Europe’s catalyst for clean energy innovation, The Business Booster (TBB), is back for the fifth year running and will take place in RAI Amsterdam on 25-26 October 2017.

Unique among European energy events, TBB brings together more than 160 innovative start-ups and SMEs, alongside established companies looking to source innovative products, a wealth of investors, and, crucially, senior public-sector officials – with this year’s event laser-focused on accelerating the clean energy transition.

Diego Pavia, CEO at InnoEnergy, says: “The clean energy revolution is happening in Europe, but not fast enough. To meet our ambitious goals and help halt climate change, we need to move faster – we need to fast-track clean energy innovation. TBB is the event that makes that happen.

“Not only does TBB bring together more clean energy innovators than any other event, it provides the industry players, investors and public-sector institutions, with a direct access to breakthrough technologies and new business models. The event is a place where transactions and partnerships happen so that clean energy innovations get off the ground to make a material difference as rapidly as possible.”

TBB attendees can access all conferences and sessions as well as the main exhibition and benefit from extensive networking opportunities. At the 2016 edition in Barcelona, 690 participants and 149 exhibitors from 32 countries engaged in 720 minutes of networking and 420 minutes of pitching. This year, for the first time, the event will include a demonstration area where the attendees will be able to see the innovations “live”.

Elena Bou, Innovation Director at InnoEnergy, says: “When we asked last year’s attendees for feedback, we were delighted to find that 98 per cent would recommend TBB to their contacts. But we’re confident that the value goes even further than the event itself.

“There’s no point in accelerating through the start-up stage then cutting support. So we continue supporting our partners’ innovations throughout their lifecycle and most crucially helping them on their way to commercialisation. It’s through this ongoing backing of successful pitches – with business advice and mentorship in addition to investment – that TBB proves the true catalyst for change in Europe’s sustainable energy industry.”

Hosted by InnoEnergy, the European innovation engine for sustainable energy, TBB is the only event that brings all the necessary stakeholders together to create the future of sustainable energy, today.
