of innovative procurement. We were also supported by Dietmar Miller from our partner and network Smart Grids-Plattform Baden-Württemberg e.V., who gave us insights into the energy sector.

Support that inspires

And then there was the support of great partners! Mona Neubaur, Minister for Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, once again took on the patronage of the, emphasising the importance of our innovative format.

Michael von Roeder, as CDIO of the Elia Group, plays a decisive role as a driver of the energy transition in both Germany and Belgium. The Elia Group firmly believes in the transformative power of intrapreneurship. Their approach enables employees to turn challenges into opportunities and actively participate in shaping the energy grid of the future.

Their support and belief in our vision are the fuel that drives us!

Panel with CEO Christian Schweizer

Another highlight was the exciting panel on the topic of „Hands down instead of hands up: What can be done to inspire young talent for the energy transition?“ Fascinating discussions took place here on the E-world energy & water career day!

Our CEO Christian Schweizer was part of this panel and shared important insights on inspiring young talent in the energy transition at the Future Forum: Traditional companies in particular need to offer attractive conditions to retain young talent, otherwise they will create their own start-ups.

Also part of the panel: Matthias Heidmeier, State Secretary in the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of North Rhine-Westphalia, Leon Trippel and Claus Urbanke from Statkraft.

Conclusion of the exciting discussion: We recognise the urgent need for change in the energy sector. Innovation is inevitable and we are determined to make our contribution.

A platform for potential founders

We used E-world to provide an initial insight into our new idea and platform: A platform for budding founders. Our aim is to make it easier for budding entrepreneurs to get started and at the same time to make unutilised expert knowledge available for tackling new challenges. Although our innovative solution is still in its infancy, we were already able to present our first insights at E-world. We spoke intensively with founders of start-ups and potential company founders on site to find out whether our idea has potential, how we can optimise it and how our previous planning has been received. Your opinion is important to us – please share it and take part in our survey!

We emerge from this event with a stronger back and new ideas and are excited to see what the future holds for us!
