The German energy market is undergoing a significant change that the current world situation and the energy crisis have accelerated. To remain competitive, innovative thinking is required within the industry. Thus the interest in new technical solutions is great. The Swedish-German Cleantech Platform supports Swedish companies in finding and using the most important entrances to the German market. Of the ten Swedish companies participating, four come from Linköping.

Participants in the program gain increased knowledge of the German business ecosystem and its institutions, clusters, incubators and financing opportunities. In addition to this, individual business partner matchmaking will be carried out. The year will be characterized by personal coaching, workshops and pitch optimization for all participants. It gives the participating companies direct contact with decision-makers, buyers and business developers looking for new environmental technology solutions.

The companies participating from Linköping are DAZOQ, Epishine, InviSense and Modio.

Dazoq offers an Intelligent Energy Management System (IEMS) platform to help industrial companies reduce their energy consumption by up to 20 percent. Sensors measure power consumption and visualize potential savings in the AI-controlled and cloud-based energy management system.

Epishine is a leading developer and manufacturer of printed solar cells. Epishine produces a unique, organic solar cell in an ISO-certified industrial printing process that is optimized to utilize ambient indoor light and is easily integrated into smaller, low-power electronic components.

InviSense makes measuring moisture in buildings and their various components possible during construction projects. The ultra-thin and passive sensors are built to be used throughout the whole building lifecycle. By measuring moisture and temperature in, for example, concrete and levelling compound, only as much heat is supplied as is necessary during the drying process and signals when a transition to

Modio offers real-time energy management of fixed assets. Modio can extract and import data from buildings and systems securely, automated and continuously. This data can be used to verify new business models such as “Cooling as a Service” (CaaS), controls for buildings with net zero emissions and verification of buildings’ CO2 emission reports.

The internationalization program for the German market, the Swedish-German Cleantech Platform (SGCP), is run jointly by the Energy Agency and the German-Swedish Chamber of Commerce. Every year, Swedish cleantech companies have the chance to receive support in exporting their energy innovations.
