Winner

BeOn Energy
Develops microinverters and DIY Solar Kits specifically designed to plug solar systems to wall sockets, producing economic energy for self-consumption.



Finalists

APERIO Systems
Aperio provides resilience against all malicious actors aiming to cause critical physical damage in industrial and infrastructure settings such as power grids. Aperio’s software detects and defends against any type of sensor-related data forgery, as well as provide data quality insights into sensor malfunctions. Once Aperio detects a forgery, they will be able to recover the ground truth and restore state awareness to the operators.
