In order for Sweden to achieve its climate goals, more energy-efficient innovations are needed that help us save energy and, above all, more people need to switch to more energy-efficient and sustainable solutions.

On a mission from the Swedish Energy Authority

Since 2018, Linköping Science Park, along with other innovation environments, have worked together on behalf of the Swedish Energy Agency to increase the commercialization of energy innovations to help them reach the market.

In 2018, the Swedish Energy Agency started a pilot initiative where, with the help of innovation environments around Sweden, they wanted to increase the number of energy innovations that are commercialized. The pilot was the first of its kind and from Östergötland four environments joined forces: Linköping Science Park, Norrköping Science Park, Cleantech Östergötland and LEAD together to work with these goals regionally and act as a mediator between local companies and the Swedish Energy Agency.

The mission was renewed in 2021 and Linköping Science Park, Cleantech Östergötland and LEAD continues to work together.

 



News within Energy Efficiency

How can we help?

If you are a company who’s solution contributes to reduced co2 emissions we will:

  • Help you calculate the co2 emission reduction of your product/service. We will connect you to relevant researchers, students or companies.
  • Support you with project applications. Connect with us and we will guide you to relevant project applications and support you with writing them.

Equal and sustainable investments

Today, women own only 4% of Swedish companies and, in addition, the distribution of risk capital is extremely unevenly distributed between the sexes. We want to increase the opportunities for an equal society and build a more sustainable development that is not only based on economic success but on social and green principles.

We organize programs for women who wants to invest sustainably. The participants learn about evaluation of owners and management in investments, risk assessments and various forms of investment. They also learn to assess the sustainability of companies.

Are you interested in joining the next program, keep a look out among our events or contact Project Manager Elise Karlborg.

This program is made possible by Linköping Science Park, Linköpings Kommun, Lead, Energimyndigheten, Cleantech Östergötland, Norrköpings Kommun, Östsvenska Handelskammaren and Swedbank through Sparbanksstiftelsen Alfa.


Cleantech Östergötland- together we solve society's environmental challenges!

Cleantech Östergötland is a politically independent network where people from business, the public and academia come together to solve the environmental challenges of our society. Together, we cultivate successful relationships that develop into sustainable businesses through knowledge and environmental technology.

Cleantech Östergötland is taking on a leading role in creating collaborations for everyone who wants to solve environmental challenges. The starting point for the work is in accordance with Agenda 2030 and a number of the global goals.

Pitch & Match

Pitch & Match, a series of events where selected environmental technology companies have been able to pitch their solutions to actors in need of solutions in different sectors. For example the construction and real estate sector, which accounts for a significant part of Sweden’s total climate impact.

“The goal has been to find matches between need owners and environmental technology companies, which it has done in several cases! In other cases, need owners and pitching companies have chosen to make a joint application to the Swedish Energy Agency to verify the solution.” – Johan Rydberg, CEO of Cleantech Östergötland.

Sustainability for Scaleups

One part of our sustainability work is within the program Swedish Scaleups with Scaleups, smaller companies that are in growing phase. We see that environmental, economical and social sustainability incorporated in the business model is essential to be successful and attract investors, customers and new talent!

For example we give the participating companies:

  • Increased knowledge of how your products reduced Co2 emissions contributes to increased growth.
  • A growth plan with a clear connection to Co2 – impact.
  • Increased knowledge of relevant Investors.
  • Increased knowledge of the Swedish Energy Agency’s offer.

Sustainability from the start!

Entrepreneurs in Residence

Entrepreneurs in Residence is the program that builds the leaders of tomorrow and an enabler for  ideas that can change the world! The participants get to work with real cases, coached by experienced business coaches and gather tools to become a sharp company builder.

Ignite- Matchmaking between startups & large companies

Ignite’s purpose and goal is to increase the commercialization of research and innovations by matching them with clear needs and customers. LEADs ways of working have been proven successful at several hundred startups and large companies. There is also a clear integration with the global sustainability goals in Agenda 2030. For example Ignite work clearly to identify how established companies work with the global sustainability goals when we carry out needs analyzes to be able to match them with startups that have solutions within the goals.
