Business Development and Commercialisation

The Swedish Energy Agency supports new companies within the clean energy and sustaintech sector. We also inform investors about upcoming sustaintech companies and about their potential for investment.

The Swedish Energy Agency is Sweden’s largest public funder and facilitator of Swedish sustaintech companies. We support businesses with funding and knowledge throughout their entire growth journey, from basic research to commercialisation and internationalisation. Our mission is to promote Swedish energy innovations, in the effort to meet Sweden’s energy and climate goals and to help combat global climate change.

Our offer to businesses

Our support can be summarised in three points: Capital, Knowledge and Network.

  • Capital, in that we offer financial support for business development, customer validation (CV), pilot- and demonstration projects (P&D), commercialisation, and last but not least internationalisation.

  • The Agency's national and international network includes academia, trade associations, authorities, and other players within the innovation system, as well as existing companies in the field of energy and private companies that can invest in new ideas.

Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day

Each year we partner up with and co-organise the event “Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day”, a full day event where investors get the opportunity to meet and listen to 30 carefully selected Swedish companies with a strong position in their respective market.

The participating companies are selected by an independent jury, the criteria being that they can present sustainable solutions or products within energy (sustainable technology regardless of industry with some type of tech component) and contribute to the 1,5 degrees goal. Rapid sales growth and scalable business models are prioritised.

Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day has for the last three years attracted more than 200 investors including business angels, corporate ventures, venture capital companies, mutual funds, and public financiers and has thus become one of the most important arenas för sustainable investment promotion.
