Cleantech startups across the world are taking great efforts to reduce energy consumption, embrace renewable energy source, manage waste more effectively, and keep the environment cleaner and greener. Today, cleantech and modern technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are being talked about in the same breath with increasing regularity. AI is driving the future of cleantech development across the globe with significant breakthroughs in the way energy is produced, stored, and consumed. Cleantech startups have started to provide AI-powered energy storage systems that predict demand surges as well as optimize energy use timings.
As the adoption of solar and wind energy is constantly increasing, integrating and managing different energy sources have become more complicated. AI can not only assist in effectively handling these diverse energy loads but also in improving grid stability and efficiency. Apart from energy conservation, cleantech startups rely on AI for smarter waste management systems that sort and recycle waste automatically.
Besides, various groundbreaking patented technologies that are developed for maximizing waste recycling—such as conversion of used plastic into fully refined, high-quality fuel— have an extremely positive environmental impact. In the case of electronic waste or e-waste control, cleantech startups have invented methods to refurbish devices and sell them online with warranties of at least one year.
As the world continues to take bold and innovative strides in balancing growth and environmental concerns, organizations must select solutions that best address their clean technology requirements and help them reduce their carbon footprint. To assist companies with the same, our distinguished panel comprising key decision makers and experts along with StartupCity’s editorial board has shortlisted some of the most effective and innovative cleantech startups.
