REQUEST from Spain, reference: RDES20180705001, valid from 05-07-2018 untill 15-09-2018

Research & Development
  • Start date:
    5 juli 2018
  • End date:
    15 september 2018
  • Summary:
    A Spanish company working in energy efficiency is preparing a project proposal for Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase II. The objective of the project is to develop a Big Data solution to provide relevant information both to energy consumers, who will have a better understanding of invoices and will receive recommendations for energy efficiency, and to utilities, that will better understand their clients’ needs. Energy producers and distributors are sought to act as test cases in the project.
  • Description:
    The aim of the project is the development and pre-commercialization of a Big Data solution that will provide relevant information to the different energy market players. The system will analyse big data obtained from different sources and test results. The processed information will allow the user an easy way of understanding invoiced consumptions and obtaining recommendations on improving energy efficiency, thus making savings. For utilities, the information provided will make easier to understand the clients’ needs, enabling to provide a better service, new services, providing clients with a more adjusted offer to their needs, and therefore improving client’s loyalty. The solution will also provide large consumers with intelligent energy efficiency systems, and utilities with commercial and market intelligence.
    The Spanish company is going to submit the proposal to SME Instrument phase II, and is looking for collaborators that may want to provide with data, test the technology for energy efficiency, and reach pre-commercial agreements on technology either for energy consumers or utilities.
    The Spanish company has already 3 partners for this project, all of them utilities from Spain, Portugal and Brazil.
    Estimated Project Duration: 2 years - Phase II SME Instrument SME. (Technology Readiness Level TRL6 to TRL9)
    EOI Deadline: 15th September 2018
    Call Deadline: 10th October 2018.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    Research cooperation agreement
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    Electric utilities, energy distribution companies or other companies that have access to considerable number of energy consumers and that want to collaborate with the Spanish company as test cases for their technologies.

  • Advantages and Innovations:
    The main innovation of the project is not only the technology used, the intelligent integration of already innovative elements as: Internal and External Data Hybridization Systems, Descriptive Analytic Systems, Usability Systems, etc., but also the information provided to energy consumers and utilities.
    The first, consumer, will be able to understand its consumption and will receive sufficient information so to improve in energy efficiency. The second, utility, will have giant amounts of analysed energy data available so to, identify client’s needs, opportunities, provide a better and more complete service, etc.
