Cleantech ForEst ja Sunly on säästva tehnoloogia edendamiseks loonud esitluskeskuse, kus eksponeeritakse ja tutvustatakse Eesti rohetehnoloogia startuppe ning nende tooteid ja teenuseid. Keskuses on esitletud rohkem kui 40 idufirmat viies kategoorias, sealhulgas energia, põllumajandus ja toit.

Cleantech ForEsti tegevjuhi Erki Ani sõnul on demokeskus kohalike huvigruppide ja rahvusvaheliste võrgustike esmane kontaktpunkt, mis pakub ülevaadet Eesti idufirmade poolt väljatöötatud puhastest tehnoloogiatest.

„Demokeskuse asukohta valiti hoolikalt ning selleks osutus rohetehnoloogia keskus Port of Power, kus ühe katuse all tegutsevad valdkonna erinevad võtmetegijad. See on koht, kust juhime oma roheinnovatsiooni edendavat Beamline kiirendit ja see on ka koht, kus valdkonna idufirmade juhid, ettevõtjad, investorid ja teised sidusrühmad kohtuvad ja omavahel igapäevaselt suhtlevad," rääkis Erki.

Startup Estonia juht Eve Peeterson on kindel, et rohetehnoloogia demokeskusel on Eesti idufirmade maailmas oluline koht. „Cleantech on valdkond, mis peab olema ja lähitulevikus ka on horisontaalselt integreeritud kõikidesse ettevõtetesse. Uues demokeskuses esitletavad idufirmad mängivad selles protsessi otsustavat rolli, mistõttu on tegu suurepärase inspiratsiooniallikaga,” kommenteeris Eve.

Sunly asutaja ja juht Priit Lepasepp rõõmustab demokeskuse valmimise üle. “Sunly on Eesti rohetehnoloogia iduettevõtetesse investeerinud neli miljonit eurot ja teame kui oluline on olla kursis valdkonnaga, mis kasvab ja areneb hüppeliselt. Demokeskus on selleks sobiv koht, pakkudes investoritele ja startuppidele võimalusi oma investeeringute võimendamiseks,” kommenteeris Priit.

Eesti rohetehnoloogia demokeskus asub füüsiliselt Tallinnas Port of Power keskuses, kuid seoses COVID-i levikuga on külastused piiratud. Eraekskursiooni broneerimiseks tuleks ühendust võtta kogukonnajuhi Mari Sepaga aadressil mari.sepp@sunly.ee. Samuti võite cleantech.portofpower.ee veebilehel leida põhjaliku andmebaasi Eesti cleantechi idufirmadest.

Eesti Cleantechi demokeskuse valmimisele aitas kaasa valitsuse sihtasutus KredEx, mis pakub erinevaid rahastusvõimalusi. Projekti rahastab Startup Estonia programmi raames Euroopa Regionaalarengu Fond.

Cleantech ForEst and Sunly opened the Estonian Cleantech Demo Centre

Cleantech ForEst and Sunly have created a demonstration centre for promoting Estonian sustainable technology. The centre provides a space where cleantech startups, their products and services can be exhibited and introduced. More than 40 startups in five categories including energy, agriculture & food are covered at the centre.

Erki Ani, the CEO of Cleantech ForEst said that the demo centre is a primary contact point for local interest groups and international networks, allowing both of them to gain an overview of the clean technologies developed by Estonian start-ups.

“The location of the demo centre was carefully chosen to be at the energy & cleantech hub called Port of Power to benefit from having different key players all under the same roof. This is where we run our Beamline accelerator to encourage clean innovation and this is where direct contacts and interaction between startup leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and other stakeholders take place effortlessly,” Erki said.

Eve Peeterson, the Head of Startup Estonia said that the Cleantech Demo Centre has an important place in Estonia’s startup world. “Cleantech is a field that has to be and will be horizontally integrated into all enterprises and all startups presented in the new demo centre are playing a crucial role in this. A great place of inspiration!” said Eve.

Priit Lepasepp, the founder and CEO of Sunly is pleased with the completion of the demo centre. “Sunly has invested 4 million euros into Estonian cleantech startups so we know how important it is to stay updated in our field which is exponentially growing and evolving. For this, cleantech centre is a great tool for investors as well as for startups in aplifying their investments,” commented Priit.

The Estonian Cleantech Demo Centre is physically located at the Port of Power  in Tallinn but during the lock-down, visits are restricted. To schedule a private tour, please contact the Community Manager Mari Sepp at mari.sepp@sunly.ee. You may find us also online where the website cleantech.portofpower.ee provides a comprehensive database of Estonian cleantech startups.

The Estonian Cleantech Demo Centre was built with the help of KredEx - a governmental foundation that provides different financial solutions. The project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Startup Estonia program.
