InnoEnergy Launches Social Media for Sustainable Innovation

InnoEnergy, the innovation engine for Europe’s energy industry, has officially launched CommUnity, an interactive social network to connect the sustainable energy sector.

The platform was unveiled at InnoEnergy’s AlumniUnite event in Barcelona, Spain, from 28-30 October 2016.

Sustainable energy innovators, entrepreneurs and companies from across the world can connect with like-minded individuals by singing up to CommUnity.

The platform is designed to unite sustainable energy actors, stakeholders and innovators, creating a place for them to share ideas and develop energy innovations.

InnoEnergy’s CEO Diego Pavia said: “Social media is central to modern global business. CommUnity will bring this modern, digital channel of communication to the sustainable energy sector.

“The energy industry is facing unique challenges, CommUnity will bring sustainable energy stakeholders together to form innovative ideas, develop new projects and overcome hurdles within the sector.”

CommUnity is also set to become a portal for members to offer and receive jobs and internships, as well as becoming a sustainable energy mentor or mentee.

The launch of CommUnity at AlumniUnite was attended by 200 of InnoEnergy’s alumni, entrepreneurs, students and employees. The event provided an opportunity for attendees to discuss the challenges faced by the energy industry, while energy companies were also able to connect with new talent in the sustainable energy space.

CommUnity is freely available here. A premium membership will also be available, which will unlock further features.
