Free Electrons 2021 – DABBEL reaches final after intense pitch round

Dabbel IA building Automation

Dubai, 03. June, 2021: Free Electrons is with you, now and into the future – come on this journey with us!

Now in its 5th edition, Free Electrons, the ultimate energy innovation program, offers a diverse range of opportunities for startups and utilities. Selected startups will work alongside major energy utilities in a series of modules held physically and digitally across the globe.

DABBEL’s application for Free Electrons 2021 was successful and an intense and fast pitching event followed. All selected startups demonstrated their solutions and their teams through a fast-paced pitch event and participated in intense one-on-one meetings with utilities.

Shortly afterwards, the 15 finalists were chosen by our jury. After an intense bootcamp where 35 amazing startups met with utility partners to deep dive into their solutions, decisions had to be made. And it was not an easy decision. Next stop for our finalists will be the Master Module in Melbourne.

The Master Module focuses on matching solutions with concrete challenges to outline a collaborative roadmap for the first pilots between startup and utility. Through further one-on-one meetings, pilot scope is clearly defined, and solutions are being contracted. 

Working with mentors and learning from successful case studies, participants will be given insight into the utility piloting process, advice on pitching to corporates, and explore the inner workings of large corporations.

Congratulations to the startups moving to the virtual Master Module of Free Electrons 2021 in the end of June.
