Solarflux: Delivering Highly Efficient, Cost-effective Solar Thermal Energy

Top 10 Energy Tech Startups - 2021

The energy business is undergoing a tremendous technological transition that will reshape traditional energy delivery lines. The new wave of technology brings realistic alternatives that can significantly increase the amplitude with which people use natural resources rather than traditional fossil fuels.

Factory environments have become more efficient thanks to automation and data-driven approaches in energy production. “Energy 4.0,” or the digital revolution in the energy sector, has been marked by the penetration of innovative technology, which has the power to change the energy supply. After seeing their potential in other industries, the energy sector has quickly adopted technology concepts such as internet of things (IoT), big data, blockchain, machine learning, and cloud computing. Using the latest technology, energy and utility businesses have reimagined how they operate and communicate with their customers. Technically, it has contributed to developing a smart grid, better-managed renewable energy, and more cohesively distributed power. Further, IoT has transformed the industry’s operations into a global network of connected devices that can send digital data to platforms that capture, analyze, and share results in real-time.

To help leaders navigate the world of energy tech, Energy Tech Review has compiled a list of the most promising energy tech startups. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs.

We present to you Energy Tech Review’s “Top 10 Energy Tech Startups - 2021.”
