EU cleantech funding at an all-time high

A record-breaking €7 billion has been invested in EU cleantech startups so far this year.

The EU Cleantech Quarterly Briefing Q2 2021, published by Cleantech for Europe, showed that cleantech investment reached an all-time high in the first part of this year.

The briefing, part of a new series tracking EU cleantech investment, shows an increase in later stage deals, and especially in megadeals, which for the first time are coming close to the funding amounts regularly seen in the US and Asia.

These cleantech figures are part of a wider trend of record venture capital funding for startups across all sectors.

The thriving EU cleantech innovation scene is all set to scale, and the climate policy reviews (such as Fit for 55) set to take place this year are a fantastic opportunity to support this growth trend as well as inspiring the future innovations we need to reach net zero.

Cleantech for Europe’s mission is to form a new partnership between the EU cleantech community and policy makers, to help make this change happen.

Register for our inaugural summit on 8th September, online and in Brussels, to hear from the practitioners and policy makers who are seizing the EU’s man on the moon moment.
