ENEL launches call for development of renewable energy technologies
Enel has launched a call for the development of innovative projects in the renewable energy field.
The Group is offering small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups the opportunity to collaborate with the specialised technicians and use the Catania Enel Innovation Hub’s facilities in Passo Martino, in Sicily, for the design, implementation and testing of the ideas selected.
The call was presented by Ernesto Ciorra, Director of Enel’s Global Innovation and Sustainability division, at the "Open Innovation in Enel" conference, which was held in the main lecture hall of the University of Catania.
Companies interested in the initiative can submit their projects on the www.openinnovability.enel.com platform by November 15th.
The ideas should regard the development of innovative technology solutions in the field of renewable energy e.g.
- New solar generation modules
- Components and tools for optimising plant performance
- Automation systems and artificial intelligence applied to the construction and operation of plants
