As Open Innovation enablers, Mind the Bridge is continuously identifying the best startups focused on solving major industry challenges that large corporations are facing. We are thrilled to share our Worldwide top 5 startups worth looking at in the Energy sector as well as the main drivers these companies are leveraging.
The Energy sector has been going through deep transformations in the last few decades. Here are four main drivers of this industry.
- Interconnection between sectors, which traditionally had been separated, is becoming stronger and stronger. Mobility and the electrical power market are a clear example of this.
- Growth in electricity demand and self-production requires incumbents to be well prepared for a smarter, flexible electric grid management.
- Energy for Environment – the pressing need for contrasting climate change is impacting deeply the energy industry, including electric and Oil&Gas companies.
- Digital Care for infrastructure – high CapEx infrastructure is critical in the Energy sector. However, inspection and maintenance in often remote or underground equipment is costly and time-consuming. New autonomous technologies and digital solutions are here to help.
