Rockstart Smart Energy Demoday 2016: a look at the 10 pitching startups

For the third time in its existence, the Rockstart Smart Energy batch of startups presented their businesses during a Demo Day. A summary of the 10 pitches. 

Program director Smart Energy Freerk Bisschop explained the focus of this year's startups: Internet of Things and (to a lesser extent) Artificial Intelligence. IoT of course is relevant to energy – the more devices connected, the more energy will be consumed. AI can be used for the virtual assistance in, for instance, energy management and in chatbots.
