The winners of the EDF Pulse Start‑up Awards
From exoskeletons that help paraplegics walk again and folding electric scooters to the battery of the future, augmented wood and even natural lighting via fibre-optic cable, the winners of the EDF Pulse Start-up Awards have been submitting the most cutting-edge technology of the future ever since 2014.
The winners of the 2022 Edition
On the 8th of March 2023, the winners of the 2022 EDF Pulse Start‑up Awards were honored in a ceremony chaired by Luc Rémont, Chairman and CEO of the EDF Group. With more than 265 candidate projects across 33 countries, this 8th edition highlighted the dynamism of low carbon innovative projects. Discover the four winning start‑ups.
"Low-carbon production" category winner, Value Park aims to make human and digital activity “parks” more viable by producing sustainable frigories from deep sea water for air conditioning to coastal or floating infrastructure without any electricity.
"Low-carbon consumption" category winner, Olenergies wants to deploy OlenMove, an innovative and sustainable mobile energy storage solution that is remotely controlled and optimized, enabling the supply of devices that use electricity in public spaces to replace polluting generators.
"Decarbonizing through digital technology" category winner, Fruggr measures and improves the carbon footprint of digital services.
"Making business simpler and safer" category winner, Safehear designed Louis: communicating hearing protection for industry. Daily companion for workers in factories and worksites, Louis allows you to give back one of the 5 senses to its user: hearing.

This small, flexible, paper-thin battery, created from bio-sourced materials, is revolutionising the market for the button batteries used in small disposable electronic devices.
Small and easily attached to any tools, InBolt modules record the movements of technicians working on industrial production lines, enabling them to apply real-time quality control.
This mobile battery recovers waste heat from industrial processes and recycles it in the form of heating or cooling wherever it is needed. An effective way of boosting the contribution made by renewables and reducing CO2 emissions.
This intentionally low-tech solution, mobile and energy self-sufficient, uses pyrolysis technology to recycle plastic waste into petrol, diesel and gas.
Removing the cost disincentive around buying sports equipment or paying club membership fees. By purchasing their products from a partner store, consumers are now accumulating euros to fund their sports activities.
This solution makes cancer treatment more automated, personalised and adaptive, achieving excellent clinical results.
This solar kit is as easy to install as a TV or a fridge. Simply plug it into a power socket to convert the solar energy into electricity.
This solution allows users to remotely monitor chronic wounds, alert nurses in case of infection and speed up the healing process.
This highly resistant engine transforms solar energy into mechanical energy without any conversion electronics, making it well adapted to remote locations and extreme climates.
