What we believe

We believe that in the future, cleantech will be thought of in the way we view software today—not as something separate, but as an ecological mean to accomplish sustainability goals for any industry or organization. At its core, sustainability is about using resources more efficiently—a goal of any well-run business. Although cleantech companies today fall into many categories, they can be applied to any business sector. In general, we are interested in companies who work with deep technology and new science, anything from IoT sensors over blockchain to AI and advanced materials.

We are especially working in the domains of Sustainable Infrastructure, Advanced Mobility, Air and Environment, Energy Efficiency, Industrial IoT & Software, Power Infrastructure, Smart Grid, Renewable Energy, Water, Smart Building and Smart City.

The Belgian electricity transmission system operator Elia and Accelerace have joined forces to nurture innovations and help ambitious European start-ups to grow in the high voltage electricity sector. Strategic Partnership Manager Manoël Rekinger from Elia says: “Driven by the growth of renewable energy sources and the rise of digital technologies, the energy landscape is in transformation. Tomorrow, the consumer will have an ever more active role to play as a ‘prosumer’. This will offer opportunities to existing but also new actors. By joining forces, Elia and Accelerace aim to provide the necessary support and technical expertise to nurture innovations and help start-ups grow in the electricity sector.” Read more about the project in our Accelerace news section
