Wanted! Global Call for clean energy innovations contributing to sustainable industrial development

By 2030, clean energy electricity supply must double to limit global temperature rise. Otherwise, the impacts of climate change could jeopardize global energy security and even threaten the supply of renewable energy.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization’s Global Call 2023, initiated by UNIDO ITPO Beijing, wants proposals for innovative solutions in clean and smart energy that contribute to inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

Multinational corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises and start-ups are invited to submit technological solutions. Criteria for the winning applications include innovative content, competitive advantage and technology maturity of the proposal; contribution to international climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts; and applicability, scalability and possibility of expansion to different geographical and socio-economic contexts, especially in developing countries.

Who can apply

• Multinational corporations
• Small and medium-sized enterprises
• Start-ups
• Technology innovation labs

Winners will get opportunities for matchmaking with investment institutions, industrial parks and local governments; targeted coaching, global matchmaking, and networking support; and opportunities to showcase at global high-level events, including the China International Import Expo in November in Shanghai!
