Partner sought

Companies active in the laser or induction technology sector that are willing to develop an innovate wireless energy transportation system for solar modules and that wish to enter into a research cooperation agreement.

Description

A Brussels-based SME active in the field of flexible thin film solar modules and specialized in offering EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) services for the installation of flexible thin film solar modules is looking to provide new solutions in niche markets with solar energy applications. The company is currently exploring the development of a wireless solar module, to create low weight solar modules without cables. They are looking for partners that can offer induction or laser technologies which are needed to operate the electrical part of photovoltaic panels. The wireless solar module concept is built upon the electrical part of mainstream solar modules that contain 2 or 3 diodes that are supported by cables transporting the produced energy. The innovativeness of creating a wireless solar panel is that the cable part, starting from the diodes on the modules up to the plug of the general cable that goes into the invertor/converter, is replaced by a complete wireless transport system. This can be done via the integration of induction or laser techniques. The initial cells part of the solar module would remain unchanged, but would need to be further enabled by a wireless energy transportation system facilitated by an induction or laser technology. Therefore the company is looking for a laser / induction technology partner, with expertise on the electrical part of the solar module, to enable the wireless transportation of the produced energy which can only be facilitated by laser or induction technology. The company is interested to enter into a research cooperation agreement.

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.
