About the energy4u Event:


At the end of September 2019, the University of Applied Sciences Karlsruhe transformed itself into a marketplace of ideas for the fourth time.

Scientists met with representatives of small and medium-sized companies with the aim of jointly exploring new ideas, cooperations and concrete business opportunities with innovative technologies from the energy sector.

Energy4U encompassed an expert conference with parallel sessions and a fair where energy-related technologies were presented and companies had the opportunity to show their products/solutions/projects in the marketplace area.

Due to its concept of intermingling conference and fair, Energy4U brought together technology providers, technology users, research institutions and investors from the energy sector in the region of Karlsruhe.

In short presentations and as exhibitors, participants were able to present their products, services, projects and innovative business ideas to an interested specialist audience and investors. The conference was divided into the focal points of energy conversion, energy storage, energy efficiency and energy transport with thematic blocks such as “efficient buildings”, “innovative energy storage”, “natural refrigerants”, “e-mobility”, “photovoltaics and light” and “creative minds”.

The E2Driver was presented with a booth by Fatih G√ľnes, Cluster Manager at AEN and Sieglinde Walz, CEO of AEN.

Energy4u was organized by the University of Applied Sciences and the EnergyForum of the Economic Development Department of the City of Karlsruhe and was supported by the regional competence centre Energy Efficiency Middle Upper Rhine (KEFF). In addition, Energy4u offered a wide range of networking opportunities with the Karlsruhe Business Ecosystem.

For E2Driver project and AEN this event was an opportunity to present the projects, talk to advisory group members, pilots and potential pilots/replication companies of E2Driver project.
