While Green Tech software has been a hot subject, no pun intended, for a couple of decades, it’s recently surged to the forefront of tech innovation to solve issues without other viable solutions, boding well for the future of renewable, sustainable energy.
Clean, sustainable energy, supported by CleanTech, also known as GreenTech, boomed in 2020 following the post-pandemic surge in oil prices and the war in Ukraine. In 2022, many emerging markets increased their reliance on clean energy, a trend set to continue.
Governments and independent organizations are increasingly more supportive of GreenTech innovations that monitor industrial carbon emissions and other factors, prompting a boom of startups to develop GreenTech IT solutions that achieve sustainable modifications to business processes.
The most significant trend in CleanTech is the integration of renewable energy solutions. Innovations in CleanTech/GreenTech enable the mass production of clean energy while minimizing energy wastage and expenses.
Benefits of GreenTech, aka CleanTech
Innovations in the GreenTech field, also known as CleanTech, enable processes, products, and services with lower environmental impact than other previously established solutions are capable of providing.
CleanTech Innovation Trends Moving Forward
Businesses in the GreenTech sector invest heavily in innovation, especially companies aspiring to pioneer the market. The following are the most popular trends we’ll see gaining traction as the clean, sustainable energy tech boom expands.
- Low-Carbon Technologies
- Renewable Energy
- Electric Vehicles
- Energy Consumption Management
- Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS)
- Green Materials
Examples of Cutting-Edge CleanTech Software Solutions
Persefoni: Carbon-Accounting GreenTech Software Platform
Persefoni enables companies and financial institutions to meet stakeholder and regulatory climate disclosure requirements and requests with automated carbon accounting and financial disclosures.
Beetroot has ongoing cooperation with a similar startup, Normative. Normative helps large companies analyze and calculate sustainability-related data, including CO2 emissions, water, and chemical usage, social responsibility, and more. Normative’s initial codebase needed to be upgraded to handle vast amounts of data, and they were recommended to approach Beetroot. We helped them improve and develop their website back-end, and we’re still working together today.
Libelium: IoT Green Energy Software Products for Water Management
Libelium One is the best device for water management in industrial, agricultural, and Smart Cities environments. Libelium offers a catalog of IoT Green Tech software solutions for Smart Environment, Smart Agriculture, Smart Water, and Air & Noise Monitoring. If you need clean energy software that isn’t in their catalog, Libelium will create a custom SaaS solution that fits your needs.
Trace Genomics: Green Energy Technology for Soil Insights Via Genomics and ML
Trace Genomics uses advanced genomics, unmatched data analysis, and built-in product solutions to translate data into actionable insights regarding soil composition: the biology, physical properties, and chemistry of soil composition.

Factors to Consider When Scaling Up
It’s common for companies in the startup and growth stages to run into issues when scaling their teams up to meet demand. The most significant hurdle for companies in the GreenTech industry, or CleanTech, as well as most tech fields, is sourcing high-quality talent, getting them onboarded, and quickly integrated into your team.
Startups and smaller-sized companies must compete with everyone else to source top talent. When you’re just starting as a company, hiring top talent can be incredibly difficult when huge companies with outrageous compensation packages are courting the software developers and other tech professionals you need.
Benefits of the Dedicated Team Model
