Earlier this year, the Lux Energy Team conducted an analysis to highlight the hottest energy topics and which companies rose to the top during an event-filled 2019 in the energy transition. With the pace of activity picking up, we felt it would be valuable to provide a midterm update to start off the second half of the year. In this blog, we identify the best tech startups in the energy space that we interviewed and highlight the most important industry developments in the first six months of the year. See the following blog post for more details on the four new storylines launched this year.

Out of all the companies the Energy Team profiled, 26 were rated “Positive” or “Strong Positive” across six topics.

These innovation-related events span from partnerships and investments to new research and new factories and include information about the companies involved and our own takes on the developments.
