The Start Up Energy Transition Award, offers a fair and international competition opportunity to those who are focused on positively affecting global energy transition and climate change. To date, the award has seen 2,700+ entries from such entrepreneurs from more than 100 countries. 

We are extremely grateful for this top ranking and wish to thank all involved in the SET100 list for the opportunity to be part of this fantastic ranking. Hearty congratulations to all contenders and the award winners also.
