The CleanEquity Monaco Conference recently held its 11th edition as the world’s leading emerging Cleantech event. The conference took place from 8-9th March at the Fairmont Monte Carlo and brought together 27 innovative and sustainable technologies judged by an expert panel including His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco. CleanEquity 2018 showcased revolutionary innovations that will make it easier for property owners and those looking for apartments for sale in Monaco to invest in a cleaner environment.
CleanEquity at a Glance
The annual invitation-only event was co-founded by HSH Prince Albert II and Mungo Park, Chairman and Founder of Innovator Capital. This year, it was once again hosted by Innovator Capital, the London-based specialist investment bank that advises Biomedical and Cleantech companies. The conference gives a platform to inventors and entrepreneurs and allows them to share their stories with delegates. It is an important networking opportunity to engage with key decision makers who can assist them in reaching their commercial and strategic goals. This year, the focus was on an in-depth exploration of transitional energy strategies and the effect of recent developments in ‘new nuclear’.
Since 2007, attending companies have raised an incredible $1.7 billion (€1.41 billion) at CleanEquity. For the 2018 event, Innovator Capital’s CleanEquity unit has sourced over 600 companies, of which some 30 were selected. International partners in Asia, Europe, Australasia, North America and South America helped the event organisers select the shortlist of leading technologies and innovations. HSH Prince Albert II praised the event, saying: “friendships have been forged, and greater strides have been made towards a cleaner, safer and more sustainable future.”
New Princely Initiatives & Sustainability Awards
During the closing ceremony at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo on Friday 9th March, HSH Prince Albert II also announced the creation of a new Award for Sustainability. The aim of the new initiative is to sustain the quality of life in the face of threats such as pollution and climate change. It is associated with the Nobel Sustainability Trust and a Global Green Investment Bank. The inaugural Sustainability Award Ceremony will be hosted in either 2020 or 2021.
This year’s three award winners were also announced at the closing ceremony. The winners were Superdielectrics, NanoSpun Technologies and BBOXX. Superdielectrics won the Award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Research. They have opened the gates to a new type of energy storage technology that is superior to existing battery technology. BBOXX was the winner of the Award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Commercialisation. The researchers at BBOXX have found ways to bypass expensive traditional grid infrastructure and provide smart solar energy in developing countries.

The biotech company is recognised as a global leader in improving industrial biological-based processes.
We’re excited to see how future developments unfold to make the world a more environmentally friendly and sustainable place. We also look forward to seeing how these advanced technologies are implemented in Monaco’s property market.
