ENERGY SECTOR: ENDESA

Endesa

Endesa, in its commitment to supporting talent in innovation and research, is seeking solutions to its new technological challenge in Transfiere, “Alternative solution to the use of Generators in the MV/LV Network”.

When an incident occurs in the MV/LV network, whether programmed or unforeseen, there is a possibility of feeding all or part of the affected network with Generators in order to reduce the real affectation, decreasing the TIEPI of the incident. There are situations in which the Generating Sets currently used by Endesa may not be valid for several reasons: size, noise, environmental conditions, availability of the resource (Installation time or transfer to the incident site) or cost. In addition, it would be interesting to be able to geolocate these assets and see their actual state for more efficient use.

GOAL: for the third consecutive edition, Endesa is looking for innovative proposals in Transfiere, especially for the implementation of a smaller-sized, much more quietly, more flexible and/or a substancially more economic MV/LV network supply system than the current ones. On the other hand, as an alternative, it is proposed to be able to have a system that allows to locate the current devices and to see their state in real time to improve the efficiency of the operation. Know the details here.

Those research groups, technology centres, start-ups or spin-offs interested in presenting their technological capabilities to this challenge should contact the organisation before 7 February 2020.

The pooling of this challenge along with its research work will take place within the framework of Transfiere, in a private meeting (previous signatura of confidentiality agreement by both parties) held in the Open Innovation Area.

For the third consecutive year, the multinational engineering and consultancy firm specialised in aeronautics, AERTEC SOLUTIONS, is seeking solutions in Transfiere to its new technological challenge “Digital data transformation for new business models in airports”

AERTEC SOLUTIONS seeks innovative solutions to create new business models based on the Digital Transformation in the exploitation of data generated at an airport. Find out all the detailed information here.

GOAL: to analyze business models based on the Digital Transformation applied in the exploitation of data from an airport, which allows to make profitable the potential investments in new systems or the already existing ones, through their capture, analysis and exploitation. Airports are immersed in a process of continuous modernization. However, it is not enough to deploy technology, however innovative it may be, but this technology has to demonstrate a tangible value contribution to the business. We understand that many of the existing technologies, despite providing real value to stakeholders, have not been deployed at an airport due to the lack of an economic model that makes them viable.

Those research groups, technology centres, start-ups or spin-offs interested in presenting their technological capabilities to this challenge should contact the organisation before 7 February 2020.

The sharing of the challenge with the research will take place in the framework of Transfer, in a private meeting within the Open Innovation Area, with previous signature of a confidentiality agreement by both parties.
