Partnering opportunity

Brussels-based SME is looking to join a consortium for H2020 call LC-SC3-RES9-2020 on next generation of thin-film photovoltaic technologies

Summary

A Brussels SME that offers a flexi thin solar film concept is interested in joining a consortium to develop a project proposal under the H2020 call LC-SC3-RES9-2020 ‘Next generation of thin-film photovoltaic technologies’. Deadline: 11 December 2019. The Brussels SME is specialized in offering EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) services for the installation of flexible thin solar films and is looking to develop a business case and exploitation strategy for this technology.

Partner sought

Research partners that could measure and monitor the financial and environmental impact of thin film devices and partners that are interested in applying the technology on the roofs of their buildings (industrial /heritage) and/or on vehicles (private or public transport operators).

Description

The Brussels-based company is a young SME (≥10) eager to join an established H2020 consortium to further test their technology in a variety of different settings and countries for the topic LC-SC3-RES9-2020 ‘Next generation of thin-film photovoltaic technologies’. It is an Innovation Action and the deadline is 11 December 2019. The proposed flexible thin solar film solution is based upon an innovative copper indium gallium selenide solar cells technology (CIGS) where low-weight flexible modules can be placed on smooth surfaces / rooftops (0-90 degrees slope) with a weak structure or rooftops that are difficult to access for installation. Due to the flexibility of the material the modules can be installed on different types of buildings (industrial/public buildings/heritage) and temporary infrastructures (such as tents/shelters) but also on vehicles (buses, barges, trains, refrigerated trucks) and even on wind turbine towers. The proposed technology has already been tested in different settings and countries and reaches TRL 4-5. Type of partners sought are research partners that could measure and monitor the financial and environmental impact of thin film devices and partners that are interested in applying the technology on the roofs of their buildings (industrial, public and /or heritage) and/or on vehicles (private or public transport operators).

Advantages and innovations

- lower the cost and environmental impact of next generation thin-film photovoltaic technologies and increase their efficiency, stability, device life time and performance, reliability and recyclability. - new PV applications and new route for European PV manufacturing industry

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
