The New Energy Challenge is looking for the most innovative startups working on low-carbon energy technologies in Europe and Israel.

Led by Shell, the program runs in partnership with company builder Yes!Delft and startup support organisation Rockstart. This year’s theme is the “Multiples Edition”.

The New Energy Challenge attempts to help address the world’s energy shortages. Our energy consumption globally is only going to grow, highlighting the need for more sustainable and efficient energy technologies while reducing CO2 emissions.

The startup program seeks to find innovative energy entrepreneurs that can power this energy transition and, eventually, scale up to become global players.


Startups developing low-carbon energy solutions, are invited to apply to join the challenge.

The challenge is now open for entry, with closing date for applications on July 23.

Ten startup finalists will be selected to attend the finals week in Amsterdam in October. The finalists will receive coaching and advice from Shell and partners on perfecting their product and business model.

At the finals the ten startups will pitch their ideas to an expert jury. The winning startup will take home a €100,000 investment and a year’s worth of business advice from Shell.

Two runners up will secure a spot on Rockstart and Yes!Delft’s accelerator programs.
