Energy Innovation Pioneers

Now in its 14th year, we are pleased to announce the 2019 class of Energy Innovation Pioneers at CERAWeek. 

Eight companies and entrepreneurs—representing the vanguard of innovation transforming the energy industry—were selected from a pool of over 500 startups, by a panel of IHS Markit technology experts. Pioneers were chosen based on their creativity, feasibility of business plan, scalability of technology, and leadership team. 

Please join us in the Innovation Agora@CERAWeek, as they share their insights on leading innovation in the energy industry. We will host two Agora Studios with interactive discussions on the intersection of technology and technology with the broader forces driving disruption in the energy industry. The Pioneers will also each host an Agora Pod for deep dives into their technology and how they are disrupting the energy future.
