Consultancy services on future renewable energy systems



Service ID:

Service description

1-3-month support service directed to all EIC beneficiaries which are part of the energy system value chain. The service may cover one or several of the following activities: 

1) Assessment of the energetic potential of available renewable energy sources (including wind and solar) and adequacy and viability of different technologies to harness the available resources; 

2) Due diligence for technological solutions; 

3) High resolution energy system planning at different levels, accounting for social, environmental and technical impacts of energy resources (holistic and integrated modelling of energy systems at multiple scales); 

4) Assessment of climate change impacts on the energy system (e.g. buildings, networks, demand & supply; heating & cooling needs); infrastructure resilience & risks; adaptation and mitigation pathways for the energy systems;

5) Experimental validation and testing of energy-related technological solutions contributing to decarbonisation (incl. energy storage) at the prototype stage in relevant/operational environments. 

Includes digitalization solutions for cost reduction and operation optimization. Offline implementation.

Technology Readiness Level
TRL 5 – Technology validated in relevant environment
TRL 6 – Technology demonstrated in relevant environment
TRL 7 – System prototype demonstration in operational environment
TRL 8 – System complete and qualified
TRL 9 – Actual system proven in operational environment
Financial requirements

Service will be charged as full payment. Specialized consulting studies: average daily rate of about €300; Experimental validation and testing of technological solutions for energy systems (incl. energy storage) at the prototype stage in relevant/operational environments: an average daily rate in the range of €300-450, depending on the type of technology in focus.
