Global Innovation Accelerator is a tailor-made accelerator for companies that contribute to the Swedish and global transition towards a sustainable energy system and that are ready to internationalize.
The goal of the program is for the participating companies to get access to an international market or value chain chosen by the company and to find potential customers, investors or partners. A program round lasts between 12 and 18 months and focuses on business and market development support. The program content will be based on each participating company’s individual needs, e.g. market mapping, support for standardization and certification issues, participation in a conference / trade fair, investor search, etc.
Swedish Energy Agency
The Swedish Energy Agency’s assignment is to unite sustainability, competitiveness, and security of energy supply for cost-efficient energy systems with minimum impact on health, environment and the climate.
We contribute with data, knowledge, and analyses regarding energy use and supply in Sweden. We are also dedicated to maintaining a secure energy supply on a national level.
We support and fund national research on innovative energy technologies, smart grids, vehicles, and fuels of the future. Furthermore, we support business development, commercialisation, and export of cleantech innovations.
Official statistics and support schemes, such as the Electricity Certificate System and the EU Emission Trading System, are some of the agency’s responsibilities. We participate in international collaboration and provide information on efficient energy use to households, industries, and public authorities.
The Swedish Energy Agency also holds the overall responsibility for the energy sector due to civil preparedness.
Business Sweden’s purpose is to help Swedish companies reach their full international potential and foreign companies to invest and expand in Sweden. We offer our customers strategic advice and hands-on support in 50 of the world’s most interesting markets.
