PowerACE 2021 Start-up Competition

PFAN has a longstanding partnership with the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), and we are partnering once again this year with SEAS to help organise the third PowerACE start-up competition. PowerACE is aimed at supporting entrepreneurs and young companies in the energy start-up ecosystem.

It is a pitching competition for start-ups that either work directly in the energy sector or that provide support to companies in the energy industry. It is an ideal platform for sharing ideas and innovations with investors and large corporations looking to supplement their existing businesses.

The top 12 selected start-ups will get a chance to exhibit at the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES) from 26-28 October 2021, where they can showcase their products and ideas, connect and exchange ideas with incumbents in the industry, meet with potential investors, and scout for the right professionals within the energy sector.

In addition, the chosen start-ups will be receiving mentoring from industry professionals from PFAN, who will help them to refine their business models and pitches over a period of one month. To top it all, the winning start-up company will receive attractive awards from other sponsors including Ecolabs and BloombergNEF.

The deadline for submission has been extended to 27 August 2021 – so there is no time to waste if you are interested!
