10 EIT Community innovators listed on 2022 Global Cleantech 100

Last week, the Cleantech Group unveiled its annual and prestigious Global Cleantech 100 list. 10 innovators part of the EIT Community have been included in this prestigious list.

The Global Cleantech 100 list brings together the most innovative and promising ideas ready to change the market and the future of global industries in the next five to ten years. the list represents a group of private companies having the same goals as the Clentech Group: more digitized, de-carbonized and resource-efficient industrial future. The Global Cleantech 100 for 2022 includes innovations supported by EIT Digital, EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Food and EIT InnoEnergy.


METRON aims to transform energy into a profit centre in the industrial sector. It has developed an energy intelligence AI-driven platform dedicated to the industrial sector. The METRON-EVA® Factory (Energy Virtual Assistant) platform leverages the multiple data sources already available in plants and takes advantage of advanced technologies to proactively identify energy optimisation opportunities and connect to decentralised energy assets.

Skeleton Technologies

Skeleton Technologies delivers high power, high energy, reliable and long-life storage solutions across industries. Their high-performance and long-lasting new-generation batteries (ultracapacitors) are revolutionising the market, delivering twice the energy density of the most advanced devices produced by competitors. Recharged in less than two seconds, with a lifetime of more than one million uses (against the 3 000 typical of traditional batteries), these patented raw material, ‘curved graphene’ ultracapacitors are a true game-changing innovation.

Swiss start-up Climeworks aims to play a major role in achieving the goal of the European Union to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% (from 1990 levels). The company, which Bill Gates recently named one of 10 breakthrough technologies, captures carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air before repurposing it. In Switzerland, for instance, one plant sells the CO2 to the soft-drinks industry.

Mosa Meat

Mosa Meat produces beef by growing it directly from animal cells. Presenting the world's first cultivated hamburger in 2013 (costing EUR 250.000), our team inspired a cellular agriculture industry, where 70+ companies worldwide now grow meat and seafood in a more efficient, sustainable way. Our team of 44 scientists, engineers and food lovers, is optimizing taste, cost, and a scaled production process, to ultimately reshape the global food system.

TWAICE’s software creates a unique “digital twin” of battery systems. It can be used to make precise analyses and predictions about the ‘health’ of each energy storage device. By using field data in combination with physical and data-driven battery models, TWAICE closes the loop between product development and application. But, even more so, the software also allows for new opportunities such as predictive maintenance and warranty extension. Operational failures can be detected—and prevented—in real time.
