In this podcast we talk a lot to experts on regulatory developments and frameworks, to representatives of large organisations and associations. One thing we haven't really covered in depth is the important role of startups in driving the sustainable energy world.
So in this episode, we want to find out what significant role they play and what they need to be successful and thrive with their contribution to a decentralised energy supply with renewable energies.
The road from an idea to a successful business model is a long one. And the fundamental problem for start-ups is often finding investors. What criteria do investors often use to decide whether to invest in an energy start-up? And in which areas are there particularly many start-ups or can they be particularly successful?
Jan Lozek of Future Energy Ventures tells us all about this and much more.
The smarter E podcast is all about the current trends and developments in a renewable, decentralized and digital energy industry.
