Promotion
Success Story / Achievements: 

EnergyIN has been in a growing path as a cluster organisation since its operational start in 2010. It has strived to bring together different companies (including large and small) and research institutions in the field of energy in an effort to develop cluster dynamics. Clustering is a concept that, although proven successful in other sectors and countries, still has not been fully developed for the energy players in Portugal, and EnergyIN has taken up the role of trying to develop a dialogue towards the increased cooperation, innovation and internationalisation. Its impact in business growth and competitiveness is still incipient, as the results are to be expected in the medium and longer term.

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

EnergyIN is the association that in Portugal aims at supporting competitiveness through innovation in the energy sector. In several growing fields, like smart grids, energy efficiency solutions, innovative conversion of renewable energies and EPC projects, or even in energy storage, we have top players in the cluster that can reinforce any ambitious sustainable energy programme, anywhere in the world!
