SINN Power CEO Philipp Sinn had just five minutes to convince the audience at the New Year’s Reception of the German Renewable Energy Federation of the ecological and economic benefits of SINN Power’s wave energy converter. That was enough: By a clear margin, the more than 1,000 selected industry experts and decision-makers voted for SINN Power as the most innovative renewable energy startup.
The BEE Innovation Award is awarded every year at the New Year’s Reception, the biggest renewables industry meeting in Germany. The German Renewable Energy Federation (Bundesverband Erneuerbare Energie, BEE) is the umbrella organization for German renewable energy associations. It represents more than 30,000 individual members and companies active in wind and solar energy, biomass, water power and geothermal energy.
