KIC InnoEnergy - Iberia
Topic of the practice
Renewable energy start-ups
Good Practice Information
Barcelona benefits from the participation in KIC InnoEnergy (Iberia), which allows them to focus on energy start-ups and build strong external investor networks, thanks to the good reputation of the incubator as a mentor. KIC InnoEnergy Iberia works on renewable energies (wind, CSP, PV, wave and tidal energy) since some demonstrative projects on Concentrated Solar Power are already present in Spain and Portugal.
Evidence of success
Barcelona was world capital of the electric vehicle in 2013 and hosted the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS), the benchmark world congress for this sector.
There are 30 shareholders in the field of innovation and sustainable energy, who finance the incubation programme. Between 50.000 and 100.000 € are available for each successful start-up.
